Welcome, Smogon, to the fifth edition of UU Majors! This is the premier edition of an annual UU Circuit Tour where you can test your mettle against the top players in the community. Unlike most elimination tours, where your opponent is a matter of chance, UU Majors ensures that every participant plays a broad swath of the tier's playerbase as you fight your way to the top. Last year we saw CBU and Eternally fight their way to the top, what up and coming UU players will emerge this time around? It could be you, so don't miss your chance to sign up for the most electrifying UU Circuit tournament!

The tournament is divided into two stages - a round-robin qualifier and an elimination bracket. During Stage 1, players will be divided into pools, where they will play every other member of the pool in a best-of-one round robin. Pool leaders will be selected by the tournament hosts to ensure that each pool is fair.

At the end of Stage 1, each player will be ranked within his or her pool. The top two players of each pool will advance to Stage 2, where they will be entered into a single elimination bracket. The top 16 of Stage 2 will be awarded varying levels of UU Circuit Points, as well as a small number of points for anyone who makes it to Stage 2.


Tour Specific Rules

  • This is a standard SWSH UU tournament.
  • Stage 1 of this tournament will be a round robin series. Players will be placed in pools, and must play all other opponents in their pool.
  • Each pool will have a Pool Leader who will be handpicked by the tournament hosts.
  • Stage 1 matches will be best-of-one. You may switch teams between opponents.
  • Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown.
  • If any changes to the tier occur during Stage 1, they will not be implemented until Stage 2.
  • You must be active in scheduling with your opponents. The tournament hosts will be very strict about activity during Stage 1. Please use the VM wall so that your activity attempts are visible, and be as specific as possible when scheduling.
  • Stage 1 is a round robin format. This means that you are expected to play every opponent in your pool, even if you lose the first couple of games. If you are unwilling to commit to this format, do not sign up. You are also agreeing to playing games with potential substitutes.
  • Stage 2 is a single elimination bracket, where you will play best of three series with your matched opponent.
  • Saving replays is mandatory, in the case of a dispute you must be able to prove that you won your game.

DO NOT SIGN UP UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO COMMIT TO PLAYING ALL OF STAGE 1. EVEN IF YOU ARE ELIMINATED, YOU MUST COMPLETE ALL OF YOUR MATCHES. REFUSING TO PLAY ONCE YOU ARE OUT COULD RESULT IN A BAN FROM FUTURE UU CIRCUIT TOURS.
