I reckon they might get rid of the pentagon next year just so it's not an identical ruleset. Would be kinda stupid but it's more inclusive for people who want to use stuff they're transferring over.

On another note, Streetpass UK are doing their usual tournaments over the next couple of months. Manchester's qualifier will be on October 24th, so if I've got a team by then expect to see me there. Hell even if I don't have one ready I might just bring mono-fairy out of retirement for its last hurrah.

Planning to go to Yeovil on the 26th (also a Premier Challenge). Crawley in October is a maybe for me as well. Not that I can really get to Manchester even if I did qualify, or if I do it'll be by coach *shudders*.

I guess I'll see you there. I still need to think of a team for the Manchester event, as my VGC team was pretty atrocious. I know some Pokémon I want on my team so I just need to find other Pokémon that will work well with them.

And in classic Sabrofra fashion, I'll probably leave training and breeding until the last minute.

Guess who's a sad bedfordshire clanger and took the Professor exam? Yup, that's me. Hopefully I can start getting the ball rolling soon and start judging at some events. Then from there I could potentially end up running some a bit further down the line.

It's highly likely I'll go to sheff since it's by far the closest, not sure about others yet.

Glasgow's probably easiest for me. Sheffield and Sutton Coldfield might be doable. Probably going Monotype or something silly like last time I went to Regionals and used Vivillon.

Sheffield's the closest to me. So if I go to any, it'll most likely be there.

Yeah I'll most likely be at Sheffield. Also got in contact with Suzie who's kind of the face of Regionals and she's recommended for me to check out the London regional and finally get some judging practice. So that could be fun.

Finally know who I'm going to use at next week's StreetPass Manchester tourney. It's better than my VGC team to say the least...

I have no idea if my team will be better than my Nationals team or not. I'm bringing Mono Fire back. Which did slightly better than this year's team when it had its time. But I'm making some changes since there's plenty of new options since 2014.

Just finished my team for tomorrow's tourney. Just doing some Battle Spot practice now.

I actually finished a team the night before instead of 5 minutes before the event starts for once. For those going tomorrow, if you spot the tag 'SBF', that'll be me.

Oh yeah, should probably say that it turns out that I'm not going tomorrow because my eyes had to cancel. And I'm lazy. And I didn't actually sort out my team in the end. And I'm easily distracted. Regionals is a more important thing anyway. Except I'm not 100% on how interested I even am, tbh.

Yeah I'm not there either. Turns out it clashes with an event that was on the cards for months and I only realised last week. I'll be going to the Regionals though. At least the ones I can get to.

To make up for me not showing up today, I'm going to the London regional. There's a minibus running from Wakefield so I don't have to gooseberry fool around booking hotels or buying expensive train tickets. Get hype!

I might make London because I can pretty easily get to London directly and quickly enough. Who needs HS2? The only issue is the tube. If I can figure that out, I might make it.

Haha. I never expected to make top cut. I managed to get into the top four in the end. I've never done that well in a Pokémon tournament before so I'm pretty happy with how I did.

It may be simple, but I can't see and last time I had to rely entirely on asking staff for help and since then ticket offices and have been closed, iirc.

Also, congrats Sabrofa. I know the feeling of making top 4 at one of these events and it's pretty great. Enjoy it man.
