How to play in the Pokémon GO Championship Series

Pokémon GO events will be open to players in the Senior and Masters age divisions. Players must be of or above the age of digital consent in their home market in order to participate in Pokémon GO Championship events.

The format for the 2022 season Pokémon GO Championship Series will be Great League.

Registration for these events is handled by the Tournament Organizer, an entry fee may be charged at their discretion, and events may sell out.

We regret to inform our community that account linking will not be available for the 2022 Pokémon GO Championship Series. We strive to provide the best possible player experience and have made this difficult decision due to unexpected delays in development of the registration flow. Registration for the 2022 Pokémon GO Championship Series will be confined to open-registration only and will not require account linking. We look forward to seeing Pokémon GO players at future events.

This schedule is subject to change pending COVID regulations, and some event dates may move or be canceled outright. Please check with the Tournament Organizer for the most up-to-date information. We will do our best to give players as much notice as we can if an event is canceled, but that information may be available through the Tournament Organizer for that event first.
