Fantendo Pokémon Showdown is a competitive Pokémon tournament hosted by .vectorDestiny (tbc) utilizing Smogon's Pokémon Showdown simulator. The first two editions utilized a group system and it's own set of rules, but the third and current edition is going to utilize Smogon's OU ruleset and a bracket system.

Information about the previous editionscan be found here and here.
