Pokémon Championship Series

New updates have been introduced to how the Pokémon Championship Series is to run over the 2017 season. From this season, the series will be separated into four zones with one big event at the end: The European Championships, North American Championships, Latin American Championships, and Asia Pacific Championships with prize pools of almost $250,000 per event. With this, each Travel Award will be based on players performance over the season.
Along with this, Regional Championships will now have an increase in prizing of more than $50,000 total in prize money, scholarships and Travel awards based on attendance and will be more spread out over the year rather than in small groups over the weekends.
City Championships for TCG are now called League Cups and Premier Challenges & Midseason Showdowns will return in the VGC circuit. In addition to that, Pokémon won't themselves host any National Championships but may approve them on a case-by-case basis with prizes varying. We'll bring more as it comes
