Hey man, just to answer your question about AR and it's legalness for VGCs, basically you cannot edit your pokemon, or make it shiny, or Encounter Codes. Basically the only codes you can use are:Fast Egg Hatch, Infinite Item, and Cloning. This is because they can't tell when you've used one of these cheats.
Hey. We appear to be opponents for the first round of Smogon Tournament 7. I'll be busy with finals and a few other things until next Wednesday, which I believe is the... 22nd? Let me know if that is a good day for you, or if you would be more willing to take care of the game between holidays. I apologize that I am not able to get it done beforehand.
