Every month, one metagame is chosen by the community to have its own ladder. The process works as follows: near the end of the month, nominations and voting will be held for the next OM of the Month. Nominations will be open for two to three days, during which time you may nominate an existing metagame. Voting will then be opened, for three to four days, during which time users can vote for any metagame nominated. Whichever metagame receives the most votes is named the Other Metagame of the Month! However, if a metagame receives a ladder for one month, it may not be picked for another four months.

Current OMotM: Trademarked

- Do not nominate metagames in the blacklist, or those whose thread has been locked.
- You are not allowed to make any posts except to nominate.
- Your account must be at least one week old and must have at least five forum posts to nominate and vote.
- During the voting stage, you "like" posts to vote for that metagame. You can vote for as many as you want.
- Do not promote an OM over another or voting for any specific OM on Smogon, Pokemon Showdown, and public Discords. This includes via private messages.

If any of the above rules are broken, your vote will not be counted. Continued rule breaking may result in further punishment.

A list of all the metagames can be found in the Index.

We may choose to reject a metagame if it has not been coded and is deemed too difficult.

In addition to the metagame chosen by the community, a second metagame will also be selected every month. This metagame will be chosen by the OM Leaders and will receive a ladder on the main server. We may choose OMs with rising popularity, OMs that aren't popular and need a kickstart, or mashups between two OMs!

Current Leader's Choice: Ultimate Z
