INIt is time once more for arguably the most popular and inarguably the best tournament on Smogon: Smogon Tour. This will be the 28th season, and the last of the 7th generation!
The Smogon Tour is a series of Live Tournaments starting this time on the 13th of September. The format is the same as usual, consisting of the three most recent OU generations (SM OU, ORAS OU and BW2 OU, in this very order). The Live part of the tournaments will last 9 weeks where everyone will earn a certain amount of points according to their weekly performances. Once this phase is over, we'll move to Playoffs with the 16 best players of the tournament. The winner of the Smogon Tour will obtain the glorious Pink Trophy, and a custom avatar on Pokémon Showdown!, courtesy of Zarel.
As usual, all the tournaments will take place on the smogtours server, unless stated otherwise. The times at which they will start are unchanged and are as follow:
Remember that you can only join two tours per week. You cannot make a new account to circumvent the rule either. Also, you are not allowed to ask for wins, offer wins, throw games or interfere in other people's battles (ghosting them or their opponent). Nor are you allowed to insult your opponent, spectators and especially not the host. If you do any of the things mentioned in this paragraph, be prepared to get infracted and potentially banned from our Tournaments. We will take retroactive actions if needed.
- 6 pm EDT on Fridays.
- 4 pm EDT on Saturdays.
- 2 pm EDT on Sundays.
Take a look at this page for more information about how Smogon Tour works and how you can participate (stick to the Rules section, the Schedule and Standings one are not up to date).
Don't forget to join our discord server to make sure you never miss a tour, and also to have any of your questions regarding this tournament and others answered.
Will Finch finally get there in the last season before BW is replaced? Will the new hosts actually manage to read the dang guide? How many 300 stall battles will i have forcibly end?
Find the answers to these questions and many others over the next 9 weeks.
Good luck to all!
