For those of you building new teams, here are some helpful hints:
- Sleep Clause is enabled, because sleep in BW is ridiculous. There's no powder immunity like in gen 6, and the sleep timer resets when a sleeping Pokemon switches out. This means HypnoGravity is technically not banned, but you're probably better off not using it.
- Sky Drop creates a game breaking glitch and is banned.
- Don't look at any BW team I've ever built for inspiration. They are all terrible.
