The Fincastle Pokemon Gym will host its 2nd Battle Roads tournament this Sunday at the Fincastle Community Center, which is right beside the Botetourt County Circuit Courthouse on Main Street in Fincastle. The Autumn Battle Roads series is the first set of Premier events sanctioned by Play!Pokemon. The series is the first opportunity of the 2012-13 season to earn the championship points necessary to earn invitations to next year’s World Championships. Registration is from noon – 1:00pm, with play starting at 1:30pm. The event is free to enter. Deck registration sheets are required for entry. We suggest that you fill out a deck list ahead of time, but deck sheets are available on site. If you plan on filling one out on site, come early enough to complete it before registration closes at 1:00pm. The format for the event is Modified Format (sets listed below). For newer players or players competing in their first tournament, check out this post for some handy tips to help you prepare.
The Modified Format includes the following sets:
Black & White

In addition to the prizes listed above, there will also be door prizes available in each age group. These events are lots of fun and often sport some of the most creative decks, as many people are testing out ideas for later events. Of course, there is no league at the library, so come on down to the Community Center and battle with us! See you Sunday!
