The Forest Cup


May 1st - 31st, 2020

Announcing May's Global PvP Cup: The Forest Cup!

Get ready for a new challenge beginning on May 1st! With it comes a new chance to prove your skill and increase your global and local player ranking! The Forest Cup has been designed to test you against the perils of the woods. Here's what you need to know:

What Is the Forest Cup?

Cada mes, la Silph Arena celebra una Copa mensual, un torneo «temático» de JcJ, que provee a decenas de miles de entrenadores alrededor del mundo un reto competitivo especialmente diseñado y una oportunidad de probar ser los mejores. La Silph Arena es la más grande red global del mundo para el juego de torneos clasificatorios de Pokémon GOTM.

During the Cup (May 1st - May 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 may eventually even earn you an invitation to compete at the Continental or World Championships held at the end of the season!

All players are welcome to compete, whether it’s your first tournament or your hundredth!

Find a local tournament being held (remotely!) by groups near you on the Tournament Map and RSVP today!

Forest Cup Rules

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

  • Equipo de 6: Los competidores traerán un equipo de 6 Pokémon (y los registrarán antes de que comience el torneo). Todos los grupos de combate utilizados deben estar compuestos por estos 6 Pokémon.
  • Liga Super Ball:
    Los encuentros se juegan en la Liga Super Ball: solo se permiten Pokémon de hasta 1500 PC en la Copa.
  • Forest Types: Only Pokemon with Grass, Bug, Water, Fire, or Electric types are allowed, with a few exceptions:
    • Todos los pokemones deber pertenecer a las generaciones 2 (Johto), 3 (Hoenn), 4 (Sinnoh), or 5 (Unova).
    • Shadow Pokemon, Genesect, Tropius, and Raikou are not permitted in the Forest Cup due to availability constraints and, in Tropius and Raikou's cases, to feature wider variety of species.
  • Elegibles: A continuación la lista oficial de los pokemones permitidos en la copa:

Preguntas frecuentes

Preguntas de los líderes de comunidades:

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

Simplemente, inicia sesión en Silph.gg con una cuenta de líder de comunidad autorizada y cree un torneo de la Copa en tu página de administración de la comunidad. Recibirás un enlace de inscripción para compartir con su comunidad y, el día del torneo, un código de ingreso para confirmar a los participantes de su torneo. Para obtener una guía para configurar su torneo en Silph.gg, haga clic aquí.

¿Cómo me vuelvo autorizado para organizar Torneos en Silph.gg?

Todos los administradores de Discord de la comunidad de la Silph League simplemente necesitan agregarse a sí mismos como 'Administradores de Torneo' a través del bot @SilphRoad en Discord:

  • En Discord, usa el comando @SilphRoad add-tournament-admin @username#0000 en tu canal de #silph-league. (¡Puedes llegar a necesitar desloguearte de Silph.gg y loguearte de nuevo!)

Canales de Telegram y administradores de grupo están automáticamente en Silph.gg.

Can I host multiple Forest Cups in my community in May?

Yes. However, only one Forest 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 Forest Cup have to be hosted on a specific date?

Any date between May 1st and May 31st, 2020 is a valid date to hold your community's Forest 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 Forest Cup for my community?

El equipo de Arena está trabajando rápidamente para permitir que las comunidades que no son Discord / Telegram reciban la Copa. ¡Estén atentos a las noticias en este frente!

Preguntas de los participantes:

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

Find a local Cup being hosted (remotely!) by a nearby group and RSVP via the Tournament Map and read the event details on the event's RSVP page!

¿Que tan importantes son las Copas Mensuales para mi Ranking de Jugador?

Mucho. La mayor parte de la clasificación del jugador en la Arena es derivado del desempeño global, en las Copas estandarizadas. (¡Esto es porque las Copas permiten a la Arena observar los mismos escenarios controlados competitivos para cada jugador!)

Why is the Forest Cup played in Great League?

La Liga Super Ball (máx 1 500 PC) provee un nuevo y diverso campo de juego con muchas opciones para equipos creativos y competitivos. También, le permite a jugadores más ocasionales unirse al torneo en reuniones sin ser completamente incapaces de competir con entrenadores de nivel 40 que, a menudo, tienen los mismos Pokémon Legendarios de nivel 40. La Liga Super Ball también vuelve inmediatamente irrelevante mucho del arsenal reunido de aquellos que manipulan su locación GPS (spoofing) para eludir los limitadores mecánicos del juego y adquirir ventajas innaturales.

¿Dónde puedo aprender más sobre la clasificación de jugador global?
