    I'm not sure, but it should be in the same area.... actually, I think all the ballrooms are in the same area, so it shouldn't be too hard to find. Just follow the trail of Pokémon Cards, you should be OK... :lol:

    I can bring my Wii and Brawl if no one else is going to, but I can't bring a TV. Also, if I were to bring it, someone would have to watch it the entire time or my parents/brother won't let me take it.

    I would probably be hovering around the general vicinity of any Brawl setups I see while I'm not playing in the tournament. Unfortunately playing in the tournament will take up most of my time.
