The Special Battle rules for Season 4 have been revealed. Season 4 will run from May 16th 2017 to July 18th 2017 and runs on Sun & Moon. This ruleset requires you to bring up to 6 Pokémon to the selection screen, but you only bring 1 Pokémon to the battle. Mega Stones, Focus Sash, Z-Crystals and Eviolite are banned:

The other standard rules apply, including all set to Level 50 if above that, and you choose 1 Pokémon out of your 6, and you cannot have two Pokémon holding the same hold item. Battles have a 5 minute duration, with turns having a 15 second timer!
So its gonna be a 1VS1 Metagame! Tapu Lele,Mimikyu and Tapu Koko are looking great for this! Also Choice Scarf Porygon-Z with Hyper Beam looks like a nuke that can win a lot of games!
