Welcome to the Fourth Smogon Classic. This tournament celebrates Smogon's and Pokemon's history throughout the years. Players will compete in separate tournaments for the RBY, GSC, ADV, DPP, and BW generations, culminating in a finals where players must play all generations with this amazing trophy on the line:
The format is the same as previous editions and consists of five separate tournaments: The BW Cup, The DPP Cup, The ADV Cup, The GSC Cup, and The RBY Cup. Each tournament is single elimination, best of three. Depending on your performance in a Cup, you will be awarded points. The point system is the same as the one used in Smogon Tour (see this for further explanation). When all the Cups have been finished, the sixteen players with the most points will advance to the play-offs. There they will battle in a best of five series until there is one undisputed Smogon Classic champion.
Signups for each Cup will be posted a week after the signups for the previous Cup. The hosts are allowed to play in the tournament that they are administering, as long as they elect someone else trustworthy to create pairings. Here is the list of the five Cups with the names of the hosts and the dates each signup thread will be posted:
- The BW Cup - Hosted by Finchinator - March 26th
- The DPP Cup - Hosted by Dream - April 2nd
- The ADV Cup - Hosted by reyscarface - April 2nd
- The GSC Cup - Hosted by Jimmy Turtwig - April 9th
- The RBY Cup - Hosted by Golden Gyarados - April 9th
If there are any questions, post in this thread and I will answer them as well as I can. Do not use this thread as a venue to complain about the format.
Tiering changes to the metagames in this tournament might not immediately affect this tournament the round after they happen.
Have fun and good luck to everyone competing!
cb aaron judge, perry, and Team Pokepals will be taking care of the spreadsheet
