Play! Pokémon Professor Seminars

The 2020 Play! Pokémon Championship Series has been suspended. More details here.

Learn more about the Online Professor Cup and Seminars here.

Professor Seminars are fun and educational sessions that often include workshops, group activities, and talks from program veterans. They are great places to make new friends and share experiences with like-minded Professors. The goal of Professor Seminars is to make sure every attendee leaves the session with something new to think about!

Professors will receive 5 Professor Points for each Seminar they attend. Those who attend multiple Seminars during the season may also find themselves eligible for an exclusive prize....
