    GSC UU:
    All Pokémon not listed in tiers above are allowed.

    GSC NU:
    GSC NU is not playable on the main PO server. However, this list of Banned Pokemon has been provided so users can play the tier if they so wish.

    Banned Pokémon: Ampharos, Arcanine, Bellossom, Blastoise, Chansey, Crobat, Dodrio, Electabuzz, Electrode, Feraligatr, Flareon, Girafarig, Gligar, Golduck, Granbull, Gyarados, Hitmonlee, Hypno, Jumpluff, Kabutops, Kadabra, Lanturn, Magmar, Magneton, Nidoqueen, Ninetales, Omastar, Piloswine, Pinsir, Politoed, Poliwrath, Primeape, Quagsire, Qwilfish, Raichu, Sandslash, Scyther, Slowbro, Slowking, Victreebel, Vileplume, Weezing, Wigglytuff

    GSC LC:
    Only Pokémon that have not yet evolved but are capable of evolution are allowed in this tier.

    Banned Moves: Dragon Rage, Sonic Boom

    Additional Notes:
    Hidden Power Legendaries were banned on NetBattle, but that was mostly due to the fact that the RNG could not be cracked back then. As seeing how we've cracked the RNG for all the modern games, GSC should be a piece of cake. This is why we have decided not to implement the ban.

    If you believe HP Legends should be banned on the basis of other criteria, then feel free to start a discussion thread in the Past Gens Discussion forum.

    Thanks go to borat for the OU/UU list.
