Frequently Asked Questions:

1. I'm a leader of my local Discord or Telegram group. How do I make our local PvP tournaments accredited?

If you're a member of the Silph League, all you need to do is log in to Silph.gg with your Silph Road account and create your tournament through the free tournament software. It will help you create, run, and conclude local tournaments simply and easily!

2. Where can I see my trophy case, historical stats, and Player Tier?

Starting January 6th, these will be displayed on your sil.ph/username player profile (your Silph Travelers Card!) once you have competed in a Silph Arena Tournament.

3. How often can I compete in Silph Arena tournaments to help improve my rank and Player Tier?

The vast majority of your player rank will be determined by your performance in the monthly, global Cups - but non-Cup tournaments played under Arena Rules can help increase player rank to a small degree up to 10 times per month. For more detailed information about player rank, read the Guide to Player Rank.

4. Is the Arena launched? When can we host and play in tournaments?

Yes! Though still in beta, the Arena is available to all League admins to host tournaments in their communities. Season 1 opened for ranked play on January 6th, 2019.

5. Is there a minimum or maximum number of tournament participants?

Arena tournaments require at least 8 participants, and currently have NO maximum participant count.

6. I have questions about Pokemon GO's PvP mechanics...

The Silph Road has compiled a mechanic summary here: Pokemon PvP Mechanics (Reddit)

7. I'm a community leader, but we don't use Telegram or Discord. Can we still host authorized Arena tournaments?

At present, you will have to create a Discord or Telegram for yourself and your tournament staff so you can be authorized. Your tournament participants do not need to join the Discord/Telegram - it only serves to verify your own status as a Community Leader to the Silph Road bot. Then you can use Silph.gg to run any actual tournaments!
