    P!P has chosen it's location for what is probably the most difficult regional this season, Nor-Cal Regional! This year, the small suburban town of Pleasanton has the pleasure in hosting a weekend gathering of the state's finest Pokemon players! Come join us for a wonderful weekend in Pleasanton. Remember, if you recognize someone from Smogon, just introduce yourself. We don't bite!

    Format
    The tournament will be in the swiss format likely with no top cut. Players will be paired up against each other and every round they will play someone else with a similar record to them. After a set amount of rounds, the players with the best scores (with tie-breakers determined by the win percentage of their opponents) will receive their prizes. This means everyone will get to play every round and nobody is eliminated in the tournament!

    Parking
    Enter the parking on Valley Avenue. Be prepared to pay $8 (one day no in & out) or $12 (both days, in & out ok).

    Side Events
    VGC Side Event on Saturday
    This is separate from the VGC event the next day. You do NOT need to enter TCG to play in the actual regional. This side event is for fun.

    • Will run concurrently with TCG Regional
    • You must be entered in the TCG tournament to enter (loaner decks will be available to VGC players)
    • Register before end of Round 2 of TCG
    • $10 & $20 Unique Skins gift cards for making a custom DS skin to the winners.
    Saturday Pokemon Giveaway
    AR Card Photo Booth
    There will be a giant AR card set up where you can take pictures with Pokemon using your 3DS 3D Pokedex app! It's like last year's setup at Nationals except it's a moveable 9ft version that can be any Unova Pokemon!

    I'll be there unless I suddenly run out of money again. Expecting Slashmolder to show as well. Both Masters.

    Oh yeah I'll be there.
    Hopefully I manage to place high enough (to four) to get money so I can afford to go to Nationals.

    Yes, I'll most likely be there. (Closer to where I live than last year's regional)

    Masters.

    I will be there for sure with my boyfriend (who is not a Smogonite...yet), both for Masters. Surprisingly the most difficult part of teaching someone about competitive Pokemon is the type chart. Also this time I will not go three sleep deprived nights before the competition :B

    Sleep deprivation is half the fun! We still had really good showings at Long Beach.

    Anyways, I'll be there for both tcg and vgc.

    You can expect to see me there, a less than thirty minute drive. It's also my first year in Masters (cut off is '96, right?). I'm going to be in the TCG and VGC, unless I get no energies to run my deck.

    If anyone is in the Santa Cruz/San Jose area and could give me a ride it'd be very much so appreciated. Problem is the only way I see to get to Pleasanton from the area is via the ACE which only runs on weekdays.

    Or maybe everyone was scared off by your threat of unleashing battle RNG.
