    Preparing for it now. Pokemon.com won't accept my username and password (which I know for a fact is correct since I wrote it down) for some reason.

    I hope the rage quits are less this time...
    I've been disqualified from the past two tournaments because of them >_>

    But anyways good luck everyone!
    Hopefully I'll battle you~

    Good luck to you, too!

    Are you a master or senior?

    I'm gonna enter, but I still don't have a single idea about which archetype of team I'm gonna use...

    Signing up, but I think I'll hold off from immediately entering like I did for the rotation tourney. And hopefully this time Gamefreak/Nintendo doesn't fuck up, and decide not to rank me.

    Yeah this'll be pretty cool, you know, barring D/Cs. At least I have a new team ready this time.

    For some reason I feel like the next International Challenge promotional image will have the Hoenn starters in it (and that we'll see three more of thse challenges before the release of X and Y). Just a hunch, though....

    With a bit luck we might not get kicked out this time. This is going to be our first practice experience in VGC format so we hope we are sufficiently prepared. Double only, we assume.

    Just two more of these this season after this one. The Japan Cup is using the Gen 5 starters though and that's the only other WiFi tournament left that will play a part in the VGC circuit.

    Senior I am :D

    I was thinking of doing a mono flying type team
    I wonder how effective it'd be

    I'm definitely planning to enter this tournament. Hopefully I can do as well as I did in the previous Rotation tournament - top 5 is going to be tough to match ^_^

    Good luck everyone!

    I plan to be in it as I'll use an experimental team this time that I might consider using for the April regionals.

    Having some troubles loading Global Link this morning, but definitely entering. Going as Ryan from Pennsylvania, Roughneck trainer class.

    An official statement on TGCO said that they're currently having a lot of technical difficulties with account information, and they're working hard to get it fixed.

    So everybody, do you think that techniloom will STILL be a huge think like in the last tournament?

    And what are you expectations when facing a japanese player?

    One thing: My sister is going to participate in the senior's league this year. How do you think it is different from the master class, since we use the (exact) same team? Should we expect more or less unsportsmanlike behaviour?

    Poor behavior comes from poor sports, regardless of age. Either of you two have an equal risk of being DCed on in any given battle.

    If I can finish my team I'll enter, otherwise there is another one in April.
