Six Champions Emerge From Pokémon U.S. Nationals

Six champions were crowned in Indianapolis this weekend at the largest ever Pokémon U.S. Nationals ever staged. The winners, and the next three finalists, will all travel to Vancouver, in August, for the 2013 Pokémon World Championships.

The winners, by division. (By the way, it's weird to me that someone born between 1998 and 2001 is playing in a "Senior Division" of anything.)

Video Games

Junior Division (born 2002 or later): Beau Berg, playing with Tyranitar, Garchomp, Zapdos, Cresselia, Hitmontop, and Scizor.

Senior Division (born 1998 to 2001): Paul Chua, playing with Politoed, Kingdra, Cresselia, Scrafty, Metagross and Thundurus.

Masters Division (Born 1997 or earlier): Gavin Michaels, playing with Ludicolo, Amoonguss, Landorus, Metagross, Volcarona, and Tyranitar.

Trading Card Game

Junior Division: Carson St. Denis, running a team Plasma deck.

Senior Division: Calvin Connor, running a team Plasma deck.

Masters Division: Edmund Kuras running a "Deck and Cover" Gothitelle/Accelgor deck.

    I think it hilarious that the 'senior division' is 15-18 years old

      I find it hilarious you can't do simple maths

      "Senior Division (Born 1998-2001)" would mean max age = 15. minimum age = 11 turning 12 this year.

    Wow I'll be in the Masters division... Shows how old Pokemon actually is if I'm considered ancient!

    Goes to show that the "Masters" age group really is the masters using an unusual pokemon deck - Deck and cover decks are technical, and unusual pokemon in their party like Ludicolo and Amoongus :)

    Since when are legendary Pokemon allowed in tournaments?
