First Pokémon Video Game National Championship Announced in Southeast Asia

Southeast Asia will finally have its first ever Pokémon Video Game National Championships, held right in the heart of Singapore. The event was officially announced recently and will take place over the weekend of June 27th and 28th, 2015 at ITE Central in Ang Mo Kio inside the Campus Game Fest hosted by the Singapore Cybersports and Online Gaming Association (SCOGA). Massive Championship Points (CP) for the worldwide Pokémon Video Game Championship (VGC) series will be awarded at this event.

Event: Pokémon Video Game National Championships (Singapore)
Facebook: Event Page
Date: 27-28 June 2015 (Sat-Sun), registration opens at 10 am
Location: ITE College Central, 2 Ang Mo Kio Drive, Campus Game Fest, Singapore
Entry Fee: $8

There will be a discounted entry fee of $7 for players who pre-register early!

This is the first untethered Pokemon VG National Championship event. There are no restrictions of the region of the consoles. However, only players who have a TPCi Pokemon Trainer Club Account in proper standing are eligible to register for the events.

This will be the second Pokemon VG National Championship event held in the Asia Pacific rating zone. Like the Australia National Championships, the Swiss rounds here will also be played as best of three sets. With the first place award of 600 CP and hundreds of CP for the other top placings, this event will greatly boost the chances of rising to the top of the CP rankings in the Asia Pacific rating zone for players who win them. It will play a large part in players looking to earn an invitation and maybe even a travel award to the 2015 Pokémon World Championships in Boston, MA, USA happening from August 21st to 23rd, 2015.

    We are equally excited here to see how this event of the year in Asia will turn out to be!

    Congratz for S. Asia! It’s great that VGC is starting to expand to more places in the world. Yet Canada still has to share everything with the US…

  4. Raghav says:

    Canada should really get vgc back

    Hopefully next year, if this happens again, I’ll definitely be going. :D

    On the other hand, if Southeast Asia have nothing, our nearest neighbour will be Australia, which is more than 9 hours flight from Hong Kong/Taiwan.

    Please ignore my fellow Canadian posters in this thread. They are narrow minded and selfish. Thanks!

    Ignoring Rushan as requested
    Glad this event is happening though, something I think a lot of us in the West were rooting for since the 2013 LCQ.
