Pokémon TCG Cups

At some larger events, like Regional Championships, TCG Cups may take place. These events will have the same Championship Point awards as a League Cup and will contribute to the same BFL, but they will not distribute promo cards, playmats, or other prizes typically found when held at a League location. These events may be organized and hosted only at the exclusive invitation of Play! Pokémon.
