Worlds 2014 will be held in Washington D.C.!
This is a great opportunity for you to experience the World Championships on the East Coast next year. If you want to play for an invite or see what it’s like or take in the sights and sounds of the area, this news is your first step to plan!

Plasma Blast set is now Modified, Tournament-Legal!
As of last Wednesday, you can now use PLB cards in your decks for tournament play.

Thanks for coming out to the PLB Booster Draft last Saturday!
Congratulations to Calvin V., Seth E., and Kira M. for taking divisional top honors!

The 2013-2014 Modified-Constructed format is NXD-on effective August 28, 2013.
All LO/LL challenges and Premier Events will require you to use this format. However, you are encouraged to keep your cards from BLW-NVI in preparation for the 2014-2015 format.

Consider playing in Fall Battle Roads! Schedule of events to be posted whenever they are made available.
For some of the new players, it’s a great way to get your feet wet in the competitive scene. For you seasoned players, it’s a chance to brush up on your skills, earn Championship Points, and build your way up for an invitation to the 2014 World Championships! Click on the Tournaments tab above for dates and locations. I will update with more events as they become available.

Regionals schedules are in the works.
If you are looking to travel to any Regional Championships events this year, I have posted information made available by the PTOs hosting them. Please check out the Tournaments tab for info.

League kits are in.
Unfortunately, we didn’t receive the supplies for Opelucid season, but we did receive supplies for Humilau season. I am currently working with the U.S. Pokémon community to negotiate trades for Opelucid supplies, so please be patient!

Let me know if you have any questions!
