@darthorange: Just signed up. Had to think of a team to use. This one isn't as well crafted or thought out as last season but we'll see how we fair.

I believe Pokebank checks against hacked Pokemon that are not legitimate. For example, a Keldeo with Giga Drain or something. I think that from the way that a Pokemon is generated and stored in memory there is no way to check the legitimacy of a generated Pokemon other than to validate if the bytes line up with what is legal for said Pokemon. So yes, generated Pokemon are a thing and I don't think Nintendo will ever be able to prevent previous generation Pokegen'ed Pokemon from coming over via Bank. They may have added extra measures for Generation 6 but I'm sure that someone will be able to decipher the algorithm that Gamefreak has employed.
@hunter5024: I don't think there is a specific list but an easy way to test is to try and take the legendary onto rated battle spot and see if it's banned or not.
My main question is should we be allowed to use Pokebank legendaries that are legal on rated battle spot? This would include Pokemon such as Heatran, the Kami trio, etc. or are we going to stick with the current policy?
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.
Congratulations @jinx1! So, when do we get to start talking about Season 5? I had a ton of fun my first time through.
Also for those interested in the potential sneak peek of my Season 5 team I recently battled a fairly popular Pokemon Youtuber the other day, shadypenguinn. If you want to watch our battle in real time as he commentates then check out the link here.
@aajf: I should have never went for will-o-wisp early in game 2. I knew your Conkeldurr would come in on it. I think I was subconsciously misplaying to lose because I didn't want to spend another round facing off against Jinx's stall team lol. Which by the way.... Have fun with that :-|
@goranp: aajf and I will be playing on Thursday. So I would assume the finals would be played shortly after that.
