    The VGC '98 Tournament!
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    It’s time for a VGC 2011 style metagame with a retro twist. Fight with your original 151 favorites in a modern way!

    Rules:
    • 5th Gen flat battles, Doubles 4v4, Level 50.
    • Species Clause: A Player may not have two of the same Pokemon on their team.
    • Item Clause: A Player may not have the same item on two or more of his or her Pokemon
    • Self-KO Clause: If a player’s last Pokemon faints due to Explosion, sort of recoil, or faints after using Destiny Bond and brings down the opponent’s last Pokemon, the last Pokemon of those two to faint, wins.
    • Sky Drop Clause: No Pokemon may know Sky Drop.
    • Please use legitimate Pokemon if possible.
      • For those of you who would like to enter the tournament with legal hacks, you absolutely must make sure they are completely battle legal. This includes but is not limited to level / movepool / Pokeball restraints. Making your Pokemon battle legal is entirely your burden, do not ask for assistance here.
      • If your opponent reports you using illegal hacks, you will be disqualified and possibly blacklisted!
    • Wonder Launcher is set to off.
    Please note that in the style of VGC tournements, the Sleep and Evasion Clauses are OFF.

    Banlists:
    • Pokemon: #150-649 are banned (all Pokemon above Gen 1 + Mewtwo + Mew)
    • Abilities: Unreleased Dream World abilities and Drought (due to lack of opposing permaweather) are banned.

    You are free to use Rain Dance, Sunny Day, Sandstorm, Hail, Gravity, or whatever you'd like. The ban on Drought was just a measure to stop Sun teams from dominating with the lack of opposing perma weather.
