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.

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.

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.

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.
