Players may not participate in overlapping events that occur at the same time (e.g., Pokkén Tournament DX Senior Division and Video Game Senior Division competitions). Players will need to indicate which event they will play in on Saturday (they cannot play in both). If you are playing in 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, 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 inches x 14 inches x 22 inches (23 cm x 36 cm x 56 cm). Attendees with larger items will not be permitted to enter the event space.
Good luck to all competitors at the 2022 Pokémon European International Championships!
