Coming off the heels of the 2012 Pokémon World Championships, which marked a milestone in Pokémon history by incorporating real-life players as in-game trainers in the upcoming Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2 releases, I wanted to reach out as we are only 2 days away from the start to yet another exciting Pokemon Video Game Championship season! Taking place just one week after the expected record breaking video game releases, players are invited to compete in the North American Pokémon Video Game Autumn Regional Championships on Sunday, October 14th.
The Autumn Regionals are the first chance to earn an invite to the US or Canadian National Championships - bringing Pokémon players one step closer to the 2013 Pokémon World Championships in Vancouver! The Autumn Regionals, which is a free to compete event, will be held in five cities across North America including Philadelphia, PA, Santa Clara, CA, Houston, TX, Mississauga (Toronto), ON Canada and Fort Wayne, IN.
