We’ve just come back from the 2010 Pokémon TCG World Championships in Waikoloa, Hawaii!
The World Championships is a premier world event, with players exclusively invited based on the National Championships, their high premier rating, performance in last year’s World Championships, and top-ranked players in the Last Chance Qualifier. Hosting all the top players from around the world, with awards and scholarships presented, the 2010 Pokémon TCG World Championships was an event not to be missed!
All in all this year, over 750 TCG players and over 150 video game players competed in tournament play, and more than 1,000 TCG players competed in Prereleases and other side events. Players met Pikachu, received a special Crobat, and met Pokémon VIPs. What a fantastic weekend of fun and competition it was. Thanks, everyone, for making this such a fun and successful Pokémon World Championships!
