Video Game Championships

Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

The 2011 Video Game Championships will be held from 12th to 14th August at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront, San Diego, California.

Participants would have to use the Black and White Versions for the tournament, and matches will be conducted via the Live Event Tournament Play function that is found within the game. This feature allows players to preview the opponents Pokémon at the start of the match without revealing held items or learned moves.

For this year, players will be competing in one of three divisions instead of two: the Junior Division, the Senior Division and the Masters Division.


All matches are conducted via double battles and only Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex can be entered, with the exception of Victini, Reshiram, Zekrom, Kyurem, Keldeo, Meloetta and Genesect.

Similar to Flat Battle mode, Pokémon of Levels 51 and above will be temporarily reduced to Level 50, while Pokémon Level 50 and below will retain their levels. Held items may be used, but no two Pokémon from the same team may hold the same held item. Players are not allowed to change their held items after they have registered, and can only use items from within the game and those received at an official Pokémon event or promotion.

Moves are restricted to those learnt from the game through leveling up, breeding, TMs and HMs, from a character in the game or from an official event or promotion. Sky Drop is banned due to a glitch.
