It's easy to get started in the Pokémon Championship Series! Use the Event Locator to find out where you can compete in your area.
Most smaller tournaments require no advance registration—all you need to do is show up with a valid Pokémon TCG deck or video game and system. Tournaments at the Regional Championships level and above may require advance registration and may sell out quickly; be sure to check the tournament listing for details.
Most Pokémon Championship Series events are operated by independent Tournament Organizers. Please contact the Tournament Organizers for specific information about their venue or scheduling. Entry fees are at the discretion of the Tournament Organizer.
The best players throughout the season can earn invitations to the Pokémon World Championships! Competitors who have met the qualification criteria, either because they earned the requisite number of Championship Points during the season or placed highly enough in a tournament that awards direct invitations, will receive an invitation to compete, but all fans are welcome to come witness the excitement of the most prestigious event in the Pokémon Championship Series.
Information for Competitors
Before you attend a Championship Series event, here are some guidelines you should know that apply to every competition.
A player's Pokémon TCG deck must comply with the format assigned for the given tournament as outlined in the Pokémon Tournament Rules. Pokémon VGC and Pokémon GO players must have a team that complies with the regulations for each event.
Information on participation requirements for Pokémon UNITE competitions will be announced later.
Every player is encouraged to provide their Player ID and have a Pokémon Trainer Club account, and must be in good standing with the Play! Pokémon program. It is helpful for players to bring their Player ID card, if they have one. If they have not previously been given a Player ID, they can request one here or obtain one at the event.
Players should review the Pokémon Tournament Rules for more information about what to bring to an event.
Note that some events require spectator passes, as well. Some events have limited capacity and require spectators and participants to have badges, as well as comply with our COVID-19 policy.
To get started in the Pokémon Championship Series, find an event near you and join the fun. Good luck, Trainers!
