    Holy Mary, a lot has happened over christmas

    No.1: Could somone post an official link to showdown, I have never used it, nor heard of it until this thread I assume its just a website you can battle on? So have no issue if thats the case.
    No.2: Completely am for the anti sleep/ evasion stuff, usually I dont like the idea of banning stuff as its part of the game (whether we like it or not) but its too eaily abused, and lets face it pokemon as a competitive game is kind of unbalanced and broken anyway so it needs extra regulation in my opinion.
    No.3: Kalos only pokemon is kind of limiting, but I understand that it forces us all to use the new pokes in creative ways, so I like that the limitation will force innovation. Im just curoius though out of all the new Kalos pokes, how many are final evolutions? Eg: If somone wants malamar on their team then inkay is also off the list. How many of the #650-#715 pokemon are final evolutions?
    No.4: In order to attract more battlers maybe a new thread/section should be created, as I initially missed this thread as it seems to be buried deep within the pokemon league category. Maybe a section called Pokefarm Battles or somthing so new members and old see a dedicated section, it might garner more activity. I dunno

    Excited for this, but as its Christmas I would expect delays with the draught etc ;D

    Hope everyone had a great Christmas, and that santa brought them what they wanted

    I select Goodra.
    Slimjim367 is now on the clock.


    To answer some of Donnie boy's question, yes Inkay would be usable if Malamar is selected. The idea behind this Kalos only #650-715 is not to limit, but to explore the new options we have been given. The reason for the draft is to force teams to not be cookie cutter like we see on most wi-fi battles. Earlier this year, or was it last year, when I did the PGL challenges I saw that about 80-90% of the teams I faced in the doubles challenged had 2-3 of the same exact Pokémon. That is a high number when teams consisted of only 4 Pokémon that the bulk of teams were the same.

    The teams that were different were well thought out and usually did well, unless you could figure them out. This is a chance to learn new tricks and see how to get the most out of trying new things. A chance to explore and not just open a page on Smogon and see what the top 10 Pokémon used last month were.
