The Pokemon Trading Card Game Is Still Around…And Now There’s A New Champion

by Christine Marie Attardo

 

Did you know the Pokemon Trading Card Game or TCG is still a thing? Yep, it is and it’s actually really fun to play. This past weekend was the North American International Championships. The fun took place at the Indiana Convention Center gathering over two thousand players.

Sometimes I trick myself into believing I’m actually good at the game, even when I was on a losing streak against my boyfriend. However, if you take some time to watch actual players compete, you would soon be humbled. It’s also good to know that the Pokemon TCG continues to release new expansions to enhance and change up the game. Check out the selection the next time you’re at the store. Who knows? Maybe you’ll discover that you have what it takes to participate in one of these championships.

After an exciting series of battles, here is what Pokemon International had to say:

If the action we witnessed at the North American International Championships are any indication, we’re in for an incredible World Championships when they kick off in Anaheim, California this August. Look forward to seeing our champions and many more of the world’s top players battling it out.
