Arena Update

Dec 21, 2022: Silph Arena Season 2023 Wave 1

Wave 1
January – February 2023

The first Wave of the 2023 Silph Arena Season spans January and February. You may play a maximum of 40 ranked rounds across these two months. Any play in tournaments that exceeds a competitor’s first 40 rounds (based on tournament start date) will not impact rank, and any unplayed rounds will not carry over into Wave 2. Remember to keep track of your rounds. For more information on this, visit our Guide to Rank.

Formats available to play are:

  • Ember Cup – Available throughout January as the Monthly Cup.
  • Naiad Cup – Available throughout February as the Monthly Cup.
  • Open Great League – Always Available
  • Weather Cup – Available from January 16th to January 29th as a featured GO Battle League themed Cup.
  • Hoenn Cup – Available from February 17th to February 28th as a featured GO Battle League themed Cup.

In order to be eligible for our Continentals and/or World Championships at the end of the season, you must have at least one Silph Arena Cup Trophy from the 2023 Season on your Traveler’s Card. But if you want to collect all of the Season Trophies you will need to play in a ranked Arena Cup each month!

ARE MONTHLY CUPS IMPORTANT FOR MY PLAYER RANK?

Silph’s Monthly Cups, Open Great League, and the GO Battle League themed cups all count the same towards your rank if you play them within your allotted 40 ranked games per Wave. However, you will not be able to qualify for our Continental and World Championships without playing in at least one ranked Silph Arena Monthly Cup.
