Major questions that need to be answered:
  • When? I'm thinking late November, sometime around Thanksgiving.
    Sounds good.
  • Who shall run it? Ditto, would you like to do it?
    I don't see why I couldn't do it. I might have to have someone be my back up just in case something comes up
  • What format? Singles, Doubles, or Rotation? (Triples are too gimmicky.)
    Probably singles, unless outcry for Doubs or Rotations
  • What is the stance on Mega Evolutions?
    Should be allowed, since it does take some timing to pull them off right.
  • Rules?
    • All battles must be performed on a legal copy of Pokémon X or Pokémon Y using legitimately obtained Pokémon
    • Please save Battle Videos. These may be requested for official reasons.
    • Sleep/Freeze Clause
      Like TurtX said, Freeze is usually uncontrollable, so Freeze Clause is usually left out
    • Item Clause
      Usually in normal competitive rules, Item Clause isn't in play, so this one can be debated
    • Selfdestruct Clause
    • No more than one Pokémon from each generation
    • No more than one Pokémon from an evolution line
    • Anything else?
      Probably should just say evasion clause instead of banning Evasive heightening moves and items.
  • What should be banned?
    • Double Team
    • Legendary Pokémon
      Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres could be argued
    • Blaziken
    • Wobbuffet
      With Ghost types not being affected by Shadow tag anymore, this could be debated.
    • Moody
    • Bright Powder

Please discuss.
I think that does it.

Alright, sounds good. Singles, no Freeze Clause or Item Clause, add Evasion Clause, and allow Wobbuffet.

Can blaziken with its Blaze ability be used? But with no mega stone. Cause without speed boost blaziken isnt as good but decent enough to be usable.

Hm, I believe we can allow Blaziken with Blaze and without its Mega Stone.

(Seriously, who thought Speed Boost was a good idea? That Yanmega in the Elite Four of Diamond/Pearl should've shown why it shouldn't have been used.)

Don't get me started on Aaron's Yanmega... Speed Boost Mega Blaziken deserves its own tier above Ubers. It's too good at sweeping entire teams with little effort and no set up. IT'S THE META KNIGHT OF POKEMON!

Hm, what do you guys think of having it on November 30 (two days after Thanksgiving in the US)?

Also, I need to get a tally for how many people are interested.

I don't hate it. All it means to me is that I REALLY have to get on making a team.

Aieeeek. That date is a little constraining, but it could work.

I think Mario 3D World comes out the day before that.

My team has been finished for a few days so that's alright with me. I just hope I'm not doing anything that day.

So when does this start then? Can pokemon from friend safari be used? Like say like hitmonlee or blissey?
So will sandveil and other abilitys that would boost evade be banned as well?
One last question, will Drizzle and swiftswim combo be used as the weather acts like raindance now with that 5 turn limit?

Drizzle + Swift Swim will likely remain banned for this tournament. Friend Safari Pokémon are certainly eligible as long as you meet the requirement of one Pokémon from each generation without reusing the same evolutionary line. As for other banned abilities...I don't know.

Smogon recently announced Blaziken as an Uber.
http://www.smogon.com/forums/threads...nlist.3491371/
So are we still going to be able to use Blaziken or not?

Blaziken with Speed Boost is banned, yes, but I see no reason to ban it if it has Blaze. Is there anything wrong with Blaze Blaziken?

I personality think Blaziken with Blaze is harmless, although I am not Smogon so I don't know.
