    For anyone that's been sleeping under a rock for the past 2 days, the Pokemon World Championship has been going on in Kona, Hawaii.

    And less than 30 minutes ago, the final round came to a finish, with the following people winning the highest title of Pokemon World Champion:

    Junior:
    Jun Hasebe (Japan)

    Senior:
    Jeremy Scharff-Kim (USA)

    Master:
    Tom Roos (Finland)



    Congratulations to all the winners!

    Lastly, this World Championship also saw several very interesting occurances. In no particular order, they are:
    • Hiroki Yano becomes the first person to make the Finals in 2 seperate World Championships (he got 1st in Juniors last year, and got 2nd in Juniors this year).
    • Half of the Top4 players (6/12) came from a single country (Japan).
    • Tsuguyoshi Yamoto becomes only the second Master player to make the Top4 twice (the other being Jeremy Maron).
    • Jeremy Maron and Jason Klackzynski are now the only Master players to win Worlds one year, and not make the cut in a subsequent year.
    • Jeremy Scharff-Kim is now the 3rd World Champion to come from the state of Washington (after Mindy Lambkee, Juniors Champ in 2002, and Stuart Benson, Senior Champ in 2005).

    Congrats to Steffen From (DK) if anyone derserved this good a place in the tournament its him..
    Ive seen him test an tweak his deck for ours playing loads of battles to decide wether a single card is bether for a deck than another.
    Ive played him several times in several tounaments and his play is nearly allways flawless.
    Theres no douth in my mind that Steffen From is a magnificent pokemon player.
    By his great place in this tournament Steffen proved that Denmark is a strong pokemon nation. If youre the best in Denmark you aren't just some lucky player in a small country..Are you good in denmark youre good anywere.
    Steffen I were of course sad when you beat me in the final of the danish championsships a statement which you have repeted several years. However I also fell extremely happy when bthinking of your achivement and i only whish i were there to party with you and the other danes......

    See you MTG

    Congratulations everyone! Actually it works out rather nicely, three different regions represented by the winners. No-one can say Finnish players aren't the best of the best now!

    So Finland won after a huge ranking invitation battle among with other europeans by using ghost players...

    Good job to all of these from Europe. Totally deserved it :)

    Also, Congrats Andrew + Yee Wei... Asia/Pacific FTW

    Both Miska & Tom deserved their invites other way than being high on rankinglists, so plz let's not start this ghost-player-conversation again?

    Congrats to Denmark for the success of your players :)

    I Agree totally as far as i can see all or nearly all players from the countries accused of ghost players and boosting ranking by deals etc etc made at least 50% wins.....
    this comibined whit great number of top 16 and top 8 and top 3's should be enough to make the evil tounges shut up...

    I know that Austin Reed made T4 in Seniors last year and then made T8 this year in Masters. How many others have made such an awesome transition from one age division to the next? I applaud the accomplishment. And I congratulate ALL the players at Worlds no matter your age, country, deck, whatever because you really are the best.

    This thread is about Worlds Final Standings. It is not about Ghost players, or why country X is better than country Y.

    Any further off-topic posts will disapear.

    I think it's really interesting how the same 3 countries that won Worlds last year also won this year. Once again our new world champions come from three different countries, three different continents. ^_^

    Please let's think of individuals and not nations. Both Tom Roos and Miska Saari played amazingly well at Worlds, and that their country's OP Manager cheated other Finnish

    Please let's think of individuals and not nations. Both Tom Roos and Miska Saari played amazingly well at Worlds, and that their country's OP Manager cheated other Finnish players to Worlds using ghost players is not really relevant. Their OP Manager has of course given the country Finland a bad name in the Pokémon world (and that is a sad thing), but that doesn't mean everyone from Finland is a cheater.

    Back to back posts merged. The following information has been added:

    Now my wish goes out to Finland's OP Manager to not do the same mistake again next season, and clear Finland's name as just the home country of some great world-class players, not ghosts.
