Four moves temporarily banned from Pokémon VGC
New rules for the Pokémon Video Game Championships have been published.

Additionally, Championship Series events not operated with or by The Pokémon Company International must be conducted through Festival Plaza until further notice. This is not included in the rule document, but was announced on Pokémon.com in the same announcement. It is also intended to mitigate the same game-disconnecting bug.
