After a full day of head-to-head Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG) battles, John Foster took first place in the Masters Division at the 2013 Pokémon City Championships in San Diego, CA. Along with the coveted title and City Championship trophy, John earned valuable Championship Points that count toward a potential invitation to compete at the 2014 Pokémon World Championships in Washington D.C. In addition, players that achieve a top Championship Points ranking after the 2014 Spring Regional Championships in April will earn Travel Awards to compete at the 2014 Pokémon U.S. National Championships in Indianapolis next summer. 

 Premier Championship events are sanctioned by The Pokémon Company International and locally managed by Premier Tournament Organizers who run hundreds of Pokémon TCG and video game tournaments every year throughout North America. Collectively they oversee tens of thousands of Pokémon competitors who train and compete at various local league events and sanctioned tournaments on their quest to become a Pokémon World Champion. 

 “The Pokémon City Championships are special because they are a great way for new players participating in premiere events for the first time to compete alongside more experienced players in a game they really enjoy,” said J.C. Smith, director of Consumer Marketing for The Pokémon Company International. “We’re excited to follow these local players as they continue to battle throughout the season, including at upcoming Pokémon State and Regional Championships, and perhaps making it to the 2014 Pokémon World Championships in Washington, D.C.”

Players of all ages and skills are encouraged to participate in Organized Play events. For more information on future tournaments including dates, locations, prizes, and tournament rules and regulations, visit www.pokemon.com/play.
