The Twilight Cup
Feb 1st - 28th
Announcing February's Global Cup: The Twilight Cup!
The Silph Arena's second global Cup begins on February 1st! With it comes a new chance to prove your skill and increase your global and local player ranking! The Twilight Cup - inspired by the Pokémon that might love the twilight hours - has a few notable changes from January's Boulder Cup! Here's what you need to know:
What Is the Twilight 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 Pokemon GOTM tournament play.
During the Cup (February 1st - 28th), 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 World Championships at 2019 GO Fest & Safari Zone!
The Twilight Cup Rules
The Twilight Cup has a few special rules (designed to provide added challenge and fun) that differ from standard PvP combat in Pokemon GO, and a few notable additions based on learnings from our prior Cup:
- 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.
- Matches are played in Great League: only Pokemon under 1500 CP are permitted in the Cup.
- Only Pokemon with at least one of the following types are permitted: Dark, Fairy, Poison, or Ghost.
- Only one of each Pokemon species is permitted on your team of 6. (No species duplicates!)
- As Regras da Arena serão seguidas para todos os outros casos não explicados.
Take a moment to review the Arena Rules linked above - there are a few new clarifications in regards to technical difficulties and an optional coin toss to determine which opponent sends battle invites, due to a suspected ordering advantage.
Registration for the February Cup will become available to local community leaders on January 25th - but Twilight Cups must be scheduled between February 1st and February 28th. Find a Silph League community near you via the Silph League community map here and ask if they will be participating in the Twilight Cup!
Dúvidas do Líder da Comunidade:
How Do I Host a Twilight 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.
Como eu consigo a autorização para 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
- No Discord, use o comando
@SilphRoad add-tournament-admin @username#0000no teu 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 Twilight Cups in my community in February?
Sim, porém, apenas a primeira Copa em que cada participante participar contará para a classificação individual de cada jogador.
Does the Twilight Cup have to be hosted on a specific date?
Any date between February 1 and February 28, 2019 is a valid date to hold your community's Twilight 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 Twilight Cup for my community?
A equipe da Arena está a trabalhar rapidamente para permitir que as comunidades fora do Discord/Telegram possam organizar a Copa. Mais informações em breve!

Qual é a importância das copas mensais para meu ranking de jogador?
Enorme. A grande maioria do ranking de jogador na Arena é derivado do desempenho das Copas padronizadas globais. (Isso acontece porque as Copas permitem que a Arena compare os jogadores num cenário competitivo controlado!)
Why is the Twilight Cup (and all non-Cup ranked tournaments) played in Great League?
A Liga Grande (CP 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 o mesmo nível de um Pokémon Lendário. 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 o ranking global dos jogadores?
Mais recursos estarão disponíveis em breve - mas, enquanto isso, dê uma lida na seguinte página:
