2011 Pokémon World Championship Results

The Pokémon Trading Card Game and Video Game World Championship Tournaments took place between August 12 and August 14. After countless nail-biting matches, the winners were finally crowned! Here are the results from the tournaments!

Pokémon Trading Card Game World Championship Winners

  • Master Division: David Cohen (USA)
  • Senior Division: Christopher Kan (Australia)
  • Junior Division: Gustavo Wada (Brazil

Pokémon Video Game World Championship Winners

  • Master Division: Ray Rizzo (USA)
  • Senior Division: Kamran Jahadi (USA)
  • Junior Division: Brian Hough (USA)

Winning TCG Decks

  • Masters: David Cohen used a Reshiram and Emboar Deck, with Magnezone for draw support and Rayquaza & Deoxys Legend for prize lead. This deck uses Emboar’s ability to attach unlimited Fire Energy to any Pokémon, thus powering up both the Reshiram and Rayquaza & Deoxys Legend.
  • Seniors: Christopher Kan ran a Reshiram and Typhlosion Deck, where Reshiram is the main attacker and Typhlosion is there to help with energy acceleration. This deck is powerful because Typhlosion can bring back the discarded Fire Energy so Reshiram can Blue Flare turn after turn!
  • Juniors: Gustavo Wada used a Yamega, Magnazone, and Kingdra Deck. This deck is powerful because Yamega has free retreat and free attacks, Magnezone has draw power, and Kingdraw can use Sea Spray to add 10 damage to any Pokémon.

Winning VG Teams

  • Ray Rizzo’s winning team: Terrakion, Hydreigon, Conkeldurr, Thundurus, Gothitelle, and Escavalier
  • Kamran Jahadi’s winning team: Jellicent, Amoonguss, Chandelure, Terrakion, Tornadus, and Thundurus.
  • Brian Hough’s winning team: Mienshao, Terrakion, Hydreigon, Thundurus, Musharna, and Amoonguss.

Looking Ahead

Congratulations to all the winners from this year’s tournament! The World Championship Tournaments will be held in Hawaii next year, so it’s time to start planning your next summer vacation!
