The Pokémon Players Cup II online tournament is just around
the corner, taking place September through December 2020. It’s an exciting opportunity
for Pokémon Trainers around the world to pit their knowledge and skill against
one another in a battle for prizes, glory, and bragging rights. Participation
in the Pokémon Players Cup II is open to all Masters Division players, and the
tournament will take place entirely online.
The Pokémon Players Cup II will comprise two separate
competitions—one featuring the Pokémon Trading Card Game, and one featuring the
Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield video games. A Pokkén Tournament DX event will not be
included in this tournament, but we hope to include Pokkén Tournament DX
again in a future event.
Eligible competitors can earn their places in the Region
Qualifiers through qualifying events. To participate in these events, players
MUST have a Pokémon Trainer Club account and have a Player ID by September 21
at 10:00 a.m. PDT. Pokémon TCG
players also need to have logged in to the Pokémon TCG Online with a Player ID
attached to their PTC account between June 21 and September 21 to participate.
Video game players will battle in the Pokémon Players Cup II
Qualifier to lock in a spot for the Region Qualifiers. Video game players need
to have linked
their Pokémon Trainer Club account to their Nintendo account before the Pokémon
Players Cup II Qualifier begins. Get details on this event.
Pokémon TCG players will compete in tournaments during a
qualifying period in the Pokémon TCG Online. We’ve added new features to the
Pokémon Trading Card Game Online to enhance players’ experience: Eligible
players will automatically have 50 Tournament Keys delivered to their Pokémon TCG
Online account before the start of the qualifier period, which runs from
September 28 to October 26. Tournament Keys provide special entry into a
Standard format Pokémon Players Cup II qualifier queue, ensuring that each
player has the same number of opportunities to qualify.
Both the Pokémon TCG and video game events will be streamed
so fans can watch intense battles and cheer on their favorite competitors.
