Re: Nintendo UK and fansites to host Manchester tournament: Nugget Bridge and Pokémon

For once someone got to reporting a PokémonWorld tournament before me xD. I should beat up my sources or something. I do remember something about it originally being planned to have an entrance fee, but Nintendo UK weren't happy with that.

Odd how there are only two age divisions - Junior and Senior, when the official events have a third age division (Master).

I was also surprised that you hadn't reported the tournament already. Will you be coming to this tournament @Joshawott? I will be coming to the Manchester tournament for the first time and I will be with my university's Pokémon society (which was created in November 2012) for most of the time.

I probably won't be, as I have to save up money for Comic Con in May. Manchester is quite expensive for me to go to.

Lucky people in the UK.

What are the VGC13 roles? Can somebody explain please? I tried looking them up on BPedia, but found nothing.

There is a link to the rules at the bottom of the article and here is the link to the rules in this post Play! Pokémon Rules. In a summary the rules are that all battles will be double battles in the flat battle mode which means no event Pokémon, version mascot Pokémon or Mewtwo are allowed, you can't use more than one of the same Pokémon, the moves Dark Void and Sky Drop are banned and the levels of Pokémon with levels greater than 50 will be decreased to level 50.
