The Rose Cup


February 1st - 29th

Announcing February's Global Cup: The Rose Cup!

A new challenge arrives February 1st! With it comes a new chance to prove your skill and increase your global and local player ranking! The Rose Cup - designed to showcase the dazzling strength of competitors and teams of Valentine's Day-themed Pokemon - follows the same basic rules as all Silph Arena global Cups, but this month comes with a special twist! Here's what you need to know:

What Is the Rose Cup?

Em cada mês a Silph Arena realiza uma taça mensal - um torneio em PVP "temático" - que fornece a milhares de treinadores à volta do mundo um desafio competitivo projectado especialmente e uma oportunidade de provar que são os melhores. A Silph Arena é a maior rede global do Mundo para torneios de Pokémon GO TM.

During the Cup (February 1st - February 29th), 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 Regionals and even 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 near you on the Tournament Map!

Rose Cup Rules

The Rose 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.
  • Permitted Colors: Only Pokemon whose main colors are Pink, Purple, Red, or Gray are eligible for use in the Rose Cup.
    • Main colors are based off of their classifications on Bulbapedia.
  • Shinies: A Pokémon's elligibility is based solely on its non-shiny form's color. For example: Sableye and its shiny are allowed, but shiny and non-shiny Gyarados are not.
  • Multiple Forms: If a Pokémon has multiple forms (Alolans, regional forms, etc.), each form that matches the allowed colors is eligible. (i.e. Alolan Marowak is allowed but Kanto Marowak is not)
  • Species Bans: Water-types (including dual types!), Mythical Pokemon, Legendary Pokemon, and Bastiodon are not allowed.
  • Eligible List: What follows is the official list of exactly which species are permitted for use in the Rose Cup:

Perguntas frequentes (FAQ)

Perguntas dos Lideres de Comunidade:

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

Basta fazer o login no Silph.gg com uma conta do Community Leader autorizada e criar um torneio da Taça através da página da comunidade que geres. Receberás um URL de RSVP para compartilhar com tua comunidade e, no dia do torneio, um código de entrada para confirmar junto dos inscritos no torneio. Para um guia sobre como configurar o vosso torneio no Silph.gg, clique aqui.

Como me tornar num cicerone autorizado a organizar os torneios no Silph.gg?

Todos os administradores da comunidade Silph League Discord precisam simplesmente se adicionar como "Administradores de Torneios" (Tournament Admins) através do bot Discord @SilphRoad:

  • No Discord, use o comando @SilphRoad add-tournament-admin @username#0000 no teu canal #silph-league. (Podes precisar sair do Silph.gg e voltar a entrar novamente!)

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

Can I host multiple Rose Cups in my community?

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

Any date between February 1st and February 29th, 2020 is a valid date to hold your community's Rose 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 Rose Cup for my community?

A equipa da Arena está a trabalhar rapidamente para permitir que as comunidades fora do Discord/Telegram possam organizar a Taça. Esteja atento por novidades sobre este assunto!

Perguntas dos participantes:

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

Encontre uma Taça local realizada por uma comunidade perto de ti através do Mapa de Torneios e leia os detalhes do evento na página de RSVP do evento!

Qual é a importância das taças mensais para meu ranking de jogador?

Muito grande. A grande maioria do ranking dos jogadores na Arena é derivado ao desempenho nas Taças padronizadas globais. (Isso porque as Taças permitem que a Arena compare os jogadores num cenário competitivo controlado!)

Why is the Rose Cup (and all non-Cup ranked tournaments) played in Great League?

Great League (máximo de CP: 1500) oferece um novo e diversificado campo de jogos com muitas opções para equipas criativas e competitivas. Ele também permite que jogadores mais casuais participem nos torneios de forma a garantir um justo equilíbrio com os treinadores de nível 40, que frequentemente possuem o mesmo nível de um Pokémon Lendário. Great League também se demarca imediatamente irrelevante grande parte do arsenal acumulado daqueles que manipulam a sua localização GPS ("spoof"/"voadores") para contornar os limites mecânicos no jogo e adquirir vantagens não naturais.

Onde posso encontrar mais informações sobre o ranking global dos jogadores?

Podes aprender mais sobre a classificação global de jogadores lendo o nosso Guia para classificação de jogadores.
