Shiny Eevee Download for Worlds Qualifiers in Japan; Tournament Rules

Shiny Eevee

Players who participate in Worlds 2010 qualifiers in Japan starting in January will receive a shiny Eevee. Only players who bring HeartGold and SoulSilver, the only games allowed in the qualifiers, will be able to download it. The Lugia and Ho-Oh promos in the previous news story will also be given out to those who participate.

Last year, players were able to download a shiny Milotic, which was later available in America. Chances are we will receive Eevee for our video game qualifiers here as well.

Additionally, the rules for the qualifying tournaments have revealed that two Legendary Pokemon will be allowed per team. Legendary Pokemon allowed are Mewtwo, Lugia, Ho-Oh, Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza, Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina (both Formes). Banned Legendaries are event-only Pokemon, being Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Deoxys, Phione, Manaphy, Darkrai, Shaymin, and Arceus.

According to Mike Liesik, head of TPCi’s Organized Play video game division, the rules for the American qualifying tournaments have not been formed yet and will not be released until the end of the year. Thus, the above rules will likely not apply to any country outside of Japan.
