VGC 2015

VGC 2015 rules have been released, including its own format! VGC 2014 will coexist with the new format until the season ends (December 31st!), so you guys can still duke it out in 2014's format until then. VGC 2015's rules are very similar to flat double battle rules; most 600+ BST legendaries and the Soul Dew are banned. Check it out, and head over to the VGC room for dedicated tournaments and discussion!

Trivia Script

Thanks to Morfent's hard work, the Trivia room now has a script! Featuring three different modes of gameplay, everyone is welcome to answer questions, join games, and climb up the trivia leaderboard. Subjects for questions range from pop culture to Pokemon to academic subjects. Enjoy!
