Pokémon TCG Spring Regional Championships

Pokémon TCG Autumn Regional Championships

This season’s TCG Regional Championships will feature the new Expanded format. The first day of Swiss rounds will use the Standard format used in all previous Championship Series events. The second day of Swiss rounds and the single-elimination rounds will switch to the Expanded format. Because all Standard decks are legal in the Expanded format, players are not required to change their decks.

The Pokémon TCG Spring Regionals will be held on the weekends of May 16, 23, and 30, 2015. Gameplay typically begins on Saturday and concludes on Sunday. Check the tournament listings for details.
