    Actually, the prereleases are the first couple of weekends in _September_. The locations we know of so far come from the TO's sites, not Nintendo/PUI.

    Well let me correct that...

    The Prerelease will happen during the 1st two weekends of September, more than likely it will be held at the same place that your nearest R/S Challenge will be held. Call the location and find out. (need a location? go to www.pokemon-tcg.com)

    I've check both areas. The Inn at Chester Springs (hopefully, you know what i'm talking about cuz thats all it says) at Exton, PA will have the R/S challenge. I wasnt able to find anything about the prerelease tourney though, so you will have to call them about that.
