Our round-up of news today really does include something for everyone, with news on a real life UK tournament, a new Pokémon to download for gamers with a copy of Black or White and a new C-Gear skin for gamers with a Japanese copy of the games. So let's just jump in, read on to find out more.
Arceus Download Now Live
Now, some of you might remember that, over November and December a poll was held by the Pokémon Global Link, giving gamers the chance to vote for a Pokémon which the Global Link would then offer for download in the coming months. After four long weeks, Arceus won the top spot. Today the event has gone live for players to download this special Pokémon. The Arceus will be at level 100, has no special moves and doesn't have a set nature. It can be found on the Global Link and needs a password to unlock which is: ARCEUSVOTE. The event runs until the 1st of May surprisingly. It was said the event would have ended at the end of the month.
Online Registration Now Open For PokémonWorld's London Gamerbase Tournament
Recently UK Pokémon site PokémonWorld have been planning their third tournament in the London Gamerbase store (part of HMV). After much planning and a quick date change, following the announcement of the Video Game Championships to take place in March, online registration for the UK event has now opened.
With some amazing prizes to be won (such as a 3DS and a Pokémon DSi), the tournament promises to be great. The rules will be the same as VGC12 rulings, making it the perfect chance to try out any team ideas you might have before the big event in March. It's also the perfect place to meet Pokémon fans who share the same love for the games as you, and it promises to be an event that will see some very exciting battles take place.
