    I don't know to be quite frankly honest. I'm not entering a Kyurem myself, but there are no bans so I'm not sure why Zyon couldn't use their Kyuem-B. My only thought is because it's technically two Pokemon together, but that really didn't stop it from the Rotation battle.

    yep they are the same pokemon, so you gotta choose one.

    Oh no, you misread my post, Zyon was only using Kyurem-B but it wouldn't allow him to register it

    Ehhhh...I might as well give this a shot. I have an idea of what team I'd be using (which requires some more thought given that this is a singles tourney), but I'll need to iron out some kinks first. At least I'm prepared for the dreaded level 1 Aron this time.

    Something better have been off, or simply put it's forms are banned in this competition. I do want to know however before I claim that, has anyone else even tried registering either Kyurem-B, Kyurem-W and received the same error? If other's have the same problem I'll feel better about the situation but just a little ticked they didn't mention it's forms being banned before hand. An besides I don't use any hacking device/program to modify my team or game in anyway. I don't even use GTS or negotiations much because I can't tell if that pokemon is truly legit or not.

    Btw I did try registering my team as soon as the competition opened. Just thinking on the top of my head, but is it possible so many people could have tried registering at the same time creating an error or something preventing people(such as myself) from registering their team?

        Spoiler:- Again, if you want you can check Kyurem's info.:

    Actually it's Pokemon in the Black 2 and White 2 Pokedex. Things like Aron, Ditto, Metagross, Tyranitar, etc can enter because they are in it

    Speaking of aron, I've been using a headsmash/automotize set for my aggron.The fear of metal burst to give me time to set up quite a bit often (thing was beautiful int he rotations toureny to set up on outrages and ice moves, 4-0'd a couple alone) not sure how it'll fare in singles. Question is should I actually pull the metal burst/custap set out w endaevour? Course then one could ask why not just troll with an aron.

    2 days.

    edit: bleh, fighting starts tomorrow and I realize I ahve a glaring weakness to landorus. Bleh.

    Bleh...my next planned team was originally going to be a Ground-type team to reference Earth Day (due to my forgetting about it in the previous tourney), but since that's not really going to work here, I'll have to save it for the June International Challenge.

    I have no idea how singles work competitively, so let's just see how this team does.

    This is a team that I patched up real quickly with only one day to spare. Even worse considering most of my standard Pokemon are not even in the New Unova Dex, requiring me to set up a new team very quickly. I have not yet understood the characteristics of my team yet.

    Message: I'll show you my BAD MATCHUP strategy!
    Team: Darmanitan, Vaporeon, Excadrill, Mamoswine, Hydreigon, Ferrothorn
    Nicknames (in order): This time, I have no nicknames for any of them. I was intending to name Mamoswine after Dawn's Mamoswine, but stopped after realizing she didn't nickname her Mamoswine either.

    I am still deciding between which is the last Pokemon to use. The idea is to have every base covered, with specific interest to Thunderus (specifically why I broke my routine of not using Ice-types in favor of Mamo). However, this would leave my team open to Water-types, especially bulky Water-types (Half the team, in fact). I could use Serperior/Ferrothorn, but both have a glaring Fire-type weakness that is not helped by the presence of Excadrill, which is also weak to fire (Thank Arceus for Thick Fat Mamoswines). If I decide to use Jolteon instead, I will end up with half the team with a cripping weakness to Ground-types. I just can't win here.

    EDIT: I chose Ferrothorn as a counterbalance against Trick-Roomers and as an entry-hazard setter. Also to annoy the hell out of Water-type users.

    Got my team prepared, but I'm actually thinking I should figure out a way to stop Aron (who may or may not actually be used due to Single battles) :P

    Brilliant I can't register at the moment. Because I lost power during a random match up after the last tournament its still coming up with the Hour Ban message!!
    I've saved and am leaving it for an hour then trying again, I really hope it is just a glitch because if I can't get in then I'm worried it's not going to let me participate in the UK VGC in June if it does the same thing!!!
    Anybody else had this before? Could it be because I've changed the DS I'm using as well?

    I've had that type of trouble switching the DS... it shouldn't be permanent and I'm almost certain it can't effect your VGC registration.

    Managed to register but had to go back to the old DS. Once the hour had passed it let me in but said if I registered with this DS it would erase my Pal Pad, all Rating Match data for the current season and cancel my participation in this tournament!!!
    Oh well just do this tournament then swap DS's ready for the VGC and the June International Challenge

    Yes, won my first battle against a guy named RAFAEL from Guatamala. Luckily their Tyranitar and Lucario are weaker than my Tyranitar and Lucario.

    So far I'm having a good run winning my first two battles. I nearly forgot I could start battling tonight, thinking I actually had to wait for the 17th to start participating.
    Both Scrafty and Volcarona have sealed my victories I'm gonna keep on battling throughout the night.

    Good Lucky everybody, an have fun

    Hey all. I might fill out the form tomorrow if I get time but if anyone sees a 'David' or 'Hikari' from Scotland, UK and have Servine/Glaceon/Liepard/etc. That's probably us (me and my fiancee who I might get to post tomorrow lol).

    Just incase anyone here sees us. hope everyone has fun with the spring friendly.
