The council talked about this a bit and there was no real opposition to this, but noone ever got around to posting it after Matt asked one more time and received no opposition and it's been 18 days since then. What is happening? Until the first official Perfect Pokémon Sun/Moon tier list is created, all official Perfect Pokémon tournaments, gyms and ladders will follow the official Smogon banlist. This is the ruleset that is followed on Smogon's official simulator (Pokémon Showdown!), and the specifics of every tier can be viewed using the links below as well as the tier lists being viewable in Pokémon Showdown!'s teambuilder. Anything Goes, Uber, OU, BL, UU, BL2, RU, BL3, NU, BL4, PU, Doubles Uber, Doubles OU, Doubles UU The following metagames are not playable: BL, BL2, BL3, BL4 I'd write you a changelog but that'd probably take me an hour and I've not got the time/patience for that so just try and learn where everything sits. Please note that NFE is excluded from this change, and the metagame will become a separate entity with it's own banlist (when something is banned from NFE, instead of going to PU they will now go to NFE Ubers--which will create a new format in which all NFEs are legal for use--and the tier will be broken from the main sequence of tiers). When is it happening? For official tournaments, this will be implemented after King of the Ring III has finished (please take note of this @AceBreeder-Brock) and will continue to be the case until the first official tier list is implemented. For the wifi battle ladder, this will take effect immediately. I will personally update any links in the current season thread (once I've found it, that is), but @doulie for any future rounds of the PP ladder can you please use the links above. Edit: I couldn't find it if there are any so could you deal with this Doulie 'cause you know where all this stuff is. Thanks. For gyms, this will take effect immediately. Why is this thread open? I have left this thread open so that any queries about the change can be resolved in the thread. That said, we do not plan on reversing this change. Any posts saying that the change should be reversed or anything along similar lines (I will leave this to moderator discretion) will be deleted and the user who posted said message will receive a 1 point infraction because we do not want to have to deal with people being rebellious in this thread.
