This weekend and next weekend, we will be holding State championships, where we will be competing for entry into our very own Pokémon Video Game National Championships, held in PAX Australia, right here in Melbourne!
Ever since Worlds started in 2009, I have been campaigning long and hard for Australia to get a fair go in Worlds, and a long last my labours, and those of many other like-minded fans, have paid off!
Needless to say, I WILL be participating in States. At my skill level the odds are slim that I'll make Nationals, but I will nonetheless enjoy the atmosphere, and the fact that I have achieved a lifelong goal!
One life goal down, three to go!
