The format consists of five separate tournaments: the ADV Cup, the DPP Cup, the BW Cup, the ORAS Cup, and the SM Cup. Each tournament is single elimination, best of three. Depending on your performance in a Cup, you will be awarded points. The point system is the same as the one used in Smogon Classic. When all the Cups have been finished, the eight players with the most points will advance to the playoffs. Last year's format featured best-of-three for playoffs, but since there are five metagames now the format of this year's playoffs is TBD (to be decided).
