    Yes, they are confirmed to be available through distribution, but that distribution is said to be late February. Once it is released in game, the tier check will be updated accordingly.

    Mawilite and Beedrillite are obtainable in game today, and therefore usable in 1v1. (Editted OP accordingly)
    Basically, welcome back one of the top ranked mons, Mega Mawile. (Added back to 1v1 server autoteam)
