The time has come to set the niceties aside and re-establish a rivalry which can only be paralleled to Red and Blue themselves. It’s time for our second annual QUT vs UQ Pokémon Championship and to see which Club really is the very best, like no one ever was. After an incredible championship last year which saw both universities tied until the final round, it’s time for QUT to put the trophy back on the table and fight for it on UQ’s home soil. You will spend the day overlooking UQ lakes from the Advanced Engineering Building. Please arrive at 9.30am for a 10am championship kick off!

This championship is the opportunity for each Club’s best battlers to go head to head and prove their talents (as well as luckiness, let’s be honest). We will also be running side activities, including Pokémon Pictionary, TCG friendlies, Pokkén Tournament, Showdown Randoms friendlies, Pokémon Monopoly, and a colouring competition.

Attendance alone will put you in the draw to win a lucky door prize – and even better, the more activities you participate in the more raffle tickets you will earn! The winner of the championship will receive a prize and a trophy, and there will also be a prize for the colouring competition winner.

The battle format will be 6 v 6 singles from your 3DSes using Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire cartridges only. We will be playing the rounds in the Swiss tournament style. A registration form will be posted in the days leading up to the event, so we can ensure that each university is even in representation. We kindly ask that you only register if you actually intend to attend the event, as non-attendance causes last minute administrative issues which could otherwise be avoided. You can find the ruleset we will be running here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1BvLUBsb9HUt70lUZrdJaWE-2tZRhvnXI5vcDt4kkElE. Please ensure you comply with the rules, as we will be checking your teams in the morning. Team swaps throughout the day are strictly prohibited.

And finally (and arguably most importantly) – lunch. We will be catering Pizza Caffé for lunch in exchange for a gold coin donation at the door. PFCUQ also sells cans of soft drink for $2 each. Our lunch break will run from 12.30pm till 1.30pm. If pizza isn’t your style, there are limited food options available at UQ on the weekend, including Indian and Burger Urge.

Please also note that you must be a member of PFCUQ or QUT Pokémon to participate. Member sign-ups will be available on the day. PFCUQ is $3 and QUT Pokémon is $5 (includes membership to QUT’s anime and manga society).
