Pokémon Video Game Championship Points

Information subject to change.


Video Game Championship Points are awarded to players based on how well they finish at each Play! Pokémon Championship Series event.

VGC events that award Championship Points include the following:

About the Championship Points System

All Championship Series events award Championship Points to players who finish at first place in their age division. Players finishing below first place earn points only if the attendance at a specific event and in their age division reaches a specific threshold. The awarding of additional Championship Points at an event based on attendance is called a Kicker.

Each Championship Series event has a Best Finish Limit. This is the maximum number of scores that can count for that series, with higher-scoring placements replacing lower scores.

To be eligible for Championship Points and Play! Points, players must have a registered Player ID attached to their Pokémon Trainer Club account and must opt in to the Play! Pokémon program.


VG Championship Points Tables

Championship Points (CP) will be used to determine various awards during the 2022 season, including Pokémon World Championships invitations.

The CP that eligible players earned in 2020 will transfer in whole to the 2022 season. Players will continue to add to this total with any CP earned in the 2022 season. Read the latest news on the 2022 Championship Series for more details.
