Scrapple from the WRAPL: Aug-Sept-Oct Edition 08/20/2012

After the Legend Badge season ends on the 25th of August, there will be 2 months where the League will be out of season, until the upcoming Aspertia Gym season begins on October 22nd. Between now and then, of course, there will still be League sessions, with plenty of promo cards and badges for players to earn. However, there will be a whole lot more going on as the new 2012-2013 Championship Series starts up.

  • There will be Battle Road tournaments in Georgia all throughout the month of September. Details on these events will be added in a later post.
  • The Keldeo download event begins on August 27th. This event is exclusive to GameStop stores, and will require a visit to a local GameStop to participate. The event ends on October 6th.
  • Pokemon versions Black 2 and White 2 will be released on October 7th for Nintendo DS. Trading the Keldeo you downloaded from GameStop over to this game will allow you to unlock its Resolute Forme in a special area close to the starting point of the game.
  • Pokemon Dream Radar, an app for the Nintendo 3DS available through the 3DS Shop, will also be released on October 7th. This app allows you to find and capture pokemon with hidden (Dream World) abilities using augmented reality (similar to FaceRaiders) and gives you the option to send these pokemon to your Black2/White2 game. It is also the only available means of obtaining Thundurus, Tornadus, and Landorus in their Therian Formes.

The local League will also be working on organizing more tournaments for October and later in the year. Stay tuned for updates!
