PVP RULES, CLAUSES & WHAT IS NEEDED AS EVIDENCE OF VIOLATIONS


  • Here is a clear list of all the PvP Rules and Clauses. These PvP Rules only apply to the Ranked Ladder; thus, when reporting PvP violations, clear evidence that you are in a ranked battle is needed.
    The current rules may be changed or new rules may be added in the future so remember to check this topic from time to time.
    PvP Reports belong in the Report Center.
    The type of evidence required is highlighted in RED. Video evidence is applicable to all infractions, however, for some infractions, only screenshot evidence is required.
    Failure to provide the correct evidence for the violation will result in no action taken.

PvP RULES


  • 1. The use of bugged and uncoded moves, abilities or items, which can be abused in PvP, is disallowed in the Ranked ladder. Screenshot evidence is required. (Sometimes video).
  • 2. All Pokemon with 601+ Base Stats are banned in the Ranked ladder (With the exception of Slaking). Other Uber tier Pokemon (specifically Speed Boost Blaziken (Blaze Blaziken is allowed)) are also banned. You can check the list here. Screenshots evidence is required.
  • 3. Time stalling is forbidden. (Time Stalling =/= Stalling, using repetitive moves is allowed) Video evidence is required.
  • 4. Placing a Status Condition (Poison, Burn, Paralysis, Sleep, Freeze) on your Pokemon before a Ranked battle is prohibited. Video evidence is required.
  • 5. Intentionally boost the rating of another account, in any way, is forbidden, and action will be taken if caught.
  • 6. The use of the abilities Shadow Tag and Arena Trap is prohibited in Ranked PvP. Screenshots evidence is required.
  • 7. You can use only 1 of your own accounts to PvP within each season. Using any account you do not rightfully own, or using more than 1 account, will result in heavy punishment. This rule was temporatily amended to test Alternate Accounts in Ranked Ladder, however, you cannot have more than one account on the Top 25 in the end of season, see here.
  • 8. Forcing players to disconnect from a Ranked Battle with false information will lead to punishment.
  • 9. Unaware Clefable with Soft-Boiled, is banned from ranked play. This is due to the introduction of Hidden Abilities in Gen5 and those moves being removed from the respective Pokemon's movepool in Gen5. Video evidence is required.
  • 10. Only one Rotom form can be used per team.

CLAUSES


  • OHKO Clause: OHKO Moves (Fissure, Guillotine, Horn Drill, and Sheer Cold) are disallowed in the Ranked ladder. Screenshot evidence is required.
  • Species Clause: The same two Pokemon should not be on the same team. Video evidence is required.
  • Sleep Clause: If you have already put a Pokemon on your opponent's side to sleep, and it is still sleeping, you cannot put another one to sleep.
    This rules is not induced by self-sleep inducing moves, such as Rest.
    • Regarding Natural Cure- Two Pokemon can be put to sleep if, and only if, the first Pokemon has Natural Cure (The reverse order would violate the clause as the Natural Cure Pokemon would be on the field asleep with an additional Pokemon being asleep in the party). If you assume a Pokemon has Natural Cure and you are wrong, then you risk being punished for violation.
  • Baton Pass Clause: A Pokemon cannot pass +Speed and another stat simultaneously. You are limited to have only one Baton Pass Pokemon per team.
  • Evasion Clause: A Pokemon may not have +Evasion or -Accuracy moves in its moveset. Using +Evasion moves or -Accuracy reduction moves are forbidden. Screenshot evidence is required.
    • Regarding moves with a chance of accuracy/ evasion effects- All moves with a chance to reduce accuracy or raise evasion are banned from Ranked PvP.
      List of moves banned by this clause:

      Acupressure
      Double Team
      Flash
      Kinesis
      Leaf Tornado
      Minimize

    These categories are based on the loss that can occur to the other party as they have a significant impact in Ranked PvP.

  • Miscellaneous Known Bugs

Glad to have a clear post since the other one was a bit confusing, also happy to see that pvp is taking care of.
I guess what we need the most for an other steps are sweeper items, and some other to bulky ones, but stall already has a huge place in game... :devil:

[post]200311[/post] Focus Punch (do damage in the first turn)
if i can permit, that move is supposed to work like that isn't it?

the move has a negative priority and only hits when the poke using it isn't hit in the same turn :

A -> poke using focus punch ; B -> opposite poke

A is focusing, B hits with anything, A doesn't launch focus punch
A is focusing, B use a statut move, or switch, A launch focus punch

all is happening in the same turn.

i made a few test (sadly i don't have any records software, but someone else could do it) with pokes who outspeed the focus punch user and pokes with less speed, and the move seems to works properly.

[post]200343[/post] Nice rules, but i did not see sleep clauses
And i guess i saw a mistake


Destiny bond doesn't do anything so it belongs to not bannable.
ok, i'm sorry, I always thought destiny bond was a OHKO move.
it is, but it being bugged right now makes it not bannable hence why it's in the 'not yet coded, non bannable' list.
