PokéStats was founded in late 2016 by American player Tate Whitesell, who became interested in the competitive Pokémon TCG after watching the 2016 World Championships but realized the game lacked a serious resource for statistics-based content. With the encouragement and assistance of many top-rated players, Tate grew PokéStats into one of the preeminent media sources for the competitive Pokémon TCG, featuring a tournament database, metagame predictions, live event coverage, a Twitter account with thousands of followers, and more. PokéStats now employs a dedicated staff to assist in providing the best possible content. We hope that PokéStats continues to be a helpful and respected resource for as long as it is up and running!
