One of the most exciting side events at the Pokémon World Championships is the Pokémon TCG Prerelease tournament, an opportunity for deck builders to check out new cards from the upcoming Pokémon TCG: Black & White—Plasma Blast expansion before they’re available in stores! Each player will get booster packs to use in building a deck, plus any needed Basic Energy. The cost for competing in the Prerelease tournament is $30, and you’ll get to keep all the cards you receive!

Spots in the Prerelease tournament fill up fast, so be sure to arrive at the Vancouver Convention Centre early on Sunday, August 11th, to compete in this fun event!
