The Catacomb Cup


July 1st - July 31st, 2020

Announcing July's Global Cup: The Catacomb Cup!

Get ready for a new challenge beginning on July 1st! With it comes a new chance to prove your skill and increase your global and local player ranking! The Catacomb Cup - inspired by the mysteries that lie beneath the surface - follows the same basic rules as all Silph Arena global cups, but this month it comes with a special twist! Here's what you need to know:

What Is The Catacomb Cup?

Cada mês, a Silph Arena organiza uma Copa mensal, um torneio "temático" de PvP, que provê a dezenas de milhares de treinadores ao redor do mundo um desafio competitivo especialmente projetado e uma chance de provar que são os melhores. A Silph Arena é a maior rede do mundo para torneios classificatórios de Pokémon GOTM.

During the Cup (July 1st - July 31st), local Silph League communities host and record a special tournament using the free Silph.gg tools. Wins and losses in this local tournament affect your player rank on local and global leaderboards, and can help you progress towards higher player tiers!

All players are welcome to compete, whether it’s your first tournament or your hundredth! Find a local tournament near you on the Tournament Map!

Reminder: only remote events are permitted through July!

Catacomb Cup Rules

The Catacomb Cup has a few special rules (designed to provide added challenge and fun) that differ from standard PvP combat in Pokemon GO:

  • Time de 6: Os competidores trarão um time de 6 Pokémon (e os registrarão antes do início do torneio). Todas as equipes de batalha utilizadas deverão ser compostas por esses 6 Pokémon.
  • Grande Liga: As partidas são disputadas na Grande Liga: apenas Pokémon com até 1500 PC são permitidos na Copa.
  • Catacomb Types: Only Pokémon with Dark, Grass, Ice, Rock, and Bug types (including dual types) are allowed, with a few exceptions:
    • Legendaries, Mythicals, Shadows, Regionals, and Steel types are not permitted.
    • Scrafty, Dewgong, Alolan Ninetails, Crustle and Obstagoon are not allowed for use in the Catacomb Cup.
  • Eligible List: What follows is the official list of exactly which species are permitted for use in the Catacomb Cup:

Dúvidas Frequentes

Dúvidas dos Líderes da Comunidade:

How Do I Host a Catacomb Cup Tournament in My Community?

É simples, faça log-in em Silph.gg com uma conta autorizada de Líder de Comunidade e crie um torneio da Copa na sua página de gerenciamento de comunidade. Você receberá uma url de pré-cadastro para compartilhar com a sua comunidade, e no dia do torneio um Código de Acesso para confirmar os participantes do torneio. Para um guia de como configurar o seu torneio na Silph.gg, clique aqui.

Como eu consigo autorização para organizar torneios no Silph.gg?

Todos os administradores das comunidades Silph League Discord precisam simplesmente se adicionar como 'Administradores de Torneios' através do bot do Discord @SilphRoad:

  • No Discord, use o comando @SilphRoad add-tournament-admin @username#0000 no seu canal #silph-league. (Talvez você precise sair do Silph.gg e entrar novamente!)

Os administradores dos canais e grupos de Telegram estão automaticamente autorizados no Silph.gg.

Can I host multiple Catacomb Cups in my community in July?

Yes. However, only one Catacomb Cup will have significant impact in the participant’s Global Ranking. Participants can choose at the start of the Cup if they want that specific Cup to be weighted more heavily than the others.

Does The Catacomb Cup have to be hosted on a specific date?

Any date between July 1st and July 31st, 2020 is a valid date to hold your community's Catacomb Cup. The tournament registration page will not allow registering your Cup for an invalid date or time - so as long as you are able to create your tournament on Silph.gg, you will know it is set for a valid date.

I am a community leader of a Facebook Group (or other platform like Slack, Line, etc). How do I host The Catacomb Cup for my community?

A equipe da Arena está trabalhando rapidamente para permitir que as comunidades fora do Discord/Telegram possam organizar a Copa. Mais informações em breve!

Dúvidas dos Participantes:

How Do I Join a Catacomb Cup Tournament in My Community?

Find a local Cup being hosted by a community near you via the Tournament Map and read the event details on the event's RSVP page!

Qual é a Importância das Copas Mensais para Minha Classificação de Jogador?

Enorme. A maior parte da classificação do jogador na Arena é derivada do desempenho nas Copas padronizadas globais. (Isso acontece porque as Copas permitem que a Arena observe os mesmos cenários competitivos controlados para cada jogador!)

Why is The Catacomb Cup played in Great League?

A Grande Liga (PC máximo de 1500) oferece um novo e diversificado campo de jogos, com muitas opções de equipes criativas e competitivas. Ela também permite que jogadores mais casuais participem nos torneios de forma a garantir um equilíbrio justo com os treinadores de nível 40, que frequentemente possuem Pokémon lendários também no nível 40. A Grande Liga também se destaca imediatamente por tornar irrelevante grande parte do arsenal acumulado daqueles que manipulam sua localização GPS ('Spoof/Fly/'FakeGPS').

Onde posso encontrar mais informações sobre a classificação global dos jogadores?

Você pode aprender mais sobre a Classificação Geral dos Jogadores lendo o Guia à Classificação Geral dos Jogadores.
