Announcing June's Global Cup: The Innocent Cup!

Get ready for a new challenge beginning on June 1st! With it comes a new chance to prove your skill and increase your global and local player ranking! The Innocent Cup 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 Innocent Cup?

Each month the Silph Arena holds a month-long Cup - a 'themed' PvP tournament - that provides tens of thousands of trainers around the world a specially-designed competitive challenge and a chance to prove they're the very best. The Silph Arena is the world's largest global network for ranked Pokémon GOTM tournament play.

During the Cup (June 1st - June 30th), 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

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!

Innocent Cup Rules

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

  • Team of 6: Competitors will bring a team of 6 Pokemon (and register them before the tournament begins). All battle parties used must be comprised of these 6 Pokemon.
  • Great League: Matches are played in Great League: only Pokemon up to 1500 CP are permitted in the Cup.
  • Create an innocent team: Build a team of Dragon, Fairy, Flying, Psychic, and Water type Pokemon, with Arbok, Dragalge, Garbodor, and Swalot also available. Ice, Fire, Poison and Steel types aren't allowed, neither are Altaria, Galarian Articuno, Cresselia, Hawlucha, Lanturn, Mandibuzz, Mantine, Mew, Alolan Ninetales, Noctowl, Pelipper, Pidgeot, Trevenant, Galarian Zapdos, Galarian Moltres, and Galarian Articuno.
    • Shadow and Mega Pokémon are not eligible to use in the Innocent Cup.
  • Eligible List: What follows is the official list of exactly which species are permitted for use in the Innocent Cup:

    Preguntas Frecuentes

    Community Leader Questions:

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

    Simply log in to Silph.gg with an authorized Community Leader account and create a Cup tournament on your community management page. You will be given an RSVP url to share with your community and, on the day of the tournament, a join code to confirm your tournament's registrants. For a guide to setting up your tournament on Silph.gg, click here.

    How Do I Become Authorized to Host Tournaments on Silph.gg?

    All Silph League Discord community admins simply need to add themselves as 'Tournament Admins' via the Discord @SilphRoad bot:

    • On Discord, use the @SilphRoad add-tournament-admin @username#0000 command in your #silph-league channel. (You may need to log out of Silph.gg and back in again!)

    Telegram channel and group admins are automatically authorized on Silph.gg.

    Does the Innocent Cup have to be hosted on a specific date?

    Any date between June 1st and June 31st, 2023 is a valid date to hold your community's Innocent 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 Innocent Cup Cup for my community?

    The Arena team is working quickly to enable non-Discord/Telegram communities to host the Cup. Stay tuned for news on this front!

    Preguntas de los participantes:

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

    ¡Encuentra una Copa local organizada por una comunidad cerca de ti mediante el Mapa de Torneos y lee los detalles del evento en la página RSVP!

    How Important Are Monthly Cups for My Player Rank?

    Very. The vast majority of player rank in the Arena is derived from performance in the global, standardized Cups. (This is because Cups allow the Arena to observe the same controlled competitive scenarios for each player!)

    Why is the Innocent Cup played in Great League?

    Great League (max 1500cp) provides a diverse, new playing field with many options for creative, competitive teams. It also allows more casual players to join tournaments at meetups without being completely unable to compete with level 40 trainers who often sport the same level 40 Legendary Pokemon. Great League also marks immediately irrelevant much of the amassed arsenal of those who manipulate their GPS location ('spoof') to circumvent in-game mechanic limiters and acquire unnatural advantages.

    Where can I learn more about global player ranking?

    You can learn more about Global Player Rankings by reading our Guide to Player Rank.
