New Rules

Here's a link to the new rules: [1]. --Seevea of The Blackened Halls 16:25, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

  • Note that this is unlikely to be all the rules, however, it offers some of the base rules used. --Seevea of The Blackened Halls 16:26, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

What about previous tournaments?

There have been official Pokémon tourneys since Gen I. Why aren't they covered by Bulbapedia? Golden Trainer (talk) 21:10, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

  • Good question. I've considered adding information about the four Super Trainer Showdowns (2000-2001) and both Worlds (2002 in Seattle and 2003 in GenCon Indy), but I wanted to gather more information before starting them, instead of just making a stub for all of them. For the record, I was unsure about which of either of these article formats would be more ideal for these tournaments:
  • Individual Articles but Kinda Stubby; each of the following as their own articles (and as their name)
  • 2000 West Coast Super Trainer Showdown
  • 2000 East Coast Super Trainer Showdown
  • 2001 East Coast Super Trainer Showdown
  • 2001 West Coast Super Trainer Showdown
  • 2002 World Championships (TCG)
  • 2003 World Championships (TCG)
  • The issue is that there isn't much information out there outside of what I wrote for my site back in the day, so they might be a bit short and stubby.
  • Combined and Detailed; each of the following as their own articles (and as their name)
I guess I never really worked out which one would be best, so I never got around to starting these articles myself.
That said, for the record and the eventual article for it, here were the 2001 West Coast STS qualifier dates:
  • Sep. 8 San Francisco, CA
  • Sep. 15 Memphis, TN
  • Sep. 15 Philadelphia, PA
  • Sep. 15 New York, NY
  • Sep. 15 Salt Lake City, UT
  • Sep. 16 Roanoke, VA
  • Sep. 22 Orlando, FL
  • Sep. 29 Dallas, TX
  • Sep. 29 Chicago, IL
  • Sep. 29 Raleigh, NC
  • Oct. 6 Las Vegas, NV
  • Oct. 13 Denver, CO
  • Oct. 13 Eugene, OR
  • Oct. 13 Houston, TX
  • Oct. 13 Minneapolis, MN
  • Oct. 13 Syracruse, NY
  • Oct. 14 Kansas City, KS
  • Oct. 14 Washington, DC
  • Oct. 14 Toronto, ON
  • Oct. 20 Atlanta, GA
  • Oct. 27 Albuquerque, NM
  • Oct. 28 Boston, MA
I remember the San Francisco one, because it actually took place at Neutral Ground in Mountain View, and it was only a couple days before the 9/11 attacks. I forget if the qualifiers intended for Sept 15-16 were cancelled or postponed, especially the New York City one.
Anyways, that's all I have right now. I plan on adding more information, but not until I gather all the information necessary for the article. – Nick15 (talk) 06:13, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

Further for the record — I found basic info I wrote up about the 2000 ECSTS, as well as a copy of the STS logo:

... this should be enough to frame a skeleton outline for the 2000 ECSTS article/section. – Nick15 (talk) 06:35, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

Pokemon World Championships Template

Considering PWC is shaping up to be a major tournament in the New Series, I made a template that shows the participant in this tournaments, similar to how we have been doing such templates for regional leagues in the anime. I am just sharing this here, so maybe it can be important enough to mainspace sometime later. - unsigned comment from Riox-Ibui (talkcontribs)
