    Why ban the move Dark Void of Darkrai himself is banned? ._.; Seems kinda redundant.
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    Because in past Video Game Championship events, people would use Smeargle with Dark Void. Back then, it wasn't much of a problem, but now that Smeargle has access to the Moody ability, players can use Dark Void to stall for quite some time while waiting for Moody's stat boosts before baton passing.

    Ohh...oh yeah, I forgot about Smeargle. D8; I didn't think people still used him as a lead, I thought that trend went down.

    So Dark Void is banned but Spore isn't? Seems a bit odd.
    Thanks Jo The Marten for the avatar.
    Demons run when a good man goes to war.
    Night will fall and drown the sun,
    when a good man goes to war.
    Friendship dies and true love lies,
    night will fall and the dark will rise,
    when a good man goes to war.
    Demons run, but count the cost.
    The battle's won, but the child is lost.

    Well, Spore only affects 1 target at a time, whereas Dark Void affects 2.

    Ooh yes, this looks like a really-balanced metagame this time around, unlike that horribly-broken 2010 VGC. Looks like my Sandstorm team is gonna come in use :)

    Balanced? Well, with Politoed, Tyranitar and Abomasnow flying around (and to a lesser extent, Ninetales), it's going to be a weather-dominated year, just like 2010 >>
