Nintendo has sent word that Australia will be hosting a number of rounds for the 2014 Pokémon Championships, inviting local gamers to duke it out over Pokémon X and Y for the chance to win a trip to the USA.
Regional qualifiers will be held over the coming months in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane, and Auckland. Prizes for these regional rounds include travel awards to help you on your way to the Pokémon Video Game Australian National Championships.
…and once you get there, it’s a simple matter of beating your competition and you’re on your way to Washington DC to compete in the 2014 Pokémon Video Game World Championships, August 16-17 2014.
There’s no confirmed dates for any of the Aussie/NZ events just yet, but while you’re waiting for those, it might be a good idea to familiarise yourself with the rules.
