Welcome to the first edition of ZU Majors! In this tournament, participants will start off in a pool with other players, and those with the best records within those pools will advance to the second stage. Pools will be randomised, with the exception of pool leaders. Each pool will have a leader, who is a credible player, and these leaders will be determined by tour hosts to ensure each pool is fair. After the first stage, the tournament will shift to a traditional single elimination tournament with the advancing players from each pool. The top 32* players of this tournament will earn Circuit Points according to the payout structure listed here. For an example of how this tour is run, see the UU version.


Tour Specific Rules
  • This is a standard SS ZU tournament.
  • The format for Stage 1 is as follows:
    • 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.
    • Because Stage 1 is a round robin format, this means 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 play games with potential substitutes.
    • Each pool will have a pool leader who will be determined by current Circuit standings.
    • Stage 1 matches will be best-of-one. You may switch teams between opponents.
    • Due to the number of matches, Stage 1 will last for 2 weeks.
  • The format for Stage 2 is as follows:
    • The format will be best-of-three, single elimination.
    • Changing teams between matches is allowed.
    • Rounds will last the standard 1 week.
  • All 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.
  • Replays must be saved for all matches to prevent disputes.
  • Activity calls will be made by me, potentially with neutral assistance from a TD Coin flips will be done publicly on PS!
    • As such, it is imperative to schedule publicly on your opponents' walls. Please do not schedule via PMs or Smogon convos
  • You are expected to know and follow all general tournament rules.
With 65 signups, ZU Majors will have 16 groups with four players each (64 places). The top two players advance from each pool into the second stage (32 players for playoffs). As per Smogon tournament rules, the first 62.5% (41) signups are guaranteed and the remaining 24 signups are randomized. The one remaining players is a substitute.
