It is time once more for arguably the most popular and unarguably the best tournament on Smogon: Smogon Tour. This will be our 32nd season, and the fourth one of the 8th generation! We will also feature a new time for our first tournament, which we hope will cater to european and asian communities alike.
The Smogon Tour is a series of Live Tournaments starting this time on the 18th of September. 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 as follow:
- 6 am GMT -4 on Saturdays
- 4 pm GMT -4 on Saturdays
- 2 pm GMT -4 on Sundays.
Take a look at this page for more information about how Smogon Tour works and how you can participate! 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. BKC has been so kind as to upload a video explaining how the tournament works and how YOU can join and play it! Considering they are a Tournament Director whom has also won this very tournament twice, I'm sure everyone can learn a thing or two watching it.
You can find the video below:
Will Lusa win back-to-back Smogon Tours? Will ORAS consists of more than just screens and webs? Is this finally Finchinator's tour? And will SS tours finally finish within 3 hours?
We shall find the answers to these questions and many others over the next 9 weeks! Best of luck to all!
