Pokémon VGC Rule Set for 2019 Announced

The rule set for the 2019 VGC season has been announced. The rules will be GS Cup based, similar to the 2010 and 2016 VGC seasons. The games used will be Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, and the use of two Legendary Pokémon (excluding the Mythical Pokémon like Mew, Jirachi, Victini) per team will be allowed.

To add a twist to the season, it will be divided into three parts using a slightly different rule set for each part.

  • Z-Crystals and Mega Stones are not permitted.
