You must bring your own Nintendo Switch and a copy of Pokémon Scarlet or Violet to participate, which you are personally responsible for at all times. We do not have devices for you to use and are not liable if your equipment gets lost or damaged.

You will be provided with a teamsheet at the event. If you wish to print out your own copy, there is a link located in the Open Teamsheets section of the event page. If a portion of your sheet is deemed illegible, penalties will be handed out depending on the severity of the error(s). This includes but is not limited to: loss of held item/move, loss of Pokémon, game loss, and disqualification.

It is recommended that you bring some form of a portable power bank charger for your switch. There are some outlets available at the location, but this is a local event. Switch docks with chargers that you receive at regionals will not be supplied at the match tables. You don’t want to be having to worry about your switch battery running out in the late rounds of swiss or even worse top cut.

At the beginning of each round, you are allotted 10 minutes to check in and find your opponent. Failure to check in with your opponent after 10 minutes has passed will result in a game loss. After another 10 minutes have passed you will receive a second game loss and lose the round.

Rental teams ARE allowed. As long as you are able to fill out the Open Team Sheet (OTS), you can use that rental team.


This tournament will use open teamsheets. All sheets must have your six Pokémon with their held item, ability, tera type, and moveset submitted before the start of Swiss round 1. If you decide to print out your own team sheet pick page 2 the Open Team Sheet one. The stats are not necessary.
