PokeAus VGC Easter Extravaganza

We at PokeAus are proud to announce our first online live VGC 2015 Tournament on the 3DS taking place on April 4 2015!

With the Aussie VGC Circuit around the corner, we hope that this online tournament will provide some good practice, and we have some pretty awesome prizes up for grabs too.

Tournament page for registration and other information can be found here.

Tournament Format
  • Swiss Tournament with a Top Cut.
  • The number of Swiss Rounds and Top Cut participants will depend on the amount of entries we get.
  • Swiss Rounds will be best-of-1.
  • Top Cut will be best-of-3.
  • Basic Rules can be found here.
  • In Top Cut, you are NOT allowed to change teams between games, if you are found doing this you will be disqualified.
  • The host has the ability to call time on battles not completed. If time is called, the host has final say in who is declared the winner.
  • In an event of disconnection, please contact the hosts for further action.
  • Please record a video while playing your match (using a phone or camcorder), to help in case of disputes. We also recommend saving all battle videos.
  • As mentioned the tournament format is Swiss, so just because you lose does not mean you are done, play the tournament out!
