Cliffhanger Ruleset

Updated: Aug 3, 2020

Full Thread of the Original Announcement Can Be Found Here:

GO Stadium introduces Cliffhanger, a 4-Tier format with point-based roster construction, enabling unprecedented diversity and strategic depth at the Pokémon eligibility and team building level.
You will have 17 points to spend as you build your team of any 6 Pokémon, but be careful not to go over the edge. With carefully curated tier placement, all Pokémon are eligible, but some will demand more of your budget than others.
Do you go All-In on a Top Tier option or spread your points evenly across your team? Do you embrace the challenge of artfully crafting a roster from the bottom-up? The choice is yours, and the options are boundless.
All GO Stadium remote lobbies will be participating in Cliffhanger with tournaments scheduled to start on the 14th or 15th of September. These will be run as unranked tournaments on For those in tiered lobbies, it will be counting towards your lobby leaderboards.
The tournament will be played in Great League. The Species Clause as well as other standard Silph Arena rules apply.
Feel free to use this format in your local and remote communities if you like it.
For anyone interested in more in-depth discussions on the format, we have a channel on the GO Stadium Server dedicated to Cliffhanger. You can join our server by following this link:
