145For our League members who wish to attend premier events as a Video Game player, let’s talk about competitive VG battling!

We here at WRAPL are working on ways to help our local VG players prepare themselves for the competitive arena of live tournaments such as Regionals and Nationals, as well as wifi tournaments like the Winter Battle and International Challenges. While we can’t say whether or not we’ll actually be able to hold sanctioned tournaments, we can at least offer a League Leader challenge to give VG players a chance to earn more points at League. While the specifics haven’t been completely ironed out yet, I can tell you that the rules for the challenge will be derived from the current VG Modified format rules, which are as follows:

  • The battle format will be Double Battle.
  • The Wonder Launcher may not be used.
  • You may use any pokemon in the National Pokedex from 001-649, except for the following pokemon: Mewtwo, Mew, Lugia, Ho-Oh, Chatot, Celebi, Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza, Jirachi, Deoxys, Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, Phione, Manaphy, Darkrai, Shaymin, Arceus, Victini, Reshiram, Zekrom, Kyurem, Keldeo, Meloetta, and Genesect.
  • You may not have two or more pokemon on your team with the same National Pokedex number (ex. you may not have both a Frost Rotom and a Wash Rotom on your team, since both have the same National Pokedex number).
  • Your pokemon may hold items, but they must all be different items. The Soul Dew item may not be held.
  • None of your pokemon may use the moves Dark Void or Sky Drop.
  • Absolutely NO hacking devices (ex. Gameshark, Action Replay) may be used, nor any pokemon or items obtained or modified through hacking. (This same rule also applies to regular League battles; we may not award points earned through battling if you use hacked or modified pokemon. Just for the sake of integrity, please leave your Action Replay at home.)

445While the current Modified format allows only Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 versions, we will allow the use of Pokemon Black and White versions in the League Leader challenge, while our competitive players are still working towards obtaining a copy of Pokemon Black 2 or White 2 in order to be able to attend and compete in sanctioned events.

We will announce the finalized rules on the League Leader VG challenge here on the blog soon. If you have any questions about the rules, please speak to Gryphon during any regular League session. Also see Gryphon if you need help preparing a Modified-legal competitive team, or on getting started with breeding and training strong pokemon for competitions! We will also be posting more articles in the coming months pertaining to VG battling and Championship-level teams.
