    Sorry you would prefer 20 places at worlds to go to USA qualifiers who won Bo1 Single Elimination matches 7 wins in a row?

    Yeah I don't think so.

    Continue people to talk about "why europe has it so bad" because it is true to format. Nobody is ever criticising our prizes for Europe so please if you're going to write a comment like that at least consider the view point that is being taken. EDIT2: The concern is with the format, not the prizes we're being given, if you're saying we should be grateful for how it is, I am pretty sure everyone is.

    Sorry to post like that but with everything I've seen people say about the european events I just think that's a narrow minded view.

    EDIT: Oh and I love Ray Rizzo really. <3

    also yea bw stuff is banned, things like tailwind volcarona, i know. But for example, if i have a zapdos on BW, switch it to BW2 and learn Tailwind, which it could learn in HGSSDPP too, is this allowed?

    I suppose it is allowed, because you can't control from which game a pokémon learnt a move. There isn't a registry for that. Only from wich version was catched/traded

    I'm not entirely certain but I'd try to avoid any Pokemon/moves/items obtained in BW2, even if they're available in other games.

    I recall reading that someone was forced to drop at the Nationals due to this. Basically just don't use b/w2 and everything will be alright.

    If you had a Zapdos that you forgot to tutor Tailwind to before you used Pokétransfer, you can use the BW2 Tailwind tutor and it will work out fine. But DO NOT put HGSSDPPt tutors on Pokémon that were bred or caught in 5th gen, even if it would be a legal combo from the same Pokémon caught in 4th gen. Someone did that and was DQ'd at Nationals, like soul_survivor mentioned.

    Yea, definitely not going to this, unless I can actually get paid for being an alarm clock lol.

    Pokemon.com must be pretty fed up with the BW2 questions by now, ahaha.

    If they're not fed up enough to put it up on the website, then they're not fed up yet.

    I'm not 100% certain, but from what I've heard from people who won prizes at US Nats, they got an email from TPCi with a code for a Pokemon travel site. I'd check whatever email you gave them and see if something is there.

    I'm pretty sure they give you a link to a webpage as well as a code on paper and then you enter the code on that webpage to redeem your award. That's what it was for EU winners anyway...

    There is supposed to be a shuttle which takes 2 minutes ( or walk 10 minutes )
    which will take you to a shopping center
