Which hotel did you book? Booked a place now at Brittania Airport with my group, Trafford Centre (where we stayed last time) was sold out thanks to Take That ._.

Oh... I may have been partially responsible for that then. Managed to get booked into Trafford Centre West before it all sold out.

My priority at the moment is finding a job and somewhere to live, and afterwards I need to sort out what I'm doing about my families holiday (I'm in Devon Mon-Fri the week before Nationals) so it'll be about a month or so before I can say one way or the other for definite. There's a group of people from the Bristol TCG league that I've been going to the Yeovil PC with who're mostly under 18 but still want to go to Manchester, they've asked if I'll do the responsible adult bit for hotels which I'm fine with but it does add another cog to the already slightly complex wheel. I really want to attend this year and will do everything I can to do so, but it's not something I can say for certain at this point.

On a different tangent, after two weeks I finally got a decent Landorus. Adamant, 31 in everything apart from Def and SpDef (29 each, so one stat less than max). I'm happy with that :)

Want me to update the OP with the Nugget Bridge Major, or do you fancy updating it yourself? I don't mind either way.

It's fine either way, don't think there's enough people signed up on here to justify it though :P

I'll also update the second post with the people attending this year's VGC. Just post if I've missed you or added one of you who isn't actually going (:

Most likely gonna be at nationals this year Sabrofra. :) Thanks for finding my match for me Xeno, I was gonna look when I got in this evening but you beat me to it. :P Now to get a decent Thundurus, I think I might forgo HP Ice and just slap Swagger on the first 30+ IVs in Hp/Def/SpDef and Speed that I get.

How's everyone's Nugget Bridge Major battles going?
I got thoroughly rekt by P3DS after winning my first round, perish trap encore disable rain is just too stronk. ;~;
The battles were super fun and interesting though, especially the first as I managed to make some nice #plays though not taking a switch opportunity ended me

I'm 1-1 at the moment, very close first round set but my second round set was fairly easy. Yet to play any high profile players.

Managed to face Asia Cup Qualifier winner Level 51 and somehow won, putting me at 2-0. Hyped for the next round

Not in the NB Major since I don't have a team on ORAS at the moment, but trying to hurriedly put together one so that I can go to the streetpass event in Nottinggham this weekend. I thought breeding was easy after getting a 6IV Beldum from the 6th egg. Then I realised getting Togekiss will be the most ridiculously long and convoluted thing ever because of natures, ability and Togepi being unable to breed.

I feel the pain, I had that problem breeding Raichu with the additional problem of getting HP Ice.

I did breed a Raichu for a previous team that never saw any use. That was particularly difficult as I was trying to get Volt Tackle for reasons, which meant having to use a Light Ball and losing control of nature.

And I'll be there too. In fact it was my idea in the first place. And yes, most likely I'll be bringing Mono-Fairy out of retirement for this one because Monster Hunter's consuming my life.

Do you know what time registration is? All I know is the event starts at 12. So, I don't know if that means when we start signing up or when we start playing. Organisers really should make this clearer, I have a similar problem with a City Championships for TCG the following weekend.

Most likely will be unable to attend this year's VGC as it's the weekend before the 2nd half of my exams start. Pretty gutted, but there's a Pokémon tourney being held by Streetpass Manchester very soon so at least that's something.

Quite annoyed now, I was looking forward to going to Nottingham, but having looked at travel arrangements, getting home is just too much of a hassle. I would have to be getting a replacement bus service for part of the journey and getting home at 10pm at the earliest. It would be totalling about 8 hours travel over the course of the day and without managing to put get together the team I would have liked to use and the tournament not being a Premier Challenge or Streetpass national qualifier, I'm finding it hard to justify it to myself. I rather stupidly assumed that because getting there was easy, getting back would be too. Best of luck to those who do go though.

Finished the tournament in 3rd place which was pretty sweet!
Gonna try and get a few new teams tested, though; I'd love to use Heracross again and I also want to test Banette and Slowbro.

StreetPass Manchester are having a Pokémon event on March 29th. I think it'll most likely be VGC according to the main guy running it.

Do you know if it's going to be a Premier Challenge at all? If so I'll have to look into travelling there
