This is an official Pokémon event for Northeast PA's Pokémon League. The tournaments being held are for the Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon games and the Pokémon TCG.
Registration for each event closes when the bracket for it begins. Please either buy a Pokémon TCG booster pack or pay the $3 venue fee at the counter, and then see the Tournament Organizer to pay the $2 entry fee for each event you will be playing in. Every entrant will receive Promotional Play! Pokémon Cards while supplies last. Promo Cards are given out on a first come first serve basis.

4:00 Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon Tournament
4:30 Pokémon TCG Tournament
Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon:
Smogon OU Singles format.
You must use only one team for the entire tournament.
Pokémon Sun & Moon games may be used only if all other competitors' teams are compatible with those games.
Expanded format. This spans from Black & White to most recent legal TCG expansion.
We will be using the most recent Pokémon TCG rulebook.
You must use one deck for the entire tournament.
Please note the Expanded format's banlist here:
Rounds of each tournament are best of 1. The top cut of a regular tournament is a best of 3. The video game is a double elimination bracket while the TCG is done through swiss pairings.
There should be at least 8 entrants for any one event in order for it to run as planned. Having less than this will result in a round robin format for that event.
Prizes include 2/3 of the prize pool to the winner and 1/3 to the runner-up for both events. The winners and runner-ups will also receive special NEPA Pokémon League Badges in gold and silver respectively. Top placing TCG players will receive Promotional Play! Pokémon TCG Online Cards.
Make sure your 3DS and Pokémon game are both updated to their most recent firmwares and versions, or you will not be able to battle! Also, remember to charge your system, and bring a charger to use just in case.
Please be sure to bring your Play! Pokémon ID! If you don't have one currently, one can be assigned to you easily when registering. This tournament is an opportunity to earn special Play! Pokémon Points using these ID's.
Feel free to post here if you have any questions. Thank you.
