Pokémon X & Y Giveaway Contest

It is a very exciting time for the Pokémon fandom: the release of Pokémon X and Y is less than two months away! Since the forum's birth, Orange Islands regulars have been sharing their opinions and wishes for the coming generation both in the XY Discussion Thread and on IRC. Others have regaled the forum with tales of GSC Scramblockes and Pokémon Snap snafus, providing the rest of us with hours of entertainment. This contest gives you, natives of the Orange Islands, the opportunity to prove your mastery of Pokémon through a series of competitive in-game challenges. The top two competitors will each walk away with a copy of Pokémon X or Pokémon Y. Further prizes for third and fourth place may be added at a later date.

GENERAL RULES
  1. Your account must be at least one week old at the time this thread is posted. (This rule is to prevent users from registering and entering multiple accounts in an attempt to win both prizes. There is no post threshold.)
  2. You may not use cheat codes or knowingly abuse glitches when competing in this contest. This rule will be clarified in future rounds.
  3. To enter this contest, you will need access to each of the following games (either in physical or ROM form | do NOT ask for links to ROMs or emulators):
    • Pokémon Red or Blue
    • Pokémon Crystal
    • Pokémon Emerald
    • Pokémon Platinum
    • Pokémon Heart Gold or Soul Silver
    • Pokémon Black or White
  4. WARNING: This competition will require significant time investment each week. Only enter if you are willing to remain active until the contest's completion.
  5. WARNING: You must be willing to share your real life address with me (@Stellar) in the event you win the contest in order to receive your free copy of X or Y.
CONTEST FORMAT
This contest will consist of a series of free-for-all competition rounds. Each round, competitors will be asked to complete a specific challenge (e.g. speed run, Pokéathelon score, etc.). The specifics of each challenge will only be revealed when the thread for that round is posted. A certain number of entrants will be eliminated from the competition each round, with the players with the top scores or times advancing to the next round. The number of players advancing in each round will change based on the number of sign-ups. Each challenge will take less than two hours to complete. The timeline for this contest can be seen below.
  • Signups: August 15 - 17
  • Qualifying Round: August 18 - 24 (Pokémon Red and Blue)
  • Round 1: August 25 - 31 (Pokémon Crystal)
  • Round 2: September 1 - 7 (Pokémon Emerald)
  • Round 3: September 8 - 14 (Pokémon Platinum)
  • Round 4: September 15 - 21 (Pokémon Heart Gold or Soul Silver)
  • Round 5: September 22 - 28 (Pokémon Black and White)
SUBMISSION OF PROOF
At the end of each round, competitors will be required to submit proof of their scores or times. Rules for these submissions are as follows:
  1. All proof should be submitted to @Stellar via private message. DO NOT post results publicly.
  2. You are required to submit photographic proof for each challenge. The specific nature of the proof will be detailed each round.
  3. You may only submit proof once. If you complete the challenge multiple times, only submit your highest score or lowest time.
  4. Competitors are subject to random legitimacy checks. Myself or other judges may ask to see further proof (either photographic or .sav) to verify the legitimacy of your entry.
  5. All times are according to in-game clocks.

I'm not sure if this goes against the rules, but are ROMs of any form allowed. I don't really have a copy of red, blue, or crystal with a working internal battery. If these challenges don't require to be really far into the game, then it wouldn't really be a problem. But if it takes a large period of time to get to that point (close to the maximum amount of battery life), then it could cause problems.

So Mekkah was kind enough to remind me of the problem of region locking... so I figured I'd ask what the deal is with these XY copies. Will an alternative way of getting a region appropriate copy be explored or is it one of those situations where if you're not from the US (for example), you have the chance of winning a game that won't work on your 3ds? Anyway, I'll sign up regardless cause that's how I roll, haha.

Sites like play-asia allow me to choose the appropriate region before ordering. It will be a bit more expensive than purchasing a NA copy of the game, but it works.
