Showdown Rules

These rules only matter for tournaments played on showdown

Before playing any games with your opponent.

  1. First Start 3 matches with them.
  2. Accept open team sheets on each.

This is done to prevent people from changing their teams between games in a set.


Players must join the thatguyinabeanie Discord Server - 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.


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 AN 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 Errors

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 a discrepancy is found WHILE a game is being played

  4. The offending player has the option to either fix the discrepancy by updating their Pokémon to match their team sheet
  5. If the player is unable to update their in-game Pokémon to match their submitted team sheet, they will no longer be able to bring that Pokémon to any further games in any of their rounds.
