Discord

Players must join the NPA Discord - here we will be communicating tournament announcements. There may be penalties if a Judge tries to reach out to a player and we are unable to reach them.

Disconnections

If a Disconnection occurs, you are required to provide an error code. Failure to provide an error code may result in a game loss.

To provide an error code, do the following...

  1. TAKE A PICTURE OF THE ERROR CODE WITH YOUR PHONE. The error code will be a combination of letters and/or numbers.
  2. In your limitless match, click on CALL A JUDGE.

Team Sheets Discrepancies

It is the PLAYER'S RESPONSIBILITY to provide a full and accurate team sheet. Once the tournament has started, you will not be able to make any changes to your team sheet. Double check that your team sheet submission is correct

If YOU have a team sheet discrepancy before the beginning of a round

  1. CALL A JUDGE
  2. Fix the discrepancy by updating the Pokémon to match what is on your team sheet

In all future rounds of the tournament, you must notify your opponent of your team sheet discrepancy through the limitless chat of your team discrepancy (unless you fixed it). Simply deciding to not bring the discrepancy is not sufficient. Failure to do so qualifies as dishonesty and is grounds for disqualification from the tournament

If a discrepancy is found WHILE a game is being played

  1. CALL A JUDGE
  2. If possible take a screenshot or save the recording
  3. Upon verification of a team sheet error, the offending player will receive a game loss for the current game.
  4. The offending player has the option to either fix the discrepancy by updating their Pokémon to match their team sheet OR they can choose to no longer be able to bring that Pokémon to any further games in the round.
  5. In future rounds, if the offending player was not able to update their team to match their teamsheet (due to a Rental Code or lack of resources in game), they MUST notify their opponent of the error.
    • Continued use of Pokémon with a team sheet discrepancy without disclosing to their opponents will result in a disqualification. Expect a judge to spot check.
