Pokemon League Nederland: Crime Edition Championship

Have you always wanted to be part of a gang? Have you always wanted to use Pokémon for your own gain? Then join your favorite crime syndicate now, and help them eliminate the others to gain the right to rule the world!
Pokemon League Nederland organizes the Pokémon League Crime Edition at Anime2015! Join Team Rocket, Aqua, Magma or Plasma and grab your chance to rule over the world!

At a league, there is also a championship match to see who is the best trainer that uses their Pokémon at it's full potential, to become Anime2015's strongest crime lord. And how to become one?
There will be 4 champions available during the weekend: "Friday only", "Saturday only", "Sunday only" and "Weekend". So every faction grunts (you guys) will have a shot to become the very best (or worse) that no one ever was (or could be).
The daily only grunts will have a final on each day and one will become the daily champion. The "Weekend" grunt will have to do a qualification round on saturday or sunday, to earn a spot at the grand final on sunday. Of course with the grand final isn't a grand final without a grand prize; "Golden Marieke"
