Hosted by Dice
Tradeback: A Pokémon taught a move in a later game and traded back to the earlier game. Most notable in the first generation of Pokémon, where certain Pokémon could learn moves in the second generation which would augment their movepools.
This tournament will be allowing you to use GSC Tradebacks. This means you will have Amnesia Persian, Hypno, etc. making the metagame much more offensive, consequently very different.
