Pokemon Celebrations Win an Elite Trainer Box Tournament 9/10/21

This Saturday, the Gaming Centre hosted our Win an Elite Trainer Box event! The turnout was great, especially since we hosted a Pokémon Movie viewing beforehand.

The atmosphere was electric, the battles were tense, but eventually Johnny emerged as the victor, piloting his faithful Single Strike Sylveon Box deck!

There were also many strong contenders amongst the ranks, such as the Eternatus deck that placed 4th and the Zacian Deck that placed 2nd. There were also a few Single Strike Box decks, and a Rayquaza VMAX deck which performed well.

It was great so see such a diverse meta play out through the afternoon, congratulations on our winner Johnny who walked away from the event with prize packs and his very own Celebrations Elite Trainer Box!
