For those who didn't see it, I was linked to someone to this: http://www.go-pokemon.com/op/premierevents/championshipseries/worlds/ So, EVERYWHERE but the United States is getting only one paid trip to Worlds (unless LDs help, I guess) through their Nationals. All ratings invites are just that, invites, no trip. The U.S. will get 8 in from Nats and 4 of them will recieve trips. Four guarenteed from the LCQ, and I counted 140 total invites, including LCQ and past winners. So, if there is 140 available invites, and a lot of players outside of the U.S. aren't able to attend Worlds and use their invite, I guess that would mean the Grinder could end up having a big number of invites to give away.
