    Pokémon video games are played worldwide.  In fact, as of March, Pokémon X &Y is the top seller for the Nintendo 3DS console by having sold 16.11 million units.  Coming in second with 15.44 million units sold is Game Freak’s latest game: Pokémon Sun & Moon.  Released near the end of 2016, Pokémon Sun & Moon has been the center piece for this season’s competitive battling.

    For months, Trainers all around the world have been attending events such as; Global Link battles, Premier Challenges, Midseason Showdowns, Pokémon Regionals, and the much anticipated Pokémon International Championships to earn enough Championship Points (CP) in order to get invited to the 2017 Pokémon World Championships.  Battles are comprised of teams of four; subjecting Trainers to the double battle format using only the Alola Pokédex.

    With the International Challenges already being a third of the way finished, Trainers are busy refining and analyzing their strategies and possibly their teams before they battle in the 2017 North American International Championships. This is the last stop where Trainers can earn more CP before the Pokémon World Championships.  The World VGC is an invite only event; players that have earned top ranks in each rating zone and have the most CP will receive an invitation. 

    UPDATE:
    So far we have seen the European, Oceania, Latin American and most recently the North American International Championships unfold.  Listed below are the talented Trainers that placed first in each class in each event.  Congratulations to you and to everyone that has made it to the top!

    Please take note of these particular Pokémon VGC Rules:

    (Pokemon Sun/Moon covers 1)

    Pokémon Sun and Moon have been updated to version 1.2, coming with the following fixes 2:

    Quote
    • Pokémon being unable to attack and switch when Sky Drop is used and when knocked out by damage done by Spiky Shield.
    • A glitch in Poké Pelago when entering a new month.
    • A rare case where the game ends after using an Evolution item as the last item in your Bag.
    • Scatterbug sometimes not learning Egg Moves.
    • Eggs sometimes being able to be given items.
    • A glitch ending the tournament when pre-registered for an online Friendly Competition (e.g. entry gets canceled or the Battle Teams get unlocked).

    Existing battle videos will be unusable after the update, which is required for online play. It is unknown whether another ban wave is coming, but as always, we encourage you to avoid major save file edits when going online.

    Along that note, we are looking for help grabbing RAM Dumps while collecting these events, hopefully yielding the WC7Full within!
    Steps and discussion regarding this, can be found in this link.


    We also require help translating this to Japanese and Korean, to get this information into those communities,
    and in turn also get help from those communities.


    Thanks y'all!

    Pokémon the Series: XYZ concluded Ash’s Kalos adventure with a well deserved trip back to his home in Pallet Town.  After all of the chaos that Team Flare caused in the Kalos region, I’m sure Ash could use some R&R.  Little did he know that a tropical vacation was in the near future!

    Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon features Ash learning the Alolan customs while living on Melemele Island in the Alola region.  Ash has always had a knack for making friends where ever he goes; nothing can isolate him!  With the help of his new pals, Ash discovers how exciting his newly chosen lifestyle can be.

    According to Pokemon.com, this will be the 20th season of the Pokémon cartoon.  The site also notes that episodes of Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon will be aired on DisneyXD, switching from longtime host Cartoon Network.  This Friday, May the 12th, Sun & Moon will debut in the United States on the DisneyXD channel.  Can’t wait? Catch the first two episodes now on Watchdisneyxd.go.com! Restriction apply.

    This month, Trainers have an excellent opportunity to acquire three new Mega Stones for their Pokémon in Pokémon Sun and Moon.  For the first time, we will be able to Mega Evolve our Abomasnow, Manectric and Tyranitar! 

    From May 17th to May 25th Trainers may register to compete in this month’s 2017 International Challenge May Online Competition.  Battles will begin May 26th and last through May 28th.  This will be a double battle competition that restricts Trainers to use only their Pokémon from the Alola region.  Other rules and restrictions apply.  Head over to Pokémon Global Link for more details.

    Trainer incentives:

    • Abomasite
    • Manectite
    • Tyranitarite
    • Championship Points

    Mega Evolution does have its own advantages and disadvantages in battle, so naturally it doesn’t fit in with everyone’s strategies. However, these stones are only available when competing in this event.  Don’t miss out on this chance to add more content to your collection!
