RoA Forum Championship [1, 2, 3,
4] involves inviting all winners of major RoA tournaments, and RoA Room Championship winners since the last edition to participate in either a round-robin division for a specific generation or the RoA multi-gen round-robin division.

Past Gen Championships [1, 2,
3] consists of a first-to-2-win single elimination playoffs (top 16) for each generation, involving qualification points from Global Championships and Classic Cups (Type A+: worth 40%), Winter and Summer Seasonals (Type A-: worth 30%) and RoA / Smogon Tour (Type B worth 30%). Winning these championships awards you a ribbon in your postbit. See the 2018 (first year) qualification post here and 2019 update.

Winter and Summer Seasonals are two standard double elimination tournaments for each old generation's OverUsed tier, which serve as the 2 of 4 past gen circuit majors, along with Classic cups and Global Championships.

Global Championships are first-to-2-win double-elimination per round tournaments, where each player is randomly paired twice. If they win twice, they are through; if they lose twice, they are out; and if they win 1 and lose 1, they go into a tiebreak match to decide which 1 of 2 players go through.

Classic Cups are first-to-2 win single eliminations tournaments, 5 of which are part of the Official Tournament known as
Smogon Classic, with RBY, GSC, ADV, DPP and BW Cups earning you points towards entry into the Smogon Classic Playoffs. Winning the playoffs awards you with a trophy in your postbit. The remaining unofficial SM and ORAS Cups, along with the individual official ones, count towards RoA Forum and Past Gen Championships.

Smogon Premier League [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12] is a 10-team, 12-slot, franchise-based team tournament, with 9 weeks of qualifying and 2 weeks playoffs. Being on the winning team of the playoffs awards you with a trophy in your postbit.

RoA Premier League [
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6] is RoA's version of SPL, a franchise-based team tournament with currently 12 slots, 2 per old generation OU and 8 teams, for a total of 7 weeks qualifying and 2 weeks playoffs.

The Gen-centric Premier Leagues are 6-team franchise-based team tournaments centered around a specific old generation each. They may allow the manager to play due to their small size. They are currently RBYPL [
1], GSCPL [1] and ADVPL [1].

World Cup of Pokémon [2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15] is a nations-based team tournament which features a qualifying tournament going into a 16-team 10-slot main tournament. Slots are current gen OU. For a period, OU was featured in all generations, with old generations occupying a slot each. Being on the winning team of the playoffs awards you with a trophy in your postbit.

Retro Cup of Pokémon is a team tournament format based of off World Cup of Pokémon which pits nations together in old generation OUs not featured in WCoP.

RoA Team Trials
is a single elimination team tournament currently featuring Gens 1-5 OU. Each individual match is a first-to-2-win series, with the collective series being best of 5. Players are locked to tiers.


RoA Olympics
[
1, 2, 3, 4, 5] is a hybrid team-individual tournament whereby players of a team are selected to compete in individual tournaments for a number of old generation tiers where they can be awarded gold, silver and bronze for finishing 1st, 2nd and 3rd place respectively and earn points based on those finishes. The team with the highest points at the conclusion is the winner of the RoA Olympics. Features Ubers and UU Tiers.

Major League RoA [
1, 2, 3, 4, 5] is a round-robin based tournament where players are split into conferences based on their timezones. The top 4 from each conference goes into a top 16 playoffs where they play first-to-3-wins matches until they are either eliminated or become the Major League champion.

Smogon Tour
is Smogon's biggest series of live tournaments, featuring the latest 3 generation OU tiers, currently USM, ORAS and BW over 9 weeks, concluding in a 16-man first-to-2-win playoffs. Winning the playoffs awards you with a trophy in your postbit.
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30]
RoA Tour [
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8] is RoA's version of Smogon Tour, a series of live tournaments, culminating in an 8-man first-to-2-win single elimination playoffs, featuring all the OU tiers (currently DPP, ADV, GSC, RBY) of the discontinued tiers from Smogon Tour, i.e. RoA Tour and Smogon Tour complement one another.

RoA Ladder Tournament is RoA's version of OLT, with a week for each old generation OU which earn you points, with the top 16 qualifying for a first-to-2-win-squared single elimination tournament in all tiers.

RoA Standard Tournament [1, 2, 3,
4] is an elimination tournament featuring all old generation OU tiers every round.

Victory RoAd
[
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9] is a gym leader-esque challenge consisting of veteran trainers for each old generation OU, most of which have to be defeated to qualify for
Indigo Plateau. The Winter season is intended to feature UU tiers, while the Summer Season Ubers tiers.


Indigo Plateau
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7] functions as the playoffs for those who have successfully conquered Victory RoAd. Only one of these conquerors can claim the trophy, via a round-robin or single elimination tournament if necessary.

RoA Room Championship Playoffs occur almost every month, and allow a whole month period for you to qualify for the top 8 single elimination first-to-3-win playoffs via live Pokémon Showdown tournaments in the Ruins of Alph room, with a leaderboard present following the conclusion of each live tournament.

Underlined tournaments in the descriptions indicate team tournaments.
