  • The tournament contained 10 different archetypes, with the only duplicates being four Mill decks (albeit with different Pokémon for resource looping), two Lapras VMAX/Frosmoth, two Malamar, and two Vikavolt.
  • Finalist Draydon Davis: "This format is so much fun to be honest, if you do it again there definitely need to be a few more bans though." 
    • Two of the Mill decks were eliminated in mirror matches.
    • Ilya Kornilov: "I would play another tournament like this but Mill has to be fixed somehow." 
    • PokéStats will likely ban Lillie's Poké Doll and Lt. Surge's Strategy, and unban Florges FLI, for future tournaments in this format.
