Pokémon X and Pokémon Y Beta Competition Info and Regulations
The Pokémon X and Pokémon Y Beta Competition will be split into two divisions, based on birth dates. The Junior division is for players born on or after January 1, 1998, and the Masters division is for players born on or before December 31, 1997.
There are two ways to receive an invitation for the Beta Competition. If you participated in the 2013 Global Showdown, a Wi-Fi Competition held for Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 in July 2013, and you placed in the rankings, you have already earned a place in this competition. If you qualified in this way, you should see a notice on your main page when you log in to the Pokémon X and Pokémon Y Pokémon Global Link website. The notice will say, “You’ve Qualified for the Pokémon X and Pokémon Y Beta Competition.” If this applies to you, you don’t need to apply through the second process described below.
To be considered for the Pokémon X and Pokémon Y Beta Competition, you must sign in to Pokemon.com and follow these steps exactly. If you do not follow these steps exactly, you may not be added to the invitation request list.

Notable Changes from Past Wi-Fi Competitions
There is a limit on how many battles you can participate in each day. If you reach this limit, you will become unable to participate in any more battles that same day. If you do not use your full quota of battles for a given day, the unused battles will be rolled over to the following day.
The test competition will last for three days, so it is possible to take part in a maximum of 60 battles. The limit will be set to 20 battles per day. However, if you battled fewer than 20 times in one day, the remainder will carry over to the next day. For example, if you battled 15 times on Day 1, you can battle 25 times on Day 2. If you then didn’t battle at all on Day 2, you could participate in 45 battles on Day 3 (20 from Day 3 plus the 25 you carried over). The battle count for each new day will be reset at midnight UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).
There may be other limitations, based on your location and time of day.
