Hey, Trainers!

The 2013-2014 League Cycle begins with Chespin Season on October 21!
October 26 is our first League Session in the Chespin season.

Order your new badge cases NOW!!!
I apologize for the short notice, but if you have been reported as having attended the Humilau Gym season last cycle, you are eligible to order a badge case for the upcoming Chespin season. Please place your badge case order by Saturday, October 12, and set it to be delivered for the Chespin Season in order to get one. We will place orders for the Chespin League kit after that date, which the badge cases on order will also ship out. If you miss out, you will need to wait until you can place an order to be delivered for the Fennekin season. All badge cases are the same and do not take the design of the Pokémon with the corresponding season, so please don’t order your badge case way far out in the cycle!

Leftover Badges/Promo PTCGO Codes are still available.
If you are still looking to earn badges to complete your current badge case and code cards from Opelucid (Legend) and Humilau (Wave) seasons, there are enough left for you to earn by playing TCG/VG matches with your LLs and fellow Leaguers!

B2W2 VG Pokémon Distributions:
-Shiny Giratina – Now thru October 20, 2013 at GameStop
-Torchic w/Blazikenite – October 12, 2013 thru January 15, 2014 via Nintendo Wi-Fi

Pokémon X and Y versions release on October 12, 2013!
Pre-order your game through your favorite store if available. Oh, and make sure you own a Nintendo 3DS/3DSXL/2DS in order to play this game! You can use this opportunity at League to play with others with their version games!

New tournament cycle rules updated!
Check the Library tab to view official rules changes (General Event, TCG, VG Rules and Formats). You will be responsible for following these rules when participating at Sanctioned and Premier Events.

Consider playing in Fall Regionals!
For some of the new players, it’s a great way to get your feet wet in the competitive scene. For you seasoned players, it’s a chance to brush up on your skills, earn Championship Points, and build your way up for an invitation to the 2014 World Championships! Click on the Tournaments tab above for dates and locations. I will update with more events as they become available.

Introducing League Challenges!
League Challenges (formerly Battle Roads) are coming to Leagues near you (possibly here at HV, fingers crossed!). LCs are normally scheduled during the off-season weekends with some flexibility (run in the final week of current season/overlap into first week of new season). Like Regionals, it’s also a Premier Event, but on a much smaller scale. So if this would be your first experience playing in a competitive tourney instead of Regionals, a League setting is the perfect place! You also have chances to earn Championship Points at these events! Be on the lookout for dates under the Tournaments tab.

Worlds 2014 will be held in Washington D.C.!
This is a great opportunity for you to experience the World Championships on the East Coast next year. If you want to play for an invite or see what it’s like or take in the sights and sounds of the area, this news is your first step to plan!

WRAPL is on Facebook!
If you have a Facebook account, and would like to join the group and get League news and updates that way, click here. We’ll gladly accept new members to this group, even if you’re not or no longer from the area! We kindly ask that you please not post spam or any unconfirmed Pokémon rumors/spoilers once accepted.

Let me know if you have any questions!
