Japanese PGL Announces Eevee Cup Tournament

The latest tournament to be announced by the Japanese Pokemon Global Link, previously responsible for the Pokemon Center Cup, the All-Star Cup, and the Beginning Cup, is the Eievui Cup (Eevee Cup). Like the Pokemon Center Cup, the Eevee Cup breaks from standard PGL format and will be the first ever tournament to be held in the Rotation Battle format. Not only that, but the only legal Pokemon for the Eevee Cup are Eevee and its evolutions (that is, Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, and Glaceon), making this the smallest pool of Pokemon ever allowed in an official tournament. The tournament will be held over WiFi and players will be ranked according to their rating at the end of the tournament. As a thanks for participating, everyone who plays at least one valid match will be ranked at the end and will unlock special Eeveelution PokeDolls for their PDW account.

While previous PGL tournaments have received some buzz as potential VGC 13 rulesets, I think we can safely rule this one out.

Entry begins at 13:00 JST, November 30th, 2012 and closes at 23:59 JST, December 6th, 2012. The tournament begins at 00:00 JST, December 7th, 2012 and ends on 23:59 JST, December 9th, 2012. Players will be separated into Junior, Senior, and Master categories. Only Japanese Black 2 and White 2 games will be allowed to enter.
