The Tournament is a weekly event that was added to PokéFarm on August 12, 2016.
- Note: Visit this page to view all the previous Tournaments!
Users participate in events that are centered around various features on site, such as hatching eggs and scouring. Each Event has three tasks that increase with difficulty. Each one cleared gives a higher reward at the end of the Tournament. Tokens are awarded to those who complete these tasks, Tokens can then be used for various prizes in the Prize Shop. Tokens are also tradable between users.
Below is a breakdown of what can be found in this section on the main Tournament page.
Seasons and Events
A Season consists of 12 events and affects what is available in the Prize Shop, as well as what Tokens and Fakemon are given out as prizes each Tournament. The amount of Tokens awarded at the end of the Tournament is dependent on the task completed. So completing the Easy Task will award 1 Token, completing the Medium Task will award 3 Tokens, and completing the Hard Task will award 5 Tokens. Target awards do not stack, so if the Hard Task is completed, the user will only receive 5 Tokens.

The objective changes with each event, each event revolves around a site feature. From interacting to hatch and evolve Pokémon with a certain area in the Pokédex, to passive events like scouring.
This is where the user's personal progress on the current event is displayed. The current score/points for the user is displayed above the event targets. When a target is completed, a tick will appear next to it.
The Leaderboard is the more competitive aspect of the Tournaments. There are places for 100 users on the Leaderboard. Staying on the Leaderboard requires the user to have a higher score than the user currently in 100th place. The scores are updated approximately every hour. When the Tournament closes, the 100 users who are on the Leaderboard (or more if there are users tied for 100th place) are awarded an Exclusive Egg; this egg changes with each event and one random egg given out is guaranteed to hatch as a Shiny, Albino, or (very rarely) Melanistic. Contrary to eggs bought with tokens, the awarded egg will not break your shiny chain upon hatching.
The Tournament Prize Shop can be found underneath the total amount of tokens in the Tournament Tokens section. Here users can exchange tokens for prizes including Pokémon and items.
The first section of the shop contains Fakémon, which may be unlocked with Tokens. Additional Eggs may be purchased with GP. The second section has Miscellaneous Prizes, including Mega Stones and Forme Changers. XD001 Eggs may also be purchased here.
Tokens are used as a currency in the Prize Shop, which can be found mentioned above. They are normally obtained by participating in the Tournament but they can also be obtained by trading with other users. They currently serve no other purpose.
Tokens from the current season can be traded down to tokens from the previous season at a 1:1 rate. Tokens from 2 seasons ago can also be traded up to tokens from the previous season at a 3:1 rate. Tokens older than from 2 seasons ago are Legacy Items and cannot be used. It is never possible to get the current season's Tokens by trading in, only the previous.
Below is a table of Seasons, the Tokens awarded and how many events took place in the Season.
