Systemic racism and police violence have destroyed innumerable lives and communities. While the world faces a global pandemic, the United States is dealing with a pandemic of its own, one born out of a long history of racist policing that has led to overincarceration, the decay of civil rights and even outright murder. Smogon stands with the protesters across the world who are rising up against the senseless brutality that has led to the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and countless others.

To that end, Smogon is hosting its first ever Charity Bowl, a live tournament to take place on Saturday, June 20, 2020 at 12 PM EST (GMT -4). The Smogon Charity Bowl will be raising funds for the following organizations:
  • NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund
  • Black Lives Matter Global Network
  • The Bail Project
  • The National Police Accountability Project
You can join us for this tournament as a participant, or follow the action live on our Twitch streams at Smogon will be raising money via donations throughout the event, and will contribute an additional $100 in the winner’s name. We are encouraging all participants and spectators to stand with us against police violence and injustice by giving today at


The Smogon Charity Bowl will consist of two parts: a live tournament qualifier, immediately followed by seeded best-of-three playoffs for the top 8. The format will be Sword & Shield OU.

These sign-ups are for the LIVE TOURNAMENT QUALIFIER. Players will be randomly divided into two groups. Each group will play in a live best-of-one tournament, following the same rules and format as the Smogon Tour. The top 4 from each live tournament will advance to playoffs. Playoffs will be seeded based on live tournament results, and will be played in a best-of-three format.

- This tournament will be held on the official Smogon Tournament server at All games MUST take place on this server.
- Send a PM to "kjdaas" on SmogTours when you win your match. Do **NOT** PM the host if you lost.
- The format for the tournamet is SS OU! The current banlist on Smogon University is in effect. This includes all post-DLC updates.

General rules
  • You must have a Smogon forum account to sign up for this tournament. You cannot participate if you do not post in this thread.
  • When this tour is posted, post as quickly as you can to ensure a place in the tournament. The number of spots available will vary from week to week, and it is up to the discretion of the host on when sign-ups will be closed. On Xenforo (our current forum software), YOUR POST NUMBER IS NOT ALWAYS ACCURATE. Do NOT complain to the host or on SmogTours if your post number implies you should have been in the tournament and you are not.
  • Substitute players will only be applied in the first round and as deemed necessary by the host.
  • If you have signed up successfully, you must stay for the entire tournament unless you have lost.
  • You may change teams between rounds without penalty. You are, in fact, encouraged to do so to prevent your opponents from knowing your team in advance.
  • Do not hassle the host(s) of the tournament.
Smogon Tour Battling rules:
  • All tiers are based on Smogon tiers. The current status of the appropriate standard ladder will function as the prevailing tier list. If you have any question about whether a particular Pokemon is banned or not in any particular tier, reference the banlist of the appropriate ladder on PS! with '/tier'. This is not confusing. There will be no exceptions.
  • Species Clause: A player cannot have two (2) of the same species of Pokemon on their team, based on National Pokedex number. For example, a player cannot have two Koffing on their team.
  • Sleep Clause: A player cannot put two or more different opposing Pokemon to sleep using attacks that induce sleep to opposing Pokemon.
  • Evasion Clause: A player cannot increase their Pokemon's evasion stat with a move that specifically increases evasion. Items or indirect boosts do not break this clause.
  • OHKO Clause: A player cannot use a move that has a chance of instantly KOing an opposing Pokemon. For example, Horn Drill or Sheer Cold are illegal moves.
  • Timer Clause: If a player exhausts the timer, that player loses. SmogTours staff will not turn the timer off in any circumstance.
  • Self-KO Clause: If a player uses a recoil move to cause a draw, that player wins. If a player uses Explosion, Selfdestruct, Destiny Bond, or Perish Song to cause a draw, that player loses. If a draw would be caused by a hold item or ability that causes recoil to the opponent, the player that controls the Pokémon with the hold item or ability wins. (This clause helps determine the winner of what would be called a tie in DPP. Later generations do not apply this clause, because their cartridge mechanics will prevent ties from happening.)
  • Endless Battle Clause: A player cannot use a combination of items / moves / abilities to force a game that will never end (example: Recycle / Leppa Berry / Heal Pulse, etc).
  • Moody Clause: A player can not use the ability Moody.


In addition to the $100 contribution made in their name, the winner will also receive a prize banner to appear on their Smogon account. In addition, the following Pokemon Showdown prizes are being offered:
  • A custom avatar.
  • The ability to recolor your PS username.
  • The ability to claim an unused PS username.
The winner will be able to choose two of the above options; the remaining option will be granted to the runner-up.

The $100 contribution will be distributed to the following organizations:
  • NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund
  • Black Lives Matter Global Network
  • The Bail Project
  • The National Police Accountability Project
The winner can determine how the funds are distributed (for example, they could request that all of the prize money go to one particular organization, or to split it between two of the four, etc.). If no preference is provided, all four charities will receive equal contributions.

The prize banner will appear under the user’s custom title and state that they are the winner of the Smogon Charity Bowl.

The custom PS avatar must meet all ordinary rules for custom avatars, and is subject to Zarel’s approval.

The PS name recolor will allow you to change your PS username color to the color of another account that you own.

Regarding claiming an unused PS username, only names that have not been used for four or more years are eligible to be claimed.


Even just $5 can go a long way toward supporting these organizations dedicated to ending police violence and systemic racism. However, if you are unable to give at this time, you will still be able to participate in this tournament. You can show your support here:

Thank you, and good luck to all.

Black lives matter.
