force you to follow some strict rules. Here is a description of each rule courtesy of Altomare Latios
- Opponent level rule
All the trainer's Pokémon are on level 50 (or 100). If you have any Pokémon at a higher level, all the trainer's Pokémon will match your highest level.
- All Pokémon Rule restriction
You're allowed only three Pokémon for single battles. Four for double battles.
- Pokémon Level Range (Minimum level - Maximum level)
This rule marks the minimum level and the maximum level of Pokémon you can use. Your Pokémon must be between the range.
- Total Pokémon Level (6-600)
The overall total level your Pokémon must meet. Even if you have a maximum level rule of 100, if this is at 500, then you cannot have six level 100 Pokémon.
- All Pokémon allowed
If this rule is on, you are allowed to use all six of your team. If not then the old Stadium rule applies.

Allows the ability Perish song and Destiny Bond. Both moves are considered unfair on certain occasions (such as when you have two Pokémon, and your opponent has one left).
