Release information

Up until the 2013 World Championships, the top prize cards were only awarded to the top three competitors in each age division for those competing in the Pokémon Trading Card Game Championships. This was changed to include an additional prize card for competitors placing fourth in each division, and to widen the distribution to those also competing in the Video Game Championships. The card features the same artwork as the No. 3 Trainer. The artwork was updated for the card awarded at the 2014 World Championships, featuring an embossed Full Art Pikachu complete with trophy by 5ban Graphics. The card also features a bronze border. As with the card awarded in the previous World Championships, it features the same artwork as the 2014 No. 3 Trainer.

Details of each tournament this card was awarded at are below.

2013 World Championships
  • East Building of the Vancouver Convention Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada between August 9 and 11, 2013.
2014 World Championships
  • Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. between August 15 and 17, 2014.


Trivia

  • There are only six copies of each annual version produced, making it amongst the rarest English cards available.
  • The 2013 copies awarded to the Video Game fourth place winners still make reference to the Pokémon Trading Card Game World Championships in the card text. This was corrected starting with the 2014 World Championships.
