I just want to know what's illegal when playing someone before I actually battle anyone.

TIER CLAUSE:

Use Pokemon from the equal or lesser tier that you're battling within.


SPECIES CLAUSE:

No two Pokemon of the same Species are allowed (No Lucario Armies, sorry).


NFE CLAUSE:

Pokemon that aren't fully evolved are banned.


SLEEP CLAUSE:

Only one Pokemon may be put to sleep at a time.


ITEM CLAUSE:

No two Pokemon may have the same item.


ONE-HIT KO CLAUSE:

No One-hit KO moves are allowed (Sheer Cold, Horn Drill, etc.).


EVASION CLAUSE:

No Double Team or Minimize.


"HAX" ITEMS ARE BANNED:

No Brightpowder, Quick Claw, Focus Band, or King's Rock.


SELF-KO CLAUSE:

If both players have one Pokemon left, and one uses Explosion, KO'ing both Pokemon, the user of Explosion loses.


FREEZE CLAUSE:

Same as the Sleep Clause, except with Freeze.

These are some common ones, so just ask your opponent what clauses they want to use, and battle accordingly. Always organize a battle on Wi-Fi before you just run into it. Otherwise, you'll probably do something illegal. =]
