Yes and it was a state level tournament.
Considering that Gencon is about 5 times bigger then Origins, I was hoping that they would do the same for There. Not the win a trip part.. Too close to worlds to make that work but something more then a LC.
I just don't think they know what they want to do at these gaming conventions.. There are so many comic, anime and gaming oriented conventions that Pokemon could have a place at if they just had a plan to deal with them.
