Dumbish question about competitive battling....

#1jEr3mYPosted 10/7/2013 7:39:21 AM
Given with how Smogon makes rules and blah blah... Do we have to follow those rules if we want to battle competitively???

i wanna make a team.. but don't really wanna follow their rules of "No Swift Swim + Drizzle" for example....

Depends on where you're playing.

All depends on who you want to battle. If you want to battle Smogon battlers, gotta follow those rules. Want to play VGC, you have to follow those rules. So on and so forth.

Depends on where and who your playing.

Usually if you just go into a random fight online its whatever goes.

If your on serebii and you agree to standard rules, most likely smogon.

Well I just wanna battle randoms... as I'll be playing on my 3DS, not the Smogon simulator....

I was aware I'd have to follow the rules if playing in a certain place though...

Then what was the question?

Assuming the standard random battle rules, there will be no event-only pokemon allowed, and most legendaries will be banned, with the common exception of the legendary trios and perhaps a few others.

Certain pokemon/move combinations will be disallowed, but we're talking, like, super-obscure stuff where one pokemon back in Gen 3 got a special move from some forgotten event, and the game designers forgot/decided not to program the game to accept that special move as legit. So it's stuff that you probably couldn't transfer into the game anyway.

Uses smogon for reference to get a hold of what competitive battling like, but just play in any way you like it without having to follow the clauses etc. etc.
