Attention members,

The Pokemon 2010 Video Game Championships have been announced on the official website. The rules have been posted, but no dates or locations. Does anyone have any guess when they will do that?

-Ryan

I will naturally assume that they will have them up within the next few days to a week. Again I say if they are a reasonable distance away from me I will take a road trip to go participate.

I never get anything down here. I live in Atlantic Canada. No Championships, Not even any events. Don't get me wrong, We have Toys'R'Us down here, but the closest one is like 3 hours away, and they don't do the events there. And we have Gamestop (EB Games, a division of Gamestop) But they don't even do the events there either. I went and asked and they looked at me like I was stupid.

This is just not right...if the stores are down there they should at least hold the events...meh...

How is "down here" a refence to canada? as your north of almost all of america, beside I pretty sure that the toys r us and are USA event not north america. I know this because when I visited Alaska (I live in Massachussetts) I did a download event there.

I have a habit of saying "down here", I didn't literally mean South. Also, I know they are North American, but the local Gamestops and Toys'R'Us just don't do it.

The dates and locations have been posted! A friend of mine is riding with me to the Atlanta, GA one, and I am going to compete in a Pokemon Video Game Championship for the first time after over 10 years of trying to make it!

Yeah, disregard this KingErick cause I wasn't reading it right when I posted that it seems...

I am glad that the locations have been posted also, I stupidely though that this thing was over but as with any stupid guess, it was wrong...

Just made it back yesterday and I lost. I won the first round, but lost the second. Oh well, there's always next year.

I won three competiton rounds, defeated 22 competitive teams(mainly those that didnt make it to the next round or while waiting to register)

but in the end my kindness got the best of me,

One of the competitors asked me to go ahead of him so he didn't have to face his friend, be the nice guy I am I said sure the come out with all shinys including a shedinja (that wasn't in a pokeball(dumb hacker)) but he narrowly defeated me anyway he made it to the finals but was booted after the manditory team check(single eliminatiton meant I was out already). Another thing that PO me was the fact that 10+ players all had the exact same combo, Shiny hitmontop, kyogre, palkia, abomasnow, toxicroack and 1 other pokemon that was original, then pokemon didn't even have different nicknames, I 'd seen this in a few other competittions too. worse is that 4 of theses guy made it to the final 16, all with the SAME EXACT POKEMON!

But I throughly enjoyed myself otherwise, plus my strategy worked great (I faced 26 competitive teams incuding the offical one in which i lost to) No one expected my bulk tank team.

This is absolutely retarted & tells me that they aren't doing enough to check for hacks & what not which is again, retarted...guess I won't be going to 1 of these ever unless they make some changes(or a change) of course...

wth is all that about?? the shinies and hacks. jeez, i wish people would do their job better..... if they had gotten him earlier, you probably would've gotten farther. btw, why didn't you say something (not a critique, just saying) when the shedinja came without a pokeball???

I did say something but the staffer said that I was supposed to say something before the match was over.

But I would still suggest going to the event if its nearby just to meet all the other pokemon players which for the most part are all cool and play fairly. It was lots of funs dispite the fact that I lost.

Well to be fair, there is hacks everywhere in the world where people play pokemon so I guess if I actually can conjour up a team worth participating in this event then I will go, that being the case if they are having one in my local area...
