As you all know, the regionals are being run at multiple locations concurrently by local - traditionally TCG-focused - staff members. This is also the first time we are really starting to use some systems that have traditionally served TCG players, but are now being expanded to include us as well. Due to that, there are going to be some hitches. One such hitch is Player IDs to track all this information which most TCG players will already have, most of us won't. Here's how you get it: Go to Pokemon.com and sign up for an account (if you've already done this for Dreamworld or Global Battle Union, skip to step 2) Log in. Go to the following link to upgrade https://www.pokemon.com/us/account/upgrade2/ You'll get your Player ID there which you should then bring to the event. Please remember to do so. If you don't, you will get one there, but it will slow things down and we want things to run as smoothly as possible. The more of you who do it in advance, the faster the event will move. Also, please keep in mind that if you are not there during the time set aside for registration, you cannot compete. No late registrants will be accepted. Each regional happening this weekend has a thread. Each of these threads has a link to the official event page for the regional. Click through to there to see the time you have to be at the event and double check the day before the event. Thanks! Additional Update: Please do not move from your seat after your match until you've reported your results. Don't wander away from the event area. Follow the instructions of the staff to keep things running smoothly! Battle Box Before registering, you'll need to put your Pokemon into the Battle Box. You can save yourself and the event staff time by doing it ahead of time. Go to the PC in a Pokemon Centre and select Amanita's PC (or Someone's PC) Select Battle Box and move the Pokemon you want to use into it. Save your game and return to the main menu After registering at the regional, your items and Pokemon are locked. You'll be playing using the Battle Competition option in the main menu.
