Event Report: Malaysia Regional Championships 2018

A huge thank you to everyone who came for the Malaysia Regional Championships 2018! We hope you had a great time in what’s now the biggest major SEA competition this season, and all of us here at Team Rainbow Wing are proud to have organised this event for our players. 

Relive the action last weekend and tag your friends in these event pictures here.


MASTERS (173 Players)
1. Adrian Velasco [PH] – Ultra Necrozma GX/Malamar/Marshadow GX
2. Klive Aw [SG] – Zygarde GX/Lycanroc GX
3. Lee Keng Fai [MY] – Buzzwole GX/Lycanroc GX
4. Hariz Hamdan [MY] – Buzzwole GX/Lycanroc GX
5. Attar Ricco [ID] – Buzzwole GX/Lycanroc GX
6. Chun Yee Wei [MY] – Zoroark GX/Lycanroc GX
7. Keith Yong [MY] – Buzzwole GX/Lycanroc GX
8. Rishwyn Singh [US] – Buzzwole GX/Lycanroc GX

In a Buzzwole GX/Lycanroc GX dominated event, Klive Aw stood out from the competition, with Zygarde GX deck that completely took the tournament by surprise. Unfortunately, he was knocked out at the last hurdle against Adrian Velasco, who used an Ultra Necrozma GX deck to ultimately win the Masters Division of the Malaysia Regional Championships. 


SENIORS (20 Players)
1. Ethan Lee [MY] – Glaceon GX/Zoroark GX
2. Lochie McKeefry [NZ] – Zoroark GX/Lycanroc GX
3. Christian Anthony [PH] – Zoroark GX/Golisopod GX
4. Finn McKeefry [NZ] – Zoroark GX/Lycanroc GX

Ethan Lee has taken home another major championship victory, this time using Glaceon GX to shut down a Zoroark GX heavy Seniors division. He’s now a three-time major tournament champion this season, after winning the Indonesia Regional Championships and Thailand Special Event.


JUNIORS (6 Players)
1. Lance Monakil [PH] – Ultra Necrozma GX/Malamar
2. Soon Jia You [MY] – Buzzwole GX/Lycanroc GX
3. Esme McKeefry [NZ] – Ultra Necrozma GX/Malamar
4. Yeap Xin Xuen [MY] – Vikavolt/Tapu Bulu GX

The Juniors division saw the usual meta-heavy decks take the top spot, but kudos to Malaysia’s Yeap Xin Xuen, who managed to sneak into the top 4 with Tapu Bulu GX, a deck that has lost its spot in the metagame since the release of Forbidden Light.

There was also a League Cup on Day 2. Here are the Masters’ division standings:

1. Patrick Ebio [PH]
2. Thanat Ratanapisit [TH]
3. Derek Wan [MY]
4. Syahmi Razak [MY]
5. Rinesh John [MY]
6. Law Yuen To [HK]
7. Muhammad Rauf [SG]
8. Isaac Cheng [MY]

Four additional Malaysian Masters division players have also clinched their Pokémon TCG World Championships 2018 invites – Christopher Ismail, Rinesh John, Syahmi Razak and Jason Yong, making it 12 qualifiers for Malaysia in the Masters’ division altogether.

We will see you in the Singapore SPE this weekend!
