The Pokémon Autumn Regional Championships is the first big event in the 2014 Play! Pokémon tournament season. Held in cities across the U.S. in October 2013, each Regional Championships is part of a title-event series where players compete for the title of Regional Champion! Results of the Regional Championships can give a serious boost to a player’s Championship Points and chances of earning travel awards to Nationals, or even an invitation to the 2014 Pokémon World Championships in Washington, DC!
Who Can Play at the Autumn Regional Championships?
There are no prerequisites to enter a Regional Championships. Just show up with a video game team and play ALL DAY! Pokémon tournaments use Swiss-style pairings, so all players can play in every round of an event until the finals are determined.
What Can I Win?
Each video game first place finisher will win a Nintendo 3DS system! Other top video game finishers will be awarded copies of Pokémon X or Pokémon Y, booster packs, trophies, and a huge step towards earning a National Championships travel award or stipend from a pool of nearly $200,000 in travel allowances!
