This is my debut season as a competitive player, and I have grand ambitions to earn a Worlds invite!
The trouble is, I’m totally stumped on three topics.
(a.) Knowing where the tournaments are. Info is very scarce via Google and the official Pokémon site. For example, what secretive grapevine informed the 6P writers that Regionals is in Arizona? I have no idea how to find any events beyond a few nearby League Challenges happening within the next month. (That’s all that comes up in the official Event Locator.)
(b.) Choosing which events to attend. What’s a reasonable travel radius for each different tier of competition? Are we supposed to attend every Regionals? Or can we get to 300 by grinding mostly LC’s and Cities?
(c.) Keeping costs down when attending major events out-of-state. Two nights at a hotel can be prohibitive for many, so I assume there are groups that rent out rooms together. I’d love to know where they recruit and coordinate.
Thanks for the help. Any insight is most appreciated.
