    • LF: As Many Near Perfect LEGIT Telepathy Dialgas I Can Get FT: Link In Thread
      By Garchompguy
      Hi there I really need a 31/xx/31/31/31/31 (or as close to) LEGIT Telepathy Dialga. I currently have two but I don't want to take a risk at the Sutton Coldfield Regional I am going to. I can offer several of these plus a couple extras (I have nearly every nature of Kyogre and Groudon with IVs)
    • Is there any new info for Seattle Regionals? (Hotel Room blocks, etc?)
      By nikkielovespokemon
      I've been looking everywhere but cannot find any updated (Seattle Center has a link but it connects to the 2010 rules and info) information on Room Blocks for Seattle Regionals.  I'm coming from Cali and this info would be greatly appreciated for planning purposes. Also if anyone is looking for an extra roommate and already has a hotel booked, I would prefer that over being in a room by myself (plus it's more cost effective).  I will most likely be flying in, as most of my group remains undecided on whether they are going or not.
