Competition Format

This year, competitors will be going head-to-head in the Team Battle format, with each player choosing their own team of three Pokémon. The first player to knock out all three of their opponent’s Pokémon will win the match.

There will be two age divisions for all competitors. The Masters Division is for competitors born in 2004 or earlier, and the Senior Division is for competitors born in 2005 or later. Players can qualify for the Pokkén Tournament World Championships by placing high in either a series event or the Last Chance Qualifier at the Pokkén Tournament World Championships.
