Pokémon TCG Sun & Moon Prerelease Events in Australia

 

The latest expansion to the Pokémon Trading Card Game, Sun & Moon, will be released on February 3rd 2017 in Australia. As with all new expansions there are a number of prerelease events being hosted on the weekend before, thus giving players the chance to obtain and play with the new cards before the official release. The new expansion sees the release of cards featuring Pokémon first introduced in the Pokémon Sun and Moon 3DS games, in addition to being the first main TCG expansion to contain the new Pokémon-GX cards. So, whether you’re a TCG veteran, or a new player looking to jump in, prerelease events are an excellent opportunity to check out a new expansion!

A list of all events taking place around Australia can be found below:

Some quick information on prerelease events:

  • Prereleases are Limited-format events meaning players are only allowed to use cards they receive at the start of the event.
  • At the start of the tournament players receive a 22-card pack in addition to 4 booster packs (each booster containing 10 cards from the new expansion) OR 6 booster packs – players will construct their decks from these packs.
  • Energy Cards will be supplied by the event organiser.
  • 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 prerelease 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)
