Alright, since the next league is set to take place around mid-2011 I'd like to make sure no-one forgets about it. That, and you're likely going to need some time to prepare since the old doubles league that ended up being cancelled last time is returning...but with a slight change. The clauses active are as follows: * Species Clause: No two Pokemon with the same National Pokedex number can be used on one team. * Item Clause: All 6 hold items on your team MUST be unique - no duplicate items whatsoever. Soul Dew is banned from use entirely. * Fair Play Clause: If a player uses Explosion, Self Destruct, Perish Song or Destiny Bond to cause a draw, the user of the respective move loses. Same doubles clauses as ever, but this is where the change lies - you see, while we initially used VGC09's ban list, which looked like this: The following Pokemon are banned from use: Mewtwo Mew Lugia Ho-oh Celebi Kyogre Groudon Rayquaza Jirachi Deoxys Dialga Palkia Giratina Phione Manaphy Darkrai Shaymin Arceus VGC10 did something a little different, having a restricted list AND a ban list, as shown: You can use up to any two of the following on your team: Mewtwo Ho-Oh Lugia Groudon Kyogre Rayquaza Dialga Palkia Giratina The following Pokemon are banned from use: Mew Celebi Jirachi Deoxys Phione Manaphy Darkrai Shaymin Arceus As you can probably see, this means VGC10 allowed (some) Ubers to compete, whereas VGC09 did not. So, the decision is in your hands - you've seen the two banlists, so the vote is yours - will it be VGC09 (all Ubers are banned) or VGC10 (some Ubers are permitted but restricted) rules for this year's league?
