The Pokewars! Whirl Cup Competition is based on the Whirl Cup Competition featured in the Pokemon Anime during the Master Quest season of the show. The tournament consists of six days of Water Pokemon battles at an underwater Coliseum (with white, round platforms). The Whirl Cup Competition is held every three years on Red Rock Isle of the Whirl Islands (the Islands between Olivine City and Cianwood City).
The first two days in the Coliseum are 16 one-on-one Water Pokemon battles comprising Round One. The 16 winners move on to Round Two, where they are paired up randomly by a computer to have 2-on-2 Water Pokemon matches. The 8 winners from there move on to Round Three, which is also 2-on-2. The 4 winners from there move on to the Semi-Finals, where the Trainers have 3-on-3 Pokemon matches. The two winners of the Semi-Finals move on to the Final Round, which is also 3-on-3 and determines the winner, who is declared a Water Pokemon Alpha-Omega and gets a Mystic Water Pendant during the Closing Ceremonies (which are held on the same day as the last match) as well as $10,000 in prize money.
