Hope this helped!Two questions, and they are big ones too!
1.When battling VGC style, during the "Team Preview" portion before the battle starts, when the opponent views your team, can they see your Pokemon's nicknames? No, you can only see your opponents Pokemon, and their level, gender, and if they have an item.
2. What is the year of birth minimum and maximum for seniors division? The maximum is 1997, while the minimum is 2001(I think).
1. No. All they can see is the sprite, gender, level, and whether it's holding an item.Two questions, and they are big ones too!

I believe you need a Trainer Club account to claim your prizes if you win.Alright great, that confirms that I can still be in Seniors this year! Thanks voodoo. I just came across another question, on pokemon.com, it says I need an account on some website or something to participate, is this true?
That's the one. Go to your profile and click on the "My Play! Pokémon" tab. The player ID listed is what you'll need.Which sprouts another question. What is this "Train Club" and how can I make an account on it? I already have an account on Pokemon.com, so that's that.
I don't think that it has been enough of an issue that they had to do anything about it YET however I believe that now there would be more of a classification as to what stalling will be for reasons I would prefer not to get into." Players who are found to be intentionally delaying the pace of their matches will be disqualified from the event."

I didn't know this rule existed, has it ever been enforced? If so, how do they evaluate "intentionally delaying?"
Personally it seems controversial, seeing as one could unintentionally stall while they try and choose a move. At the same time, I'm sure stalling has and will continue to occur.
