    Whats next, both players start a battle (accept) with no sleep clause, no one poke gets slept and the loser can force replay??

    allowing a replay would set a dangerous precedent >.>

    my biggest issue is that po's feature should be trusted to work and it affected the outcome of the match (which kael would have won)

    You guys can try avoiding the issue as much as you like, but it's still really simple.

    1.) Pre agreeing to battle while breaking a rule doesn't matter.

    2.) The last time pre agreeing to battle while breaking a rule occured in spl, the match was replayed. (earthworm vs. phyres, spl1)

    We deserve a rematch on nbs.

    Taylor's team didn't load properly before their battle because things went too fast. LN had Hardy Sceptile because he went too fast. People have forgotten moves on their Pokemon because they went too fast. Any of those situations could have been avoided; everyone before recognized this, and even though it sucks for them, they aren't challenging their losses. Sand Veil Dugtrio in ADV is default nature, and if you don't check it in NBS, the same thing will happen; I know a few times I've had Sand Veil Dugtrio in a match. Blame is on kael in this case for not being careful.

    LN ruling is even dumber than this situation. I'm literally lolling.

    Just wanted to mention that importing a team through text sometimes gives them the "wrong" ability. just an FYI. But i'm still laughing at all of this lol.

    Since LN is playing, weren't all decisions to be made by Mekkah? And didn't he say he agreed with Aldaron's logic earlier in this topic? Let's not pile a bad precedent on top of another bad precedent by letting LN make this call.

    Only the ones he can't make, especially considering I haven't been as active in SPL as I thought I would be (and would have liked to be).

    If we're going to be complete bitches about following rules, this is probably a good time to update the VGC rules for next week (since it turns out that team preview is not used after all). I was going to just go ahead and not use team preview from now on anyway since all the VGC guys know this, but apparently we aren't allowed to use common sense!
