VGC ’13 Season to Include 3 Regional Dates

We have trusted sources that have given us dates indicating that the regional format is changing slightly yet again for the next season of the Pokemon Video Game Championships. The fall regionals are being moved to October as we previously reported and that’s to make room for an additional winter regional in January. The spring regional will be staying in April. So far we have heard the following information (anything without Unconfirmed means the PTO has confirmed the date and location):

  • Indiana (Ft. Wayne – Allen County War Memorial Coliseum)
  • Northern California (San Jose – Santa Clara County Fairgrounds)
  • Ontario (Toronto – DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Toronto Airport)
