    For the first time, Pokémon is combining their Trading Card and Video Game Regionals for one incredible event! The Florida Regional, located at the Royal Plaza is a new location for Video Game players. With a new tournament format, everyone gets to play and no one gets eliminated, so come join some of the toughest and most skilled trainers in the region at the 2012 Pokémon VGC Florida Regional.

    Information:
    1. Regionals has now become a 2 day event. The first day is for the card game, and the 2nd is for the video game.
    2. The tournament will not be single elimination anymore. Matches for tournaments are set up using the Swiss Pairing Method. In this method, all players in a tournament play in each round against an opponent with a similar win/loss record. Players are not paired against opponents they have previously played. You are paired with a random opponent through the computer that has the same record as you.
    3. There will be no Top Cut. This means that results will be based off of Swiss standings. Tiebreakers (your opponent's win %) will be used to determine placing.
    Prizes:
    1st Place
    • A Pokémon Video Game Regional Championships 1st Place medal
    • A Travel Award for the winner (including a parent or legal guardian for players under 18) to the 2011 Pokémon Video Game U.S. National Championships at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana*

    LOL, so I just assumed everyone clicked on the Royal Plaza link and knew but ya, the Royal Plaza is Downtown Disney, where you can get to pretty much all the parks and the resort/hotel etc.

    Yes, It's awesome our regional is here.

    Yes parking fares are going to suck >.<

    **Edit can someone plz Update the original post.

    Talked to the PTO, doesn't look like there will be any TV setups or side events during the VGC. So I wouldn't recommend coming before your signup time unless your a cardgamer, planned a meetup with other players, or have someone participating at that time and are there for moral support.
