Had a few people ask how to buy these headphones as they are only sold in China.

You can use a purchasing agent service such as Superbuy, Cssbuy or Wegobuy or others to purchase this. These are businesses that allow international buyers purchase from websites that only support domestic Chinese customers. It is similar as a proxy agent for Japanese Stores, like Buyee.

The item will ship to their warehouse, and then can ship to you. They provide services for buyers such as photographing your purchase upon arrival to ensure it is the correct item and arrived without damage.

If this official announcement was made like 3 days ago, I'd be more than fine with it, but you don't announce an event is canceled 2 hours after it starts.

The Pokémon Company International has announced the 2020 Pokémon Regional Championships and the big surprise to many will be the fact that next seasons tournaments will once again initally use Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon instead of Pokémon Sword and Shield which many assumed would be the new games used for competitive play. It is implied that changes may occur to the tournaments format before next years world championships but the Pokémon Company International did not confirm nor announce there would be a transition or a transitional period from SM to SwSh.

When they announced 2017 Pokémon Regional Championships Schedule, they announced there would be a transition from ORAS to SM on December 1st, 2016, only a week and half after SM's release on November 18th, 2016. No such announcement was made for a transition to SwSh in the 2020 Pokémon Regional Championship press release.

2017 Pokémon Regional Championships Schedule
The 2020 Pokémon Regional Championships Schedule press release also does not say there will be a new format like they said in the 2017 schedule press release. All the 2020 press release says is there will be format updates, which normally occur throughout the seasons. Updates aren't the same as a new format.

SM to USUM was announced on December 6th, 2017 for implementation in January 2018, a month and a half after release. We will probably see something similar or maybe even a bit longer with SwSh as they will probably want to announce it with the launch of Pokémon Home for compatibility. The SM to USUM transition was extremely criticized back then as well for being very late, considering there was little difference between SM and USUM to warrant such a delay for competitive players.

This lack of a confirmed transition announcement in the schedule press release, is an indication that they're not fully confident in SwSh. Even starting this competitive season with USUM is a bit of a bad judgement. Masuda confirmed that not all National Dex Pokémon will be in Sword and Shield. For competitive and casual players alike, this means the entire competitive meta will be affected due to missing Pokémon. This transition is the most important transition in generations and starting off the competitive season with USUM seems pointless if a players Pokémon can't be used going forward into Sword and Shield.

It's getting harder and harder as a fansite to promote or justify The Pokémon Company and Nintendo with these predatory prices for Pokémon games. These games are targeted for kids to play but pricing is really hurting the franchise and I don't want to support a franchise that actively exploits children through excessive monetary and capitalistic methods. That's not saying they shouldn't make a profit, they are a business, but unfortunately they are taking cues from the gaming industry as a whole which are pulling these tactics.

HOME should not be this expensive especially after paying AAA prices for SwSh. I thought $5 for Bank back in the day was overpriced...

Now you effectively need 3 separate subscriptions for SwSh.

1. Nintendo Switch Online subscription to play SwSh online.
2. Pokémon HOME subscription to store and effectively trade.
3. Pokémon Bank subscription to get your old Pokémon off your older games.

This is kind of expanding upon my post about the SwSh DLC pricing as well and we are now realizing why Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield were released as incomplete games, to sell features that should have been in the game.

It honestly feels like a scam. That's how I feel about this as a life long Pokémon fan.
