heh, I saw a belly drum in thar
but seriously, why is it 99% juniors <_<
Cause Pokemon is a kids game duuuuh
Children are the future of this game.
I'm going to be writing a Worlds Article, and I'd like confirmation on the finalists teams if possible, so far I'm looking at:
Can anybody fill in some more blanks?
I don't think anybody knows Hippowdon. Shoe fought it and Mano; I'll ask him when I see him. Can't guarantee any more info though. :P
Hippowdon had Protect. Also one of his items was a lum.
And whoah nice one Donut! Just noticed this post. Big thanks to slimceagirl too.
Lol Donut, by the way Shoe says you're a really nice guy. :P
Edit: Awww they didn't air Shoe trading his shiny Aipom for Magnezone. Oh well. Does anyone have one of those Sableyes by the way?
Moltres had a focus sash. It survived explosion from snorlax in the first match and a message popped up right after its HP fell.
it was also scarfed at some points, like most teams the items were moved around. I think the best way to lay it out is to do all the pokemon and movesets and then the six items at the bottom
... just like the way one had to fill out these team information sheets
Good idea Alakapimp, I might look into getting someone to HTML it in that format.
However, it might be a bit pointless to post unfinished teams in an article, so I may not post all the information we have unless I can find it all.
There was definitely Rain Dance on Salamence and not Hydro Pump. I translated the move when watching the vid, and why would Salamence use 210 power Draco Meteor (STAB) vs 240 power Hydro Pump (SE) if it had it?
Also, here are Kazuyuki Tsuji's items:
Choice Scarf (Metagross?)
Focus Sash (Toxicroak)
Lum Berry (Empoleon/Ludicolo?)
Wacan Berry (Empoelon)
Sitrus Berry (Salamence)
Cutsap Berry (Snorlax)
Ha, Shoe just found an interview with Sadman on the ONM website.
Has a picture of me on it lol. And for the record, the caption "Sadman defeats another opponent" isn't strictly true. The picture was taken when he got the opening crit, not after the battle lol. It's more of an "Oh, fuck." facepalm than a "NOOOO!" one, which it looks a lot like given the context.
They're introduced Leagues for the video game series. Go check your nearest league guys.
Also, 2010 information on the date held has been revealed.
Wait, where does it say that?
I Think it's only for TCG
I'm expecting it to be for Video Game players too, I sent an e-mail earlier this afternoon so I'm hoping to get a reply soon.
I mean, it's probably they do it for VGC too, but right now the places announced are only confirmed for TCG...
As far as I know, the Pokémon League's are run all over the world, and while they are mainly TCG events, player's are now encouraged to come along with their DS and video games. So, any event that is a TCG Event will also be a VGC Event at the same time, unless stated otherwise (eg. A TCG-only tournament).
Use the League Locator to find a League near you, I found one in Manchester, England, so I'm seeing if the first meeting (on Wednesday 23rd here in England) is also a VGC event.
League's are basically 'for fun'. TCG and VGC player's will turn up and battle others randomly for fun. You'll have a scorecard to mark how many matches you've played, and you'll be able to recieve prizes if you play enough games. It doesn't matter if you win or lose. However, there will also be tournament play. It'll be stated whether the tournament is TCG or VGC.
Hopefully it's all starting together next week.
I think the evidence is pretty clear now:
This is the Score Card for the 'Rival Season' of the Pokémon League. This League Season will run from 9th September 2009 until 26th October 2009. On the image of Snorlax, it clearly says "Video Game", hence the scoring for VGC player's being pretty much announced. So we can start going along and battling people as early as next week.
BUT, they are completely meant as a sideshow, I submitted to start a league with vgc as its main focus and was rejected saying that tcg should be the main focus of any pokemon league, still a step in the right direction, if a very very miniscule one.
Yeh, VGC is clearly a side event, but at least it's there.
