Indeed, the competitive landscape of Pokémon is something scrambled in south korea. Here we bring you all the details that we have been able to know today about it.
After the initial report of the controversy, now we have news on the subject. The news comes after the cancellation of an official tournament in the country due to a protest by the finalists, who had planned to use only the move. Metronomeand that would have led to completely random battles.
Pokémon Korea described this action as a “prohibited act” and many fans protested about it. Well then, this has now been confirmed:
The organizers have claimed that the finalists planned to use “Illegally Modified Pokémon”. The final four were banned indefinitely from Korean competitive play. NashVGC, one of the finalists, has responded by saying that this ban is retaliation for the protest and discourages players from fighting back in the future.
