I was at WI States this past weekend and was able to get some information regarding regionals. The event will be held at Misty Mountain (http://www.mistymountaingames.com/) in Madison. It is going to be held only 5 days after the release of Ex Emerald. The people from My Parent's Basement will be running the event. They'll have more info about the event as we get closer to it.

Fantine- it's approx. 70 miles from Rockford to there via I-90.

I thought it was less than that? I remember going up to UW for a football game at around 10 am and coming back in the evening, not too late. Either way, it's close enough that I'll be there if my work doesn't skru me over...

Wow, that's great for us that it's so close (an hour from my house), :clap: but I feel for the people in the Dakotas and Nebraska.... sooooooo far for them. I believe that's the same location we were at when Devin won his trip to the ECSTS, so it's familiar. But I admit I'm a bit scared about the folks from My Parent's Basement running it tho, after all I heard about States. Well, hopefully lessons will have been learned and it'll run smoothly! :thumb:

who's the TO for this one? Is Vince going to play, judge, or TO this one?

Either way, I'm there (depending on work, etc)

Pooka

Supposedly the people from Manitowoc are running this one as well. That really isn't a good thing. They had a bunch of problems at the last one. People in wrong age divisions, problems with time limits, etc. I don't think these are the right people to have running a tournament the calibur of a Regional, but we'll see.

meganium45
03/24/2005, 01:19 PM
Sorry kiddies. To come to my regional, you are going to have to go to Memphis.

I will be up at this one, to play, and not to run it, or judge or the like.

I have offered my services to help those running it, and will be happy to do so on the day of the event, or before if asked.



In any event....look forward to seeing you ALL there!

Nah, Vince your ok but Im sure our reps in this region can take care of it.....lol


I believe it will be a number of PTO's and TO's from the region, so dont worry, My Parents might be running it, but not to the full extent as they did for states, plus alot more room and judges this time around so they will do fine.

See ya

This topic was premature, I think you should change the subject. The 14 was the initial date and if you know, the 14 is also the great lakes regionals as well. They are working on getting the date for this one changed. The location should be the same though.

Rulemaster
03/25/2005, 10:48 PM
I hear they have some great fried catfish in memphis vince. that one is like an 11 hour drive for me, so i dunno. but i'll see all of the rest of you at madison on the 14th.

HypnosProjectHQ
03/26/2005, 06:01 AM
Yep.... Madison. An hour from Oconomowoc.... YES! For once there is a major tournies within an hour drive, right in my backyard. Brookfield players, PM me or E-mail me about meeting at my house right here. Its only 5 minutes off I-94, so it isn't out of the way at all. And yes, I'll be at league this coming Wednesday. Watch out for Premier Trainer Krenke.

(Hey. They should name one of those Battle Frontier Brains after me. I see it now.... Krenke the Brain. Heh!)

this sounds like a fun tournament. Unfortunatly for me my little sister just quit pokemon as of a few hours ago. She says theres not enough girls her age playing it. Well Ill be there and hopefully I can convince her to come.

Kevin

HypnosProjectHQ
03/28/2005, 04:36 AM
Aww... that's sad. You should convince her that it doesn't matter what other people do. She should do what she likes. Also, that if she is the only girl her age who plays that she could make a name for herself.

PokeMama
03/28/2005, 07:33 PM
Awww we've gotta talk some sense into her! She's a great player, we don't want to lose her. Remind her about Rachael and Athena and Alexis too. We need to have your family at Regionals... 3 age groups for ya!

Ice'Cold
03/29/2005, 06:33 AM
Not that many girls play pokemon to begin with.

meganium45
03/29/2005, 07:56 AM
Yeah, but those that do are some of the best.

Look around the midwest, especially at the younger divisions...

Jessica L-N, Heather T, Natasha C, Taylor M, Anna S., ...dare I say, Kathy S (hey, she beat me), Nancy L, Heather L, man, a WHOLE BUNCH, and those are just those that are winning!!! There are a lot of other young ladies I know who play for the fun of the game.

Don't dismiss them so easily!!

M45

Ice'Cold
03/29/2005, 10:58 AM
I'm not dismissing them, just pointing out the fact that the majority of players are male. Not the fact that we definitely need more girls to play.

Fantine
03/29/2005, 07:17 PM
She feels sorta left out at our local competition because the 2 local girls that are her age left because there father is too competitive. He thinks if they cant win, dont bother going.

Where u not saying something like that before states. And im pretty sure Team Cheese Head only had 1 person in the top 8. And he scrubbed out in the first round of the top cut.
You guys just keep talking a big game. and the only one of you that can back it up is pooka.

CHARIZARD MASTERTRAINER
03/31/2005, 01:57 PM
Yea, I was a bit quiet, wasn't I......No matter, things change, I hope you know that my skills have improved and just because I didnt make it after top 8, doesnt mean that will happen again or that it might, but im pretty sure i'll get in an advance. Remember this time, the tourney will be based of luck....whose gonna get what, will you have the right cards for your deck, especially since we have a new set coming up, which im guessing many of you are saying is really sucky, i could agree, but not 100%. I wouldn't be surprised to find something good among that pile of promos and QCP cards. I am planning to pay up and order enough boxes to get what i need......
I dont also doubt the fact that most of the Team will do our best to make up for WI States, this is one of the big ones, we are all sure to get it right....

See ya all there!!!

Shhhh. don't tell the folks the St. Louis people are coming to this one in Mass...let them not see us coming...

OK, here we go!

Iowa is coming because Drackmere, their TO, is helping organize the event. I'm sure when he comes, he'll bring a couple of his players along with him. I'll get confirmation from him via AIM today or tomorrow on this.

HypnosProjectHQ
04/01/2005, 05:03 AM
Talked to Drackmere online already this morning.


i know there are some players who are having their parents look into it (making arrangements for the weekend, getting off of work, etc), but like I said, no one has said that they are guaranteed to be there

Most likely he will know which players will be going sometime later this month. Thats all for now!

We are proud that you took 1st at WI States, which reminds me, you get to have your own card created...lol. I totally forgot about that new policy for the team, anyway, we could work out the details on what type of card it will be, and you will be the only one to get it, with the exception of me, of course, since im the one who is going to make it...lol.

Hey. We don't need to be hatin' now. Just because they play more for fun and just enjoy playing the game aren't as competitive about it doesn't mean you can count them out. That just isn't fair in the least bit. I really can't stand the war of the teams and states anymore. we are all just individuals playing the game for whatever reasons we may have.

HypnosProjectHQ
04/03/2005, 06:14 AM
100 or more, most likely. With people from 4 states (Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri) coming that we know of, there will be a huge tournout. There were 74 players at WI States and that was only with Wisconsin and Illinois players - not even all of them.

I created TM WI to get people all over the state connected and for everyone to know each other and keep lines of communication opened, so people can help each other with their gaming skills, make trades, organize any events, and basically have fun....
Thats about it.....winning tourneys is just an added bonus for team morale as well as those who took it all the way!!!!

I don't know what exactly is in Emerald at all, but I'm sure it will a bit. But look at EX: Deoxys... it didn't change the metagame one bit. We've still got all the same decks in tier 1 that we had the week after the EX: Team Rocket Returns prereleases. That set was so good... I really don't think anything could compare at this point.

Rulemaster
04/08/2005, 12:06 PM

im playing a poison/flying deck (yanma/beautifly/dark weezing)

Yeah. There really aren't ay other sets in the same league as Base Set and Team Rocket Returns.

We're down to about 4 weeks away now. Who is not ready for this? I know I won't be ready until that day being that it will be one of my first few 15+ performances.

I'm still trying to figure out what I'm going to play. it's really weird coming back to Pokemon and feeling like I don't know whaT I'm doing. I've taken breaks before, but a 2 year break is hard to get over.

Regardless.

Other than going to a VERY occasional league (maybe 2-4 times a year), I didn't play from the time the first gym set came out until this past May. Took me a couple months to get a good amount of cards to work with and deckbuild with, but it wasn't too terribly hard to get back into.

Check me if Im wrong guys, but I think the cheapest "good" deck to play is probably the breloom/scramble and time machine comboed with something like magneton or togetic or both. Its a real cheap strategy, the cards arent hard to get and it can really take advantage of the weaknesses of some other decks. EX Battle Stadium has alot of cards you might want, dunsparce and celio+tv reporter among other things. The two good theme decks in my opinion are the wishmaker from HL with jirachi and the Charmeleon FR/LG deck.

Madison, WI 53716

Doors open at 10:00 AM
Tourney starts at Noon

Ugh. Why can't the start time be 1 PM. Its gonna be hard to get to, but I'll make it. Jas was thinking about coming with us, but it starts an hour too early for her to come because of soccer. I'll try and make some arrangements, but we'll see.

However, one way or another, I'll be there. I'm not sure if my parents are driving yet or if I'm gonna need to ask someone else for a ride. It is under an hour from here to Madison, though, so I hope my mom will just drive so at least Josh can come with us.

Start cannot be 1 PM because...

This will be at the VERY LEAST an 8 hour event!

If we start at 10, we have a prayer of being done by 7, so my sons and I can get back to the hotel and swim (I know that is what the PTOs were worried about)

Note, my events for regionals start at 10 am as well! That is the BEST time to do a non-Sunday event, and those who try to cram these on a Sunday, are, well, kidding themselves.

I commend the staff for this decision, and offer them a hearty POOOKA for their wisdom!

EDIT--I forgot, us Wisconsin players have to ride cows to all the events we go to. Maybe 4 hours is a low estimate then.... :tongue:

And I tell most people I play (as in anyone who is more than a passing aquaintance), because I am a gaming geek, anime fan, etc. Granted, there are a few posters in my room I might be tempted to take down... mostly because they have been up for a while and/or I put them up because I got them as a gift from a friend or family member and didn't want to appear ungrateful (and when I find them again, the "Virtual Boy" 3D glasses makes Ash's poster look cool. @_@)

I was kind of hiding the fact that I play pokemon and that from my college buddies (first year college student), but I ran a CC on campus and when I brought the big box of supplies for the CC, the guy next door saw me bring it in and HAD to see what's inside. Then he goes down the hall going 'hey everyone, j-wizzle plays pokemon!' Some people think I'm too old to play but when you tell them you can earn scholarships and that, they can 'respect' the fact that I play and that. Now it's like the first thing I tell anybody. Anytime I meet a girl I just say right away, there is one 'childish' thing about me...I play pokemon. It's really not that big of a deal.

If you're afraid to tell someone about, worried that they will think less of you or in the case of a girl not go out with you or whatever, then they aren't for you. If pokemon is a part of you, you shouldn't hide it. Now if you sleep with a stuffed Pikachu or something, that type of thing I can understand hiding. :tongue:

I just might be going after all. Apparently there are a bunch of gardens around Madison and my mother and father will probably drop me and my sisters off and spend the day looking at gardens. I would never be able to spend the whole day doing that.

There will be, but I bet 33% of the decks there will be Ludicargo variants...

Fantine
05/05/2005, 08:06 PM
I dont understand why. 100 Hp is just so easy to kill. I would be thrilled to see tons of Ludicargo.

Kevin

Ludicargo isnt the only good new deck...

Fantine
05/05/2005, 08:24 PM
I think there is just so much to play that it will be exciting just to see what everyone is playing. Vileplume ex might be strong still also.

Umm you do relize that you cant use ne of the powers right. Is there something im missing here bc that just seem very counter productive.

Didn't you hear, Dave? It's the new big thing. Dark Dragonite/Battle Frontier is unbeatable.

Anyway, yeah I'm going for sure. :D

90% of my testing circle is playing Ludicago at regionals. The deck simply has an advantage over everything when TecHed correctly.

Don't forget to preregister! You get a free booster just for registering by Wednesday, and you don't have to wait in the ugly registration lines there. Win-win, as far as I'm concerned!

Its a proven fact that is the most powerful. There is no deck that can beat it. Ludicargo is overrated.

This Friday is National Let's Root On Jon Schweppe As He Dominates Regionals day. The entire ALEDO HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL TEAM is wearing POKEMON SHIRTS to cheer me on. Can you even COMPETE with that? I've definitely got the cheering squad, now all I need is the mad skillz.

05/09/2005, 04:38 PM
You haven't played for like TWO YEARS. I'd be surprised if you did better than 0-3 drop (and no, 1-3 drop isn't better). =D

Oh and Fantine, do you have any idea what's going on? Battle Frontier and Dark Dragonite don't work together, lol. Just read Battle Frontier a little closer and you'll see why.

Fantine

Pooka, I've played quite a bit recently actually. Just not in a real tournament. Apprentice does wonders.

That said, I still betcha I go 2-3 drop, WHICH IS BETTER than 0-3 drop.

I bet Regionals will be a blast! So many people there. Wonder if there will be nametags that we could write our screen names on. It'd be cool to know who's who, since there are a ton of you I've never met yet. And it's been fun wondering what decks will be played. I like that the environment seems all fresh right now. Kinda exciting being in the first of the Regionals don't ya think?

I have plenty of Emerald cards for trade (Battle Frontier, ect.). I'll try to get there early enough to trade and play some games.

I've ran into the largest dilemma yet. The brakes on the van are shot. I'll be able to make it to league tonight, but don't expect me to be at Regionals unless I can find a ride for 2 (my brother and I), possibly 3 (maybe Jas).

I'm begging anyone, especially the Ennocentis or Spriggs if they have the room to contact me. I'll be glad enough to chip in for gas. I'm sorry I'm such a pest for rides all the time, but this one I just have nothing to do with. My mom was gonna take us, but...

So please, if any of you could get back to me ASAP. Thanks.

I'm honored to be listed at 146:1. That really makes me feel special ;)

By the way, GIACOMO WAS 50:1. Therefore, I'm Giacomo. Team Chicago is like Smarty Jones... well that was last year, but anyway they're on a roll only THEY CAN'T DO THE TRIPLE CROWN. Not that that makes any sense... Okay I give up on my whole horse racing/pokemon analogy.

I'm set for Saturday. Good luck to all!
