Rules regarding SV Spoilers

Upon release
, all new game content spoilers are fair game within Pokemon Scarlet and Violet forum.
You may discuss spoilers outside of this subforum, but they must be hidden using the forum's native spoiler features and labeled as such for the awareness of your fellow users.

After 1 week, you may discuss mechanical aspects of the game freely outside of this forum unspoilered. Mechanical aspects include but are not limited to: new items, new Pokemon, new moves and the like.

6 weeks post-release of new content, no spoilers will be gated and you are allowed to talk about them freely elsewhere within the forum. Happy exploring!

Three Strike System
In short, it's a system we've put in place for repeat rule breakers. These "strikes" are broken rules - 1 strike equals a warning, 2 equals a 2-day threadban, and so on. For more information, see this post.
