2016-2017 Season Schedule and Information


#61

About 3 weeks ago our PTO requested to hold a League Cup at a small gaming convention in Michigan and was told “They are not ready yet”. So we are holding 2 League Challenges instead. Hopefully with Worlds 2016 behind them, the can get back to planning 2017


#62

Anyone hear back about Vancouver yet? As a player in Washington with school, work, and a one year old daughter, having three close Regionals was ideal. Less travel is the goal for me here. Haha.


#63

Have you ever heard the saying “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”? Because I don’t think TPCi has.


#64

They did the same thing with Boston and Kansas City. I can’t speak to Boston or Vancouver, but Kansas City was one of the most well run Regionals I’ve ever been to.

I think they’re only picking the Regionals with the most attendance in prior years to run this year. Hopefully they have faith that the new Regionals structure will increase attendance a lot and add new ones (or just add back the old ones) in 2017-2018.


#67

You do know that those two things have 0 interaction with each other, right?


#68

Really, this just kinda kills the best format since HGSS rotated.


#69

I don’t understand this statement. Are you saying that the decision to not renew a Regionals location impacts your perception of a format’s quality?


#70

Well, if you can’t play in a format, it doesn’t matter how well-balanced it is or how little item lock it has.

Please be Kitchener, please be Kitchener…


#71

What’s the point of me praising a format if I can’t play in it?


#72

0% chance Kitchener gets a Regional this year. Toronto might be a different story but I wouldn’t expect it since it hasn’t been announced.


#73

Has Idaho ever had a regional and will there be one this year?


#74

I’ve heard that Canada is effectively killing OP above League Cups (except the players can play in Intercontinentals).


#75

No and no.

There appear to be no Regionals in Canada, so yes.


#76

Thanks Pokémon. Nice to know you care about us up here in Canada. Love you too.


#77

If there really are not going to be any regionals in Canada, that is truly ridiculous and a slap in the face to every Canadian Pokemon player.


#78

Companies often make decisions out of financial interests. It is what it is.


#79

Ontario will have a Regional sometime in May. More details TBA.


#80

Chris, you have the estimated dated for the Athens, GA Regional as on January 15/16. This would put the event on Sunday the 15th & Monday the 16th. The 16th is Martin Luther King Memorial Day, however… Just checking if this might be a typo or if you know more? As always thank you for compiling this so the we can plan and am no way am I being critical. Thanks again.


#81

You’re correct in that it’s the 14th and 15th, a typo for sure. Thank you!


#82

Any info on league cups?
