    That really should go without saying. Unreleased ability = hacked = disqualified. Same reason they don't mention Keldeo/Meloetta/Genesect.

    Dear Mike Liesik,

    Thank you. Expanded regionals, Canadian nats, no ubers, all gens, AND no Dark Void?

    VGC 2012 looks like the best metagame yet.

    Sincerely,
    evan

    YEAHHHHH NO DARK VOID!!!

    Otherwise, I sorta expected most of the other rules, so I began preparing a team with and without ubers. TIME TO SEE IT IN ACTION!!!!

    Maybe I overlooked it, but I'm guessing it's still double battles, or might they venture off in to 6v6 triples?

    Ok pardon me for noobing this thread up, but isn't Darkrai banned anyway? I guess this rule specifically applies to Smeargle, it must have been pretty fucked up to get outright banned...

    Psyched to see that the GBU Doubles ruleset was supported.

    >_< My bad. The Source link wouldn't work for me on my Wii, and I didn't see OmegaDonut's OP having any battle type specified.

    I was hoping they would incorporate Anime Style Battling but there's always next year I suppose.

    Smeargle can sketch Dark Void, which dominated previous VGCs

    so is there any confirmation wether jirachi not being on the banlist was a typo or not?

    Pretty nice rules. I've never really played VGC, but this pretty wide, open format seems like the perfect time to get into it. Definitely gonna play this year.
