    An official tournament has been announced to take place over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

During the tournament, you’ll play against other Trainers online, using your Nintendo DS system and your Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version game. The better you do, the higher you’ll rank. Then, at the end of the tournament, all the results will be posted to the leaderboards on the Global Battle Union website! There are only 10,000 35,000 spots available, during the sign up dates listed below:

    Dates

    Haha! Yes! I didn't get a chance to go to any VGC '11 stops because the new baby is on the way and I can't afford to use any vacation days at this time, but this will be a fun way to finally use those VGC '11 teams I made! Excellent news!

    I remember Japan was getting this as well. Is that tournament already over? Maybe this will become an annual thing that happens after Worlds =)

    Awesome! The VGCs aren't held in my country, so this is a great opportunity for me and my compatriots to show off our mad doubles skillz. Haha.

    Nintendo had the rule scripts done,
    This tournament was run about 9 months ago in japan, so they are bringing it to the US
    I'm happy we are actually getting this.

    It's funny how they have registration open for a week, but only 10,000 spots.

    Hate to sound hopeful, but I'd love to see the top 3 placing Trainers get to choose a DW Pokemon of their choice. Hopefully the winners would all be from Smogon so they could plan on what Pokemon to release. It wouldn't do anything for Ditto, Zapdos, & other Genderless Pokemon, (Since there'd literally be one in existence. Wouldn't exactly consider it legal.) but having Female Shroomish, Garchomp, Mamoswine, Infernape, or...Riolu legal would be very awesome.

    I struggled to even come up with 5 noteworthy non-genderless DW Pokemon. We're starting to hit the bottom of the 1st-4th Gen barrel now.

    Regardless of if they're awesome & do that or not, I'm still hyped.

    I don't like that it's doubles battles. It will be fun to make teams out of strictly Gen 5 Pokes though.

    The most interesting thing (in my opinion) is that the battles will have no permanent weather available. That will definitely be a refreshing change of pace.

    You do realize that doubles has been the format since 2008. It is nothing new.

    Having just gotten off today's VGC2011 tournament in Melbourne, this tournament is tempting. Sadly, TAFE will be returning this Monday so I may not have time. Let me sleep on it nh.

    It's kind of a shame that it has the ruleset from the 2011 VGC, some practice for 2012 would be pretty cool

    The timings couldn't be better for me.
    I'll give this a try, I missed VGC 11 last year so this should be great!

    If they allowed to pick any pokémon to recieve it via mystery gift, expect massive rage and complaining in the OU ladder when the winner picks Chandelure or something equally ridiculous.
    I like how the absurdly low amount of spots, going to camp the registration page until it starts.
