Pokémon League is a fun and accessible way for Pokémon fans to get together and have some fun! League events are open to all Pokémon TCG and video game players regardless of experience level or skill. Using your own cards and Pokémon video games, you can play, trade, and even earn cool prizes! The best part is that you can do all this with other Pokémon players who love collecting and playing just as much as you do.
Pokémon League events are a great way to learn game basics and get the feel for Pokémon competitive play before beginning to compete in Pokémon tournaments. In fact, many Pokémon League locations also run Pokémon Championship Series competitions designed for Pokémon fans who are just getting started.
All Pokémon League events are held in public locations, such as game stores, and are run by official League organizers.
Find a Pokémon League near you and start playing!
Just getting started?
The first step to participating in Play! Pokémon events such as Pokémon League is to set up a Pokémon Trainer Club account. Once you have set up your Pokémon Trainer Club account, you can track the events you attend and earn Championship Points and Play! Points. You'll earn one Play! Point for every Pokémon League season you attend.
A Pokémon Trainer Club account is not required to participate in League events. However, players who do not have Trainer Club accounts and who are not opted in to the Play! Pokémon program cannot track their event progress, receive exclusive League distributions, or compete in Championship Series events such as League Cups and League Challenges.
You can receive Prize Packs and sticker sheets just for participating in Pokémon League events. Check with your local Play! Pokémon retailer for availability and distribution.
League Cups and League Challenges will make their return during the 2023 season. Keep checking Pokemon.com and your local retailer for more information!
