    What is this metgame?
    This is based off of the new battle type that have been revealed for Pokemon X and Y.

    I'm trying to come up with a balanced yet fun and competitive type of play centered around Flying types and Levitate ability Pokemon.

    What can I expect?
    I have had a few battles around the ruleset I have come up. Right now it is a very FAST PACED type pf play. It's either you sweep or get swept.

    Where can I play?
    I have been asking in the Wi-Fi Battle Finder at the moment and many people just ask me first what it is, and then we battle. They seem to enjoy it, as do I.
    I'm not sure how this would work with Showdown as I don't play it, but if someone knows how to add this to the Application, please let me know.

    What is the Ruleset?
    Here is what I have come up with right now, remember this is unofficial until Pokemon X/Y is out or the developers release the information on how it REALLY will work.

    Sky Battle ruleset
    by b2j135

    Weather is banned as a whole (too overpowered at the moment)
    Entry Hazards are banned (their pointless and SR really holds back A LOT of Pokemon)
    ONLY part Flying type Pokemon
    or Pokemon with the ability Levitate
    are allow to play. (This is officially from X/Y itself)
    Air Balloon holding Pokemon do not count. (For now)

    Banned Moves:
    Gravity (pointless and overpowered)
    Stealth Rock
    Toxic Spikes
    Smack Down (pointless and overpowered)
    *Sky Drop (not sure how this would work in the real game so it's here for now)
    Rain Dance (overpowered)
    Sandstorm (for now it is banned, this may change)
    Sunny Day (for now it is banned, this may change)
    Hail (overpowered)

    Once again, THIS IS UNOFFICIAL and will probably change as Sky Battling become more popular. Let me know what you guys think. Also I will be uploading more Sky Battles on my channel this week, I'll link it here once there up.
