The Pokémon Company International formalizes the Pokémon Players Cup, a new online tournament for competitors in the Pokémon Trading Card Game, Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, and Pokkén Tournament DX
The Pokémon Players Cup will be launched in July 2020. This official Play! Pokémon will be open to players around the world and will take place in two phases. In the first month, eligible players will face each other in double elimination tables divided by ranking areas; a way to select the best players from each area.
In August, the best hunters will compete in the final phase. The winner will win the title of Champion of the Pokémon Players Cup, as well as a travel allowance for an event of the International Championships that is part of the Play Championships! Pokemon
The competitive Pokémon community is very special, and we can't wait for players to virtually connect with each other as part of the new Pokémon Players Cup online. With the postponement of Play tournaments! Physical Pokémon, we hope to find some intense fights, in the legendary sportsmanship of the community, during the Pokémon Players Cup
