Card Game players in Australia and New Zealand should prepare themselves as Play!
Pokémon events will be returning on March 6, 2021. You’ll once again be able to
visit stores hosting Play! Pokémon events to participate in Pokémon League and
Prerelease tournaments against other players. For questions or concerns
regarding events at participating stores, please see the Play! Pokémon COVID-19
The brand-new Event Locator is
now available to help players discover events. Currently, the Event Locator
will only show events for Australia and New Zealand.
In-person events in
other areas remain suspended, but conditions will be consistently reviewed for
future re-openings. In the meantime, Players Cup, Team Challenge, and League at Home continue to be available to eligible
players in all participating countries.
In more Play! Pokémon news, the new Pokémon Event Manager (PEM) has launched and will help Professors and Tournament Organizers create and track Play! Pokémon events. The initial version of the new PEM is available only in English. Event
organizers in countries outside Australia and New Zealand can continue to test
PEM, but please note that Team Challenge tournaments will continue to run with
Tournament Operations Manager (TOM) software.
