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 Tournament Organizer.

Pokémon TCG players need to bring their own legal 60-card deck. Pokémon video game players must bring their own game, system in the Nintendo Switch family, and a legal team. Pokémon Video Game Championship Series events will be played on Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield for the whole 2022 season.

In order to participate, players must have a Trainer Club account; be in good standing with the Play! Pokémon program; and comply with current COVID-19 requirements for large Pokémon events.

Registration for these events is handled by the Tournament Organizer. Many Special Events require online registration, and events may sell out. Please check the Event Locator for details about each event, including information regarding registration.
