2022 Pokémon GO Europe International Championships Player Information

This event will use the Pokémon GO Great League format. Players at the 2022 season Pokémon GO Europe International Championships will compete for Championship Points and prizes. All participants will receive a Pokémon International Championships promo card (while supplies last) just for playing!

Players must comply with the Tournament Rules.

When you show up at a Pokémon GO tournament, there are some things you must have with you:

  • A team of tournament-legal Pokémon in your Pokémon GO account (see the Tournament Rules and check back regularly before the event for updated rules).

  • Proof of age may be requested. Failure to provide proof of age may result in the player being denied participation in the tournament, at the organizer's discretion.

Competition Details

Players will compete in age-separated double-elimination brackets on Friday, April 22, using the Great League format in Pokémon GO. Matches are best-of-3, except for the Winners Finals, Losers Finals, and Grand Finals, which are best-of-5.

Players will compete on Samsung Galaxy A52s devices provided by the organizer. Players will be expected to log in and log out during the tournament. It is a player's responsibility to log out of the device during the tournament.

On Saturday, April 23, additional rounds will be played until a champion is crowned. More details will be released at a later time.

If the Senior Division does not exceed 32 players, the Senior tournament will start and finish on Friday. Brackets will not be age separated if fewer than six Senior Division players enter.


Prizes will be awarded to the top players in each of two age divisions. Players must have a Pokémon Trainer Club account with a Player ID attached and must have opted in to the Play! Pokémon program to earn prizes.
