Approved by the Monotype Mod Team / Art by internet
Welcome to the third iteration of the Monotype Generations Tour and its first official introduction into the Monotype Circuit. It will work similarly to last year's where it focuses on the three most recent generations of Monotype: BW, ORAS, and USM. The first tier to be played, as usual, is USM Monotype. The loser then decides which generation is played next, between ORAS and BW Monotype. If a third game needs to be played, the remaining generation will act as the deciding format.

USM, ORAS, and BW2 Monotype should be played in their respective formats; [Gen 7] Monotype, [Gen 6] Monotype, and [Gen 5] Monotype. Each Generation of Monotype in this tour has a challengable format, please use them in this tour! Unlike the previous years, there will be a slight twist. This year's season will be included in the 2019 Monotype Circuit and rather than being single elimination, it will be a double elimination tour; scoring points will mirror that of a Monotype Seasonals.

Monotype Generations Tour I
Monotype Generations Tour II
SPECIFIC RULES:

  • This tournament will be Double Elimination.
  • All rounds will be Best of Three.
  • USM is the first generation played in each round. The loser gets to pick the next generation played.
  • Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown, which is the Main server or Smogon Tours servers. Matches played on any other server will be void and must be redone on one of those 2 servers.
  • To encourage the development of the metagames, and so that everyone is on an even playing field, all matches must have replays recorded. If neither player posts or at least saves replays of the match, the game will be coin flipped regardless of whoever won.
General Tournament Rules / Guidelines:
  • Identity: I expect many battles to be completed under alts. This can be bad for tournament security, and thus I will make this clear: If I hear any whispers of identity theft (battling as someone you are not) or proxy battling (helping someone else battle through pm) I will not be pleased and I will take severe actions.
  • Scouting: Next, I do not want to hear anything about counter teaming, at all. Do not complain about it. I also don't want to hear about any blatant scouting. There is a difference between "[user] is known for using Fire-type" and "let me follow [user] around all day to watch all his battles since I am his opponent". I expect a lot of the former and none of the latter. I give permission to all battlers to ask any person spectating their battle to leave if they do not want them watching. Everyone will have access to your replays from earlier rounds though.
  • Timer Clause: As for taking long between moves, if your opponent asks you to hurry up, please oblige. If you are doing a damage calc for a key turn that is one thing but prolonging every move is suspicious and annoying. Don't do it. Furthermore, Battle Timeout is a rule for a reason. If you run out of time, you lose, simple as that. It does not matter what your opponent says. Do not battle if you think you will have to leave mid battle, and instead reschedule for a better time.
  • Disconnections: Finally, in the case of a disconnect, the decision is in the hands of the player who did not disconnect. The options are: redo the battle move for move, redo the battle with the same teams but different moves, or redo the battle with completely different teams. If the battle was without a doubt over, they may also take the win. Any suspicion that a disconnect was committed on purpose to redo a match may be appealed to me, and if I feel this happened there will be severe consequences, don't do it.
