Is that a list of all the Pokemon that aren't allowed? If I have one of Pokemon in my party do they just not let me play online, or does it work differently? Also, are there any items or moves that are banned?

A couple of moves like Sky Drop that cause glitches are banned, and I think there are items that might be banned too. Of particular note, though, I'm pretty sure most Nintendo tournaments have Item Clause, meaning no two Pokemon on your team can hold the same item, which most other places like Smogon do not have.

They won't let you in with those mons. And I think only Soul Dew is banned(not sure), and you can't have 2 of the same item.
