Japan Cup + Croagunk C-Gear Skin [UPD]

The Japanese Global Link site is hosting a tournament! Named the ‘Japan Cup’, the tournament is in commemoration of the first birthday of the Japanese release of Pokemon Black & White and, as such, you can only enter if you’re a player in Japan (Wow. Can’t believe it’s been almost a year…). The tournament consists of Double Battles, with the use of Unova Pokemon only, excluded Victini, Reshiram, Zekrom and Kyurem. Applications for the tournament can be found at the official Daisuki Club website from September 9th to September 14th, while the tournament itself runs from September 15th to the 19th. With the results being made public on September 28th. All participants will recieve the Pikachu 2011 Worlds C-Gear skin that was distributed to Europe and America earlier this month but, there’s only 10,000 available spots, so if you just so happen to live in Japan and love competitive battling, be sure to sign up quick!

In US Global Link news, the Poison Jab Croagunk C-Gear skin that was distrubuted to Japan earlier this year has finally made its way to the states! The skin is available from now until March 1st, 2012, but, to get it you will need a password that is in the August issue of Nintendo Power magazine. The password hasn’t found its way to the internet yet, but stick with us and we’ll post it as soon as it becomes known! The password is NPCGEAR.

P.S. I actually really like the Croagunk C-Gear skin, and now that it’s gone state side it’s only a matter of time before the Piplup C-Gear makes it’s way over! 😀
