Pokémon Championship Series Special Events

In addition to the regular events in the Championship Series schedule such as Regional and International Championships, Pokémon Special Events give Pokémon TCG and Video Game Championship (VGC) players more chances to earn Championship Points. Prizes are often awarded as well, at the discretion of the Tournament Organizer.

Pokémon TCG players need to bring their own legal 60-card deck. Pokémon VGC players must bring their own game, system in the Nintendo Switch family, and a legal team. Championship Series events for Pokémon VGC will be played in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet beginning in January 2023.

In order to participate, players must have a Pokémon Trainer Club account; be in good standing with the Play! Pokémon program; and comply with current COVID-19 requirements for large Pokémon events.

Registration for these events is handled by the Tournament Organizer. Many Special Events require online registration, and events may sell out quickly. Please check the Event Locator for details about each event, including information regarding registration.
