:ss/urshifu: Smogon Spikemuth Cup - hosted by Borghi and zee :ss/regidrago:
  • This is a Doubles Spikemuth tournament
  • Spikemuth is a format where you play without the use of Restricted Pokemon and without the use of Dynamax or Gigantamax
  • This tournament will be Swiss with an automatic drop once you go X-3
  • Due to time, we will be CUTTING TO A TOP 8. Players who reach 4 or 5 wins but do not Top Cut will still receive points!
  • Rounds will be Best of Three. You may not switch teams in between battles of the same set.
  • 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.)
  • 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.
  • Spikemuth is based on VGC rules. This means players can use none of the following Pokemon (in any form) on their teams:
    • Mewtwo, Ho-Oh, Lugia, Groudon, Kyogre, Rayquaza, Palkia, Dialga, Giratina, Zekrom, Reshiram, Kyurem, Xerneas, Yveltal, Zygarde, Cosmog, Cosmoem, Lunala, Solgaleo, Necrozma, Zacian, Zamazenta, Calyrex and Eternatus
  • 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.
