@jjor64: The moves that we rules out are specifically moves that raise your evasion stat. So no moves like Double Team or Minimize. Protect and Substitute are a-ok.

Do we have any desire at all to try out Smogon tiers? I've been enjoying myself in the UU tier lately. Additionally, I think it would be fun to play with some pokebank legendaries within reason. Lastly, did you guys see that Genesect and Lucarionite are now considered "uber" by Smogon. Maybe we remove Mega Lucario from teams since we pretty much adhere to no Mega Kangaskan, Mega Gengar, or Mega Blaziken.
@fragor87: I think you're gonna find a lot of resistance to Smogon tiers here. We've been pretty against restrictions that they come up with and it's worked pretty well so far. Unless people suddenly want to start to adhere to strict rulesets, I'm personally against it. We didn't actually ban use of Mega-Khan, Gengar, and Blaziken, no one seems to use them. People have used them in the past, but no one had a problem dealing with them. Whether or not Lucario is broken or not is up to everyone else, since I have never dealt with one.
Plus, cookie cutter teams are no fun.
Personally I prefer not to use Smogon tiers. I also use Mega Lucario though, so I'm biased. As far as rule changes go I think we've got pretty solid ones right now. The only thing that comes to mind is trying to implement something for those time outs.
Now that the bank is officially launched the next tournament should be pretty interesting, though after that one I think it would be best if we started changing things up more between seasons. I'd like to do an anything goes tournament sometime.
I think it would be cool to use the legal legendaries, but the reason I don't use them anyway is because none of mine have anywhere near perfect stats. It's incredibly easy to breed perfect stats to any pokemon, but legendaries are still the luck of the draw. So to me it seems unfair if two people are using the same legendary, but one person got a better IV roll on theirs or hacked perfect IV's and transferred it up, and they just win simply by having the superior one. I don't know, I'm probably gonna end up sitting the next tournament out so you guys can feel free to ignore me if you disagree.
I think a blanket no legionaries rule is good although I will probably be eliminated just as quickly either way.
Also I think allowing any legionary in a future season would be fun. I want to be able to let my Xerneas run wild and battle (and probably lose) to other legends.
The legendarys I have are regirock, regice, cobalion, terrakion, virizion, , cresselia, , thundurus, tornadus, landorus therian forme, tornadus therian forme, , latias, azelf, mesprit, uxie, heatran, , The ones underlined are banned from the battle maison. Seems arbitrary really. They ban most event pokemon and the mewtwos of each generation and allow the trios to run wild.
Yeah, it does seem kind of weird. Especially since some of the unbanned ones are a lot stronger than non legendaries. Also, I'm pretty sure the Battle Tower style places allow Latios and Latias, but not Soul Dew. I've never tried it, but that's what I heard, I think.
