January's competition is Simple Symphony, running on the final weekend of the month as usual.
When we think of the "Monotype" format, the rule that comes to mind is "everyone on the team must share a type". But this format invokes a different sense of the word: all dual-types are banned (as are the traditional Nintendo-Ubers list), but other than that you're free to run whatever combination of types you want.
Single battles, 10 minute time limit, but items use the VGC Moon series banlist (so mega stones aren't allowed, but Z-crystals are).
The prize is just 50 BP again, so no more shinies being handed out like hotcakes (and with it, participation in the contest is probably doomed to lag behind the last few months).
- 3v3 Singles (6v6 team preview)
- Pokemon will be level 50 during the battle
- item clause
- mega stones are banned
- Pokemon must only have one type
Playable on Pokemon Showdown!
