We are pleased to announce the dates for the Portland Regional Championships will be March 24-25, 2018 at the Oregon Convention Center (same location as 2017). There is still a lot of planning to do, but we can tell you that the format for the TCG Championships will be Standard. We are also thinking of opening the doors at 7:30 AM this year to squeeze in just a little more time for you to enjoy all the great things you will find at the BIGGEST Pokémon party in the Northwest.
Last year the demand for side events was higher than ever, so in addition to the Video Game and Trading Card Game Championships we will be expanding the side event area at the 2018 event. We are planning an amazing variety of options for those that are not participating in the main events. There will be numerous video game and trading card game side event tournaments, and we will offer Pokémon Go events, Pokkén tournaments and possibly some Cosplay events. We realize that big championship tournaments are not for everyone, so you will find plenty of side event options to fill two days. We are looking at having even more vendors that last year and if you liked the Prize Wall this year, wait until you see what we have in store for 2018!
An event this big takes a great team to plan and staff. This year we are pleased to announce that pokeMATHer and Psyducky from Washington have joined Mr.Raichu, momma_june, Big Daddy Snorlax and Mrs. BDS as organizers of the event. Although the event is still eight months away planning is in full swing. We will strongly encourage on-line registration this year, but registration will not be open until a little later in the year. Never fear though, we will have enough space to accommodate everyone. Stay tuned to this site for announcements on pricing, places to stay in the area and more details on the events and prizes. Get the dates on your calendar now though, because you don’t want to miss this one!
