Hola, aqui les dejo la informacion del nuevo campeonato de pokemon oficial de nintendo y pokemon usa, esta en ingles la informacion pero lo sobresaliente es que Mexico y paises del Sur de America no estan incluidos teniendo segun yo, el mas alto nivel competitivo del mundo.
This spring and summer, Pokémon Trainers will play Pokémon™ Platinum Version and battle for a chance to become a World Champion at the 2009 Pokémon Video Game World Championships!
In addition to bragging rights, two World Champions will win a trip for four to either Tokyo, New York, or Hawaii!
Pokémon Video Game Regional Championships will be held this spring and summer throughout the United States, and the competition is guaranteed to be intense. Trainers tough enough to qualify will earn a guaranteed competitor slot and Travel Award to participate in the Pokémon Video Game National Championships held in St. Louis, Missouri on June 27th and 28th. Pokémon Trainers who have the skill to qualify at the National level will earn an Invitation and Travel Award to the ultimate stage—the Pokémon Video Game World Championships! Note that European Championship Events will be played on Pokémon™ Diamond Version and Pokémon™ Pearl Version.
Reglas de este torneo las cuales son bastante buenas.
Each match is played using the Pokémon Link Club Colosseum, found on the top floor of the Pokémon Center in Pokémon™ Platinum Version. The tournament will use the Double Cup rules set, with some additional restrictions.
* Each match will use the 2-on-2 format.
* Each Pokémon on a player’s team must be Level 50 or lower. The Pokémon Link Club Colosseum does not have an auto-level feature, so Pokémon that are Level 51 or higher cannot be adjusted down to Level 50, and are ineligible for this competition.
* A player’s team may not contain two of the same Pokémon.
* Each Pokémon on a player’s team may use held items, though no 2 Pokémon on a team may hold the same item. Allowed items include held items from Pokémon™ Platinum Version, and earlier video games, including Berries 1–61. The Soul Dew item may not be used.
* Players may not enter two Pokémon with the same nickname.
* Players may not enter a Pokémon nicknamed with the name of another Pokémon character (for example, a Lucario nicknamed “Spiritomb”).
* Players found to have inappropriate/offensive Trainer names or Pokémon nicknames, as determined by the event staff, will be disqualified from the event.
