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?

Ogni mese, per tutto il mese, la Silph Arena tiene una Coppa - un torneo PvP 'a tema' - che porta a decine di migliaia di allenatori da tutto il mondo una sfida competitiva pensata ad-hoc, e un'opportunità di dimostrare chi è il migliore. La Silph Arena è la più grande rete mondiale per le partite di torneo di Pokémon GO TM.

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:

  • Una squadra da 6:
    I partecipanti devono avere una squadra di 6 Pokémon (e registrarla prima dell'inizio del torneo). Tutte le squadre lotta devono usare soltanto questi sei Pokémon.
  • Lega Mega:
    Le lotte si giocano in Lega Mega: sono dunque ammessi solo Pokémon con un massimo di 1500 PL.
  • Forest Types: Only Pokemon with Grass, Bug, Water, Fire, or Electric types are allowed, with a few exceptions:
    • All Pokemon must originate in Generations 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.
  • Eligible List: What follows is the official list of exactly which species are permitted for use in the Forest Cup:

FAQ - Domande Frequenti

Domande dai Leader di Community

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

Ti basterà accedere a Silph.gg con un account autorizzato da Leader di Community, e creare un torneo di Coppa nella pagina di gestione della community. Otterrai così un url RSVP da condividere con la community, ed il giorno del torneo un codice di entrata per confermare la presenza dei partecipanti. Trovi qui una guida su come preparare il torneo su Silph.gg.

Come posso richiedere l'autorizzazione per ospitare tornei su Silph.gg?

Agli amministratori di community Silph League Discord è sufficiente aggiungersi tra gli 'Amministratori di Torneo' tramite il bot Discord @SilphRoad:

  • Su Discord, usa il comando @SilphRoad add-tournament-admin @username#0000 nel tuo canale #silph-league. (Potrebbe essere necessario uscire da Silph.gg ed effettuare un nuovo login!)

Gli admin di gruppi e i partecipanti al canale Telegram sono automaticamente autorizzati.

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?

Il team Arena si sta dando da fare perché le community esterne a Discord/Telegram possano ospitare le Coppe. Resta sintonizzato per novità al riguardo!

Domande dei partecipanti:

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!

Quanto contano le Coppe mensili per il mio rango giocatore?

Molto. Un'enorme fetta del rango giocatore nell'Arena è determinata dalle sue performance nelle Coppe standard globali. (Perché in questo modo l'Arena può controllare lo stesso scenario competitivo per ciascun giocatore!)

Why is the Forest Cup played in Great League?

La Lega Mega (massimo 1500 PL) mette a disposizione un campo di gioco variegato con molte opzioni per dei creativi team competitivi. Inoltre, permette la partecipazione di un bacino più ampio di giocatori, rendendo possibile anche una giusta competizione con dei giocatori di livello 40 che hanno a disposizione gli stessi Pokémon Leggendari di livello 40. La Lega Mega, poi, rende anche inservibile l'arsenale di coloro che dovessero falsificare la propria posizione GPS ("i fly") allo scopo di aggirare i limiti delle meccaniche di gioco ed ottenere vantaggi sleali.

Dove posso sapere di più sul posizionamento globale?

Puoi leggere di più sull'argomento nella Guida al Posizionamento Giocatore.
