Serebii's Pokémon Masterclass #8

Tournament hosted by BGP_


Welcome one and all to Serebii's 8th Pokémon Masterclass Tournament! This tournament ideally will pit the best of the best against each other to determine who rules the roost. Sixteen people will be competing for the crown but there can only be one winner!

How will this go down?

After we receive 16 signups, the first round will commence. Each round will last a week but the first round will be divided into a four and three day period. If an opponent is inactive for the four days after Round One begins, they will be subbed out and the round will continue as normal for the remaining three days.

Tournament Rules

  • Matches will take place on Pokemon Showdown.
  • This tournament will be played with the 7th generation SM OU tier. Should a ban take place mid-round, the round will finish with the rules it started with, and the following will use the updated ban list.
  • All matches will be conducted in Singles format.
  • All matches will use standard battle clauses.
  • When filling out the application, you must list ONE registered PS name that you must use for the ENTIRE tournament.
  • Battles will be Best of 3. Basically, the first player to defeat their opponent twice advances.

This year, the winner will receive a special prize, as part of the official tournaments and Guardian Circuit. This prize is the Pokémon Masterclass Champion badge, as seen below.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: My opponent is inactive? What do I do to avoid disqualification?
A: If you have PM'd your opponent and they do not respond, mark your activity by PMing/VMing me and/or posting on this thread so we can see you are the more active of the two. It is advised that you communicate through VM's so your activity can be measured unless you are unable.​
Q: What happened to betting?
A: I don't really have time to manage it as well this year. Apologies. Maybe next year.​
Q: How does this work with the Guardian Circuit?
A: Refer to the Guardian Circuit thread for more information.​
Q: I'm going to be away for the first few days of Round One. What can I do to avoid being subbed out?
A: Uh, then don't sign up. =/​
