Can we have a Digimon World Championships?

Last weekend the 2016 Pokémon World Championships in San Fransisco came to a close, and it was an intensely emotional moment for Video Game Championship fans all around. After years of nonstop practice and competition, Wolfe Glick finally took home the gold, and for the first time in several years the USA seized first place in every VGC division.

It wasn’t the best year for the VGC as a whole–tournament diversity was at an all-time low thanks to the legendary rules, infinite weather battles dominated–but the final games were tense and unpredictable. I watched all three days and was numb to the Big Six teams showing up early in the tournament, but the top cut kept throwing out surprises. (Raichu!?)

And so my thoughts have turned to the question, can there be a Digimon World Championships series?

The closest thing we have in modern times to the former D-1 Grand Prix are the DIGIMADO conventions, which meet four times a year in Japan holding miscellaneous competitions and are only attended by ~40 persons per event. These days DIGIMADO is lucky to see six people in the Sleuth tournaments, whereas their past Decode tournament had sixteen entrants, enough to have a real eight-man top cut. We’re facing the Super Smash Bros. dilemma, having to single out one game among an entire franchise that’s representative of the best it can be as a multiplayer experience.

What we’re about yo

Hey little eggs!
I haven’t properly introduced myself yet. My name is Dj, I’m 21 years old and have loved pokemon since I discovered it in 1999. My older cousin gave
me the original gameboy, (yes the crazy old grey one lol) a copy of Pokemon Yellow, and the rest is history. I’ve collected the cards, the action figures, you name it…

Im obsessed with Spark and all of his magical cinnamon, sunshine, cuteness, and you'll find that most of my posts are of him. I try and cover most of the pokemon world though, it just so happens that he has my heart currently.

This blog was created to express my absolute adoration for all things pokemon, and with the help of my new mods, we are going to grow into some thing amazing! Thank you all so much for the recent follows! Share with your friends and tell them about this amazing community, we’d love to have them. The page will be undergoing some construction over the next few days.

MAKE SURE TO - send us asks, submissions, and cookies!
In the future you can expect:
-Giveaways
-Contests
- Sun/Moon news
-and much more! <3

Trying to keep my spirits high

To all the legitimate players who played at worlds this year, I’m glad to hear at least some of you had a good experience. Sounds like you had a lot of fun :D In the wider scope though, they had Ray Rizzo commentating, Wolfe fucking Glick is the Masters division champ, and there are dozens of other top VGC players who freely admit to genning their Pokémon. The integrity of competitive Pokémon is in the bloody toilet right now, and quite frankly it makes me physically ill. Looking forward, I’m clinging to the hope that Gamefreak will make Sun & Moon far more tamper proof, and that tPCI will depart from their current policy of feigned ignorance and complacency toward the illegitimate players within the VGC elite.

Thank you and congrats Wolfe Glick and Pokemon VGC 2016 rules for finally letting me see the day that my favorite pokemon Rayquaza enter in the hall of fame in VGC Masters.  

This would’ve been completed earlier if it weren’t for the burdens of having my wisdom teeth extracted on that same day.
