Masters Division players competing in the Pokémon Players Cup IV for Pokkén Tournament DX will compete in two tournament phases.
Players will be able to register for the Pokémon Players Cup IV Region Qualifiers. Registration will be capped.
North America rating zone (US and Canada): 128 Players
Europe rating zone (Europe): 128 Players
Oceania rating zone (Oceania): 64 Players
In June, players will then compete in Region Qualifiers within their region (based on rating zone, excluding Latin America, South Africa, and Russia). Each Region Qualifier will be a separate double-elimination bracket taking place over two weekends (attendance permitting) so that play times can be optimized by rating zone and so that the time commitment to play at home will be only a few hours per session. Players will be required to register online before the qualification date and will need an account with both Discord and Battlefy to participate.
Matches will be best of three and will use the Basic Battle 1v1 Format. Specific details on rules and report times will be available at a later date.
Registration for the Players Cup IV Pokkén Tournament DX competition is now open to all eligible players. Choose your region's registration page below to sign up for the event. Players who did not qualify for the Players Cup IV's Pokémon TCG event or Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield event may still register for this competition.
