The Celestial Tournament

Welcome to Xu-Fu's Celestial Tournament guide!

The Celestial Tournament is a special event and by most seen as the pinnacle of pet battle challenges. You can do it once a week and inside, you will face three pet battle masters, followed by the four Celestials to fight against. The three masters change every week and there's a total of three sets of them rotating through.
Doesn't sound that hard, but what makes it tricky is that once you're in, you cannot heal your pets anymore! That makes planning ahead very important, and this is where Xu-Fu comes in with the Celestial Tournament Planner.

This tool will guide you through all the fights and you can select alternatives that work for you, depending on the pets you have available. It is all saved to the planner and in the end presents you will have an overview and a personal guide for your Celestial Tournament experience.

You will also get a unique ID for your planned setup and a link that you can bookmark or share with others. When you need your strategies again in the following weeks, it is super easy to go back and you will see exactly what strategies you were using last time. No scribbled notes, no mess of links to go through or forgotten tactics! Wanna give it a try? There you go:

Or if you've already gone through the planner before and noted down your Planner ID, punch it in here to go to your personal strategies:



Below you will find a list of pets that are suitable to beat the Celestial Tournament. You do not necessarily need those pets, but with them you can use the first alternative listed here on every fight:

I don't understand how you can have 4 occurences of Scourged Whelpling since you can only have 3 occurences of a pet.

12 coins 10 weeks ;) You get the first 3 coins all in the first week, then the remaining 9 coins are acquired one per week thereafter :)

Thanks for this great & powerful tool. It would be wonderful if there were some sort of accompanying addon to easily select pets and view notes in-game.

Unfortunately, the top strategy for the Wise Mari fight does not work for me. I have a p/p gryphon, a h swamp croaker, and both breeds of scourged whelpling. Following the instructions, verbatim, I lose 3/4 attempts. I often don't even get to the second flock, and otherwise die long before the "slicing wind until dead" step.

Hey! The best addon I can recommend is Rematch. It does pretty much what you ask for :-)

At some point I will have to revisit the Celestial Tournament but for the moment I would like to ask you to try one of the other strategies for Wise Mari

Thanks for responding. Even without regular updates, it makes your site feel vibrant and rich.

I do use rematch and it's fantastic - I also think it's awesome the way your site exports into rematch formats. When I mentioned addon support, though, I was really thinking more along the lines of a tool that could take a tournament ID from your site and import the whole thing at once. Perhaps even taking inventory of available pets and generating the match-ups dynamically. I haven't really experimented w/ the "notes during battle" feature of rematch, but it does seem like it would require a whole lot of copy/paste work to get the site data into it.

Still, as is the site helped me get where I need to be and I thank you for it!

You are very welcome, thank you for the praise :-)

I do have bigger plans for automations and exports like that. Maybe not exactly along the lines of your idea, but similar ^^ I'm about ...80% done with a login system, where you can register an account (through battle.net verification, much like "login with facebook", but using battle.net). This grabs your pet collection from the armory. That's the first step I'm working on.

Next step will be the more exciting one. I will rework the strategy alternatives, so instead of being numbered in a specific order, the page crosscheckes the alternatives with your pet collection and gives you the one you have the pets for on top. Then I could also redo the tournament planner because it could just do everything automatically and in the end spew out a long rematch import link and a list of strategies.

Well, that's the plan for now :-) My time for developing features is limited so progress is a bit slow, but I'm getting there eventually ^^

Admittedly, there is a way to heal pets on these fights. All you need is a pet with Bleat.
Wrathion (Week A), Wise Mari (Week B), Goldbloom(Week C), and Yu'la all start off with non-damaging moves. So you can fight them, use Bleat, then Forfeit and your pets remain healed.

Hey guys, I wouldn't say I'm new to pet battling but I'm definitely far from great. Does anyone have a planner ID that has a great success rate, or is it set up in such a way that whatever I choose, I will be able to find success most of the time?

The latter is the case! The different fights are to check against the pets you have. Some strategies are a bit more luck based than others, but they usually are noted as such and you can always change them in the planner tool anyway.

The tournament planner is really great, thank you!

Only one minor thing: My personalized planner redirects to a page without the id in the URL (firefox), therefor bookmarking doesn't work. I had to copy the URL from the previous link with the ID attached to bookmark it correctly.

Hey Ascar! That is not optimal, I realize. It happens due to a recent change I made in the page structure.
The truth however is, I'll not fix this now. Everything I'm working on is towards a "Xu-Fu 2.0" version that will ultimately get rid of and completely replace the tournament planner. Hope it's not too inconvenient for you until then!

For now:
If you click on 'overview' and then highlight the url very quickly you can grab a copy before it refreshes (I recommend using ctrl-c, it is faster then right click). If your not fast enough you can also look through your browser history, chrome records both the url with CTID and the redirected one.

p.s. You can also look through the source code for the CTID if you're so inclined.

Hey Ibglitrbug! What you encounter is indeed normal. You only get 3 coins for the very first time. Then it's one per week, so you have to do it 3 times for each additional pet.

I have not had any success using Masked Tanuki 2,1,1 Fox 1,1,2 and chicken 1,1,2 vs Sully "The Pickle" McLeary. It starts with 3 Tongue Lashes and then Survival finishing off with Tongue Lash. I have not been able to live long enough to get the Survival cast. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Is is breed dependent for this? Right now my Masked Tanuki is P/B.
