Introducing the Odyssey Pokemon Circuit


Introducing our new Pokemon Circuit. We had a League-style in mind but we decided with player's feedback that we decided to run a circuit. Similar to the DPC (Dota Pro Circuit). Players will play through 8 tournaments to earn Circuit Points (CP) and the top performing players will be invited to the Finals, a double elimination format for much bigger prizes.

Season 1 has just started on July 4th, 2021 with 7 players in the mix (Article write-up soon!), so let's do a quick run-down

Season 1 will consists of 8 tournaments with various formats most of them will be Standard but we will act upon Player's feedback to do an Expanded tournament and a theme deck format. Players will pay a one time fee (per season) of $25 and this will entitle them to a player bonus which includes $10 store credit that players can use to pay for future tournaments or use it in-store. This also enables you to compete and earn various prizes. (Players will be able to pay later but will lose the player bonus if paid too late)

If Less than 8 players: (4 round swiss)

1st Place: 10 CP
2nd Place: 5 CP
3rd Place:  3 CP
4th Place: 2 CP
All participating players will receive 1 CP

If More than 8 Players: (4-6 round swiss)
1st Place: 20 CP
2nd Place: 15 CP
3rd Place: 10 CP
4th Place: 5 CP
5th-6th Place: 3CP
7th-8th Place: 2 CP
All participating players will receive 1 CP

More information will be updated on the OPC site @

If any Poke players in the LA area is looking to compete in a "home" version of the Pokemon Circuit; Come on down to Odyssey Games!

Pokemon Sundays #2 with Final commentary... Of some sort!

Pokemon TCG Showdown! Our 2nd Pokemon Sunday Session started off with a huge bang! We had more players show up and we even got one from the previous league play. The Casual Sunday Tourney had 9 entrants which is about double from last week. With this, we were able to see more decks meta or non-meta play. We had a player play with a beefed up version of the Vivid Voltage Charizard deck. We had someone play a Charizard League Battle Deck with some upgrades and of course we saw the usual ADP and Eternatus come into play as well. The battles were long but we were able to finish it off with a crazy finals which we were able to captured and put up a none-to less professional commentary version of it on youtube (check below!) Tournament finished! I may re-assess how to run the finals where the bracket can reset and the someone coming from the lower brackets will have to beat the Winner bracket twice and a 20 minute match timer for each round. All rounds will start at different times so runnin

Pokemon Sundays

 Pokemon Sundays Running a League every Sunday I got approved as a Pokemon Professor at the Organizer level awhile back and just recently got our League approved. Unfortuately, Pokemon OP is paused for the rest of the season so we won't be able to get promos or do cool events but that's not stopping us from having Pokemon Sundays where we can have casual fun tournaments for prizes in many different formats. We got 5 (with 4 playing in the tournament) people to show up for our first day and they came from word of month or an advertisement (that we made) from somewhere else. We rocked out with a 5$ buy in where 1st place will receive 2 booster packs and everyone gets 1 for competing. If we get more players there be more/better prizes. I'm also looking into running my own League format. Something similar to 8 weeks, 1 league bo3 a week with top 4 playing in the "Odyssey Pokemon Cup" for a chance to win more booster packs and a "trophy" Everything is still i
