Nintendo Australia has updated its original announcement regarding the Pokémon Video Game Australian National Championships with further details of registration and competition times:

• Perth (Supanova Pop Culture Expo) Sunday 30th June. Registration 10am, Competition 11am - 5pm

• Melbourne (The Deakin Edge, Federation Square) Saturday 6th July. Registration 10am, Competition 11am - 5pm

• Brisbane (Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, Mezzanine Level 1) Sunday 7th July. Registration 10am, Competition 11am - 5pm

• Adelaide (AVCon Anime and Video Game Convention) Saturday 13th July. Registration 10am, Competition 11am - 5pm

• Sydney (Crystal Palace, Luna Park) Sunday 14th July. Registration 10am, Competition 11am - 5pm

The official competition rules have also been posted on Nintendo.com.au. The rules appear to be a modified version of Pokemon.com's Play! Pokémon Tournament Rules. A notable difference is that Nintendo Australia is permitting players to change their team lineups between rounds.

Also of note is the fact that point 1 states that "Pokémon Black Version 2, Pokémon White Version 2, Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version Game Cards can be used", however point 7.1 contradicts this and states "Only Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 Game Cards are permitted for use.". It is recommended that hopeful competitors adhere to rule 7.1 to avoid disappointment if Pokémon Black and Pokémon White end up not being allowed on the day.
