It is time once more for arguably the most popular and unarguably the best tournament on Smogon: Smogon Tour. This will be the 29th season, and the first of the 8th generation!
The Smogon Tour is a series of Live Tournaments starting this time on the 13th of March. The format is the same as usual, consisting of the three most recent OU generations (SS OU, SM OU and ORAS 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
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:
- 6 pm GMT -4 on Fridays
- 4 pm GMT -4 on Saturdays.
- 2 pm GMT -4 on Sundays.
