Sorry for the double post, but I've added another thing to discuss. This one involves Eviolite Stones due to how cheap they can be, but they aren't completely broken. Let the discussion take place.

I'm not gonna allow 3 Eviolite Stones on a team just so it will help you. If a team was full of Eviolite, it could be very cheap, depending on the Pokemon.

Ordinarily I oppose the Item Clause at all turns, but now that the battle style has officially been made 3 vs. 3 I find it easier to support the clause. 3 vs. 3 makes me think of the Battle Frontier, where the Item Clause is in effect, and for very good reason. 3 vs. 3 simply prevents effective team diversity, no matter how you look at it, and competition for slots becomes fierce. As such, it is easier to abuse certain strategies. For example, as Reuniclus mentioned, a team full of Focus Sashes could be tough to handle effectively, as Stealth Rock is no longer an effective move with only 3 enemies to deal with, and both Abomasnow and Tyranitar suffer extreme blows to usefulness. A similar argument could be made with the Eviolite, but I don't feel much like going into details.

As such, I believe that it would be fair to instate the Item Clause (words you will never hear me say ever again) simply because of the 3 vs. 3 style. Looking forward to this tournament!

Well.. I suppose it is reasonable to add the Item Clause. And if you really want some practice, I advise Random Matchup as long as you dont have the legendaries.. I think I almost got an Item Clause free team

I'd like to add that we should also ban any items that cannot be legitimately obtained in Gen V, such as the Salac Berry.

Seeing as I do not know all the items that cannot be legitimately obtained in Gen V, it would be helpful if someone were to point out all the (useful competitive battling) items that can only be obtained in Gen V illegitimately.

Good timing! I was actually raising a team before this thread existed! But the way I'm training is by making teams in every single region of Pokemon (Including XD and Colosseum) and later transferring them to my Pokemon White.

Also, I agree completely with the 3 VS 3 idea. As you've said before, it let's people show their true talents. Another thing, I think putting this tournament on the last Saturday of August is a great idea, since people could EV train and stuff like that. One question though: If Black and White 2 were come out between now and the tournament, would we be allowed to use it?

I wouldn't count on it being released as I think Japan isn't even getting it until June.. I think. Also, I have a question: Are we aloud to put 3 or more pokemon in our party when the tournament comes and switch our pokemon around or something to confuse our opponent but only enter 3 pokemon?

Well, you're only allowed to battle with 3 Pokemon. If you are found with more than 3 Pokemon on your team when you go to battle your opponent, you will be disqualified immediately, even if you win the battle. So no, you are not allowed to have more than 3 Pokemon in your party when the tournament comes around.

Double post, but for good reason.

I'm a little late on updating this, but I have added the Item Clause to the rules. Unless someone is strongly opposed to it and has reason to back that, the Item Clause will stand.

Will there be prizes for the winner of the tournament, and for those coming in 2nd, 3rd, or 4th?

I've talked to Cat a little bit about getting some ads for this tourney on YT (still waiting on that video, by the way), so it will most likely have prizes for those who make it to the semi-finals, the person who takes runner-up, and the person who ends up winning it all.

I think I need to talk Cat more about this tourney.
