Pok?mon 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.
