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 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!

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