»Nationals Promo: Thanks to E-bay and ShinAkuma from the PokeGym for bringing this to our attention, we now know what the US Nationals Championship promo is. As you may or may not know, the US National Championship is a huge modified tournament taking place in Columbus, Ohio. The top four people of each age group will get an invite to the World Championships in August, and the top three people of each age category will get a trophy. The Nationals will also be revealing new things about the Pokemon TCG, such as 2-on-2 battling rules and a preview of the next set, EX FireRed and LeafGreen, which we will talk about in the future once people get back and inform us of what they have learned. Anyways, everyone who attended the tournament received a Charizard promo card, which was highly expected after the City Championship promos were Charmander and the State Championship promos were Charmeleon. To see a scan of the card, you can visit an E-bay auction with the scan by [clicking here]. Remember to check back here for what Nationals reveals about the future of the Pokemon TCG.
»New Addition to the Right Menu: I have gotten rid of the Pokemon Release Dates in the right menu and have added in a new section called Upcoming Events and Release Dates. This new section will remind you of any major upcoming events and of all major release dates for Pokemon products. In the next few days, I will try to add links to each entry that refer you to an official source and to a news story that I have posted to better familiarize you with the event or product. When you look at the section, you will see that it only shows one entry at a time, then scrolls to the next one. Always be sure to check that entire section out and all of the entries so that you know about everything going on in the Pokemon World.
