Competitive Pokemon has four main zones in North America, Europe, Latin America and the Asian-Pacific region, with countries such as Japan and South Korea running their own system. While that covers most of the world, it does leave a large gap on the map in the Middle East. This system leaves some players, such as Khalid Abdulla, in a difficult position.


If you don't care about 3D anymore -- and even Nintendo's interest in it seems to be fading -- then the New Nintendo 2DS XL is the absolute best model in Nintendo's line of portable gaming hardware. It's a shame the company makes adding new devices such a burden.

The Nintendo Switch exists, and is a fantastic gaming system that you can, in a pinch, play in a bar, a car, or on the train. Phones exist too, and the games on them are better than ever.

This weekend's Japanese National Championships proves that competitive Pokemon plays almost like an entirely different game in the franchise's home country. While every Japanese top eight team had some common picks you might spot at other tournaments around the world, players made plenty of choices that are almost never seen anywhere else.
