    Tournament Registration

    Nintendo of UK is hosting a series of tournaments under VGC rules at local GAME shops across the UK. Prizes for the event include a bye at the UK VGC national championship and even a week long trip for two to Japan!

    Four different competitions are open to compete.
    • Ages 13 and older can compete in the Ultimate Pokemon Expert Tournament for a chance to win a bye at UK VGC National Championship and a Week long trip to Japan
    • Ages 12 and younger can compete in the Junior Expert Tournament for a trip to win a buy at the upcoming UK VGC National Championship and a weekend trip to Alton Towers theme park
    • A Player age 16+ and 12- can team up to compete in the Ultimate Team tournament, a Multibattle tournament, for a chance to win a £250 Nintendo UK Online Store voucher and a trip to EGX London
    • Newer players can enter the Pokemon Apprentice tournament for a chance to win a mega bundle of 3DS games valued at £300
    Participating Store Locations and Dates:
    The prizes are all pretty rad, so you're in the UK, get to team building and aim big!

    Thanks to Nintendo Life for the original article from which most of this information was pulled from.

    Now, even though I can make it to Cribbs Causeway, call me insane, I would like to, but I don't think I want to. I'm not the most confident battler, you see.

    I may, however, change my mind. There's still a while 'till April.

    Did anyone manage to find the banlist for this tournament? I had a hunt through the FAQs and terms and conditions and couldn't find any details.

    I think it's the same rules as VGC. They did hide them really well in the terms and conditions though, took me a good while to find.
