Temporary Banner by Aaronboyer -- Hosted by Aaronboyer and DurzaOffTopic -- Inspiration Taken from The Smogon Classic

Welcome to the first ever ZU Classic. The first iteration of this tournament celebrates ZU's history throughout the years. Players will compete in separate tournaments for the ADV, DPP, BW, and ORAS generations, culminating in a finals where players will have to put their ZU Old Gens knowledge to the test to have a chance to win.

The format consists of four separate tournaments: The ADV Cup, The DPP Cup, The BW Cup, and The ORAS 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 Classic. When all the Cups have been finished, the eight players with the most points will advance to the playoffs. There they will battle in a best of three series until there is one undisputed ZU Classic champion.

Signups for each Cup will be posted a week after the signups for the previous Cup in ZU subforum. The hosts are allowed to play in the tournament that they are administering, as long as they elect someone else to create pairings. Here is the list of the Cups with the names of the hosts and the dates each will be posted:
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. Also keep in mind that this thread is not place to sign up for the ZU Classic. Players wanting to participate in the ZU Classic must sign up for each individual Cup posted every week. Have fun and good luck to everyone competing!

THIS IS NOT A SIGNUP THREAD!

So how many players make the finals and what format will the finals take place as?
“When all the Cups have been finished, the eight players with the most points will advance to the playoffs. There they will battle in a best of three series until there is one undisputed ZU Classic champion.”

Whoever you are facing in playoffs will decide which of the three metagames you will play first. Then the loser of that game will decide the next generation, and the loser of that game will decide the last generation if a game 3 needs to be played.
