Get started with Pokémon video game competitions at Premier Challenge events! Enjoy the thrill of live competitive battles and get started on the path toward the Pokémon World Championships. Premier Challenges are the smallest events in the VG Championship Series season and provide a great way for players to try competitive Pokémon play in person.
Welcomes players of all skill levels
Offers a fun time with other Pokémon fans

These events have modest Championship Point payouts and provide players with an excellent opportunity to get started in Pokémon video game tournament play. The Tournament Organizer may award additional prizes, which may vary from event to event. Please check the details offered by the Tournament Organizer for more information.
Premier Challenges are closely related to Midseason Showdowns, which are held less frequently but in similar venues and offer a higher Championship Point payout for those players looking for additional competition.
These events will not resume for the 2022 Season. We look forward to sharing more information on these events with the community in the future.
