Thread to talk about Japanese qualification Tournament (are there any japanese players in Smogon? They would help us greatly with this thread).
So, the Japanese are doing a new qualification format using wi-fi and allowing everybody from their houses to play for qualify to Hawai. This is a very interesting way to do this, increasing a lot the number of players and decreasing the wasting of money at the same time.
The Japan Cup - 2012 Spring WiFi tournament will also run in March, exclusive to Japanese players, which is used to determine qualification for the World Championship this year.
