Pokémon 2023 Championship Series

The 2023 Championship Series began with the London Open. It continued having VGC, TCG, GO and Pokémon UNITE in it, and featured the shift in VGC and TCG to the Pokémon Scarlet & Violet formats. As such, it lacked VGC competitions until January 2023 in order to make sure things were fair and players qualified only with the special rulesets from the new game
