- Some legendary Pokemon are banned (Similar to battle tower) - 3v3 single - you can see opponent's Pokemon before a battle starts (The same as PBR) - Time limit for a move selection. if time exceeds, moves will be chosen automatically. - Item and species clause
I'm severely dissapointed, for a number of reasons.
1: no sleep clause, no evasion clause. PBR had this, nintendo official tournaments have this, why can't random wifi?
2: 3 pokemon teams. Why not just let us use 6?
3: revealing teams before battle. What purpose does this serve? Its not like we see our oppoents teams beforehand ingame, why add this feature to what is arguably the most competitive part of the game? Now we might as well just bring 3 OU pokemon and hope for the best. Getting creative and bringing interesting pokemon only hurts you when you're opponents can see it coming.
