    For any competitive Pokemon Trainers, the new VGC format for 2016 has now been revealed.

    The details being:

    :arrow: Source

    The ability to select up to two of the main legendaries is going to seriously change the whole metagame, especially use of Primal Kyogre/Groudon and Mega Rayquaza.
    What are your thoughts? :)
     
  2. Phione is banned? O.o lol
    It's so weak though.

    I've always wondered this myself to be honest, but they're rigid on their "Mythical Pokemon" category I guess

    tail glow, batons pass, focus sash, you can pull too many shenanigans.
     
  6. Phione does not get Tail Glow. In fact, it doesn't even get Baton Pass :P

    If that counts, Volbeat can get Tail Glow and Baton Pass. Wouldn't really be worth sacrificing one whole team slot for a trash Pokémon that would only serve to Tail Glow once and then Baton Pass.

    This current format is actually tilting me, worse than 15's did.

    Which is weird, I never thought it could happen
