Announcing: The Justicar Cup!

Get ready for a new challenge beginning on March 6th! With it comes a new chance to prove your skill and increase your global and local player ranking! The Justicar Cup follows the same basic rules as all Silph Arena global cups, but this month it comes with a special twist! Here's what you need to know:

What Is The Justicar Cup?

Each month the Silph Arena holds a month-long Cup - a 'themed' PvP tournament - that provides tens of thousands of trainers around the world a specially-designed competitive challenge and a chance to prove they're the very best. The Silph Arena is the world's largest global network for ranked Pokémon GOTM tournament play.

During the Cup (March 6th - March 20th), local Silph League communities host and record a special tournament using the free Silph.gg tools. Wins and losses in this local tournament affect your player rank on local and global leaderboards

All players are welcome to compete, whether it's your first tournament or your hundredth! Find a local tournament near you on the Tournament Map!

Justicar Cup Rules

The Justicar Cup has a few special rules (designed to provide added challenge and fun) that differ from standard PvP combat in Pokemon GO:

  • Team of 6: Competitors will bring a team of 6 Pokemon (and register them before the tournament begins). All battle parties used must be comprised of these 6 Pokemon.
  • Ultra League: Matches are played in Ultra League: only Pokemon up to 2500 CP are permitted in the Cup.
  • Ignite your team team: Alolan Muk, Hisuian Qwilfish, Honchkrow, Machamp, Malamar, Poliwrath, Primeape, and Sirfetch’d, and Pokémon with Fire, Electric, Grass and Ground typings (including dual types) are allowed with a few exceptions
    • Dragon-Types, Steel-Types, Rock-Types, Water/Ground Dual Types, Abomasnow, Diggersby, Dugtrio, Lanturn, Nidoqueen, Ninetales, Pachirisu, Salazzle, Stunfisk, and Whimsicott, and Shadow Pokémon are not eligible to use in the Justicar Cup.
    • Mega Pokémon are not eligible to use in the Justicar Cup.
  • Eligible List: What follows is the official list of exactly which species are permitted for use in the Justicar Cup:

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Community Leader Questions:

    How Do I Host a Justicar Cup Tournament in My Community?

    Simply log in to Silph.gg with an authorized Community Leader account and create a Cup tournament on your community management page. You will be given an RSVP url to share with your community and, on the day of the tournament, a join code to confirm your tournament's registrants. For a guide to setting up your tournament on Silph.gg, click here.

    How Do I Become Authorized to Host Tournaments on Silph.gg?

    All Silph League Discord community admins simply need to add themselves as 'Tournament Admins' via the Discord @SilphRoad bot:

    • On Discord, use the @SilphRoad add-tournament-admin @username#0000 command in your #silph-league channel. (You may need to log out of Silph.gg and back in again!)

    Telegram channel and group admins are automatically authorized on Silph.gg.

    Does the Justicar Cup have to be hosted on a specific date?

    Any date between March 6st and March 20th, 2023 is a valid date to hold your community's Justicar Cup. The tournament registration page will not allow registering your Cup for an invalid date or time - so as long as you are able to create your tournament on Silph.gg, you will know it is set for a valid date.

    I am a community leader of a Facebook Group (or other platform like Slack, Line, etc). How do I host the Justicar Cup Cup for my community?

    The Arena team is working quickly to enable non-Discord/Telegram communities to host the Cup. Stay tuned for news on this front!

    Participant Questions:

    How Do I Join a Justicar Cup Tournament in My Community?

    Find a local Cup being hosted by a community near you via the Tournament Map and read the event details on the event's RSVP page!

    How Important Are Monthly Cups for My Player Rank?

    Very. The vast majority of player rank in the Arena is derived from performance in the global, standardized Cups. (This is because Cups allow the Arena to observe the same controlled competitive scenarios for each player!)

    Where can I learn more about global player ranking?

    You can learn more about Global Player Rankings by reading our Guide to Player Rank.
