    The nearest VGC is held in ~300 km radius from my house AND in a foregin country, so nope.


    Thinking about it, I'd love to see my parents faces when I tell them I want money to go to some big nerd PokeParty. :D

    I don't go, most events are held ages away from where I live and almost always when I'm on holiday, and I'm not really bothered with competitive battling, so I wouldn't go anyway.

    I haven't gone since most of the events aren't held anywhere near me and I've never competed because I know good and darned well I'd lose in the first round. Now, if one were held a little closer, I'd go as a spectator. But I'd never try my hand at battling--I just don't have the stones for it.

    I ♥ my female Bisharp.

    I play. For those of you who are worried about losing first round, I'm pretty sure it's not single-elimination this year. And yes, the metagame SUCKS. About half the teams I've faced in practice have had Cresselia, but it's still fun. It doesn't matter if you are a noob. My friend made Top 16 with a complete trash team once.

    It's still Single Elimination for Europe though.

    Also guys, the UK winner (following Ruben's disqualification) used a team entirely made of Pokémon that Gary/Blue used in the anime and games xD.

    I don't even know what a Play! Pokémon event is.

    The only competitive battling I've ever done was when HGSS were released. The Gamestop I preordered it at held a small tournament just for fun. I won my first round, but ended up losing the second, but only just barely. I've never had the opportunity to go to one of the official events.


    Waiting for Pokemon X and Pokemon Y since January, 2013!

    Competitive battle is one of my greatest enjoyments now in the Pokemon games, but no I haven't actually ever thought about entering the VGC because I generally just like to have the odd battle now and then on Random match up, or with friends that are also good battlers.

    Never been to one, mainly due to distance (I'm from South Florida, so I believe the closest one to there is in Atlanta, and the closest one to my current location in Michigan is in Indiana) and the fact that I'm not a competitive battler. I've kinda always wanted to go as a spectator sometime. It seems like something fun to do.

    No, but one always comes near to where I live so I may go to watch one time.

    I haven't visited any yet much less compete in one, but this year, seeing some days of the event held in weekends, I hope to visit there for once and see the competition.

    I don't know if it counts, but there are TGC tournaments and sometimes have VG battles on the site. But I already had spent my money on the TGC tournament. So, spectator.

    I would certainly like to give it a shot, only there aren't any VGC events in my country >_>
