The 2014 VGC World Championship Series is the first utilising the Pokémon X & Y games. Being the first for Pokémon X & Y, it focused solely upon the Pokédex from those games featuring 450 Pokémon. This series was also the first to include Premier Challenges, which allowed for small competitions that let players gain Championship Points to earn a place in the final. The World Championship Final was in Washington D.C.
VGC Rule Set: (From January 1st 2014)
Throughout the Play! Pokémon series, there were numerous online competitions that will give CP to players if their Play! Pokémon account is linked to their Organised Play ID. The CP is organised to the top 256 players worldwide, regardless of region.

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.
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.
