For the first time, Pokémon is combining their Trading Card and Video Game Regionals for one incredible event! The SoCal Regional, located at the Long Beach Convention Center 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 SoCal 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:
All participants will receive 5 Play! Points, and a Pokémon Regional Championships promo card (while supplies last), just for playing!

Finally, a VGC that I can actually participate in. I'll be there for the Master's Division. I'm glad to see that this tournament isn't elimination. That would suck for those of us who have to travel.

Also, any idea when the start time is going to be?

Having never done one of these before, all I would have to do is show up and leave a trail of decimated trainers to the championship? No city/town/village local tournaments? Sounds kind of nice.
