Pokemon TCG World Championships 2005 Underway!
The Pokemon TCG World Championships is now underway this weekend at San Diego, California. Over 400 players from over 30 countries will participate in the huge event.
What Else To Do at Worlds
Not all of us are Pokemon TCG geniuses, so for the average fan, there's still plenty do at Worlds. One big item is the Mystic Ticket will be given out at the event (just bring your game: Emerald, FireRed, or LeafGreen). Also, some Pokemon artists will be on site. Undoubtedly, the most famous of them all is Ken Sugimori, who's Pokemon art you can see all over the internet (as well as on this website of course). Pokemon artists Hironobu Yoshida, Tsunekaz Ishihara, and Takumi Akabane will also be there for autographs. And the usual fun and games associated with these big events will keep you occupied. And of course, with so many fans in one place, there's never been a better time to do some trading.
Will History Repeat Itself?
Last year, the winners of the three age brackets were all from Japan, and oddly enough, all third place finishers were Japanese competitors. All second place finishers were US competitors.
