Pokémon World Tournament distribution details

When I first heard that we would be able to compete against finalists from the Pokémon World Championships in Black and White 2, I thought that sounded really neat. Both for us as players, and for the folks who get to be immortalized in a game. So cool! We now have the schedule for the distribution events that will make this a reality.

It all starts on October 22 with the 2012 Junior Division Challenge, accessible via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Next is the Senior Division on November 5, followed by the Masters Division on November 19. Each event includes the top four finalists from that division.

As long as you have a copy of either game and Wi-Fi access, you'll just need to make it to the in-game Pokémon World Tournament located in Driftveil City before you can take on these trainers. See below for the full list of competitors.

2012 Junior Division Challenge (Distribution begins October 22 via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service)

  • Junior Division World Champ Abram Burrows as World Champ Abram
  • Junior Division Runner-up Brian Hough as World Runner-up Brian
  • Junior Division 3rd Place Finisher Brendan Zheng as World Finalist Brendan
  • Junior Division 4th Place Finisher Kippei Takaki as World Finalist Kippei

 2012 Senior Division Challenge (Distribution begins November 5 via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service)

  • Senior Division World Champ Toler Webb as World Champ Toler
  • Senior Division Runner-up Jaime Martinez Alonzo as World Runner-up Jaime
  • Senior Division 3rd Place Finisher Nitesh Manem as World Finalist Nitesh
  • Senior Division 4th Place Finisher Henry Maxon as World Finalist Henry

 2012 Masters Division Challenge (Distribution begins November 19 via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service)

  • Masters Division World Champ Ray Rizzo as World Champ Ray
  • Masters Division Runner-up Wolfe Glick as World Runner-up Wolfe

Just tried to explain the word BEAT to an ESL student. Reference.com has 58 variations of the definition. At the least, they can finally understand that Michael Jackson was not asking people to fight each other.

Are we really calling followers "fappers" on these quick posts? I knew I loved Dtoid.

Someone is trying to log into my Dtoid account. I keep getting emails notifying me of bad password attempts. What?

If you spend 10 minutes trying to write a Quickpost...can it really be called Quickpost?

So I have enough coins to get a new character in Heroes of the Storm. I like big portly characters like the Butcher or Stitches, but I did enjoy my free week of Tychus. Crowd thoughts?

Today I learned that Bad Rats 2 is a thing that is happening. I don't know how to feel about this.

The temp agency that employs me had me work as a sign spinner today. As in, I held a six foot cardboard arrow-shaped sign and spun it and danced for six hours. It got interesting when a homeless couple confronted me about hogging their spot.

Witches of Crookback Bog from Witcher 3 is the best quest in the whole game and of any game I've played in recent memory.

I was just accosted by the most gorgeous cosmetics saleswoman with an adorable Hatian-Creole accent. It's not often my attention gets that immersed in a total bullshit sales pitch. Well, that and I didn't want her to let go of my arm.

My son just washed my Majora's Mask NEW 3DS because the screen was dirty. Bahahaha *cries uncontrollably*

Ever thought of skipping a console generation (and not upgrading PC for years, either) because of how big your pile of shame is? I'm doing that just now.

Apparently there are cancellations on the CE versions of MGSV:TTP from Europe and North America. People getting emails saying they are cancelled and such. On top of that is that there's been unboxings that don't have the extras for the Day One edition.

I've been mad at myself all morning for missing the apostrophe in "I'll" on my Quickpost last night, but it turns out that apostrophes just don't show up on the feed! Isn't that the bee's knees?
