CONTINENTALS META

Continentals competitors will battle in a new meta specifically designed to showcase their skills in the Pick 8, Ban 2 format. Teams should be composed of unique Pokémon typings. Up to two Pokémon on the battle team may have monotyping, so choose wisely!

PICK 8, BAN 2

The Continental Championship will also use the ‘pick 8, ban 2’ format. Each competitors will build a Battle Team of 8 Pokémon instead of the standard 6. Before battling each round, competitors will pick 2 of those Pokémon to ban for the bout.

Bans can be made and submitted on the silph.gg battle screen anytime between Battle Teams being revealed and the start of your battles. Neither battler will see the chosen bans until both sides are submitted.

CONTINENTALS RULES AND PROCEDURES

The 2022 Continental Championships are a special event unlike any other in the Arena. Therefore, there are a few differences to the Rules in this event that set it apart from normal tournaments.

  1. RECORD ALL BATTLES: All battles MUST be recorded in case of disputes. Judges will be unable to make a ruling in case of a technical malfunction if there are no recordings of the battle. If you are asked to provide a recording and are unable to, you may be issued a loss.
  2. COMPETITORS WILL NOT SHARE VIDEO OR DETAILS DURING THE TOURNAMENT: To protect player hidden information, competitors will not release video of any battles until the conclusion of the tournament. Competitors found to be streaming, on voice calls, screensharing, or otherwise communicating tournament information with others during the tournament will be immediately removed.
  3. REFEREE DECISIONS: Arena Referees will use their best judgement to make the decisions that are best for the situations at hand. Calls made by an official Referee in any dispute or situation are final.
  4. SPORTSMANSHIP: Continental Competitors will be held to a high standard of sportsmanship during this prestigious event. Name-calling, personal attacks, insults, and other unsportsmanlike behaviors can result in losses or removal from the tournament.

CONTINENTALS PERFORMANCE AND THE ROAD TO WORLDS

The Continentals Championship tournament will be ranked and competitor performance will impact invites to the World Championship. There are 32 seats for Worlds ready for the taking. The winner from each Continental tournament will secure one invite to Worlds. Then a varying number of Continental competitors and the top Global Leaderboard ranked battlers will be invited for the remaining 28 seats. Stay tuned for confirmation on who will qualify.
