Pikachu has a pre-evolution so it can't be used, the tourney time is listed on the post and it happens on the server, people will generally tp to you but some may also ask you to tp, the timezone tourneys are done in is EST.
How do you change the ban list a day before a tourney? A week would be okay but a day? We know you dont have problems "breeding" your pokemons, but breeding for a normal player and for this specific tourney is a nightmare . Just revert it back to be fair for everyone
It’s especially good for people who build their teams weeks in advance knowing they wouldn’t be on till the tourney and are now out a team member (2 if you count Gamewiz’s flight delays holding another one hostage XD)
