Miles Sanstrom will be running the Pokemon video game tournament this year at the Anime Banzai Convention! He can’t wait to run the tournament for you all. The rules this year are standard VGC rules, which are:
- Only Pokemon Sun or Moon games can be used.
- Double Battle 2017 World Championship Rules.
- Pokemon must be caught, bred, or received in Sun or Moon (must have black clover on status screen).
- Only Pokemon in the Alola Pokedex can be used, including Alola regional varient Pokemon.
- The following Pokemon cannot be used: Zygarde, Cosmog, Cosmoem, Solgaleo, Lunala, Necrozma, Magearna, and Marshadow.
- NO Mega Stones can be held by any Pokemon.
- No duplicate Pokemon or held items.
That all said, we encourage that anyone who would like to attend the event, please attend one of our leagues. We have a list of all the Utah leagues on our Utah Pokemon Facebook page. We encourage this so you have a POP ID, which helps us register you in the tournament faster. And if you are interested in attending officially sanctioned Pokemon events in the future, like our upcoming Utah regionals in the spring, you can be prepared for that. A POP ID is not required, but highly recommended. We hope to see many of you at the tournament! We’re going to have some awesome prizes that will be announced at the tournament. See you all there!
For players interested in championship point and Play! Points, this tournament is not officially sanctioned as Miles is not an official Pokemon Tournament Organizer, just a Professor. However, we have all kinds of great incentives for you all to play. Plus, who wouldn’t love to play Pokemon with a bunch of us nerds?!
