Registration for all Pokkén Tournament DX competitors and for Pokémon TCG and video game Junior and Senior Division competitors will be open until 8 p.m. CET on Friday, April 26.

Cash or check payments for badges will not be accepted.
Under local law, players under the age of 14 are required to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Such players who are not accompanied by a parent or guardian are at risk of exclusion from the venue and disqualification from the tournament.
All attendees must carry a form of identification while attending the event.

All competitors who register and attend will receive a badge, lanyard, player pin, deck box, set of card sleeves, playmat, and hat. Items will be distributed on site at the event. Substitute product may be provided if necessary.
Badges can only be picked up on site at the event. Competitors will be required to provide their name, player ID number, and some form of ID to pick up their competitor badge. Junior and Senior Division competitors must also have a guardian present to pick up their competitor badge.
All registered competitors under age 18 will also receive a spectator badge and lanyard, at no additional charge, for a parent or guardian. This spectator badge will not include any other items. Any additional spectator badges must be purchased online.
Spectator registration fee (age 6 and over): €10
Spectator registration will be available for online purchase throughout the event weekend, until 1 p.m. CET on Sunday, April 28, or until badges sell out.
Each spectator will receive two Pokémon TCG booster packs when they pick up their badge. A registration confirmation email (sent after spectator registration is completed via the registration website) will be required to pick up spectator badges. A maximum of six spectator badges can be purchased at one time.
Children age 5 and under do not need to be registered in advance, and will instead be given wristbands on site at the event. These children do not receive any additional items.
Competitors and spectators can pick up their badges at the following locations and times:
Thursday, April 25, 5–8 p.m.
Friday, April 26, 8 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Saturday, April 27, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Sunday, April 28, 8:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Badge pickup will be located near the foyer outside Convention Hall II at the Berlin Estrel Congress Center.
Competitors will receive lanyard and welcome items when badges are picked up. In order to be entered in the tournament, players must check in early. See the check-in policy for more details.
Please note: Pokkén Tournament DX Senior and Masters Divisions, Video Game Junior and Senior Division, and Pokémon TCG Junior and Senior Division competitions all begin Saturday, April 27. Players may not participate in overlapping events that occur at the same time (e.g., Pokkén Tournament DX Senior Division and VG Senior Division competitions). If a player who advances from Friday in the Pokémon TCG or VG event has also registered for the Pokkén Tournament DX event, they will need to indicate which event they will play in on Saturday—they cannot play in both. If you qualify for two events, please inform a judge in the competition you will not be participating in so they can remove you from the competitor list.
Whenever you are in the event space, please make sure that you are wearing your badge and that it is visible at all times.
For your safety and the safety of all guests, all bags will be subject to search upon entry to the event.
Items that would not pass airline security, as well as electronic smoking devices, are not permitted in the event space. This includes all weapons and small pocketknives, other sharp objects, and propellant sprays.
Please leave any items larger than a backpack at your hotel. If you have already checked out, please ask the hotel front desk to store your luggage. Bags should not exceed 9" x 14" x 22" (23 cm x 36 cm x 56 cm). Attendees with larger items at the event entrance will not be permitted to enter the event space.
Good luck to all competitors at the 2019 Pokémon Europe International Championships!
