The date for the UK Pokémon Video Game Championship 2012 event has been announced as the 3rd of March. As always the event will be held in Birmingham, but for a slight change in things the Masters division will take to the stage to battle first. Normally it starts with the younger divisions with the Masters finishing off. There will also be a lower number of sign-ups for Masters this year, just 450 spaces. Sign-ups for Masters will open at 8am.
