Pokémon 2022 Championship Series

The 2022 Championship Series started up again in March 2022 following a 2 year hiatus due to the global situation. It reopened with the usual events but changed things somewhat. This series introduced Pokémon GO and Pokémon UNITE into the Championship Series, running alongside the VGC, TCG and Pokkén Tournament series. The 2022 World Championships is to be held in London

Premier Challenges & League Cups

Premier Challenges are small competitions dotted around the various countries in the world. These competitions typically happen once a month or so depending on the organisers and can provide a small amount of CP which can then be used to help participate in the Worlds Championships.

Regionals Details

Regional Championships are set up across the world, mostly in North America, to provide small competitions beyond the Premier Challenges to allow for players to earn CP. There are a number of Regional competitions each year and they all follow the standard format. They often have side events for all players.
