Tournament Ultimate League Championship I - Week 3


Banner by Jahkem
Approved by Monotype Forum Mods

Welcome to Ultimate League Championship (ULC)! This is a standard Sword & Shield Monotype 5v5 team tournament with a twist! Each type may only be used by a League ONCE per week. The types used during the current week may be used again in the following week.

For example, if League 1 used Fire in the current week, that means that type cannot be used for the remainder of that week for League 1.

  • This is a standard SS Monotype tournament.
  • All scheduling attempts MUST be done publicly on Smogon walls. No other proof of communication will count for act calls regarding scheduling attempts.
  • All matches are to be played on the main PS! Server or Smogtours, or else they will not be counted.
  • Each type may only be used by a League ONCE per week.
  • All games will be Best Of One.
  • Each round will last 1 week.
  • The tournament will be Double Elimination.
  • All replays must be posted.
Standard Rules and Clauses:
  • Baton Pass Clause: Baton pass is banned.
  • Same Type Clause: Pokémon in a team must share a type.
  • Sleep Clause Mod: Limit one foe put to sleep Species Clause: Limit one of each Pokémon.
  • OHKO Clause: OHKO moves are banned.
  • Moody Clause: Moody is banned.
  • Evasion Moves Clause: Evasion moves are banned.
  • Endless Battle Clause: Forcing endless battles is banned.
  • HP Percentage Mod: HP is shown in percentages.

Ghosting: Ghosting is defined as giving any piece of advice to someone playing a game. Any form of direct advice is considered ghosting. A player should be able to make their own decisions based on what they observe by themselves. Asking for suggestions or affirmation adds an unfair dynamic and greatly reduces the chances of making mistakes. Our tournaments are designed to be tests of individual skill, not the skill of one player with the support of others providing suggestions or preventing bad plays. Playing a game while in a voice call with someone else will always be treated as ghosting of the highest severity.

The punishment for ghosting is a Tournament Ban that can range anywhere from 3 months to 1 year, depending on a series of factors.

Note that all of this applies to the Smogtours lobby, as such no suggesting of moves or speculation on the sets of either players will be tolerated.


About playing on alts: It is entirely allowed to play on an alt other than your own main forum name, though if your opponent wishes to confirm your identity, you must log on to your main alt to show them you are who you claim to be. This is to prevent people from pretending to be who they're not.

Other servers are not sanctioned by the TD team and playing in them might result in your game not counting. Protect yourself from that by playing in Smogtours, where we also have the power to recreate games that end due to DC's.


On scouting opponents: Going through your opponents replays of tournament and ladder games is entirely allowed, as long as a game is public there is nothing preventing you from watching it. An exception to this is abusing powers granted to you by being staff on Smogon or PS! to gain access to information a normal user wouldn't have access to, which is strictly forbidden.

On leaking teams: Divulging private information about someone's planned team to their opponent is never allowed, and will be heavily sanctioned. Requesting that such information be divulged is also grounds for punishment. Keep your scouting to publicly available information and you'll be fine.

Timer Clause / Disconnections

On the Timer: The timer must stay on throughout the whole battle..

On Timeout losses: A player that loses by having all his time run out loses the game. This is only not the case if the player that received the timeout loss can be verified to have suffered a True Disconnection. Rematches are only allowed if there was a True Disconnection.

On True Disconnection: The TD team has a secret threshold of seconds that your timer must be at or above, from the moment you disconnect, for a timeout loss to be considered a True disconnection. If your game is determined to be a true disconnection if you played on Smogtours and contacted a TD before the room expired your game will be recreated up to the point the disconnect happened. It is the responsibility of the player that disconnected to get a TD into the room before it expires.
