Black Friday Pokémon Showdown!
Are you a Pokémon trainer? Do you think your Pokémon are pretty tough? Wouldn't you like to know for sure? AADL is pleased to provide an opportunty for the best and most enthusiastic Pokémon trainers from in and around Ann Arbor to come together, test their mettle, and see if they've got what it takes to make it to the finals of the most exciting Pokémon event in town. It's our first-ever Black Friday Pokémon Tournament, this Friday, 11/23, from Noon - 5 PM at the Downtown Library. Bring your DS and your copy of Pokémon Diamond or Pearl with your Pokémon ready to rumble, or try our house Pokémon if you don't have the game. A portion of this event will also be recorded and broadcast on Comcast channel 18 on Saturdays 11/24 and 12/1 at 3PM, so be sure to tune in, and read on for full details!
We'll start out with qualifying rounds in the DS union room, which means you'll need 2 Pokémon at level 30 or below to make it through the early rounds. The trainers with the most wins in their qualifyting battles will move on to 4-player, anything-goes pools, doing a double battle with 3 pokemon. We'll have prizes for the best overall players and the best level 50 and under players. We'll also be needing some Pokémon experts to do color commentary during the broadcast. Also, because the event is broadcast, please bring a signed release form if you haven't already.
As for GT updates, sorry for the delay in the Round 4 writeup... I blame Galaxy (62 stars). Round 4 and full GC details are coming next week. In the meantime, does anyone know what is up with those little bag-like guys that leave footprints and disappear whenever you get too close? WHAT IS UP WITH THOSE GUYS?
