NAIC bounded baby!
What is NAIC? It just so happen to be one of the biggest events in competitive Pokemon! Especially in North America! It is the North America International Championships! Taking place from June 23rd to 26th in Columbus, Ohio. Ranging from competition from TCG, VGC, Pokken and Pokemon GO.
There is a special time in June where Pokemon players from around the world gather! The last and final time for many players to gain an invite to the Pokemon World Championships. Though, it isn’t all fierce competition! Some go for the fun of just battling Pokemon. Others go to be with friends. Either way, We are nearing NAIC and Pokemon fans are excited!
This year NAIC is a bit different. In the past, registration has been opened to all. Though, due to COVID protocol, registration has been limited to a first come, first serve process. This is to help prevent the spread of COVID among attendees. Registration was done in waves to give people various chances to register for one of the biggest Pokemon events of the year.
While not everybody was able to snag a spot today, plenty did. So, today I want to just share some of their excitement for many to see and enjoy. Hopefully it will make you happy as well.
WE ARE A GO TO COLUMBUS, OHIO!!!!
There are plenty of Pokemon GO players who will be battling their way to the top. How do they feel about getting their golden registration for NAIC?

We know their play for NAIC.
Selected for a Fun Time
Last but not least! We can’t forget the amazing Professors who are going to make sure the rules are followed and everybody have a fun time. After all, we can’t have an event without these amazing people!
Today, various Pokemon Professors got their invites to staff NAIC. We hope they have lots of fun working such an amazing event! Make sure to thank them if you are a player.
Feeling very fortunate to have been asked to serve as Assistant Head Judge for TCG Juniors at NAIC next month. I had so much fun working with their division at EUIC and I’m hyped I get to see work with them again so soon!
See you in Columbus, friends!
