    Hello everyone - Pokemon Online World Cup (POWC) is back again! This year it will be hosted by @Hurricane and myself. In order to have a successful tournament, captains are of course needed.

    Only post here if you want to be a captain in the POWC.

    Captains are expected to be active throughout the whole tournament and should send the team line-ups in time. Dropping out mid-tour would be quite bad and punishable. In addition, captains are held to a higher standard than players when it comes to upholding the rules, and are expected to keep a team environment that doesn't tolerate cheating. Assistant captains are picked by the head captains themselves and therefore don’t need to post separate signups, as long as they appeared on the signups of the head captains. Before the signups deadline, an assistant captain must be picked and posted.

    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 users signing up are the main factors in how we pick the captains.

    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. 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.


    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]

    A PO forum account made after January 1st, 2017 will require a valid link to the corresponding Smogon account to be eligible.

    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 ideas would be great! Ideally, you should have a list of at least 10 eligible players before the deadline of captain signups.

    The captain signups will close at 23:59 pm GMT-5 on Saturday the 29th of February. And on Sunday the 1st of March, the captains are chosen. On the same day, a captain vote will be held on all important issues. The player signups will go open on Monday the 2nd of March. The player signups will close on Sunday, March the 15th and the first week will start on Monday, the 16th of March. Please see the player signups thread for more detail when it goes up.

    Lastly, if you have any additional questions, or want somewhere to talk about the tournament, the official PO Tournament discord can be found here - https://discord.gg/ppxSkUE
