Posted by Andrew Karklins
Online competition coming to Pokémon X & Y
The Pokémon Company has unveiled the newest of its competitive events for the fan-loved Pokémon X & Y titles for the 3DS. The 2014 International Challenge May is the latest online competition offered and allows any player with a copy of Pokémon X or Y to compete in battles with gamers from around the globe.
Registration for the event begins on 8th May at 8am Eastern / 1pm UK / 2pm Central Europe and goes until 15th May 7:59pm Eastern / 00:59 UK / 01:59 Central Europe. The event will feature 50,000 participants and entry will be on a first-come, first -served basis. The competition itself will take place from Friday 16th May until Sunday 18th May.
This competition will follow regular Pokémon rules for tournaments of this nature. All battles will use the Double Battle format and the only Pokémon usable will be those found in the Kalos Pokédexes. This means that Pokémon brought in through Poké Transporter and the Pokémon Bank from previous titles will not be able to participate in the battle.
