Pokémon Spring Regional Championships dates confirmed for North America
That competitive spirit returns, with The Pokémon Company International having shared the dates at which this year’s Pokémon Video Game and Trading Card Game Spring Regional Championships will take place across North America.
These will run throughout April, with players battling for Travel Awards to the Pokémon US National Championships in Indianapolis, Indiana, hosted a few months later in July.
Victors will receive booster packs, trophies, and stipends from a pool of nearly $200,000 in travel allowances, which can be applied toward earning a Pokémon US National Championships Travel Award or an invitation to the 2014 Pokémon World Championships in Washington, DC this August.
To participate, players must bring their own copy of Pokémon X or Pokémon Y and a Nintendo 3DS or 2DS system for the video game section, or a legal Pokémon TCG deck for the trading card game section.
The Pokémon Spring Regional Championships will take place at the following locations and dates:
* Athens, GA: April 5th-6th (TCG both days, Video Game Apr. 6th only)
* Overland Park, KS: April 5th-6th (TCG both days, Video Game Apr. 6th only)
