Indonesia vs Taiwan August Friendly Results & Videos

Hi guys, Hashegi here. In this report, I am gonna discuss the Indonesia vs Taiwan VGC 2014 Friendly match which was held between August 30-31st of this year. This event was proposed by the Indonesian VGC Community. We proposed this battle during the second week of August and it happened at the end of the month. The trainers playing in this friendly were directly chosen by their respective community leaders or the country’s Tournament Organizer.

Neither Indonesia nor Taiwan have Premiere Challenges yet, which is quite sad. Indonesian itself has around 25-30 dedicated players spread across the nation; not to mention hundreds more who just play Pokémon, but not competitively. Pokémon competitive battling in Indonesia has been around for some time. I remember we had some simulator tournaments on Pokémon Showdown and Pokémon Online since 2010. However, until recently we had no VGC community. The TCG circuit always got sanctioned tournaments — and also Nationals in 2013 — but there was no sign of video game sanctioned tournaments until 2014. After the release of Pokémon X and Y, there was an online store that decided to sponsor a Pokémon tournament in the lobby of a department store. As it turned out, 123 trainers attended the tournament! That was the turning point of Pokémon competitive community. In January, Indonesia decided to join the 2014 Asia Cup which turned out pretty well. One of our trainers went to the Top 8 while another one of our representative reached Top 16. After that point, one of the leaders from a Pokémon forum in Indonesia and I decided to start an Indonesian-speaking online community to expand the level of VGC play in the country. Even though the number of players in Indonesia isn’t as high as in Japan or western countries, our trainers are also very dedicated in playing Pokémon in the Video Game Championships.

    Oh, Indonesia, hi! Seeing as how you seem to be doing friendlies with the other non-VGC countries around our part of Asia, I was wondering if you’d be interested in also having friendly matches with the Philippines sometime?

  2. AzukaNakano says:

    Hello Drake, Greetings from Indonesia!
    I’m really happy to see other country is also as excited as we are about this kind of friendly match, we from Indonesian Pokemon VGC Community is hoping that with this kind of event we can have more official Pokemon Events in our country, and of course, a Nationals
    I would love to have a friendly match with another country , but since i’m just a player i don’t have any right deciding things lol, you can ask your country’s Event organizer to talk things over with Indonesia’s Event Organizer, His FB name Is “Michael Pond Wijaya”
    Thank You!

    Hi! Thank you for having interest in a friendly match with Indonesia. Me, with Michael Pond is targeting for at least an International Friendly Match every 2 months. Every month if possible! So if you are interested, you could send me PM in my Facebook Hashegi Hanjaya. Cheers!

    Great to see you guys taking matters into your own hands and sorting out a friendly on your terms. Hopefully this works out as a starting point for more official events coming your way. Well done to all who played!

  5. Good to see VGC expanding hopefully you guys get events soon as you guys seem to have a growing audience for VGC events.

    The day India gets anything like this,is the day I will run around the streets of Delhi screaming like a retard 🙁

  7. AzukaNakano says:

    you can build the vgc community from scratch! like what we did in indonesia. you can arrange some tournaments constitantly and then when you have enough consistent player you can also propose to other countries for a friendly match !
    I hope that you can have a decent vgc community there in India, Cheers!

  8. kibago11 says:
