Cool. I'll enter. And living in Seattle, it'll be easy for me to get to the Space Needle, as I see it just about every week. Of course, I might not make it that far, but I can still go and watch.

Oh man! I'll never get to Seattle! =( No fair! Oh well, I'll find a way.

And, that's not enough time to train! Looks like I'd better start now!

Thoughts: =(

EDIT: I'm confused. So Round 1 is a quiz, and the rest are Pokemon Battles?

I'm screwed. Sucky-slow internet connections around here. At least the ones I have access to other than this one (T3).

So anything "timed" stinks unless they download an applet and then return the scores from the applet -- of course then everybody on dsl will be returning scores while I'm still downloading the applet...

Ugh. Well, at least I get to go to events in the midwest...

Its to bad it has to work this way, biased in favor of fast connections. Poor people who have to use AOHell on top of slow connections!

With the way their sites often work, they will refuse to recognize a percentage of people who actually do have correct plugins loaded too. You can bet it's going to be written in flash

I'd never be able to go to Seattle, except if you can get free plane tickets to the US But I really want to go to the PokePark in Japan. So I'll just get updates of what's happening

Gah, stupid Britain, can't do anything from over here... stupid tiny rock...

Ah well, at least I can still buy Emerald once it's released, XP

Either way, this sounds like a nifty thing.
