The 2010 Pokemon Video Game Championships launched in Seattle on Saturday. Regional competitions continue each Saturday through June. The world championships will be in Hawaii this August. An enticing tournament, to be sure, but there are strict rules, you know.
You need a copy of Pokemon Heart Gold or SoulSilver to compete. There are many other regulations too. Plus, make sure you have legal Pokemon, which means, none of these creatures:
