Championship Points are awarded to players based on the position in which they finish at Pokémon Championship Series tournaments. Each player may receive Championship Points from only a limited number of each type of event, known as the Best Finish Limit. When tournament series with different Championship Point scales are included in the same Best Finish Limit, the highest point totals are counted instead of the highest placements. Players may participate in as many tournaments as they like to try to improve their highest scores.
Championship Points are used to earn Travel Awards or Stipends to each of the Pokémon International Championships, as well as to earn invitations and Travel Awards to the annual Pokémon World Championships. Event qualifications are listed on each event-specific page as it is posted.
Note that Pokémon TCG Championship Points and Pokémon Video Game Championship Points are considered separate. They cannot be used across event types. This means that players cannot use Championship Points earned at the Video Game Regional Championships to gain entry to the Pokémon TCG World Championships. You can see how many Championship Points you've accumulated during the season on your Pokémon Trainer Club account profile page.
