I can't help but think that someone's going to use Hoopa because it's not specifically mentioned in the rules. (If Miiverse is any indication, people do have Hoopa, and some people think it isn't hacked.)

From what I've heard, hacking Gen VI to have specific Pokemon is very difficult to the point where the creator of the PokeGen tool quit entirely. You can never underestimate a hacker's will, though.

"No Xerneas, Yveltal, or Diancie"
*sudden Hoopa and Volcanion sets emerge*

Modifying your game with an external device, or having a Pokemon obtained using an external device, is against the rules too.

I know that. Hence the last bit at the end "and some people think it isn't hacked".

Really disappointed that my massive-ass state only had one regional tournament and it already finished yet California gets to have two with one finished this past October and another one taking place in February 2015. Guess that gives me enough time for the end of 2015, assuming they have it in my state.

Best rule set ever.

And good luck trying to get into real play with Hoopa or Volcanion, since they are both unreleased.
