Tournament Announcement (June 6th 2021)

Hiya Everyone!!

This is the forum post indicating the rules in the next tournament. Any pokemon, move, ability or item that is not listed below in the ban list section, is eligible for the next tournament. This list is now accurate for the pokemon within 8.2.

Once again I LOVED the variety and creativity within the last tournament, especially with the limited selection, so we're going to try one more tournament in this fashion. The theme/ format of the next tournament is Monotype Psychic 😮

This means that every pokemon in your team must be psychic typing. You can have dual type pokemon, as long as one of the types are psychic.


Hattrem (Psychic) - Allowed
Gallade (Psychic/Fighting) - Allowed
Skarmory (Steel/ Flying) - Disallowed
