The battles are starting in another exciting season of the Play!
Pokémon Championship Series as Trainers work toward an invitation to the 2020
Pokémon World Championships. Several areas in the Play! Pokémon section of the
website have been updated to include new information about this year’s
Masters Division competitors from North America now need only 500
Championship Points to qualify for the Pokémon
TCG World Championships. In all other age divisions and rating zones,
the number of Championship
Points required to qualify for Worlds, in
both the Pokémon TCG and video game competitions, has not changed.
Several events have updated Best Finish Limits this year. Pokémon Regional
Championships and Special Events now share
a Best Finish Limit of 6, decreased from 8 last season, in both the Pokémon TCG
and video game competitions. Pokémon TCG League
Challenges and League
Cups, as well as Pokémon video game Premier
Challenges and Midseason
Showdowns, will now have yearly Best Finish Limits like other event types,
instead of seasonal Best Finish Limits.
Good luck in this year’s Championship Series, Trainers!
