Description
The 2015 International Challenge June Online Competition featured Trainers from around the world competing in Double Battles using nearly every known Pokémon. Pokémon acquired in Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby, or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire were permitted in the competition and the top players in each age division (based on Play! Pokémon regulations) received Championship Points, which contribute toward the chances of earning an invitation to the Pokémon World Championships. Players must have opted into the Play! Pokémon program and had a Player ID at the time the competition to be eligible for Championship Points.

The competition used the Double Battle format and players could register 4 to 6 of their level 1–100 Pokémon to their Battle Box. Pokémon automatically became Level 50 during battles. A 15-minute time limit for each match was automatically enforced in-game, beginning at the start of each battle. If the outcome had not been determined when the time limit expired, the game automatically applied tiebreakers to determine a winner. At the beginning of each battle, players had 90 seconds to select their Pokémon to battle with. At the beginning of each turn, players had 45 seconds to select a move or change Pokémon in battle. If a player had not made his or her selections at the end of this period, the game automatically made selections for the player. Players could battle up to 10 games per day of the competition. Any unplayed games would carry over to the following day.

Movie 18 Blog Updates with Seventh Scouting Report

The official Pokémon movie blog has updated. We have added a Scouting Report page and will update it with the translations as they are posted on the official blog. Translations of the new entry follows:

Location Scouting Report #7: Souks! Souks! Souks!



Later that evening, we crossed Dubai Creek as we collected material on the various souks.
"Souks" is what they call the markets here.
Some of them are quite modern, like the "World Trade Center Souk" we visited on our first day here, but this day we were going to visit souks that still carried the atmosphere of yesteryear.



Our first destination was "Old Souk"!
This is a souk lined with stores selling cloth and fabrics, and is also known under the name "Textile Souk".
It was also filled with souvenir stores, and we had to fend off persistent barkers as we made our way through the narrow arcade.



Past the arcade was a wharf.
Here, we crossed Dubai Creek with a water taxi-like ferry called an "abra".
It was a simple wooden boat equipped with nothing but back-to-back benches, a small roof providing shadow and a cockpit seat in the middle.

Since you have to go a bit upstream until you find a bridge crossing Dubai Creek, these ferries are the standard transport across for the people living here in the area.



The ferry took us across the creek, to the area called "Deira".
By going down Al Khor Street, we arrived at "Spice Souk", which is filled with stores selling spice!
This is an arcade lined with spices, seasonings, herbs and nuts, bustling with an ethnic mood.



Our last stop was at "Gold Souk"!
When we entered the market arcade, the first store we saw was displaying "the largest gold ring in the world"!
Not only that, but every store was cramped full with gold jewelry...!!
Looking at this heavily yellow gold felt almost like watching a cartoon. It was a veritable treasure chamber!
This sight would've definitely made the Rocket Gang trio overjoyed!
