Nintendo and GAME are Seeking Out UK\'s Best Pokémon Player

Become a Pokémon Master

Nintendo is on a hunt for the best Pokémon X and Pokémon Y video game experts in the country with the announcement of the Nintendo Pokémon X and Pokémon Y Battle Tournament 2014. As well as a quest to find some of the best Pokémon Trainers, Nintendo is also on the hunt for any new Pokémon players who want to test their skills and battle with their ultimate Pokémon teams. Prizes for winners include a trip to Tokyo and Nintendo products. Four players will also receive fast track entry to take part in the UK Pokémon Video Game Championship series, organised by The Pokémon Company International, taking place in May.

The qualifying events kicking off on the 1st of March at selected GAME stores and shopping centers across Great Britain, will then lead to a Grand Final taking place in London in April. The two top placing Trainers from the ‘Ultimate Pokémon Expert’ and ‘Junior Expert’ age categories at the Grand Final will then be offered fast track entry to the Pokémon UK Video Game Championships event this coming Spring, meaning they skip straight to the second round.

Qualifying regional events will start at the Birmingham Bullring and at GAME Brighton on the 1st of March. While at the event, Pokémon fans might find themselves taking advantage of the Nintendo 3DS’s StreetPass feature to battle with other attendees and prove their worth on Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, available now on the Nintendo 3DS.

If you think you have the skills to take on some of the best Trainers from across Great Britain, or simply want to have a go to try to win one of the exciting prize packages, Nintendo would like you to then register to enter here. You can also find more details in that link as well. Think you have what it takes?
