    All Canadian Residence? Or is it actually an open event again?

    Also, do you have information on prizes for the main event?

    It is open to all Canadian Residents as it is a Canadian National Championship.

    Pokemon has not released anything regarding the Canadian prizing structure yet. However, I think it might be very similar if not exact to other international nationals

    Just thought I'd clarify, it seems every year an American or two sneaks in without knowing any better =p

    It baffles me how TPCI hasn't released the prize structure for a tournament that's only 2 weeks away.

    Hey everyone,

    I wanted to inform those who will be attending, as well as those unable to attend, that the 2015 Canadian National Pokemon Championship will be live streamed through Twitch.tv courtesy of the streamer Kemony and myself. You can find her channel at:


    You can also check out her Youtube channel where you can watch the 2015 Ohio State Championship as well as the 2015 Ontario Regional Championship.


    We look forward to seeing everyone either in chat or at the event.


    P.S. For those of you attending, you can save time filling out a deck list by using the Pokegym Decklist Generator found here: http://pokegym.net/decklist/pokemon.htm
