This was my third big event of the year (Athens Regional, Roanoke Regional). I should also mention that I recently became a competitive Pokémon player in October of 2016. Learning a lot from friends and watching tons of videos I picked up the game fairly easily…. Back to now, I spent the better part of a month figuring out what I wanted to play for the NAIC. I built quite a few decks including a fun Tapu Koko GX...
