Welcome to the third Monotype Cup! The tournament will feature the 5 most recent Monotype metagames being SV, SS, SM, ORAS, and BW. The SV Monotype Cup will count towards the circuit, however, the old generation cups and the playoffs will not be included in Monotype's Ribbon Circuit.

The format starts with the regular season, which consists of five separate tournaments: The SV Monotype Cup, the SS Monotype Cup, the SM Monotype Cup, the ORAS Monotype Cup, and the BW Monotype Cup. The point system for the cups is the same as the one used in previous 5 format Smogon Grand Slam Tournaments (see this for further explanation). When all the Cups have been finished, the sixteen players with the most points will qualify for playoffs, where the battlers will duke it out in a single elimination bracket until the first Monotype Cup champion is crowned. The playoffs of this tournament will feature a cash prize!
