The official English Pokémon website has announced that an official Pokémon area will be setup at the Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio from June 15th until June 19th, 2016. Attendees will be able to play in official Video Game and TCG tournaments and can earn Championship Points in some of the competitions.


Press Release - Play Pokémon at Origins!

Compete for a trip to San Francisco at the Origins Game Fair in Ohio this June!

Pokémon returns to Origins in Columbus, OH, from June 15–19, 2016, with exciting Pokémon TCG and video game competitions throughout the event! The Origins Game Fair is held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center and is open to players of all ages with paid admission.

With seven Pokémon TCG formats and six Pokémon video game formats being played, there will certainly be a tournament that suits you. There are even fun beginner events for players new to Pokémon competitive play! Prizes will be awarded to top players, including Championship Points for some of the competitions.

Be sure to compete in the featured Pokémon TCG and Pokémon video game Win-a-Trip tournaments at Origins, where the top prize in all three age divisions is a trip to San Francisco during the weekend of the Pokémon World Championships in August! The Pokémon TCG event will be played using the Standard format, and the Pokémon video game event will use the 2016 Video Game Championships format. Entry requires one tournament ticket, available at Origins.

A minimum of six players is required to hold a tournament, and only Win-a-Trip tournaments with 30 or more players can award a trip. Any Win-a-Trip tournament that doesn't meet this attendance threshold will instead award two boxes of Pokémon TCG booster packs from the latest expansion to the winner.

Good luck to everyone competing in Pokémon TCG and video game competitions at Origins this June!
