Pokemon Organized Play Sanctioning Guidelines
October 2003-2004 Edition
This document is used in conjunction with the Pokémon Organized Play Floor Rules document. Tournament organizers are required to follow the guidelines set forth for sanctioned tournament play.
Tournament organizers are encouraged to sanction events online at least 14 days in advance. This allows players to find out about your tournament, leading to better attendance. We do allow tournament organizers to sanction events on the day the event occurs, but this should be used in very rare circumstances.
Minimum Number of Players
For an event to remain sanctioned,
there must be a minimum of 8 players. If there are not
enough players, run the tournament as normal, but report the
tournament as cancelled.
Tournament results are due to Pokémon
Organized Play within 14 days after the event. Any results
not submitted by this time are considered delinquent, and
may jeopardize the tournament organizer's ability to host
future tournaments. As this also affects the player's
enjoyment of the game, it is important for tournament
organizers to report their events in a timely manner.
Results for an event may be updated at
any time by the tournament organizer, until the tournament
has been marked as "Completed". Once that tournament is
final, ratings and rankings for individual players will be
calculated the next morning. For any changes to the event
results after that point, the tournament organizer of record
will need to contact
firstname.lastname@example.org to have the match result
Pokémon Organized Play reserves the right to remove privileges of any tournament organizer sanctioned by the program. A tournament organizer who has been suspended for substantial delinquent tournaments or other reasons may contact email@example.com to appeal for re-instatement.
