    Copied and amended from my initial post on the Zenkaikon site

    Hello everyone, I would like to announce The Pokémon Black and White Battle Frontier at Zenkaikon. Zenkaikon is a convention that will be taking place in the Philadelphia area from May 11-12. Pre-registration for the convention is $25 and ends May 1, after that it will be $30 at the door for both days, this Pokemon event itself is free. Here is the location link, also from that link you can go to the main site for any information regarding the convention, including hours of operation.

    During Zenkaikon, 5 Frontier Brains with special pins will be roaming around Zenkaikon and taking challenges while we are available for anyone who wishes to challenge us in a battle with their Pokemon Black or Pokemon White video game. In each of these challenges there will be special rules that you must abide by along with normal rules that battle have. If you are fortunate enough to defeat a Frontier Brain, you will be awarded with their respective Frontier Symbol. If you collect all five Frontier Symbols you will gain entry to the free tournament that will take place on Saturday of Zenkaikon. Good luck and we are hoping to see a lot of challengers!

    Times and places for events:

    The full event will take place during the entire convention is different areas, all you need to do is look for the Frontier Brain's special pin designating who they are.

    There will be a meet-up on Friday at 6PM-7:30PM in the Board Game Room for you to challenge any Frontier Brains you couldn't find.

    There will also be a tournament for everyone who has collected all five frontier symbols on Saturday at 2PM and that will also be in the Board Game Room.

    These will be the basic rules that each Frontier Brain uses, unless noted otherwise:

    -LV 50 FLAT BATTLE (using the Pokémon Black/White Infrared)
    -No unreleased Pokemon, Items, or Abilities
    -No use of Wonder Launcher
    -Sleep Clause- You cannot put two of your opponent's Pokemon to sleep at the same time. (Rest not applicable)
    -Evasion Clause- No moves that increase evasion such as Double Team and Minimize may be used. Things like Sand-Attack and Sand Veil are still legal.
    -Species Clause- No two of the same Pokemon may be used on one team.
    -One Hit KO Clause- One hit ko moves such as Horn Drill or Sheer Cold are not to be used.
    -Item Clause- No two Pokémon can hold the same item.
    -Selfdestruct Clause- The moves Selfdestruct, Explosion, Perish Song, Destiny Bond, or any other such move may not be used if both players only have 1 remaining Pokemon. If a player uses one of those moves under this condition, they automatically lose.
    -Drizzle Swim Clause- The combination of the abilities Drizzle and Swift Swim are not allowed on the same team.
    -Single Battle- The Battle will be using the Single Battle option.
    -Uber Clause- No Uber Pokemon are allowed. These Pokemon include:

    -Mewtwo
    -Ho-oh
    -Lugia
    -Kyogre
    -Blaziken
    -Groudon
    -Rayquaza
    -Deoxys (Deoxys, Deoxys-S and Deoxys-A)
    -Garchomp
    -Dialga
    -Palkia
    -Giratina (both forms)
    -Shaymin (sky form)
    -Darkrai
    -Arceus
    -Manaphy
    -Excadrill
    -Thunderous
    -Zekrom
    -Reshiram

    Also, I wanted to address hacking. We look at hacking pokemon as a lot of events/tournaments do; don't ask, don't tell. What that means is, if you use legal hacks (hacks that make a pokemon's stats within their allowed parameters) then there will be no issue. However, if you are expected using an illegally hacked pokemon, via stats being unnaturally high, having attacks/abilities the pokemon doesn't normally carry, having abilities/items that are not yet released by Gamefreak, then you will be asked to show your pokemon to the Frontier brain and if you do not comply or are caught using illegal pokemon you will be disqualified from the event and all of your frontier symbols will be taken. Basically, don't hack. =D

    Any breaking of these rules will mean instant disqualification unless you can change it before your match starts.
