Pokémon TCG: Evolutions Pre-Release Locations and Details

evolutions
 

Hello Pokémon Players!

The latest expansion for the Pokémon Trading Card Game, XY Evolutions will be released on the 2nd November 2016. As per usual for new TCG expansions, a number of distributors and retailers will be holding pre-release events in October. So whether you’re a TCG veteran, or a new player looking to jump in, pre-releases are an excellent opportunity to check out a new expansion.  A list of all events in Australia can be found below. 

Quick Information on Pre-Release Events:

  • Pre-Releases are Limited-format tournaments – players are only allowed to use cards they receive at the start of the event.
  • Players receive a 22-card Evolution Pack and 4 Booster Packs (each Booster containing 10 cards from the new expansion). There are multiple versions of Evolution Packs at Pre-Release events, with each pack focusing on a different type/evolution line.
  • Each Player will also receive one of 4 promo cards unique to Evolutions Pre-Release events.
  • Each Player will construct a 40-card deck from their Evolution & Booster Packs. Energy Cards will be supplied by the event co-ordinator. You cannot change your deck once the tournament starts.
  • Due to the reduced deck-size, Players will only use 4 Prize Cards during matches.
  • If you have a Player ID be sure to bring it! If you’re a first time player and don’t have a Player ID don’t worry, one will be provided to you at the event.
  • Nearly all Pre-Release Events have an entry fee – be sure to check the event page for the exact cost.
  • Finally, general event rules for TCG can be found here (General Rules) and here (TCG Rules).
