Rising Rivals Prerelease- more info

Looks like POP made an error. The Rising Rivals prerelease sleeves do not have Garchomp on them, they look more like this:

Also, here’s a small taste of what you may see at the Rising Rivals prerelease:

Platinum Prerelease and Forum

Thanks to those who came to the Platinum Prerelease in Lusby. We had 49 players (20, 17, and 12 in the Masters, Seniors, and Juniors). Congrats to winners Michael M, Trevor L and Dylan A. photo credit: Sue Sullivan.

I expected to have the SoMD Pokémon Forum up a few days earlier, but some server issues prevented this from happening.

The good news is that we have a functioning forum. We’re still in “beta mode” right now, but things are looking good (I have 12 loyal testers right now who are doing an great job helping me out), so we should be able to open it up to the public shortly.

If you haven’t taken the opportunity to join any Pokémon-related internet forums in the past, this may be a good time.

Great Reason To Come To the Platinum Prerelease!

I know I’m gonna want to get my hands on one of these! And you may too- if you come to the Platinum Prerelease this Sunday! Looks great for stall decks. Or perhaps Absol/Ambipom? I wonder if there will be a way to get cards out of the Lost Zone? No matter. This looks like it’s gonna be loads of fun for whoever can get their hands on this!
