The Good Old DaysHave you missed breaking down teams with unstoppable Boltbeam coverage? Have you longed for the days where you could just sleep your opponents before they got off an attack? Or maybe you just disagree with some tiering decisions made by the council. If so, this is the tour for you; everything legal at the start of the generation may be used.
- This is exclusively a SM Mix and Mega tournament.

Mix and Mega Rules:
- Mix-and-Mega is an Ubers-based metagame that allows you to use any Mega Stone (or Orb) on any fully-evolved Pokémon
- When that Pokémon then Mega Evolves or undergoes Primal Reversion, it undergoes the same stat modifications that the original user of that Mega Stone/Orb does, along with its ability and any type changes that the Mega Evolved/Primal Reversion form has compared to the base species.
- You may Mega Evolve any number of Pokemon on the same team
- If you use Red/Blue Orb, the transformation occurs instantly upon switch-in
- If you use a Mega Stone or Orb that gives you a secondary typing that's the same as your primary typing, you no longer have a secondary typing (ie: Red Orb Charizard)
- A Mega Stone or Orb cannot in any way removed from its holder if the holder can Mega Evolve/Primal Revert with it, regardless of whether the holder is the "correct" species or not
- If a Pokémon with multiple Formes that it can change between mid-battle Mega Evolves, it is locked into a Mega based on that Forme. (ie: Meloetta)
- Transform/Imposter, Protean, and Color Change are not Forme changes
- General Bans: Baton Pass. Baton Pass may not be used at all
- Banned stones: Beedrillite, Gengarite, Kangaskhanite, Mawilite, Medichamite. Pokemon cannot Mega Evolve using these stones unless they naturally do so (ie Gengar with Gengarite)
- The following Pokemon can't Mega Evolve using non-native stones: Arceus, Deoxys-A, Deoxys-N, Dialga, Giratina, Groudon, Ho-Oh, Kyogre, Kyurem-White, Lugia, Lunala, Mewtwo, Palkia, Rayquaza, Reshiram, Slaking, Solgaleo, Xerneas, Yveltal, Zekrom, and Zygarde in conjunction with Power Construct. Unless they have a stone of their own (Such as Kyogre or Groudon) they may not Mega Evolve at all.
- List of Unbans: Blazikenite, Darkrai, Dragonite, Electrify, Kyurem-B, Pheromosa, Regigigas, Shaymin-S, Shadow Tag
- Note: Despite not being available at the start of Gen 7, Gen 7 move changes are fine for this metagame. I don't expect you to remember and hunt down every moveset change to figure out what is and isn't allowed, nor do I expect you to automatically remember without that.
Rounds will last one week apiece. I encourage everybody to post when they are active and ready to play so that I can gauge activity at the end of the round. Otherwise, unfinished match advancements will be decided by coin flips.

Deadline is as long as you need, but aim sometime in the next week or two.
