Welcome to the VGC PL III Admin Thread! Here I will be posting useful resources, regulations, and more!

Here are some Admin stuff pertaining to the tour!
There will be 8 teams in VGC PL III. Teams will field 8 starters and a minimum of 3 substitutes. There is no maximum team size.
We will draft using an auction of 120K credits, with each bid (for a player) starting at 3k.
The regular season will follow an 8v8 format, followed by a 7v7 playoffs format. (x4 SV VGC 2023 Regulation C)
Format Overview is as follows:
  • x5 SV VGC 2023 Regulation C​
  • x1 SwSh VGC 2022​
  • x1 SwSh Rotation with Series 5 and Series 7​
  • x1 SM Rotation with VGC 2017, VGC 2018, and VGC 2019​

If a player misses their scheduled time, after contacting the opposing team, the opponent can claim a win for Game 1 after 15 minutes, and Game 2 after 30 minutes assuming a substitute is not implemented.
  • You may substitute a player if a player misses their match, but they must not be fielded in the current week in another slot​
Ghosting, Cheating, or aiding teammates or other players mid-match is strictly forbidden, and will be punished with a set loss and ban from Smogon VGC tournaments. (Could be temporary or permanent)
Just use common sense. Be sportsmanlike, and don't be a nuisance. If it seems questionable, don't do it (or ask me/Aldrich). We're all here to have fun, don't try to ruin that

RE: calvonix vs valentinevgc week 1

Due to the PS Outage and both parties unable to find time rescheduling and both managers agreeing to deadgame, the match will be dead gamed.

RE: Playoffs Format
Following the early release of Regulation D in Week 5 , a vote was conducted among the managers of the teams that have qualified for / can qualify for playoffs as to if the format should be changed to all Regulation D slots , a split 3 Regulation C / 2 Regulation D slot or keeping the format throughout the vote. Following the results of the vote, which showed overwhelming favor towards changing the current format, the format for playoffs will be as follows:
  • x2 SV VGC 2023 Regulation D
  • x3 SV VGC 2023 Regulation C
  • x1 SwSh VGC 2022
  • x1 SwSh Rotation with Series 5 and Series 7
  • x1 SM Rotation with VGC 2017, VGC 2018, and VGC 2019

* The top seed will be able to choose the legacy format of their choice first
