Pokémon Players Cup III: Pokémon TCG Event Information

Pokémon Trading Card Game matches for the Pokémon Players Cup III will take place via the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online. Eligible Masters Division players will compete through several tournament phases for glory, bragging rights, and prizes.

In the first phase, players will compete to reach the top of their rating zone's Pokémon TCG Online Tournament Rep leaderboard in the Standard format for the month of February 2021. The top players in each rating zone—after removing ineligible players—will advance and be able to register for the Pokémon Players Cup III Region Qualifiers. There is no charge to register.

Pokémon Players Cup III and the February Leaderboard

The Players Cup III will continue to use the new feature first rolled out for the second Players Cup. All eligible players will have 50 Tournament Keys added to their Pokémon TCG Online account prior to the start of the open qualifier period, which runs from January 26 at 10:00 a.m. PST to February 26 at 9:59 a.m. PST. Each Tournament Key provides one entry into a special Standard format Pokémon Players Cup III qualifier tournament queue. No additional Tournament Keys will be distributed during the qualifier period, so every eligible player will have the same number of chances to qualify during the Pokémon Players Cup III open qualifier phase!

Additionally, Tournament Rep awards will be disabled for all other Standard format tournament queues for the duration of the qualification period, so the only players that will appear on the February Standard format Tournament Rep leaderboard will be those participating in the Pokémon Players Cup III qualifier tournaments.

In order to receive these Tournament Keys, a player must meet all the eligibility requirements and have logged in to the Pokémon TCG Online with a Pokémon Trainer Club account that has a linked Player ID between the dates of October 18, 2020, and January 18, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. PST. Tournament Keys will appear in accounts on January 25.

  • 1st place: 5 points
  • 2nd place: 3 points
  • 3rd & 4th place: 1 point each
  • 5th–8th place: 0 points

Players Advancing from the February Leaderboard

  • North America rating zone (US and Canada): 256 players
  • Europe rating zone (Europe): 256 players
  • Latin America rating zone (Latin America and Caribbean): 256 players
  • Oceania rating zone (Australia and New Zealand): 128 players
In March, these players will compete in a Region Qualifier within their region (based on rating zone, excluding South Africa and Russia). Each Region Qualifier will be a separate double-elimination bracket taking place over two weekends so play times can be optimized by rating zone. Players will be required to register their deck list online before the first Region Qualifier date and will need an account with both Discord and Battlefy to participate.

Matches will be best of three and will use the Standard format. Specific details on rules and report times will be available closer to the event.

Check back for the full tournament rules.

Play! Pokémon Players Cup Online Tournament: Pokémon TCG, Pokkén Tournament DX, and Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield

Prepare for an incredible online Pokémon competition!

Masters Division competitors in the Pokémon TCG, Pokkén Tournament DX, and Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield (using the 2020 Video Game Championships [VGC] format) will have the chance to prove they're the very best in a prestigious new online tournament: the Pokémon Players Cup. Not only will this event give you the chance to show you're among the strongest competitors in the world, but you can also look forward to watching lots of high-level matches between top Trainers.

The Pokémon Players Cup will have two stages. In July, eligible players will compete in a double-elimination bracket, broken down by rating zones, to determine the top players in each rating zone. Then those top finishers will face off in the final stage of the Pokémon Players Cup in August, when the winner will be crowned as the champion of the Pokémon Players Cup and earn a Travel Award to a future International Championships event.

Pokémon TCG and VGC competitors will need to qualify through their performance in upcoming events. Pokémon TCG competitors will qualify for the Pokémon Players Cup through their ranking on the June Leaderboard (Standard format, Tournament Rep) in the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online. Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield competitors will qualify through the International Challenge May Online Competition, which runs from May 21 to 24, 2020, and will use the 2020 Video Game Championships format. (In order to be eligible, competitors will need to link their Nintendo Account with their Pokémon Trainer Club account before signing up.) Make sure to bring your A game to these upcoming qualifiers so you can compete in the Pokémon Players Cup!

Pokkén Tournament DX competitors will be able to register directly for the first stage of the Pokémon Players Cup at a future date.

Each of the Pokémon TCG, Pokkén Tournament DX, and Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield competitions will kick off with a special invitational event. The winners will qualify for the final stage of the Pokémon Players Cup, so make sure to follow along.

Masters Division competitors in the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Video Game Championships will need to finish among the top eligible Trainers in their rating zone for the May International Challenge to qualify for the Pokémon Players Cup.

  • North America: Top 256
  • Europe: Top 256
  • Oceania: Top 128
  • Latin America: Top 256
Good luck qualifying for the Pokémon Players Cup, Trainers. Practice hard so you can prove you have what it takes to win it all!
