Pokémon VGC 2017

The official rule list for VGC 2017 has been released on the official site. This confirms much of what has been suspected through Battle Spot but includes a few new tidbits. Below is the list of the rules
Usable Games Pokémon Sun, Pokémon Moon
Battle Type: Double Battle
Pokémon Restrictions: Alola Pokédex only
Banned Pokémon: Cosmog, Cosmoem, Solgaleo, Lunala, Necrozma, Magearna, Pokémon not captured or hatched in Sun & Moon
Banned Items: Mega Stones
Clauses: No same Pokémon, No same item
Players may only use Pokémon with items or moves obtained in Pokémon Sun & Moon. Any moves unable to be obtained without Pokémon only available in the generation through Pokémon Bank are banned until Pokémon Bank opens up
It also institutes a 50 minute timer for the overall match in best-of-three matches. This timer lasts for 50 minutes and all three games are to be completed in this time. If the time elapses and both players have won 1 game, then a Sudden Death game begins where players have three turns to gain a significant advantage and, afterwards, the winner is decided. If no clear winner is visible, then the round will continue until an advantage is seen

Pokémon Comaster - Update

The smartphone game, Pokémon Comaster, has had a new update. This update takes it up to Version 2.0 and adds a variety of features. First there's a new Duel Trial in League Matches where you get more rewards depending on how many people you have played. A new Training Center has also been added to the main screen and the Fusion option has been added to the bottom menu. The game doesn't start with the single player content on screen anymore, but rather the multiplayer with oher content accessible through the menu. Some bug fixes with move mechanics have also been enacted, fixing an issue with how moves with 0 power worked.
