K, as someone pointed out in the main rules topic, our rules are fairly unconventional and aimed more at diversity and entertainingly 'different' battles. Which is good, and I continue to heartily encourage people to use more than just the bog standard teams that EVERYONE uses. There are 493 (And then some, in a way) Pokemon out there and it's nice to see some more interesting uses for the ones that don't generally make it onto things like Netbattle or Shoddy or whatever. However, I appreciate, especially with the tournament in the summer coming up, that some people may be looking for a point of reference to a more serious competitive ruleset as an alternative. So, if you're up for it - let me know and post your recommendations for this new alternative ruleset. If people also want to try and come up with OverUsed, UnderUsed or whatever lists to use in these rules - please feel free too. I'd like this topic to be as central a hub for competitive battling here on 'Charms as possible.
