VGC '12 Northeast Regional - Philadelphia, PA - Won by JiveTime & KeepBayleefing!

#26
Babbytron is going to have his first loss this year thanks to my cousin, aka my cousin will probably get 4-0'd in 2 turns.

If anybody has questions about the area (food, hotel, etc.), I can try to answer them, as this is my hometown regional.

All the things drcossack mentioned are good.

I've never been to Ralph's, but I know the whole Italian Market area has some good food.

Citizen's Bank Park is an awesome place to watch a baseball game. You'd have to get your tickets on Stubhub, as we've sold out every game since sometime in July of '09.

The hotel he mentioned is definitely in a nice area, but it's kind of far away from the Convention Center. The mall nearby is huge, if you're into that sort of thing.

There are plenty of hotels in and around the Convention Center, so you shouldn't have trouble finding a place to stay.

Some other places of interest include, The Franklin Institute, The Please Touch Museum (If you are bringing along little kids), and The Philadelphia Zoo is always nice.

If you're looking for a good cheesesteak, DO NOT go to Pat's or Geno's. The only people that get cheesesteaks from these two places are tourists and drunks at 4 AM, since they're one of the few places open.

Instead, go to Tony Luke's or Jim's Steaks. Tony Luke's also has some great Roast Pork sandwiches (Get them with broccoli rabe and provolone).

The Reading Terminal Market is America's oldest farmer's market, and has a bunch of options to choose from.

I could go on and on, but you get the point. As I said before, if anyone has more questions, I'd be glad to answer them.

If you want some more in depth information, check out Visit Philly.

Im sorry guys but I've been through rigorous training with my little sister under waterfalls. Babbytron will rule juniors for as long as he's there, but that doesn't mean 2-4th won't be available.(stating the blatant truth). Well atleast my sis locked me a free hotel. Enough for me to be happy about.

We'll intend to be there, EE & Shinkou again, both as masters.

Looks like my prediction of the Cubs winning the World Series by the time drcossack ever attends a VGC tournament will not happen hopefully, looking forward to seeing you at least.

oh you mean the guy who beat me, ok

i'll be winning this one though, RI was just for shits and giggles but gotta live up to brendan's achievements and win a regionals in my last year of seniors
Don't forget the seniors competition. Idc what those masters are saying, Seniors has some really good players this year.

I think by the time the Cubs win another WS, we'll both be dead. lol.

Masters is looking tough as usual; why does that always happen here? At least it's Swiss this year.

such a stacked regionals, glad i have my byes already
Not a good time to make this my first competitive Pokemon Event then haha, especially since I'm terrible at Team Building. Oh well, I'm just looking to have a good time mainly and meet some Smogonites. Who knows, I might get lucky and do fairly well.

sorry but my scooping to friends strategy will make top 4 look something like this
1. Unrealtitties
2. Dtrain
3. human
4. idk EE or solace?

also seniors is easy win for Cybertron.
juniors is easy win for Babbytron.
EDIT: I don't even think babbytron has to play... they might as well just hand him the first place medal on his way in.


My kids are the best.

Hey people in general, I would very much like to attend Philly, but on the pokemon site there is a question area that states anybody who has already won a regional, in 1st place, may not attend any others. I really want to go to hang out w you all, try out a new team, but I don't want to blow the cash to get there to find out i am not eligible for entry. Anybody who knows the specifics please do tell
