Posted by Damien McFerran

Over $5,000 in prize money up for grabs

Pokémon Black and White has been added to the roster of games at this year's North American Cyber League Summer Showdown, due to take place on Saturday September 8th at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Fort Lee, New Jersey.

The tournament has a $10 admission fee (to cover the cost of hiring the venue), with an additional $10 entry fee being required to enter one of the tournaments. This second fee will go to the pot, which will be awarded to the winner of each event.

You can check out more details on the official Facebook page.

I love Pokemon to death, but the game itself has become kind of stale, and even if you disagree with that, it is unbalanced as heck. Unless you are using a Drizzle or Sandstream team, you're chances of winning are very small. I still love Pokemon, but the game itself competitively... Also, don't get me started on the lottery like IV system (yes I do understand it).

@DarkKirby Most entering this tournament probably either hack or at the very least RNG, so the IV part if out of the equation, but yeah, competitively play is indeed scewed by imbalance issues
