Welcome to Smogon VGC’s Summer Seasonal! This tournament will award 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 "Seasonal Winner" role in the official Smogon VGC Discord! This year’s host is Spurrific.
- This tournament will be played in VGC 2023 Regulation D (All Non-Restricted and Non-Mythical Pokémon, including Pokémon transferred through Pokémon Home, are allowed, except Walking Wake and Iron Leaves)
- This tournament will be Double Elimination
- Every match will be Best of Three.
- We suggest to play your matches on Pokémon Showdown!, but playing on cartridge is allowed as long as both players agree and replays are provided.
- 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 sign up with more than one account, as it is not only considered cheating but also because it goes against Smogon’s rules to create more than one account.
- Do not cheat. Cheating will result in a disqualification and additional punishments may be applied if deemed necessary.
Cheating includes, but is not limited to:
◦ Ghosting or being ghosted by another player
◦ Forcing deadgames and activity wins
Standard VGC Rules and Clauses
- Team Lock Clause: Players must use the same team for all battles 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.
- Matches will be played at level 50.
