Pokémon throughout the National Pokédex—including a limited number of the most powerful Legendary Pokémon—are permitted in battle. Held items, including Z-Crystals, Mega Stones, the Blue Orb, and the Red Orb, are permitted. Also, Rayquaza may know the move Dragon Ascent, which allows it to Mega Evolve.

This competition features Double Battles with teams of six Pokémon, of which four will participate in each match. Pokémon brought in via Poké Transporter are not permitted. See the competition regulations for a complete list of eligible Pokémon. All Pokémon will be set to Lv. 50 for the duration of the battles. No duplicate items are allowed. There will be a 7-minute player clock and 45-second turns.

The top players in each age division will receive Championship Points, which contribute toward the chances of earning an invitation to the 2019 Pokémon World Championships. Players must have opted in to the Play! Pokémon program and have a Player ID at the time the competition begins to be eligible for Championship Points.

Pokémon Bank Event Pokémon Distribution - Oranguru and Passimian

A new event Pokémon distribution is now available via Pokémon Bank. Oranguru and Passimian are both level 50 with their Hidden Abilities of Symbiosis and Defiant. The Pokémon will be available from March 29th, 2019 until October 31st, 2019 to players of Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, games where these Pokémon with their Hidden Abilities can not be obtained through normal game play.

Image Image

Passimian knows the moves: Close Combat, U-turn, Knock Off and Gunk Shot while Oranguru knows the moves: Instruct, Foul Play, Trick Room and Ally Switch.

Another Bonus for Pokémon Bank Subscribers

Image

All Pokémon Bank registered users can get a cool Passimian and Oranguru.

Pokémon Bank is the paid service for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems that allows you to store and transfer your Pokémon online. For a limited time, if you sign up or are already registered for Pokémon Bank, you'll receive a Passimian and an Oranguru for your Pokémon Ultra Sun, Pokémon Ultra Moon, Pokémon Sun, or Pokémon Moon game. The two Pokémon will each arrive with a Hidden Ability that they can't acquire through normal gameplay.

Passimian is found in the wilds of Alola only in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Sun, so this is a good way to get the Pokémon if you haven't played these games. In battle, if Passimian is hit with a stat-lowering effect, its Hidden Ability, Defiant, will cause Passimian's Attack to increase by two levels!

Conversely, Trainers will find Oranguru in the wild only in Pokémon Ultra Moon and Pokémon Moon. Its Hidden Ability, Symbiosis, is useful but a little tricky—in Double Battles, if Oranguru's teammate uses its held item, Oranguru will hand its own held item over to the teammate.

To receive these Pokémon, become an active Pokémon Bank subscriber by October 31, 2019. The cost for Pokémon Bank is $4.99 for a one-year subscription. You can sign up and download Pokémon Bank via Nintendo eShop. Learn more about Pokémon Bank!

To receive Passimian and Oranguru:
  1. Start Pokémon Bank and select the game in which you would like to receive them.
  2. After receiving your gift in Pokémon Bank, start up the game you previously selected.
  3. Speak to the delivery person in any Pokémon Center to receive your Pokémon as a Mystery Gift.
  4. Remember to save your game!

Note: You will receive only one pair of Pokémon per Pokémon Bank account.

The 2019 Pokémon Oceania International Championships will be officially streamed by The Pokémon Company online at Twitch.tv/Pokemon on February 14th, 2019 through February 16th, 2019.

2019 Pokémon Oceania International Championships Stream Info

Battles in the Pokémon Championship Series will heat up as competitors head down under for the second of this season's four International Championships February 14–16, 2019 (in US time zones). You can watch the breathtaking action from home even if you can't make it to Melbourne, as we'll be broadcasting matches from each round of the 2019 Pokémon Oceania International Championships on Twitch.tv.

The event runs Friday through Sunday in Australia, but because of the time difference, each day of tournament play will start the previous afternoon in American time zones. Viewers in the US can tune in to catch TCG and VGC matches starting Thursday afternoon, while the Pokkén Tournament DX matches will kick off Friday afternoon. Each game will have its own stream, so make sure to tune in to your favorite game as competitors battle toward the 2019 Pokémon World Championships and thousands of dollars' worth of prizes.

The final rounds for the Pokémon TCG and VGC will be broadcast consecutively on Twitch.tv/Pokemon on Saturday starting at 2:30 p.m. PST, while the Pokkén Tournament DX finals will be broadcast on Twitch.tv/PokkenTournament at the same time. Don't forget to check out the winning teams and decks at Pokemon.com/EventResults once the tournament is complete.

What to Watch: Pokémon TCG

Pokémon TCG stream: Twitch.tv/PokemonTCG
Commentators: Joe Bernard, Cora Georgiou, Ellis Longhurst, Kyle “Pooka” Sucevich

Thursday, February 14: 2:30 p.m. – 2:15 a.m. PST (approx.)
Friday, February 15: 2:30 p.m. – 1:45 a.m. PST (approx.)

Pokémon TCG competitors will really have their mettle tested, as this tournament will be the first event outside Asia to permit the Sun & Moon—Team Up expansion and the many TAG TEAM cards it brings. Magikarp & Wailord-GX has already enjoyed success in the Expanded format, but you'll have to tune in to see if the other five TAG TEAM cards will be able to make their mark in Standard. Keep an eye out for a number of other powerful cards from Sun & Moon—Team Up, including powerful Trainer cards Erika's Hospitality and Pokémon Communication and a surge of Pokémon that have performed well in Asia: Zapdos, Jolteon-GX, Tapu Koko Prism Star, Absol, and Jirachi.

What to Watch: Pokémon VGC

Pokémon VGC stream: Twitch.tv/Pokemon
Commentators: Labhaoisa Cromie, Adam Dorricott, Duy Ha, Gabby Snyder

Thursday, February 14: 2:30 p.m. – 12:30 a.m. PST (approx.)
Friday, February 15: 2:30 p.m. – 12:30 a.m. PST (approx.)

Competitors in the Video Game Championships have become very familiar with Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, but they'll still have a new curveball in Melbourne as they take on the only International Championships featuring the Moon Series format. Trainers will still be able to include two of the most powerful Legendary Pokémon on their teams, but unlike at the last International Championships, they'll also be permitted to use Z-Moves. Making good use of these moves will be key—Trainers still won't be permitted to use Primal Reversion or Mega Evolution, so a good Z-Move can easily make or break a game. A variety of Legendary Pokémon have starred on teams so far in the Moon Series, with Groudon, Kyogre, Lunala, Xerneas, and Yveltal spending the most time in the spotlight.

What to Watch: Pokkén Tournament DX

Pokkén Tournament DX stream: Twitch.tv/PokkenTournament
Commentators: Michael “H2” Graf, Evan “WonderChef” Hashimoto, Michael “Midori” Tjong

Friday, February 15: 2:30 p.m. – 12:30 a.m. PST (approx.)
Saturday, February 16 (Finals): 2:30 p.m. – 10 p.m. PST (approx.)

The Pokkén Tournament DX season will be kicking off in Melbourne, and it, too, has a big change for competitors to adapt to. Matches this year will pit competitors head-to-head in the Team Battle format, where each player chooses their own team of three Battle Pokémon. The first player to knock out all three of their opponent's Battle Pokémon will win the game. Tune in to find out which competitors and Battle Pokémon will reign supreme in this exciting new format.
