I will point out that this is unofficial until you see it on the PUI website, but since Terry and I decided to do a joint application, it kind of reduced the competition. :wink:

While the details still need to be worked out with PUI, we wanted to let you know the date (it is actually May 28th) and the location so you can make plans early. The 28th is the start of Memorial weekend, so take a nice vacation to the Oregon Coast, stopping in Portland on Saturday! :thumb:

Hey great to hear you're coming Sebastion. Expect to have a rematch from me there. I promise you :thumb: . And I've already started my training so I won't be no easy pushover. I promise I'll be twice or more as tough as i was in Port Coquitlam. You can count on that.

uhhhhh... Bored... Need tourys... *Time travel* HOORAY!!! Well I look forward to this one. But first EX: Emerald!!! Good ol GatreEX! :smile:

Dark Legendary Master
03/21/2005, 12:14 PM
Hate to burst your bubble Jeremy, but there's a strong chance that the next set is not GS, meaning no Gatre ex for now. I say this because there's still several other cards they have which are yet to be released here. We don't really actually know what this set will contain. How many times before have they tricked us and sent out a completely different set? Sorry but I see a strong chance that Emerald is not GS. We just have to wait and see.

Hmmm, oregon again? lol, if I win I can pick up those 300 bucks nintendo owes me for states.

Dark Legendary Master
03/21/2005, 04:16 PM
I could have sworn that 300 bucks was travel allowance given to you at Nationals, isn't it?

Ancient Pokemon Trainer
03/21/2005, 04:18 PM
EX: Emerald is the next set Seth. So sorry but YES YAY GATREEX!!!

Dark Legendary Master
03/21/2005, 05:28 PM
Yes EX Emerald is the next set, but no one ever said that Emerald is indeed Golden Sky Silvery Sea, the set in Japan which has Gatre. It may just be a combination of several other cards from Japan like QCP that we're yet to get.

Articjedi
03/21/2005, 05:28 PM
no, but if I get a trip to origins, I actually have some incentive to grab those 300 for what now becomes a free trip. If I don't win, it's not worth spending the 1000 or so to go to origins to get the travel allowance.

Dark Legendary Master
03/21/2005, 06:00 PM
I thought the top prize was a trip to worlds... :confused:

Yeah, the lack of knowing whats in this set is making any kind of preparation for the next month (before the pre-release) very annoying. Are we getting Milotic? Are we getting Gatr? We don't know and it makes me so angry.
And I'm pretty sure there is a trip to WORLDS on the line. There may also be the same 300$ Nationals package but no free trip I think.

Ancient Pokemon Trainer
03/21/2005, 06:59 PM
No Emerald is golen sky silvery sea. I'm 99% sure. :wink: MiloticEX was in one of those special decks Japan got the others were Camerupt, Cacturne, Rachui(Another RaichuEX), like the psychic one was Slowking or something I fogot.If MiloticEX is in Emerald I do not know. I do know we can expect Ganium, Gatre, another Ty, T-tar, Espeon, and most likely Umbreon EXs.

Pidgeotto Trainer
03/21/2005, 07:28 PM
Jeremy you don't have all the info or else you would not be 99% sure of anything.

Dark Legendary Master
03/21/2005, 09:56 PM
No one knows. We have to wait. Emerald version is a combination of Hoenn and Johto Pokemon. If I remember correctly, Golden Sky Silvery Sea is supposed to be Johto Pokemon only. So looking at this, we have to expect it will be a combination of Pokemon from both Hoenn and Johto, not just Johto. We've already seen Rayquaza, Groudon, Kyogre, and Doexys speed form on the prerelease poster, which suggest those might be in the set. That already changes everything around. Those pokemon are from Hoenn.

calm down everybody...this is the NW REGIONALS page, not EX EMERALD prerelease page...and to answer all questions, it will most likely be a combo of the Pre Con Decks and Golden Sky Silvery Sea (EX EMERALD) set...but back to topic?? Since BDS and Pokeplayer are combining forces to bring this REGIONAL...is BDS throwing the NORTHERN CALIFORNIA one again??? was just wondering...cause our PTO is only doing the SOUTHERN CALI one?? just would like to know if you could either post up some info on this or PM me, cause last year's roadie to Berkley was AWESOME!!

thanks

We are working on the list of side events. We'll have a number of booster drafts, using Emerald most likely; a Game Boy tournament; perhaps some Theme Deck Challenge tournaments; and some kind of constructed tournament. If we did an Unlimited constructed tournament after the cut to Top xx would anyone be interested?

I would like to take this chance to formally retract all my above posts that have now been edited. It was brought to my attention that they where not taken as they where meant to be and I give my appolgys. I meant no offence and did not mean to sound too cocky but if you go check out the Oregon states thread and read it you will see where it came from. Again to those I offended no hard feelings. :thumb:

Pidgeotto Trainer
05/11/2005, 12:12 AM
No! No more peace treaties, retracted statements and ceasefires!
Look at other regionals threads with over 200 posts of acceptable trashtalk.
I wanna hear some cocky pointless statements over this regionals and I don't want to see anyone back down.
We gotta do this right!
I want to see people get mean, get angry and start bragging whose Dunsparce is bigger.
Now that I have said all that I will start us off. *Adds 61st card*
MY Deck HAS MORE CARDS THAN YOURS, I'M GONNA WIN! What Now guys???
:cool:

Articjedi
05/11/2005, 08:15 AM
cool, I made top 8 and I still haven't decided on the deck. I'll just use that emerald theme deck I got through less than legal means, hehehe.

Are the unlimited tournament and draft stuff at different times? *Has a feeling will say no but hopes not*

Can my Poliwhirl participate in any of the festivities? I could give it a deck and it would beat anyone who opposes it, based on the fact that anyone who has to sit across from a plushy w/ a deck would go insane trying to read its ultimate poker face. The only problem is that Poliwhirl has a nasty habit of Doubleslaping any one who talks smack about it or tries to abuse it, so Poliwhirl would proboly get DQ'ed before anything even gets started (Just ask anyone at the Lakewood, WA ex-Emerald Prerelease, they know what I'm talking about.) :)

If not, Poliwhirl and I will rule the booster draft together, hahahaha.

puyallup_phantom

P.S. If you haven't figured it out by now, Poliwhirl is a toy. If not, I guess I'm not the only crazy one around here.

puyallup_phantom
05/18/2005, 07:18 PM
Why does the GB Tourney have a cutoff at 70. It doesn't make any sense. I have my Pokemon trained at 50, 75, and 100 because that make sense to me (multiples of 25 rule). Don't get me wrong, my starters are in the 60's from FR and will be ready to beat people down, but I don't like the idea of not being able to use the team I raised for battle tower in FR/Ruby and am currently using in the Frontier on Emerald (pure evil if I do say so myself)

Also, what's wrong with Shining Pokemon. A person has no advantage using one, they just look cool, like my Blue-eyed Beedrill.

Maybe it just sounds like I'm complaining, but I have my reasons. My Poliwhirl would like an explanation, but if your not allowed to speak to Pokemon, I'll read the message instead.

puyallup_phantom

If you want to see the Beedrill, find me at Regionals. My binder will say, THE PUYALLUP PHANTOM on the front.

I don't log on for a day (Thursday) and all the sudden we gots people talking about retracting retractations and being called terrible and Canadian. Hey birdman, give dances with numbers a year and you'll see him become American and sort of good. Anyone who plays Pokemon @ Covington should recognize I'm a sports fan (even though school interferes with Pokemon). Anyway, if you're going to compare someone w/ something, use Pokemon for that insult, like"Your about as useful as a Hitmonchan w/ its arms tied behind its back!" Thank you for your time.

Next time, lets try talking Pokemon, I mean, isn't that what this place was created for.

puyallup_phantom

The previous "rant" was paid for in any way by THE puyallup_phantom and his millions of fans.

P.S. I don't like to rant or insult people, but sometimes, a phantom has to take matters into his own hands.

And btw the Expos were the perfect comparison and you know it if your quite the sports fan.

BTW, Hitmonchan was awesome in the day but I guess you couldn't see him through your ghostly shadow. :wink:

keebler is Stuart yes? Also miltank isn't a Pokemon. No such Pokemon as miltank. I know Miltank though. He probaly got mixed up. Anyways no one but me is getting that NintendoDS and winning the unlimited tournament. My awesome deck that's good... And wins and beats people... But didn't Brian like die? X_X In otherwords I thought he doesn't come to the tournaments anymore. If he does though I want to see more out of him. I want him to break the table with the computer on it. Yeah. It would be so awesome.

The day will not be complete if Brian doesn't break a table. I may let him go by with just breaking a chair though....maybe.

I would just like to point out to the birdy (Pidgeotto Trainer), that the Expos are NO LONGER IN MONTREAL (Sorry, but I had to raise my voice to get this point across). The Expos are now in our nation's capital, and are the Nationals. We should no longer greet them with hostility, but embrace the fact that they have left "the dark side" and come to fight the good fight.

"Now if only we could ship Steinbrenner and the Yankees to Canada," the Phantom thinks to himself.

By the way, the Hitmonchan crack was not in reference to any cards, but to how useful a real Hitmonchan would be with its arms tied behind its back. Come folks, lets have a little imagination.

Also, @ regionals, I plan to have tons of Pokemon Eggs hatched, so if your looking for a Pokemon, or just want someone else's ID # for the Lilycove Lottery, you gots to find The Puyallup Phantom.

I am out!

P.S. #2 I by no means am insulting Canadians w/ this message. Canada has some of the best nature in on the face of the planet and is a good place for someone to go a spend a week of relaxing!

No, I didn't fail, it was just so lame that I didn't bother replying to it. And plus, I thought it was like a mistake or something, maybe you were just viewing the Norcal regionals topic IDK. LAME ALTOGETHER ROSS =(

Phantom thinks his Blastoise should hit Birdface with HydroCannon, then follow up with a Thunder from Raikou, Raichu, Lanturn, Electrode, and Sir Zapdos of the PowerPlant. Hahahahahahaha! That will teach the Birdy to be a traitor. Or, we could clip the birdy's wings, that should be fun!

Hello all...

With the final annoucement of the attendance at the Mid Atlantic Regionals in Pennsylvania, of 143 by Rainbow Richards on another link...

The NW Regionals is happy to annouce it had the highest attendance of all US Regionals with 147.. :clap: :thumb:

Next year we definatelly need one in Seattle/Spokane/somewhere near here.
