    Will there be a Pokémon character distribution?

    When you attend the Pokémon National Championships, you'll be able to get a powerful Metagross like the one Masters Division player Ray Rizzo used to win the Pokémon World Championships! In addition to having the same move set, this Level-45 Shiny Metagross shares the same Nature, Ability, and held item as the one on Ray's championship team. Remember that you don't need to participate in the tournament to get this Shiny Metagross. Just be sure to bring your system from the Nintendo DS family or your Nintendo 3DS system, and your copy of Pokémon Black Version, Pokémon White Version, Pokémon Black Version 2, or Pokémon White Version 2 game. The distribution will begin at noon.

    Which other Pokémon events take place this same weekend?

    In addition to National Championships there will be several TCG events on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at RuhrCongress. While participation at the German TCG National Championship is for German residents only all other events are open for international players! You may earn additional Championship points at the “International Premier Event” or team-up with other at the “International PokéCup Team event”. Also there is a TCG league and TCG demos for participants willing to learn the Trading Card Game.

    Hi Lia,

    sorry for the late response but there will be no Championship Points for the International Event. Only six players attended, so the tournament was no longer sanctioned and we had to cancel it.

    well I think its redicouous
    Because we asked before it started if we get the points
    They said yes and now its NO
    They paired by hand and would upload it by hand

    We traveled 300 km vice versa for those points
    Thanx for nothing then

    The point in having these kind of tournaments is to get people the last CPs for worlds(just like US will have at their nats). There is just so bad that the participants won't get points now. I almost considered going from Sweden for my last 50 points.

    Yes thats indeed the point
    My friend needed the points for Worlds
    And thats not all the waiting for a response
    But I hope thewy will put it in the add next time that with not eonough players NO Points

    I don't know who told you otherwise but you should know that no tournaments with less that 8 players can be sanctioned and so count through the Premier program
