The Discord

Why join the [Discord] ( It’s where all the magic happens! Also for the following:

  • team sheet corrections
  • getting the judge’s (me) attention
  • notifications for when the rounds go live
  • join a growing community of VGC players

Discrepancies & Disconnects

If your team sheet has incorrect information that’s ok! However, make sure to post it in the discord and let your opponent know before you start battling. If you don’t you’ll end up forfeiting the first match and you will still be obligated to inform your opponent.

In the event of a disconnect on turn one communicate with your opponent and restart the match with the same leads, etc. If it occurs midway through the game take a quick video with your phone or switch and request a judge. Whoever had the disconnect will take the loss. If you can’t connect to your opponent you have 2 options:

  1. Request a tie
  2. Play on showdown if your opponent consents
Make sure to join the Discord!

I’m looking forward to an extremely epic time with you! ;)
