Gamer’s Lair is host to two types of events, our weekly Pokémon League and our Prerelease tournaments.


Pokémon League

The best place to begin is at Pokémon League events. These non-competitive gatherings let you have fun in casual battles and meet other players without the pressure of competition. Pokémon League events are usually organized by folks who also run more challenging competitions, so they’re good resources if you’re interested in stepping up your game.

  • Ideal for entry-level players new to Pokémon competition
  • Support for both Pokémon TCG and video game players
  • Come together with other players
  • Get in touch with local organizers

  • Open for all players to enter
  • Opportunity to see cards before the official release date
  • Relaxed environment ideal for casual players
