The Professor Rewards Program is designed to recognize you for your hard work and dedication to the Play! Pokémon program. This program will allow you perform a variety of activities to earn credits that can be redeemed for exclusive items. Credits are earned for the following activities:
If you are both a Tournament Organizer and a Professor, you will receive 10 credits for every tournament that you report within 14 days of the event date. Credits will accrue from the point at which you are accepted into the Professor Program.
If you judge a tournament while you are a Professor, you are eligible to receive 10 credits. Credits are awarded when the Tournament Organizer uploads the results, and will be awarded only if the Tournament Organizer in charge of the event lists you as a judge. You will not receive credits for judging if you are both the Tournament Organizer and a judge for the same event. Credits will accrue from the point at which you are accepted into the Professor Program.
If you are a League Owner or League Leader, you will receive 25 points when a location that you are associated with reports a season's results. Credits will accrue from the point at which you are accepted into the Professor Program.
Any credits that you've earned or spent will be displayed in the Professor section of your My Pokémon account in a format similar to a credit card statement. Each time you complete an activity that earns you credits, the number of credits earned and a brief description of the activity will be displayed in your statement, along with a total number of unspent credits that you've accumulated. Every time you spend your credits in the Professor Rewards store, you'll see a list of what you spent those credits on.
The Pokémon Company International reserves the right to alter the credits earned for completed activities at any time, without notice, as well as reserving the right to add or remove credit-earning activities.
Credits can be redeemed on a monthly basis for items in the Professor Rewards store. All outstanding orders are processed at the end of each month and are shipped shortly thereafter. You may modify an outstanding order at any time prior to the order being processed. This allows you to add, remove, or change the quantities of any items that are currently available. All items in the Professor Rewards store are on a first-come, first-served basis and are limited to the inventory on hand.
When Professors spend credits in the Professor Rewards store, oldest credits are spent first. Credits received through fraudulent means may not be redeemed and will expire immediately, in addition to any other penalties that this may incur.
If you are dropped from the Professor Program for any reason, credits you have accumulated that remain unspent must be redeemed at the next available opportunity or else they will be lost. The items available to order may be restricted if you are dropped from the Professor Program.
The Pokémon Company International reserves the right to add, remove, or alter the credit value of items in the Professor Rewards store without notice.
A variety of items are available to Professors who earn credits for activities. Most of these items are available only through the Professor Rewards store and will never be released in any other manner. A link to the Professor Rewards store can be found in the Professor section of your Pokémon Trainer Club account.
Each item in the store has a brief description of the item, as well a restriction on how many may be ordered each tournament season. As new items become available, they will be added to the store.
