Generation 7 has also introduced a plethora of new game mechanics. Expect Eevee's Z-move (boosts all stats to +2) and Type: Null (has extremely high base stats for LC) to be quick banned, but they will probably be allowed for at least a day or two. Edit: Type: Null can't be obtained at level 5, so it can't be used in LC anyway. Edit 2: Eevium Z was quickbanned. Edit 3: Conversion and Murkrow were quickbanned. Edit 4: Cutiefly and Misdreavus were suspected and banned. Edit 5: Meditite was suspected and banned.
