Tournament VGC Summer Seasonal - Round 4


is a Community Leader
VGC Leader
VGC 2023 Summer Seasonal


  • This is a standard VGC Regulation D tournament
  • This tournament will be Double Elimination. You will be removed from the tournament after you have lost twice.
  • Rounds will be Best of Three. You may not switch teams in between battles of the same set.
  • Matches must be played with Open Team Sheets
  • Matches are to be played on Pokemon Showdown! (main server only due to SmogTours timer rules)
  • To encourage the development of the metagame, and so that everyone is on an even playing field, replays are required for all matches. If neither player posts replays of the match, both players will suffer an automatic game loss. (If you were in losers' when you played, you are both out. If you were in winners', the winner is in losers' and the loser is out.) REPLAYS ARE MANDATORY REPLAYS ARE REQUIRED POST REPLAYS OR I WONT COUNT YOUR WIN.
  • Do not cheat. Cheating will result in a disqualification. Additional punishments may be applied as necessary. Cheating includes, but is not limited to:
    • Signing up with more than one account
    • Ghosting or being ghosted by another player (e.g. while playing a set, asking for advice about what team to bring or what plays to make)
    • Manipulating match outcomes (e.g. throwing a match in exchange for Smogon likes)
  • Do not harass or insult your opponents. I reserve the right to disqualify anyone breaking this rule. Additional punishments may be applied as necessary.
Standard Rules and Clauses
  • Team Lock Clause: Players must use the same team for all games of a given round. You can switch teams in between rounds, however.
  • Item Clause: Players cannot have two of the same item on the same team.
  • Species Clause: Players cannot have two Pokémon with the same Pokédex number on the same team.

  • The format used for challenges is VGC 2023 Regulation D
Your match result will not be considered valid if:
  • You change teams (if only one player changes teams, they will be given a game loss for each game they do not bring their game 1 team to)
  • You do not post replays
  • You play Regulation C. This is a Regulation D tournament!
What are we playing for?
This tournament will award points towards the 2023 VGC Circuit, which awards a prize banner and custom avatar to the winner of the entire circuit. If you win the seasonal itself, you will also get the "Seasonal Winner" role in the official Smogon VGC Discord!



You may find that your opponent will not respond to your attempts to schedule the game. If this happens, make sure these rules happen before calling activity:
  • It's at least halfway through the week. Don't be the person trying to call activity Tuesday morning, be reasonable! Try to wait until at least Friday to call one
  • If it's later in the week, that you've been without a response for 24 hours
  • You should be scheduling on each other's Smogon wall, but if you're scheduling using Smogon PMs, Discord DMs, or Twitter DMs, please either post the scheduling conversation or send it to a host privately.
  • Extensions may be granted in the case that both players are active in scheduling but cannot find a time to play in the week.

That’s kinda bs. They never responded to the extension. They only got online when it was the middle of the night for my time zone. I gave large windows of availability.
