We finally have more details regarding the Pokemon GO Championship Series that will inevitably lead to the 2022 Pokemon World Championships. Next year will bring live, in-person Pokemon GO competitions, and that means Regional and International Championships. The very best Trainers can earn their place at the Pokemon World Championships as well as prize money, and other interesting rewards.

Who can play in the Pokemon GO Championship Series

Events in Pokemon GO will be open to the Senior and Masters age divisions. 

Format

The format for the 2022 Pokemon GO Championship Series will be the Great League.

Registration

Everyone interested will be able to register for Pokemon GO Championship Series events via a two-phase registration window.

  • Early Registration: Available to players who achieve Legend Rank in a GO Battle League season. This will be a short early registration window.
  • Open Registration: Will take place after the early registration window closes. The remaining spots will be available to all players, regardless of their rank.

When to Register

Online registration will be available in January 2022 and be handled by the tournament organizers. Note that an entry fee may apply and that the events may sell out.

How to Register

The first step will be linking your Pokemon GO account to a Trainer Club account. Next, you'll need a Play! Pokemon Player ID. Note that this account link is different from the system you currently use to log in to Pokemon GO.

Players will be able to link their accounts for Pokemon GO Championship Series registration closer to the end of 2021. More details will also be available at that time, via the Event Locator.

Pokémon GO Championship Series events

Regional and International Championships will feature Pokemon GO and the players who manage to claim the top spots at these events will win an invite to the 2022 Pokemon World Championships .
