Last week Nintendo Australia announced that Pokémon trainers from Australia and New Zealand would be given the chance to battle it out in the Pokémon Video Game Australian National Championships at PAX Australia 20 and 21 July 2013.

They also announced that if you were not fortunate enough to have a PAX ticket, there would be the opportunity to win one at Pokémon meet-ups being run around Australia. Today, we've received some information about the Melbourne and Brisbane events that will be happening this weekend.

Melbourne fans need to head to The Deakin Edge at Federation Square this Saturday 6 July to compete in the Pokémon Battle Competition. Two age group competitions will be running Junior (born in or after the year 2000) and Senior (born in or before 1999). The top 50 trainers in each age group will win a ticket to PAX Australia so they can enter the Australian National Championships for the day of their age group.

Brisbane fans need to get themselves to the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre this Sunday 7 July to compete. The same rules as Melbourne apply except that only the top two competitors from each age group will receive a ticket to PAX Australia. That's not all though, the Brisbane winners will each receive flights and accommodation to Melbourne in addition to their PAX Australia ticket.

Make sure you're well versed in the rules of the competition before attending.

Don't forget that the top two trainers in each age category at PAX Australia will win a trip to Canada to take part in the Pokémon Video Game World Championships, hosted by The Pokémon Company International in Vancouver on 9-11 August 2013.
