    In?

    First time doing anything competitive related... Let's see if I like it. (Haven't even done Wi-Fi random matchups or anything... Time to start researching.)


    EDIT:

    Two questions though:
    1) Are a pokemon's base move" allowed? (not sure if that's what they are called, the moves that, where you to look at a pokemon moves by level up guide, would have no level next to it, so you could only get it from the egg hatching, or if it was an evolving from the person that teaches your pokemon moves they knew before by level up)

    2) Just follow with me here. Moves that are from level up are allowed. Moves that are from level up that also happen to be TMs are allowed. The level limit is 50. Are moves that are TMs, but can be learned from level 51+ via level up allowed?


    Sorry for complicating things~
