Sadly, I was unable to attend Wakefield today. I just had too much work to do ):

I should really sort out my priorities.

Went from 2-2 to 5-2 today, getting 15th place and some tasty CP. Super happy, this being my first '16 tournament

I spend 20 minutes researching and and confirming that you can catch kyogre/groudon after the E4 for easier soft resetting and then nick tells me you can just SAV gen 6 now. That just took the wind out of my sails.

Half way to the required points to qualify for TCG Nationals and avoid having to play in this horrible no fun allowed format but still being able to go socialise with cool people and compete. I can easily reach 7/10 points by early MArch, maybe more depending on how big Manchester Cities and Blackpool Regionals get.

I should be heading to the Manchester premier challenge this weekend. My team's nearly ready. Hype bois.

Also I finally updated the OP for VGC '16 rules so that's a thing.

I worked out yesterday that with the points I have I will be 15 short of an invite if I get top 64 at Nats. So the pressure is now on to place somewhere between now and then; whether that's a regional, midseason or even coming 1st or 2nd at a Premier Challenge (best finish means I would have to achieve either of those to improve on what I already have).

Slightly annoying that I haven't placed at any of the Regionals when compared to how well I've done at PC's but I've three more Regionals to go, it'll be fine. Hopefully. :)

I believe there's a Midseason Showdown in Nottingham at some point. A PTO I follow tweeted about it recently. I'd be interested if I wasn't hating VGC 16. But I know people here are around the area so might want to look at it. In fact, here's the thing: https://www.pokemon.com/us/play-pokemon ... 04-000094/

I didn't go to the Pokémon tourney in Manchester today, as my friends wanted me to come along to a Smash event. There should be another one next week so I should be able to go to that assuming that I've finished all my A-Level work.

It is great that we're getting so many events and as regularly as they are. Finally getting onto the same level as TCG.

European Nationals have been announced.

14–15 May
Exhibition Centre Liverpool
Liverpool, UK
21–22 May
Kongress Palais Kassel
Kassel, Germany
11–12 June
Mediolanum Forum Assago MI
Milan, Italy

It's also been announced that we're getting a Pokken Championship series at Nationals as well. Which I assume will be a Day 2 event.

UK Nationals in Liverpool is a bit of an odd one and kind of out of the way, it's a 20 minute journey from Lime Street station or a 10 minute Taxi journey. I think Gazooki found some hotels nearby. I'm thinking of going just for Day 1 as I can easily do the travel there and back on the day. With a contingency plan of Nottingham should the event run too late which I'm expecting shouldn't with different organisers and probably smaller numbers brought about by the odd location. Though if Gaz ends up volunteering and needs a hotel to do Day 2 thing then I'll probably stick around.

That said, I still need to qualify for TCG Nats. I'm only on 5 of the required 10 points. Though I'm due another 2 from the Cities I went to a week ago. Means I might have to trek to Glasgow for the Regionals there.

Yeeeaaaaah, I can't make it this year. I have exams the following Tuesday so it's probably not worth me going. I'm pretty disappointed as I've been for the past 2 years.

UK VGC Nationals has been confirmed to now be Best of 3 Swiss and Top Cut.

It's good news for competitiveness. Bad news for people with plans of travel and sleep. I can honestly see it going worse than 2013.

Wow you're right that's all pokemon is.

On the other hand pokemon is a pretty eton mess game compared to a number nowadays competitively and I can't go this year anyway

Well, if there's anyone still planning to compete in VGC this year, pre-registration is open and as is required to compete.
