The Beginning Cup tournament and a new C-Gear skin

Another WiFi tournament for the Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 games was also announced on the the Pokémon Global Link website, called The Beginning Cup. This tournament will be held from August 24th until August 26th. People who want to participate must be registered to the Pokémon Daisuki Club and Pokémon Global Link sites and can sign up for the tournament from August 20th to August 23rd. The registration will operate on a first-come-first-serve basis. There are three age brackets, Juniors (for those born after 2001), Seniors (for those born from 1997 to 2000) and Masters (for those born before 1996). The Beginning Cup is a Double Battle tournament and the eligible Pokémon include all the Pokémon from the new Isshu dex in the Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 games with the exception of Victini, Reshiram, Zekrom, Kyurem, Keldeo, Meloetta and Genesect.
To commemorate the new WiFi tournament that will be held, a new C-Gear skin will be distributed to all Japanese players of Pokémon Black 2 and White 2. The design is inspired by the place where the Pokémon World Championships 2012 will be held, Hawaii. It will be available from August 20th until September 25th. Our B2W2 C-Gear page has been updated with the new information.
