Pokemon VGC Tournament!

We're so happy to announce our first 2018 VGC tournament! I'd like to thank everyone in the Pokemon VGC community for getting the VGC community to where it is today and most of all I'd like to personally thank Khalid Akh for supporting the VGC community and being absolutely dedicated to bringing VGC to this country! Hopefully with the help of Khalid and all you guys we can soon add UAE to the list of official VGC countries! We just need to show the Pokemon company that we have a voice and it needs to be heard!
