Jose Marrero, 5th - Zoroark-GX/Lycanroc-GX/techs
Player notes:
  • "[Shaymin was] solid in the mirror. I played 4 mirrors over the weekend and won them all." 

Andrew Estrada, 8th - Golisopod-GX/Garbodor
There is a fourth Ultra Ball... in the deck box. 

Main Ahmed, 9th - Zoroark-GX/Golisopod-GX

Player notes:
  • "The only change from our [his, Mahone's, and Shampay's] Collinsville list [Shampay took 2nd place at that event] was the 4th Cynthia instead of 2nd Lele."

Aidan Koenig, 14th - Zoroark-GX/Lycanroc-GX

Dennis Peroff, 15th - Gardevoir-GX

Player notes:
  • On baby Lycanroc: "one-shot Grubbin and Wimpod [for one Energy]"
  • "Never had a problem with the 2-1 [Octillery] line"
  • "More shuffle draw Supporters to avoid discarding Energy and Max Elixir. It's hard to hit Max Elixir if you have 3 Energy in hand."
