    Juniors & Seniors Registration: 8:00 AM

    Everything is bigger in Texas, including Pokemon regionals. All the best players from the southern plains area will be in Houston April 15 to prove they're the best, will you?

    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!

    Accomodations
    The Pokemon Tournament Organizer for this event has been able to get discounted rates at the hotel the tournament will take place at. Call 281-875-2222 or +1-866-577-1154 and ask for the "Pokemon Regional Tournament" discount. Your rooms must be booked by March 30th, 2012. The discounted price is $79 a night + tax which gives you the choice of one King or two Queen beds.

    Side Events
    For those interested in the video game, there will be free play from 6:30 PM to 11 PM on Friday in the ballroom. You can also play in the atrium for as long as you want. There will also be a side tournament at this time.

    VG Tournament - FREE / Top 2 win a prize

    • Single Battle style, with up to 6 Pokemon each. (One per player out at a time)
    • Black & White DS games only / Connect with their opponents via the C-gear
    • Double elimination (lose twice, you're out) / 15 minute Rounds.
    • The same Pokémon and Item restrictions as the video game championships apply.
    • Players must use the same Pokémon throughout the tournament. No changes can be made to the team.
    • Up to 6 Pokémon should be placed either in the party or in the battle box prior to round one
    Also tons of opportunites for prizes not related to playing!

    Totally want to go to this one but it's a longshot right now unless someone around here knows how to get around Houston really well. If anyone does send me a message, I'd love to go to this regional.

    I hate to miss this, but it's 3 hours farther than Dallas and since I won at St. Louis, Dad said no, even though I'd be paying :(. As it is, I'm rooting for my boy KEY-NAN NAIR-AD (lucien) to take back-to-back Texas regionals (don't worry though, I'll totally beat you next year ;D)

    edit: for masters Alaka and Werecario will definitely be in the finals

    edit 2: lol forgot we are in masters next year, so we'll go x-0 together!

    I haven't played seriously in...~2 years now, but since this is my hometown, I might try to go to this one if I have time to figure out the RNG bullshit before the tourney happens. And now back to studying for midterms.
