Championship Points Opportunities for Pokemon VG Players! 12/06/2012

Coming up soon is the 2012 VGCS Winter Battle, a wifi competition similar to the previous Spring Friendly and Autumn Friendly tournaments, but with a big difference; players can earn Championship Points, which go toward being able to compete at the World Championships in Vancouver next summer, while the top finishers can also earn byes at the upcoming Winter Regional Championships in January. You can even get a Custap Berry in your game just for earning a ranking!

The Winter Battle will be one of several wifi competitions lined up for the 2012-2013 Video Game Championships series, giving video game players more chances to become eligible to compete at Worlds. Registration is already open at the Pokemon Global Link (click Competitions to reach the signup page) and will remain open until 6:59 PM EST, December 13th (or until the registration cap of 50,000 entrants is reached, whichever occurs first). The tournament will then begin exactly at 7:00, December 13th, and will end on the 17th.

To earn the Custap Berry item prize in this competition, players must complete at least 10 games and maintain a low disconnect rate. For each of the three age divisions, 128 players from North America, as well as 128 from Europe, will earn Championship Points. The top 16 North American finishers will earn a first-round bye at the next Regionals. If you want to try to earn a high ranking in order to win Championship Points or the award byes, then you will need to battle as often as you can during the competition period!

This competition, like other wifi competitions as well as live competitions, will be using the new Modified format for the Pokemon Video Games, which involves Double Battles only. Players who wish to participate will need a copy of Pokemon Black 2 or Pokemon White 2 (so as to include the new Therian formes of Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus, as well as pokemon with hidden Abilities that can only be obtained using these versions), with a legal team of 6 pokemon and items. You can read more about the new rules and formats for the Video Game here.
