Use Snorlax. It's good.

Tournament Rules:
  • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
  • Smogon Classic rules can be read here.
  • Standard GSC OU
  • Best of three, single elimination.
  • Battles should take place on Pokemon Showdown!
  • Do not make baseless activity posts, get in contact with your opponent and report missed times / scheduling issues only.

About playing on alts: It is entirely allowed to play on an alt other than your own main forum name, though if your opponent wishes to confirm your identity, you must log on to your main alt to show them you are who you claim to be. This is to prevent people from pretending to be who they're not.

About playing on different servers: Tournament matches must be played on the Smogtours server. The Main PS! server is also acceptable if both parties agree to that. Other servers are not sanctioned by the TD team and playing in them might result in your game not counting. Protect yourself from that by playing in Smogtours, where we also have the power to recreate games that end due to DC's.


On scouting opponents: Going through your opponents replays of tournament and ladder games is entirely allowed, as long as a game is public there is nothing preventing you from watching it. An exception to this is abusing powers granted to you by being staff on Smogon or PS! to gain access to information a normal user wouldn't have access to, which is strictly forbidden.

On leaking teams: Divulging private information about someone's planned team to their opponent is never allowed, and will be heavily sanctioned. Requesting that such information be divulged is also grounds for punishment. Keep your scouting to publicly available information and you'll be fine.

Timer Clause / Disconnections

On the Timer: The timer must stay on throughout the whole battle, only being turned off in the case of a player disconnecting, and in that case will only be turned off for 5 minutes (keep in mind that this is a interim solution while we wait on PS! developers). The timer may not be turned off in any other circumstance.

On Timeout losses: A player that loses by having all his time run out loses the game. This is only not the case if the player that received the timeout loss can be verified to have suffered a True Disconnection. Rematches in such cases are not allowed.

On True Disconnection: The TD team has a secret threshold of seconds that your timer must be at or above, from the moment you disconnect, for a timeout loss to be considered a True disconnection. If your game is determined to be a true disconnection if you played on Smogtours and contacted a TD before the room expired your game will be recreated up to the point the disconnect happened. It is the responsibility of the player that disconnected to get a TD into the room before it expires.

Battle Clauses:
  • Evasion Clause
  • OHKO Clause
  • Species Clause
  • Sleep Clause
  • Sleep + Trapping Clause
  • Freeze Clause
  • Timed Battle

We played 350 turns and I told you I had to leave soon for only 15-20 and asked several times for a rematch when I came back when you said you wouldn't even try to stop the timer. I was in a winning position so I don't understand why we couldn't/can't just do that

Ok so Jimmy VMd me asking to play on Saturday because he was going to be busy on Sunday. However, on Friday, because some irl stuff I had to change my plans for Saturday so I asked him to reschedule and play in another day. He refused to play on Friday (because he already had other games, fair) and on Sunday (because he was going to be busy as he told me). So we got an extension. Ok, fine.

We got the extension and I asked him to play on Wednesday (he was MIA on Monday and Tuesday). I told him that I was going to be online at around 8 PM GMT +2. I was online at smogtours and in discord since like 7 PM and I didnt see him online. I also didnt get any message from him. After that I went to have dinner and when I came back (at like 9:15 PM) he apparently had already left (lol less than 1 hour online to play a GSC bo3). I still stayed online until midnight, but he never got online again, even if he messaged me at midnight.
I asked him to play again today when I saw him online and he refused to play because he didnt have time.

I dont see why he should get the activity win, when I have been way more active in both discord and smogtours this round.
