Multiple European Pokémon tournament players harshly penalized over paperwork issues

GN Version 5.0

The people organizing the European Pokémon tournament are proving to be extremely strict with competitor paperwork, as they've pulled a handful of people from participating due to minor mistakes on their sign-up sheets.

For example, one competitor had mistakenly wrote that his Pokemon was holding a Miracle Seed instead of a Meadow Plate. This minor mistake lead to the player losing the ability to use that Pokemon, and also was given a game loss.

It seems that hackers using a Battle Box glitch are why the organization is being so strict with paperwork. They're on the lookout for players using a glitch that lets them change stats, items and moves at any time. When the paperwork discrepancies turn up, swift action is taken, even if it's just a simple transcription mistake.
