See post #38 for more, but I now recommend using the Search feature to use this thread. (Go to the eyeglass in your top bar, check the box for “Search this topic” and enter your State/City/PTO name to look for information)
Foreword: This may be an exercise in futility. But, hopefully it instead proves useful.
My goal here is to help players have a clearer idea when traveling of what format to expect when attending City Championships this year. As someone who will be doing a good bit of traveling myself, it’s information that’s essential to success throughout the cycle.
At this early juncture, it’s going to prove difficult to achieve that city-by-city level of detail. As such, I’m going to start by asking for players to give their geographic region, the format that is being employed, and ideally the name of the PTO. In particular, in the areas of the country where multiple PTOs operate, it’s going to be very necessary to have that detail.
Make sense? If not, feel free to post clarifying.
A super ideal post will look like this:
Organizer Prof. Oak will be using the Standard format for City Championships in Viridian City and Pallet Town and the Expanded format for his event in Lavender Town.
At the beginning, I expect/request things more along the line of:
Professor Birch will be using the Expanded format for all of his events in Hoenn.
While I do have a lot of knowledge of Regional PTOs throughout the country, that knowledge is far from exhaustive. For that reason, if you know for a fact that there is more than one Organizer in a given State/Region you’re reporting on (even if you don’t know the format for that organizer), please denote that.
