Let's a do the truffle shuffle!
The rules for the Alola friendly where finally announced! https://3ds.pokemon-gl.com/information/173540c6-ac2a-4d47-b5db-b9a2a197607e
Here are the major details to glean from this tournament.
-This is a 3v3 singles metagame
-Only Pokemon in the Alola dex are allowed
-Boxart Ubers and mythical legendaries are banned. So basically, no Lunala, Solgaleo, Zygarde, Necrozma, and Magearna this time.
-Mega Stones are banned, so no Mega Gyarados either!
-Sign ups start January 19th, and the tournament starts January 29th.
-Like last time, you get 50 Battle Points for participating.
I may add stuff like a viability ranking later, but for now, let's discuss the ramifications on the stuff this metagame removes!
