    Its a shame Sky drop is banned. It's a great move for doubles. Stormed the battle tower with it, didn't realise it was banned online.

    Also, why does everyone keep using japanease names for pokemon

    Sky Drop is glitched.

    Metronome should also be banned imo, as when it selects Dig / Fly / Bounce and is Encored, the Pokémon using Metronome will stay in the semi-invulnerable state until it is knocked out or switched out.
    Yeah, I know the odds of this happening are really low =P

    not changing items is due to the new battle box function in the games.

    I also wonder how people will be assigned to their matches this year. Do you think it' semi-random like it was in the previous years or will the games feature some sort of pairing players against each other?
