Pokémon Trade & Play Event
- Date: Sunday, July 15
- Time: 6:30 p.m.
- During the event guests can come in and trade Pokémon cards with their fellow trainers
- The trade portion of the event is free for anyone to participate!

Play Event Bracket
- Participants are put into a 16-person bracket
- At the time of the play event, GameStop staff fills out the bracket in order of the sign-up sheet for everyone who has their Build & Battle box
- Each match is single elimination
- Players may only use cards received from the Build & Battle box purchased as entry, excluding energy cards
- Players should bring a variety of energy types, as they will not know what kind of deck they can build ahead of time
- Each store will have extra energy cards that players can borrow to help build their decks
- Each player shuffles their 40-card deck and draws 7 cards (keep hidden)
- Put your basic Pokémon in place face down – 1 as your active Pokémon and up to 5 on your bench
- The next 6 cards in the deck should be put face down on the side as your prize cards
- Draw a card
- Do any of the following actions in any order:
- Put Basic Pokémon cards from your hand onto your Bench (as many times as you want)
- Evolve your Pokémon (as many times as you want)
- Attach an Energy card from your hand to one of your Pokémon (once per turn)
- Play Trainer cards (as many as you want, but only one Supporter card and one Stadium card per turn)
- Use Abilities (as many as you want)
- Retreat your Active Pokémon (only once per turn)
- Attack, then end your turn
You WON if…
