    Hello everyone! Pokemon Online World Cup (POWC) is scheduled to return this year. This is the thread to sign up to captain a team in this tournament.

    The following teams are expected to return this year:

    Argentina
    Brazil
    Caribbean
    China
    Europe
    France
    Germany
    India
    Italy
    Latin America
    NA East
    NA West-Central
    Spain
    United Kingdom + Ireland

    Eligibilities:

    - A PO forum account made after January 1st, 2017 will require a valid link to the corresponding Smogon account to be eligible. If your PO and Smogon names are not the same, please explicitly state so in your signup.

    - You should have a general idea of your roster before signing up. If you are signing up for a new team, please make sure that you have at least a 12-player roster with players willing to play under your captaincy.

    - The eligibility rule remains the same as in previous years: You play for the team you played for in the last year, unless you didn't play last year, or the team you played for last year no longer exists, or you are trying to play for a team that didn't exist last year.

    - Please note that we will not be accepting alternative versions of teams (such as Spain #2 or China #2).

    Pre-season:

    - Any teams that were not part of POWC 2020 must also participate in a qualifier if they wish to enter this year.

    - Based on current information, we will have a 6-team pre-season where 4 out of the 6 teams will make the main event. These 6 teams include Africa, Argentina, Asia-Pacific, Greece, India and Venezuela. This is subjected to change.

    - The tiers represented in the pre-season will be G1 ~ 7 OU + 2 * G8 OU (9 games to avoid tie).

    - Based on the assumption that we have 6 teams competing for 4 spots, the pre-season would work as the following:

    1. Argentina and India choose 1 team out of the 4 new teams respectively to go in their group. Let's call the selected teams A & B. (A coin flip will decide whether Argentina or India would choose first)

    2. The other 2 remaining teams X & Y will be randomly assigned. So the two groups will be:
    1) Argentina, team A, team X
    2) India, team B, team Y

    3. Team A and Argentina will face each other, and loser of the series will face team X. The loser of the latter will not make the main event. This would essentially favor the returning 2020 team with a "second life" before being eliminated from the main event.

    Same can be said about the other group, where India and team B will face each other, and the loser will face team Y. The loser of the latter will not make the main event.


    Captain Signups Deadlines:

    - For any teams that were not part of POWC 2020, and for Team India and Argentina, the deadline is Feb. 28th 23:59 GMT. These teams should have their rosters ready by March 7th 23:59 GMT.

    - For the other 12 teams, the deadline for captain signups is March 7th 23:59 GMT.

    Please post here if and only if you are applying for captaincy. If you have any legitimate questions or concerns, feel free to ask us via forum PM or discord. You can reach out to us by joining the PO Tournament discord.
