    Hello everyone - Pokemon Online World Cup (POWC) is coming up this month! This year it will be hosted by @HSOWA and myself, @Edna, with the assistance of @fsk. In order to have a successful tournament, captains are of course needed.

    Post here if you want to be a captain in the POWC. Bear in mind that it's kind of an investment and dropping out mid-tour would be quite bad and punishable. But that's why assistant captains can be useful and so you can also be an assistant captain. However, assistant captains are picked by the captains themselves in the end and so don’t need to post a separate signup post, if the head captain has put his assistant captain in his or her post. The captain does not need to know his assistant before signing up and can leave the assistant spot blank in his application. However, in the end, an assistant captain must be picked and this can be done by a new post of either the captain or the assistant captain.

    Anyone may sign up, but people with more experience or exposure will likely be getting priority. However, the overall quality of the application and the user signing up is the main factor into who we decide will manage POWC.

    To sign up, you must tell us which country you are from and thus tell us, which team you want to manage this year. You may choose a team from a previous year but past members of the roster (especially captains) will have priority on taking existing teams. New, if any should exist, and old teams are allowed to take eligible players from other teams when those teams stop existing. For example, if Brazil decides to not be a team anymore, Latin America may take all players eligible for their team from Brazil. In general, the following rule will be used in these cases: Players that played in POWC 2018 must play for the same team that they played for last year unless your team no longer exists or didn't exist last year.

    The Application Form:
    Name Captain: [Insert your name here]
    Name Assistant Captain: [Insert their name here]
    Proposed Team/Country/Region: [Insert your team name here]
    Bio: [Put anything you would like to include that may bolster your application here]
    Commitment: [We will be active throughout the whole tournament and will, without fail, send our team line-ups in time]

    Please respect this form.

    Hopefully, we can get 12 teams but higher or lower amounts of even-numbered teams would also suffice. Furthermore, before you sign up, please think about how feasible it is for your country/region/team to yield a team. For example, teams from Vatican City or Belize are very unlikely to yield a full roster in the end. It is also important that you already have some people that you can rely on to sign up, so that we do not have a lot of teams that can’t fill the entire roster in the end. You don’t need to have a full team by now, but some broad idea would be great!

    Please confront us with any questions, comments, or concerns. Thank you and have a good one! The captain signups will close at 23:59 pm GMT+1 on Saturday the 2nd of March and on Sunday 3rd of March the managers are chosen. On the same day, a manager vote will be held on all important issues. The player signups will go open on the Monday the 4th of March and the captains and assistant captains are also assigned on that day too. The signups will close on Sunday, March the 17th and the first week will start on Monday 18th of March.

    Bio: Played for Asia in WCOP and WCOPP last year. Other experience includes starting in SPL last year, starting in POCL last year, managing the Gregarious Garbodors in PPL last year with enormous success, and participating as the assistant captain of team North America in the 2017 edition of WCOPP (also played). I currently live in China and am a native speaker of English, which would make it easier to facilitate communication with other teams' captains.
