    I'm a Pokemon Card Game total noob so I don't yet know anything about the tournaments and who the star players are.

    I've been browsing the photos in the gallery on this web site, and see lots of pictures of players having medals on blue ribbons placed around their necks. So I'm guessing that these are tournament winners. But I haven't figured out how to identify the players in the photos or what the medals represent.

    I bet there are magazines (or better yet, web sites) that are like fan magazines for Pokemon players where I can read about who the top players are and follow their careers, just like sports fans follow the careers of their favorite players.

    I'd be grateful for some suggestions of what I could be reading to learn about who the best players in the game are. I know we've got a world champion here in Seattle, but he doesn't come to the League I've been going to. So I'm wondering where he plays. I think it would be a great learning experience just to be able to watch him play.

    Try checking out the Worlds information on go-pokemon.com, Pokémon USA's official website. It should give you some news about the World Champions, and their pictures, at least.

    But I wish we had more information like this! Pojo's old "Top of the World" series was good. It would be great if we could have some website with profiles (and pictures) of "the best of the best" and their player history and win records. I'm sure the top players themselves would be happy to contribute to such a website ...

    If you can get to a states or nats and watch the top 4 people will usually talk about the players who are doing well. I'm all about the oral tradition, though I'd get a huge kick out of Pokegym resurrecting the "Top of the World" Series. Like I was saying though, people will often enjoy telling a story or two about the good players they know stuff about. And the good players they lost to. etc. I'm excited to see someone new would care about the game's history, mad props.

    Looks like I missed out on something nice when they had "Top of the World."

    I wonder how may other veteran (and newbie) players would like to see it make a come back.

    The Tournaments and Organized Play forum on Pokegym is fun too. Right now, City Championships are taking place and you can see what decks are making top cuts and read some battle reports by players. It is also a good spot to find out about tournaments in your area.
