yukairu Sand Veil is currently technically banned in gen 4 1v1, because the rules for gen 4 1v1 are based on Gen 4 OU, and Sand Veil has not been unbanned for 1v1.

I feel that it's simple enough (no one would use sandstorm in 1v1 lol) to implement it now or at least when playoffs start

I will check and see what has been done before in 1v1 tours when an unban/ban has been put in place mid-tour. If theres no consistent decisions/nothing at all/the decisions say allowing it is fine, I will have no issue allowing it next round

In Game 1 of Djokra vs LXRC, Djokra brought Cacturne, but did not use it. Cacturne only has one ability, Sand Veil, which is unbanned on Azure but is explicitly banned by the tour rules in the current round. Due to an error with the simulator, Cacturne was able to have it's Generation 5 Hidden Ability, Water Absorb, and so Djokra thought that it was legal. It was later confirmed that this Cacturne DID have Water Absorb, and was not just a visual glitch. Additionally, it was not an issue unique to Cacturne. ANY Pokemon was able to have ANY ability.

Because this is clearly a simulator glitch, it falls under the guidelines given in https://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/tournament-rules-and-general-guidelines.3642760/.

Simulator Glitches: Any battle mechanics not properly implemented in the simulator used for a tournament battle are fair game, unless explicitly banned by that tournament's rules. Illegal movesets that are not restricted by the simulator fall into this category as well. However, this does not include faulty tier scripts; for example, if there was a bug in the BW OU tier script that allowed you to use Drizzle and Swift Swim on the same team, taking advantage of this would result in disqualification in that battle. If a game breaking glitch is discovered, we will make a blanket tournament ban on that glitch via an announcement in the Tournaments forum until it is fixed.

Because neither Cacturne, nor Water Absorb, are explicitly banned by gen41v1 rules, this game will stand.

Any games played on Azure after this post is made will be null.
