    I believe SKY DROP and DARK VOID are banned.

    Here's a snippet from the official 2012 VGC RULES AND REGULATIONS.

    Pokémon Organized Play supports several tournament formats for sanctioned play of the Pokémon video
    games. This document covers each of the approved formats and their variations. Tournaments that do not use
    one of the formats described here may not be sanctioned.
    5.** Standard Format Style
    All sanctioned Pokémon video game tournaments require players to assemble a team of Pokémon, with items,
    prior to the start of the event. The standard format style for all PLAY! Pokémon tournaments is Double Battle.**
    5.1. Double Battle
    In Double Battles, each player selects four Pokémon from his or her party of six to battle with. At the
    start of the battle, players send out the first two Pokémon in their party, making a total of four Pokémon
    on the battlefield. Game play continues until a player knocks out all four of his or her opponent’s
    Pokémon.
    6.** Standard Team Construction Rules
    When building a team for a PLAY! Pokémon tournament, all players must adhere to these standard construction
    rules.
     A player’s team cannot contain two Pokémon with the same Pokédex number
     Each Pokémon on a player’s team can hold an item, though no two Pokémon may hold the same item
     A player’s team cannot contain two Pokémon with the same nickname
     A player’s team cannot contain a Pokémon nicknamed with the name of another Pokémon (for example,
    an Unfezant named “Pidove”)
     Pokémon may only use moves that have been learned through one of the following methods:
    o By leveling up
    o By TM or HM
    o As an Egg move, through breeding
    o From a character in the game
    o A move already known by a Pokémon received at an official Pokémon event or promotion
    7. Sanctioned Format
    Pokémon Organized Play supports one format for sanctioned play: Modified. Sanctioned events are listed on the
    POP website, and the results are reported to POP after the event concludes.
    7.1. Modified Format
    The Modified format is the standard tournament format for PLAY! Pokémon video game events. This
    format will be used at all premier events unless specified otherwise. The Modified format for the 2011–
    2012 season will use the following restrictions:12

     Pokémon must be placed in the Battle Box.
     Pokémon above level 50 are permitted, but they are auto‐leveled down to 50 for the duration of
    battle.
     Players may use Pokémon with Hidden Abilities that have been officially released via Pokémon
    Black Version and Pokémon White Version, the Pokémon Global Link, or an official event or
    promotion.

    So I have a DW Nidoran♂, and I want to know if I can breed it's ability to a baby without a DW Nidoran♀. Do I need her to pass on the ability, and if so, does the egg hatch into Nidoran♀/♂ at random?

    The female can only pass down the ability.

    Like what Larry said, you need a female to pass down DW ability, because only females can do so.

    In addition to that, yes the egg will hatch into Nidoran♀/♂ at random.

    Double Team, OHKO moves and BrightPowder are not banned. This is an official Nintendo competition. It doesn't go by smogon rules.

    The only things that are banned are non-Unova Pokemon, Victini, Reshiram, Zekrom, Kyurem, Keldeo, Meloetta, Genesect and the move Sky Drop.

    I thought Smogon rules were official Nintendo rules &, I'm sorry for asking but just out of curiosity, if they're not official Nintendo rules, why do people follow them?

    Number one, without a general set of rules for the fan community rules would end up confusing to organize. Number two, Smogon the best competitive battling site. So just add them together and we basically use Smogon's rules near-everywhere.

    An old lady in the gate next to the bridge tells you about a girl that used to play with an Abra in that area before the bridge was built. So it's either the girl's ghost, an apparition of the girl, or if the bridge is as young as I'm supposing, probably the girl herself teleporting away with her Abra.

    Usually the color changes because it detects that you're slightly too far from the source of the Wi-Fi (your router, or the nearest free Wi-Fi area) thus weakening the connection strength.
    Green means it's a powerful connection, red means it's weaker.

    Sometimes, turning on the C-Gear also causes the same thing to happen, it's still trying to detect the connection, hence red flashes instead of green.

    Pokemon tournament rules are different than Competitive rules. Check the pokemon global link website for their official rules

    Hey, is the tournament over wi-fi or at a certain place? Also, I need to find TM ice beam, I know it's in the pit where Kyurem is, but where exactly.

    Same thing happened when I changed to my 3DS. Just ignore the red, it should work the same.

    Just look around the forest area. The exact location eludes me, but that's around where it is. Tournament is over Wifi.

    Shouldn't Arceus' forms be registered in the Pokedex as well?
    Cause when I give him plates, it doesn't say in my Pokedex I've seen any other form of his besides his normal form.

    Then it doesn't have the other forms registerable. Really, I don't need 17 recolors in my Pokedex.

    ...Well let's take a guess here, you either get Wi-Fi, or you don't participate in the tournament.

    Would making near flawless pokemon flawless using an AR be considered cheating? also would changing flawless in to near flawless so they could have certian HP be consider cheating too. I don't do this but I was wondering if I could because to RNG you to use an emulator.
