Pokémon Championship Series Special Events

In addition to the regular events in the Championship Series schedule such as Regional and International Championships, Pokémon Special Events give Pokémon TCG and video game players more chances to earn Championship Points. Prizes are often awarded also, at the discretion of the event organizer.

All players in good standing are welcome to participate—there are no qualifications or residency restrictions at any Special Event. Pokémon TCG players need to bring their own 60-card deck that matches the format listed below. Pokémon video game players must bring their own game, system in the Nintendo 3DS family, and a legal team.
