Pokemon/Mario kart tournament

So a friend of mine emailed someone from the staff if there would be a pokemon tournament and the reply was that there wouldn't be one because people couldn't watch it on the ds/3ds.
It does seem though that there will be a mario kart 7 tournament (which is also on 3ds so it can't be watched).
I was wondering why this was the case? (If this shouldn't be posted here sorry in advance and please tell me where I should have posted it).

I'm afraid the answer is quite simple, there is a huge difference between the games.

Mario Kart 7: Plug in game and play.

Any Pokemon Game:
-Baned Pokemon
-Hacked Pokemon
-Forbidden moves
-Rare candy exploits

And I Understand there is a hardcore Pokemon fanbase, but each year 5 or 6 people singup for Pokemon (mostly the same people each year) and this just isn't viable for us to invest our staff and prizes in if we can't show it on a big screen. MK7 on the other hand has a much bigger pick up and play factor to it and more players and takes _WAY_ less time.
