Notes
  • Alongside the Tours SPE and South African National Championship, this was the first tournament to feature Forbidden Light as a legal set. 
  • Rahul Reddy scooped to Sam Chen in the finals for several reasons: they're friends; they didn't want to play a 59-card mirror; and Chen was chasing NA Top 4 while Reddy was not. The 200 CP earned boosted Chen into 5th place in NA after the event.

Decklists

Sam Chen, 1st - Malamar/Necrozma-GX
2nd-place finisher Rahul Reddy played the same list +1 Max Elixir -1 Malamar. 
Player notes:
  • "The list is pretty consistent, but definitely has room for improvement. The one thing I wouldn't change is the 4-4 Malamar line. I’m not sold on the Elixirs either, but they were helpful for accelerating energy and thinning the deck when I did hit them. The two cards I might consider adding are Mewtwo GX and Mimikyu, but I’m not sure what I would cut."
