Start preparing for two of the largest Pokémon tournaments of the year: the North American International Championships and the Pokémon World Championships!

The inaugural 2017 North American International Championships will take place June 30–July 2 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, the longtime home of the US National Championships. There are no residency restrictions for the North American International Championships—the event is open to all Pokémon TCG and video game players from around the world.

Then, on August 18–20, the top players from around the globe will converge on the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California, to battle at the 2017 Pokémon World Championships. Only the Pokémon TCG and video game Trainers who battled at Championship Series events throughout the season and managed to earn enough Championship Points will qualify for this prestigious competition. Competitors will be battling for the title of World Champion and a share of over $500,000 in prizes!

Pokkén Tournament players will also have the chance to show off their fighting skills at the Pokémon World Championships. On Friday, participants in the Last Chance Qualifier tournament will battle for the remaining seats in Pokkén Tournament World Championships. Then, the 2017 Pokkén Tournament World Championships will take place on Saturday, August 19, finishing with the grand finals on Saturday night, where the prize pool will be $20,000. Players will be competing using the Wii U version of Pokkén Tournament.

Opportunities are running short to earn an invitation to the Pokémon World Championships, so be sure to give it your all as we draw closer to the main event in August.
