Something I had planned to bring up far too long ago, on LCF, that has recently been brought to light (and given competitive meaning) by Selfdistruct Munchlax is the "egg rule" which is: The reason that the rule is included is unclear, the Nintendo games that Little Cup is based off do not have it: and the PBR version also lacks this rule. I am not sure when it was introduced, but when LC was revived, the rule was copied from an old guide by thorns. Before boomlax this had no competitive effect whatsoever, every Pokemon banned by it was already banned by one of the other rules, either The Pokémon must be able to evolve. or The Pokémon must be the earliest evolution stage obtainable. Meant that the few Pokemon who can't hatch from an egg (legends, Unown and Ditto) were already precluded for being allowed in. Basically, the rule did nothing. I almost posted something suggesting it was removed back on LCF, but was distracted by something, and it was doing practically no harm. However now that it has a competitive effect, I propose we bring the LC metagame into line with the rules used by the games from which it originates, and remove the "hatchlings only" rule. Edit: Pre-emptively as this was brought up on #littlecup, the reason this is different from Rotom is that this both simplifies the rules and brings them closer to what LC was originally based off, even though it changes the base rules that we currently have. The rule change required for Rotom does precisely the opposite in both cases.
