    Unhappy Pokemon World Championships 2014

    So unsure where this belongs but I thought I'd just go ahead and post it.

    The Pokemon Video Game championships preliminary rounds have started around the country in England at various "GAME" stores with the Final taking place in London on the 26th of April I thinks.

    Has anyone gone to challenge in these?!? "game" in Brighton held a tournament today.

    With this dude taking the win in the end! Getting auto entry into the final for a chance to win a trip to Japan for 2 for seven days. Wonder what team he used?

    Will anyone else be going to these tournaments and taking part to get to the final or will you be heading to London come April?

    Would love to hear your thoughts on the Championships video game or card?

    It's too bad they only ever have the finals in Hawaii.

    Otherwise, I might actually be interested in such an event.

    Australia was included on short notice last year, but I'm worried we're going to miss out this year.
    I love my cute little Machop!

    Come on, you know Machop is cute! I mean, who couldn't love those endearing eyes? That adorable face? That loving embrace?

    Just don't call it cuddly or else it will hurt you.

    I love the idea also. Wasn't able to make it to Brighton. Tbh I've never gotten into competitive pokemon before never had the opportunity.

    This is what I got from nintendo's site

    Calling all Pokémon players! The search for the best Pokémon X and Pokémon Y videogame experts in the country is on – as the Nintendo Pokémon X and Pokémon Y Battle Tournament 2014 is announced. As well as a quest to find some of the best Pokémon Trainers, Nintendo is also on the hunt for any new Pokémon players who want to test their skills as the ultimate Pokémon teams.
    The qualifying events kicking off on March 1st at selected GAME stores and shopping centres across Great Britain, will then lead to a Grand Final taking place in London in April. The two top placing Trainers from the ‘Ultimate Pokémon Expert’ and ‘Junior Expert’ age categories at the Grand Final will then be offered fast track entry to the Pokémon UK Video Game Championships event this coming Spring, meaning they skip straight to the second round.
    Qualifying regional events will start at the Birmingham Bullring and at GAME Brighton on March 1st. Pokémon fans of all experience levels can battle, enjoy StreetPass with other attendees and prove their prowess on Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, available now on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.
    The four titles up for grabs include:
    • Ultimate Pokémon Expert - The winner of the prestigious “Ultimate Pokémon Expert” title – a category open to those aged thirteen years or older - will earn themselves a week-long trip for two to Japan, the birthplace of Pokémon. They’ll be able to immerse themselves in the Pokémon world by visiting the Pokémon Center and also explore all of the sights of Tokyo. Recommended for seasoned Pokémon players the “Ultimate Pokémon Expert” title will test your Pokémon skills to the limit. The first and second place winners in the Ultimate Pokémon Expert category will receive fast track entry to the second round of the official Play! Pokémon UK VGC event this Spring.
    • Junior Expert - Younger Pokémon Trainers (12 or under) itching to compete can enter the “Junior Expert” category. In this competition, a weekend trip for the whole family to Alton Towers hotel and theme park is up for grabs, for whoever comes out victorious. The first and second place winners in the Junior Expert age category will receive fast track entry to the second round of the UK Pokémon Video Game Championships event this Spring.
    • Ultimate Team - The “Ultimate Team” competition is exclusively for two family members (one aged 16+ and one 12 or under) who want to team up and take on other families in a four-player Double Battle. Successful teams will have the chance to win a Ł250 Nintendo UK Online Store voucher and a group trip for four to one of the world’s best gaming shows: EGX London 2014. This event takes place in Earls Court London, from September 25th – 28th and offers visitors the chance to play the biggest games before they are released.
    • Pokémon Apprentice - New enthusiasts can enter the “Pokémon Apprentice” title; where complete newcomers to Pokémon X and Pokémon Y can battle it out to receive a mega bundle of Nintendo 3DS games up to the value of Ł300.
    The winners of each category will be crowned at the Grand Final in London on 26th April.
