    DW Ability: Magic Mirror
    Move: Baton Pass

    All DW Espeons are Male, and cannot pass DW abilities to offspring. Baton Pass is a breeding only move.

    illegal :P

    so no. It's legal.

    EDIT: Unless I'm misinterpreting something here?

    If all the released Espeon are male, then Ditto can't count as male -_- That unless GF decided to troll us again allowing homsexual breeding, lol.

    Indeed, Baton Pass Dream World Espeon is illegal.

    For the record, so is Baton Pass Dream World Blaziken, for the same reason.

    Only females can pass on the Dream World ability. If Ditto is always male then it can never pass on a Dream World ability.

    Not to mention that Ditto isn't even released, so that point is moot.

    All of the event starters:

    Blaziken / Sceptile / Swampert
    Charizard / Venusaur / Blastoise
    Infernape / Empoleon / Torterra

    Cannot use egg moves or gen IV only moves. (this needs to be fixed)
    Likewise Togekiss, Mamoswine and Toxicroak cannot use egg moves or gen IV only moves. The former 2 cannot use prevolution moves either.

    There seems to be technical difficulties in implementing the ability / move ban though.

    No Eevee were released. That is incorrect.

    For the record, even if PO hasn't been updated, you can go to any mod to stop a battle that has an illegal Pokemon (giving you the win). If the opponent bitches enough about being forced to lose, they can even kick your opponent for you :D

    I go to the TheFourthChaser for all my noob-kicking needs.

    As of Black Version 2 and White Version 2, Eevee with their Hidden Ability are available in-game (albeit rarely), so Eevee evolutions may now legally know Egg Moves

    ...Female Eevees with their hidden ability have been out since May of 2011. PO has been updated with their arrival for ages now; there isn't a problem or a reason to necrobump.
