Can just any rule-abiding pokemon player show up at Nats. and play there. I didn't get an invite or anything but I am interested in going. It say on the official POP website: * To participate in the event, you must be a player in good standing and abide by the Pokémon Tournament Rules and all other applicable event rules. * The Pokémon TCG National Championships are open to legal residents of the host country only. Residency in this case is defined as a person who legally resides in the host country or one of its territories, not necessarily a citizen. Proof of residency will be required upon registration. * Players who are found in violation of the rules of eligibility are subject to suspension from Pokémon Organized Play and loss of prizes, including, but not limited to, invitations and Travel Awards. So could I just show up there and play?
