The Spring Pokémon Regional Championships will be making its way through the United States next month. Players can enter either the video game or card battles, and the only prerequisite is a legal TCG deck or your own copy of Pokémon X or Y and a 3DS/2DS for the video game event. Each player is vying for a spot at the US National Championships which takes place this July in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The battles start on April 5th and 6th in Athens, Georgia, Overland Parks, Kansas, Seattle, Washington and Sturbridge, Massachusetts. One week later the rounds continue at Madison, Wisconsin and Salt Lake City, Utah.

The event is open to the public and there are some great prizes up for grabs, such as booster packs, trophies, and a huge step toward earning a National Championships Travel Award or Stipend from a pool of nearly $200,000 in travel allowances.
