RBY Cup Finals

Tournament Rules:
  • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here.
  • Smogon Classic rules can be read here
  • Standard RBY OU
  • Best of three, single elimination.
  • Battles should take place on Pokemon Showdown!
  • Do not make baseless activity posts -- get in contact with your opponent and report missed times / scheduling issues only.
This is just a small snippet of the full rules, which one can find here!


About playing on alts: It is entirely allowed to play on an alt other than your own main forum name, though if your opponent wishes to confirm your identity, you must log on to your main alt to show them you are who you claim to be. This is to prevent people from pretending to be who they're not.

About playing on different servers: Tournament matches must be played on the Smogtours server. The Main PS! server is also acceptable if both parties agree to that. Other servers are not sanctioned by the TD team and playing in them might result in your game not counting. Protect yourself from that by playing in Smogtours, where we also have the power to recreate games that end due to DC's.


On scouting opponents: Going through your opponents replays of tournament and ladder games is entirely allowed, as long as a game is public there is nothing preventing you from watching it. An exception to this is abusing powers granted to you by being staff on Smogon or PS! to gain access to information a normal user wouldn't have access to, which is strictly forbidden.

On leaking teams: Divulging private information about someone's planned team to their opponent is never allowed, and will be heavily sanctioned. Requesting that such information be divulged is also grounds for punishment. Keep your scouting to publicly available information and you'll be fine.

Timer Clause / Disconnections

On the Timer: The timer must stay on throughout the whole battle..

On Timeout losses: A player that loses by having all his time run out loses the game. This is only not the case if the player that received the timeout loss can be verified to have suffered a True Disconnection. Rematches are only allowed if there was a True Disconnection.

On True Disconnection: The TD team has a secret threshold of seconds that your timer must be at or above, from the moment you disconnect, for a timeout loss to be considered a True disconnection. If your game is determined to be a true disconnection if you played on Smogtours and contacted a TD before the room expired your game will be recreated up to the point the disconnect happened. It is the responsibility of the player that disconnected to get a TD into the room before it expires.

Battle Clauses:
  • Evasion Clause
  • OHKO Clause
  • Sleep Clause
  • Species Clause
  • Timed Battle
  • Freeze Clause
  • Dig/Fly Glitch Prevention Clause
  • Desync Clause Mod

congrats spies! really nice run, well deserved. this set was awesome to watch especially the game 3

Maya Chansey really happy to see you finally sign up for a tour like this. you've always been a monster in rby and you were especially incredible in this tour. i hope you play more rby on smogon in the future, would be dope to see you in spl
I won in a wild series of RBY, was insane and luck ended up calling it.


Congrats to Maya Chansey on the great run, you won your sets with authority while sticking to your style. It was great playing you in finals after sharing tips throughout the tour, you are definitely one of the best players around here.

Shoutout to chuva de perereca who's been helping me prep the whole tour. Thanks to his help I managed to branch out from my admittedly outdated look at the metagame. You're ridiculous at this game and surely are gonna prove it in tournaments soon.

Shoutouts to my boomer friends gotei(13) hyorinmaru and gorgie, it's crazy to see you dudes still here.

Thanks to everyone who has sent kind words!
