14:12: Battle Spot has a special ruleset for VGC. VGC 17 rules are as follows:
Double Battle format is limited to Pokémon that appear in the Alola Region Pokédex (excluding some Legendary and Mythical Pokémon).
Use of Mega Stones is not allowed.
Only Pokémon that can be obtained in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon may be entered.
There is a way to play with QR Rental teams by scanning the QR Codes from their Pokémon Global Link. This allows you to utilise other people's teams but you can't enter certain Rating Battles, but can have Link Battles with these teams
14:12: Global Missions are also to be added to the Global Link. These are shared missions on the Festival Plaza. The first in Late November is "Catch A Lot of Pokémon"
A new system being introduced to the battle time settings is “Your Time.” When using this method of time accounting, players will have a maximum of 60 seconds each turn to select a move or Pokémon, and they will also each be awarded 10 minutes of “Your Time.” Under these rules, if a player runs out of their 10 minutes before the battle ends, that player loses the match. This will mean matches can be decided more quickly than in the past, allowing players to enjoy thrilling battles.
