Australian VGC17 Usage Stats: December Week 1


Season’s Greetings everyone! Last weekend we had our first wave of small local events in Australia. We’re happy to share with you the results from the first 2017 season Premier Challenges at Box Hill and Newcastle, and Adelaide’s first sanctioned non-premier event for the year held by PokeAdelaide. Worth noting was that PokeAdelaide’s event was structured as 5 round BO3 Swiss with X-1 BO3 Top Cut, a format yet untested in the Australian scene.

About Cappa

Nathan is really, really bad at Pokemon, despite having played for a fair time. During the week, he spends lots of time with sick people and learning about why they are sick. Nathan is supposed to enjoy VGC, and pretends not to enjoy Love Live and distasteful memes. To listen to Nathan complain about life regularly, follow on Twitter @CappaVGC.


  1. Some interesting teams. I think the next Premier Challenges will be dramatically different.
