This event is open to everyone, whether you’re a TCG or a video game player from anywhere in the world. The competition also gives you the opportunity to collect Championship Points ahead of an invitation to the World Championships.

If you manage to collect enough points from the International Championships and other Championship events throughout the season, you’ll be lucky enough to qualify for the World Championships — which are being held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California on August 18th – 20th. The prize pool for this event currently stands at over $500,000. 

In addition to Pokémon competitions, there is also a Pokkén Tournament competition at the World Championships. Players will battle for the final seats in the tournament on Friday, August 18th, and the final itself will  take place on Saturday, August 19th. This competition will use the Wii U version of Pokkén Tournament, and there will be a prize pool of $20,000.

Registration links are not currently available, but we will update this article once they are.
