Fremont's own Gerardo Gonzalez, 11, came home a top finisher after several days of head-to-head Pokemon video game battles. Gerardo competed in Indianapolis, Indiana against elite Pokemon video game players from around the country at the 2012 Pokemon U.S. National Championships. Gerardo clinched 4th place, in the Junior Division, earning an invitation and travel award to the 2012 Pokemon World Championships in Hawaii this August. From a group of thousands, only 36 American Pokemon Trading Card Game and video game players made the cut to advance.
The Pokemon Company International will choose a select number of top players and their teams participating at the 2012 Pokemon Video Game World Championships and distribute them via Nintendo(r) Wi-Fi Connection service into the upcoming Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2 video games (launching in the U.S. October 7).
