Pokémon Championship Series Special Events

In addition to the regular events in the Championship Series schedule such as Regional and International Championships, Pokémon Special Events give Pokémon TCG and video game players more chances to earn Championship Points. Prizes are often awarded also, at the discretion of the event organizer.

All players in good standing are welcome to participate—there are no qualifications or residency restrictions at any Special Event. Pokémon TCG players need to bring their own 60-card deck that matches the format listed below. Pokémon video game players must bring their own game, system in the Nintendo 3DS family, and a legal team.

2017 Championship Series Special Events

Pokémon TCG Special Events may use either the Standard or Expanded format. On the video game side, competitors will use the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon games, following the tournament format of the 2017 Championship Series season. Keep checking Pokemon.com for more information on this format and for the announcement of more Pokémon Special Events.

Most Special Events have both Pokémon TCG and video game competitions, although some events may be exclusive to one or the other. Please check the Event Locator for more information about events.
