On Sunday 18 April, crowds gathered at The Nintendo Connection, Myer Sydney, to compete in the 2011 Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version Battle Competition. With a Nintendo 3DS, a copy of the game and a limited edition T-Shirt up for grabs, the competition was fierce and the best Pokémon Trainers from around the state turned up to test their Pokémon in battle, while others were busy trading Pokémon and enjoying the many new features of Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version.
