Pokémon 2013 Winter Friendly Wi-Fi Tournament Announced
Image

The latest Wi-Fi tournament hosted by the Pokémon Global Link has been announced for Pokémon fans with a copy of Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2, but this one sees us taking a break from the VGC13 rules and going into something quite interesting.

This tournament will see players swapping Double Battles for a shot at playing Rotation Battles, but not only that, the playing field will be left wide open with Pokémon Trainers being given the chance to use any Pokémon from the national Pokédex featured in Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2, apart from Chatot, which should make for many very interesting battles. Once again players will be split into two different age groups to make the whole thing a bit fairer, and anyone who signs-up will be given a Micle Berry.

Players will be able to register for the tournament from the 7th of February until the 14th, with the tournament then running from the 15th until the 18th. Best of luck to all those who do decide to take part and may the best Pokémon trainer win!

Really looking forward to this. What with it being Rotation and no CP at stake we might see less of ye old DCs. I'm also a bit sick of how competitive VGC has become, so a break from it seems perfect to me.

Also, are you sure it's 2 age categories? There were three in the last one.

Yes, it said so in the official rules bit on the page. Don't doubt my reporting skills here. ;D

You can use any Pokémon apart from Chatot. As for the second question, they've only been doing so many recently because they tie-in with the VGC events and are giving players Championship Points towards Worlds this year, but as the name suggests, the Winter Friendly is just a friendly tournament and has nothing to do with all the VGC centred ones we've had recently.

It's a complex system, or seems so to me because I'm not that competitively involved in the games, but basically the Championship Points count towards you qualifying for the 2013 Pokémon World Championships in Vancouver

The championship points system was introduced to take away the luck aspect of the championships. The in real life VCG events give major points and the wi-fi tournamnets give low points, so that if someone is lucky on the day of VGC, points received in the wi-fi tournaments could earn someone a place at nationals even if they were unlucky on the day of VGC.

Thats how i understand how the points system works
