Side Event Schedule

Pokémon TCG and video game side events will be taking place all three days at the US National Championships. Awesome prizes will be awarded to top players, including Wii U consoles, Nintendo 3DS systems, playmats, booster packs, and other awesome Pokémon products! All players are invited to participate; you do not have to be a Nationals competitor to play. Many players will earn prizes even if they are not among the top finishers. Note that an entry fee is required for some side events.
