:sv/flutter-mane: VGC Swiss Tour - hosted by ToastNoButter and Eeveon7 :sv/urshifu-rapid-strike:

If you are looking to be subbed in, post "in" in this thread and an opponent will be assigned to you.


  • This is a standard VGC Regulation D tournament
  • This tournament will be Swiss, followed by Single Elimination in Top Cut. You will be removed from the tournament after losing 4 times, or a record of x-4. Records of 7-2 or better will qualify to the single elimination top cut stage.
  • Rounds will be Best of Three. You may not switch teams in between battles of the same set, but may switch teams every week. PLEASE OPEN ALL 3 GAMES AT THE SAME TIME TO PREVENT TEAM SWITCHING.
  • 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, a coinflip will occur. 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/weeks, 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.
    • VGC 2023 Regulation D is a non-restricted format. This means players can use all Pokemon available in Scarlet/Violet besides the following:
      • Mewtwo, Ho-Oh, Lugia, Groudon, Kyogre, Rayquaza, Palkia, Dialga, Giratina, Zekrom, Reshiram, Kyurem, Xerneas, Yveltal, Zygarde, Cosmog, Cosmoem, Lunala, Solgaleo, Necrozma, Zacian, Zamazenta, Eternatus, Calyrex, Koraidon, Miraidon
      • Other Pokemon banned include Walking Wake and Iron Leaves
    • Mythical Pokemon are banned. These include:
      • Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Victini, Keldeo, Genesect, Diancie, Volcanion, Zeraora, Magearna, and Zarude
    • Matches will be played at level 50.
    • 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 a different VGC format. This is a Regulation D tournament!
  • What are we playing for?
    This tournament will award Tournament 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 "Hall of Fame" role in the official Smogon VGC Discord!

^ watch this if you don't know how
Message your opponent on their Smogon wall (linked in pairings) publically and work out a time between the two. Please be clear and timely with your scheduling so there is no confusion! Use concrete dates and times (with timezones) for clarity!
Don't say Friday at 5pm, say August 25th 17:00 GMT-4. [This is an example]


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 act
  • 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 WILL NOT be granted.
