EDIT/UPDATE: Going to be at the JAA finals? Post in the JAA Finals Meet-Up Thread (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=128355) so we can figure out who's coming, and where we should all meet up. Hope to see you there! -TRJ

There are so many threads on this, so lets make it into one!

For those that dont know, JAA is basically a huge event where you can partipate in a battle tournament against other fans and download the "Top 20" pokemon including the infamous Celebi. And other various activites and entertainment of course. The event has been travelling around the U.S. as it visits cities such as Memphis.

If you have any questions about the event, heres the perfect place to ask. Trying to find which one people on the forum are going to? Ask here.

Basic info can be found on www.pokemon.com


Ill be there in July when it comes to Long Island at Roosevelt Field Mall. =)

Does anyone know when it's coming to Miami/Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood, Florida, US? or whether it's already been and gone? I live in South Florida and want to know if I already missed it or what.

Also, I have a question: how many of the top 20 Pokemon can be downloaded in each cart? Just wondering.

I see based on the calendar the following are left:

07/01/2006 - Raleigh, NC (Saturday)
07/08/2006 - Washington, DC (Saturday)
07/12/2006 - Philadelphia, PA (Wednesday)
07/15/2006 - Boston, MA (Saturday)
07/22/2006 - New York, NY (Saturday)
07/23/2006 - Nintendo World (New York, Sunday)

I am a qualified alternate for the one in Boston so I intend to make the trip there. While New York is closer, I'd rather assure that no last-minute plans shall derail my opportunity for another pokemon towards completing my pokedex.

I guess I'm doomed to be Celebi-less.

I'll also be at the Roosevelt Field Mall on the 22nd! I desperately hope someone will be willing to trade a Zangoose, as it's the one monster in Hoenn I don't have. Maybe for a Kyogre or a shiny Zigzagoon? Judging from the shiny threads, everyone and their baby cousin has one of those but like I said, I'm desperate... You can PM me for the exact details if you're serious about trading.

24th June 2006, 8:36 PM
I just did the test, no quiz, and qualified for the Roosevelt Field Mall NY. I think the quiz for 12 and under is different from the test for 13+. All of the questions were the following: What type are Torchic, Mudkip, Treecko, Pikachu etc. Very lol-some. I'm 12 :)

24th June 2006, 10:28 PM
I qualified for the Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City NY tournament earlier today. I'm going to go kick some ***! I know two other people who are going, so I'll have some competition. My one friend plans on EV training his Pokemon then using Action Replay to level up his Pokemon with rare candies to 100! I mean is that cheap or is that cheap? I'm going to have to bring Mewtwo since my friend is also planning on bringing a team of Legendaries. I also plan on downloading Celebi (althought I'd honestly rather prefer Mew) and the Top 20. I'm basically going for the tournament, meeting new people, & getting the Pokemon downloads. Anyone else here going on the 22nd besides me? If you wanna say "hey", feel free. My picture is in my MySpace link below in the sig, so you'll recognize who I am if you see me there.

Hope to see ya there.

From what I understand, yes.

It looks like I'll be going to the one in Boston even though I'm a qualified alternative there while am a qualified participant for the one in Long Island the following week as well. I'd rather get the celebi in all my games along with the rarest pokemon from the top 20 at least. Does anybody know if the top 20 pokemon are given selectively or random? my first choice if I had one would either be suicune, latios or latias.

EE: NO!!! They don't allow use of all pokemon. You can use any pokes except Jirachi, Deoxys, Mew and Celebi. (So, you can use MOST ubers).

Also, you get to chose which of the Top 20 you want...they aren't randomly chosen.

Expert Evan
26th June 2006, 6:40 PM
Here are the top 20:

Pokemaniac77

but with shell bell you have to do damage. thats really hard considering wobb only gets 4 moves unless bred. Even then im not sure if it gets attacks.

what you are telling me is that I cannot use a wobbuffet and also no pokemon with leftovers attached?

27th June 2006, 9:58 PM
I can easily imagine someone going all the way to the top with Brightpowder and Double Teaming mon if Wobbuffet with Leftovers and the Nintendo Special events Pokémon are the only formal restrictions.


Anyway, has anyone heard anything about anyone getting a shiny Celebi from JAA yet? I'm sure they've given out at least 8000 by now, so if we haven't seen anything yet, we just missed it, the USA as a whole is very unlucky, or it's set up to be impossible? :(

Man, am sick for a few days and I miss a whole thread. O_o

I'll be at the DC one, and hopefully will be able to make it to the finals in NYC--I won't be playing in either one, I just didn't have the time or energy to put a team together, but I'm going to the former to get Celebi, etc, and to the latter to hopefully meet some Serebii people. XD

You will hopefully notice me by my shirt--it'll be a white t-shirt, with a big red Team Rocket "R" on the front, and my username on the back.

EDIT: Also, does anyone have the date/location of the finals in NYC? I'm assuming it will be posted on pokemon.com after the last of the JAAs, but I'm also assuming the winners know the info already... >>;;

I'm looking forward to what I'll see when I attend the one in Boston in just a little over 2 weeks. I think a few in this thread mentioned they'd attend this one. So long as I can get celebi along with good fortune with the top 20 I should be satisfied. I'll give the video tournament a shot but hope to just have fun at least.

Here are some of the things I wonder about before going to Boston in a little over 2 weeks:

1. What is the limit as to what we can download from the Top 20 outside of celebi?

2. What are the chances that an alternate qualifier for the video tournament can participate? I am also a qualified participant at Long Island but if I go to Boston, I may skip Long Island, so one lucky alternate could take my place there.

3. Being this is my first Nintendo event I'll ever attend, I wonder what are the chances I might be able to get any other mystery gifts or even a deoxys?

If I saw this thread correctly, I noticed nightcat will also be in Boston, wonder whom else...

Pokemaniac77

amulekbird
29th June 2006, 3:33 AM
EE,

1. You can download as many of the top 20 as you want (I think I got 30-ish total)

2. I was an alternate qualifier. I played. I even won a couple matches before I lost to the second place finisher.

3. You'll only get deoxys if you find someone with it. Good luck. I had to go to Houston to get my Deoxii (6 of them...maybe you can have one when wifi comes o.O)

Expert Evan
29th June 2006, 4:53 PM
Interesting we can get all 20 though I might only care about 8 of them at least.

I was also wondering if we are set with the same 6 in party for the video tournament or can we switch which pokemon we can use before the next battle.

Baburu Zenigame
29th June 2006, 5:13 PM
I went to the California one( LA), though I haven't particapated in the tournament.

No, I guess swiching isn't aloud. Then I guess it would make the whole tournament confusing and unfair.

Levski
29th June 2006, 8:08 PM
I plan on doing the same too. I'll bring 5 or 6 games, depending on whether a friend gives me one of his cartridges. I also have a fake game. Does anyone know if it is possible to get Celebi and the Top Twenty on a fake cartridge?

amulekbird

At Boston, I will also be bringing with me some L5 chikoritas and totodiles from my recent breedings.

I plan to do that too, but for the "DC" location (I quote DC because it's really in Bethesda MD, not DC). If anyone has any requests, please let me know soon as it's only a week away. I'm mostly looking for a Feebas, but I'd love a Deoxys if I can manage it.

I also have Pokemon Box, so if anyone wants those Pokemon, that's fine too.

Edit: Oh yeah, I can also trade a Pokemon that has Pokerus on it. Considering that's highly sought out by the EV trainers and it's extremely rare, this is probably a worthwhile thing for people. I'll spread it around to something random, like some Zigzagoons or Magikarps, I think.

On a side note, I will be able to trade Feebas' to anyone that wants one.

they'll be downloading the entire time. they might close the line tho just so they aren't there for hours after it ends. i picked suicune, Dragonite, Entei (dex reasons), and typhlosion (dex reasons). but really, it's all a matter of opinion. and for the line, i suggest bringing a wireless connecter and going in the union room and battle someone, that's what i did, it helped pass the time... alot.

Would they close the line before participants of the tournament get a chance to download? cause if you get into the last battle in the tournament, that could take a while, im worried that they'll close the line before i can get my pokemon.

No, they won't. The line dosen't take to long if you battle. I had a multi battkle with a partner and whooped the opponent, one 1 o 1 in a rmatch, and my Kyogre beat an 18year old's Lanturn.

well, you're in the 12 and under so you'll definetly have time. remember, they still have the 13 and up compitition to do, you'll be fine. go and compete and when you're done you can go and download. you'll have time, don't worry about it. they do the age groups at different times, if that's what you're worried about, 12 and under first, then 13 and up.

I just came back from the JAA an hour and a half ago. Man, I didn't realize that there were actual BABES (hot ones too!! :D) doing the Celebi downloads. I was going to say, "Hey, stop playing with that D-Pad and have a go at my joystick." XD

Erhm, I got 3 Celebi from downloading. You just need a stamp in order to download Pokémon. That's what the lines are for - stamps. I showed all these little kids my Shining Milotic and they were all fussing at what I had. I also showed them my Deoxys, Lugia, Ho-oh and Mew (all legits - used Island Warp codes and obtained them at their destined areas; Navel Rock, Birth Island, Faraway Island...).

One of the reps looked at my sharked Pokémon (not knowing they were since they were obtained in their original areas) and said they were fine for the tournaments and seeing that they were 'officially obtained' (only looked at Lugia and Ho-oh; said those two were fine). I came in 5th place -_- Beaten by a 14 year old...wtf and I'm 18.

I'm guessing there's not, but I want to know ahead of time, so I don't go all the way there for nothing. Also, When you get the top 20 Pokemon, are you allowed to pick one more than once? Finally, lets say I go into the union room while standing in line, and I battle a trainer with a hacked game. Does it negatively affect my game in any way? Well, that's all for now, so any answers are grately appreciated. Thanks in advance!

There is no admission fee.

You can definitely get multiples if you have different game carts with you. I think you can download multiples onto the same cart, too, but I didn't try it.

Battling a hacked game won't adversely affect your game, but trading with one might.

To get a good nature for battling
Someone got 12 Celebis on one cart. He continously went back in line. After getting 4 IIRC, the lady got mad and threatens to call the boss. The guy (FiveKRunner IIRC) just boldly said "Go ahead". So the lady called the boss. The boss came and said he could have as many Celebis as he wants.

Really, I don't think Nintendo should limit people if they're willing to spend their time getting in line over and over. They already made it so we can't catch Celebi in-game and are forcing us to go to this Nintendo event to get one. I think it's reasonable that someone should be allowed to get as many as they want (providing they follow the rules and get in line) and give them to friends and such.

I wonder how likely it'll be for me to find someone who will trade me a Deoxys and/or a Feebas...

Okay, you guys want to know how the tournament is set up? All the qualified people to enter the tournament are given blue Pokemon shirts for the JAA tournament of 2006. They have booths set up with Pokemon XD and you are selected to go against people. You use your OWN Pokemon, however, but people are randomly chosen to go against one another, like the anime and like SSBM. After the final winner is there, they are told when the finals are taking place in NYC. Out of those finalists, the Pokemon JAA Champion is chosen in NYC.

I just got a JAA Celebi from one of my friends who went to the SLC, UT Fassion Place Mall JAA event. Apparently it's hidden power is Grass (Power: 70), and it has near perfect stats.

Yes it's legit, otherwise collesium and XD wouldnt have allowed me to register it.

How many Lugia's do you have Vampiric Knight? I'm in need of one as well, although, all I really have that you may have any interest in is a Jirachi.
One so far. And I have the Colosseum bonus disc, so getting Jirachi isn't that much of a hassle. Sorry, dude.

MEWTWO_PWNS_YOU: I'll maybe try to get an Adamant or Modest Lugia for a Deoxys.

Crystal Mew, they have the option to give you deoxys. They're also given STRICT instructions not to. I talked with them about it. Since most of the people running the booth have never touched pokemon games before, they tell them that if they give out deoxys it will mess up people's games!!! It works to scare them into not doing it. I lost that battle so I went to Houston and got 5 deoxys from there.

The reason I didn't get a Deoxys last year is the closest they came on the tour was NY and that's several hours drive away.

I'll attempt to convince them to give me a Deoxys at the DC location with the expectation that I probably will NOT get one.

If the officials say they aren't going to give you a Deoxys threaten to yell that they have Deoxys, and the Celebi line will flutter with like 200 people, and the officials will get introuble. It will work.
Official:Ok give me your game and I will upload Celebi.
Me:Can I have a Deoxys too?
Official:We aren't giving away Deoxys, sorry.
Me:*lean in real close* Ok, I know you have Deoxys, I am not stupid, now, load a Deoxys into my game pak please, or I will blurt out your secret, very loud.

I won't be able to enter the tournament, though, or get Celebi, as I sharked my Emerald (I'm pretty sure you can't get it if it's sharked, right?).

I don't think they check for downloading, only if you plan to battle in the tournament. So you should be okay.

Going into Boston, here's my current wishlist:

-celebi
-deoxys
-mew (will have to wait until a legit way is available)
-all the legendaries from the top 20
-soul dew
-liechi berry
-any shinies I don't already have

Here's what I intend to bring along for trade if you have something special to trade for:

-level 5 chikoritas, totodile, feebas (some already with max beauty)
-level 91+ linoone extras
-EV trained pokemon I no longer need (ok so they are not perfect, but at least they can still win some battle frontier symbols still)

I'll have to wait until a legit way to get mew is available then.

Of course I have no intentions to trade most of my pokemon especially the shinies, the ones I intend to use in the tournament, the ones for breeding, lottery purposes nor any of the ones that have special meaning of course.

7th July 2006, 1:44 AM
They banned Mew not because of it's uber status because almost all ubers are allowed, but because Mew isn't available to everyone like all other pokemon, giving others unfair advantages if they have Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, and/or Deoxys.

XanthianCaprie
7th July 2006, 1:50 AM
Exactly. They've never handed Mew out in the states. It would almost have to be a hacked character any way.

I don't think they're handing Deoxys out, are they?

I feel like I haven't posted on the forums in an age! Is anyone going to the Philly event? I was thinking about driving over for it. I work a lot of weekends, so the Wednesday event is perfect.

I have a semi-legit Deoxys... from a different save file's island warp :P, if you're interested, I can credit you for it.

My team is entirely legit though, I used a gameshark save-state thing to get that there Deoxys :D But it is technically legit.

Also, anyone want to trade me shinies for the GSC starters, Jirachi, Feebas, Lugia, Ho-Oh, etc? Those are all real, no problems there, check the OTs and everything, I also have shiny Zigzagoons from that Gamestop disc (gogo ebay). Name it (besides Mew and Celebi (but why would you need that ololol)).

If you offer me your Shiny Snorlax, or something (that user that had it), I will probably let you keep the Deoxys. I want another shiny that badly.

Hell, I may just trade my Deoxys for any shiny or something.

Oh yeah, Boston for me, serious business... offer ahoy!
