The inaugural International Championships event occurs this Friday, marking the opening milestone of an all-new Play! Pokémon competitive season
The ongoing series will feature more amazing events that will provide high Championship Point payouts (comparable to previous years’ National Championships) and a prize pool value of up to $250,000 per event (based on attendance), spread between the Pokémon Trading Card Game and video game competitions. New players interested in competing in the 2017 Pokémon Championship Series will need to create a free Pokémon Trainer Club account at Pokemon.co.uk. For those interested in watching Pokémon competitive events from home, select tournaments will be streamed live at www.twitch.tv/pokemontcg_eu and www.twitch.tv/pokemonvgc_eu . Streaming dates and times will be announced soon.
