Registration for Main Event Competitors
Qualified competitors who have received invitations are highly encouraged to RSVP via the online registration system. Players can begin to RSVP in mid-July, after the conclusion of the 2017 season. There is no registration fee for competitors.
All competitors will receive one competitor badge and Worlds lanyard, plus one spectator badge for a guest or parent/guardian. This spectator badge will not include any other items. Any additional spectator badges must be purchased online. All competitors who RSVP online will also be guaranteed to receive a welcome kit. Items will be distributed on site at the event. Substitute product may be provided if necessary. Players who do not RSVP in advance will still be allowed to play, but may not be guaranteed to receive a welcome kit.
Additional spectator badges must be purchased online.
Competitors will be required to provide their name, player ID number, and some form of ID to pick up their competitor badge. Junior and Senior Division competitors must also have a guardian present to pick up their competitor badge.

Unfortunately, Spectator registration for the 2017 World Championships event has now sold out. Follow the action on the official event streams at Pokemon.com/Live and Twitch.tv/team/pokemon!
