Are you ready to charge at your opponents like Tauros, electrify them like Raikou, flood them like Kyogre, make them have nightmares like Darkrai, and fool them like Zoroark? If yes, then this is the tournament for you! Welcome to the third annual Random Battles Classic Open! This tournament is your chance to showcase your skills in the first 5 generations of Randbats, from RBY through BW2, in a best-of-5 series. The first player to 3 wins advances to the next round!

This tournament is the first of many tours as a part of our ongoing Rands Slam circuit. Stay tuned after this tour for news about the next one!

The winner of the Random Battles Classic Open will receive the Room Prize Winner rank in the Random Battles room for a month, be inducted into the Randbats Hall of Fame, and be awarded points for the Rands Slam. The winner of the Playoffs Round will receive a Smogon banner for a full year, along with a month-long Room Prize Winner rank and joinphrase.

How does the tour work?

Each generation will be played one time, with no repeats (so series that go to a 5th game will see players play all 5 of the oldest Randbats formats). The order of generations does NOT need to be chronological. Instead:
1. Contact your opponent and determine which generation will be played first. If you cannot agree on a format, use the command “!roll 5” on PS to randomly pick a starting generation.
2. Battle each other in the chosen generation.
3. Loser picks the next generation to play. Battles continue, generation by generation, until one player has 3 wins.

Please note:

1. All scheduling attempts MUST be done publicly on Smogon Walls. No other proof of communication will count for act calls regarding scheduling attempts.

2. You MUST post replays of your wins.

We strongly recommend familiarizing yourself with the Smogon Tournament Rules and General Guidelines, if you haven’t already. If you have further questions, don’t hesitate to contact the tour hosts, Clementine, javitu and myself, here on Smogon.

When spectating Rands Slam battles, do not ghost. Ask yourself, “Would my comment reveal information that hasn’t already been explicitly revealed in this battle?” Examples of ghosting include pointing out that an unexpectedly fast Pokemon must be holding a Choice Scarf, that a Zoroark's disguised level proves it's a Zoroark, etc.

How do I sign up?

Just post "in"!

The deadline for signups is Sunday March 27th, 2022.

Good Luck and Have Fun to everyone taking part!
