From www.nintendo.com.au:

Members
As a nintendo.com.au member, if you sign up to receive SMS messages from Nintendo you will receive an SMS invitation and an exclusive Pokémon Diamond & Pearl gift at the Tour.

Pokémon Battle Challenge
Are you ready for the new Challenges in Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl? Test your skills against other Trainers in our video game challenges! The Pokémon Battle Challenge will see Trainers battle it out 1-on-1 using their own Pokémon Diamond or Pokémon Pearl game. Register early on tour days as places are limited.

Pokémon Battle Challenge Rules
In order to qualify for the Pokémon Battle Challenge you must bring your copy of either Pokémon Diamond or Pokémon Pearl. Your game must fulfill the following criteria:
- Game must be saved at a PokéCentre of any Town
- Must have at least 3 Pokémon in your team
- Pokémon within saved team cannot be greater than Level 50
- No more than one of the same Pokémon is allowed on a team
- No profanities allowed as names, if any offensive words are found on your game you may be disqualified

The battle will take place in Single Battle, Standard Cup. Standard Cup rules apply. No Special Pokémon allowed. Special Pokémon include: Celebi, Deoxys, Diagla, Groudon, Jirachi, Kyogre, Ho-Oh, Lugia, Manaphy, Mewtwo, Mew, Palkia and Rayquaza. Each battle will go for a maximum of 10 minutes. If your game does not adhere to the above criteria, you unfortunately may forfeit your place in the Battle.

More Fun
Each event will become a Pokémon fan's paradise with interactive game play stations showing off the brand new games, as well as other brand new Nintendo DS games. Plus there will be a Pokémon Trading Card Game play area, and a special Touch Generations area - for everyone to enjoy. Brush up on your Pokémon knowledge, as Pokémon Trivia will be happening during the Events. There will be heaps of giveaways as well! Don't forget to bring your Nintendo DS and multiplayer Nintendo DS games (such as Animal Crossing, Nintendogs, Diddy Kong Racing DS) to play multiplayer games with other fans.

Yay, the next best thing to an actual Pokemon event. Too bad they're not giving out any Pokemon, but I'll definitely be going. ^^

Australia is probally the only country that hasn't even had a Pokemon Event yet, so be quiet and wait for your turn. God, Australia doesn't even have the game yet and all you go around with your Pokemon DP version saying "Ohhh why doesn't our country have events." Just stay quiet and wait for your turn, god.

Sarah's Edit: I agree with what you're saying TE, but you might not want to phrase it quite like that ^^; *edited*

Man, you Australians are so lucky you have the big Connection Tour thing! All America had was a celebration thing in New York. You guys actually get to do battles and tournaments and stuff.

Yeah I have to admit, this time we're pretty lucky ^^

Omg can't WAIT! Looking at the rules, you'll be able to use uxie, mesprit, azelf, and cresselia so I'm going to be expecting them, especially cresselia!

Yeah, but they don't mention Arceus, Heatran or Giratina either, so I'm not sure if that's just the incomplete list of banned Pokemon (since it says "Special Pokemon include" instead of "Special Pokemon are") or if you're actually allowed to use them. I don't know much about the DP Pokemon, but if Dialga and Palkia are banned, then shouldn't Giratina be banned too?

If you noticed, it says no pokemon greater than the level of 50. So by any means. Giratina is already banned due to the fact that its a level 70 pokemon. :3

Ah, okay, I didn't know it was at level 70. ^^

But then again, Mewtwo and Rayquaza are at level 70 too and they're both listed.

If the Nintendo people saw anyone with a low levelled legendary, or one that can only be obtained through event that so far hasn't been given out, then I'm sure they'd disqualify the person for cheating. They wouldn't allow hacked Pokemon and stuff in.
