The Pokémon World Championships are the pinnacle of competitive Pokémon play. Typically occurring in August of each year, the Pokémon World Championships feature the best Pokémon players from around the globe. Players will compete in the three-day event for a prize pool of over 2 million dollars (the highest prize pool in the Championship Series circuit), the title of Pokémon World Champion, and return invitations for the following year’s Worlds.

Players qualify for Worlds by earning Championship Points at events throughout the Championship Series season. Pokémon TCG, VGC, and Pokémon GO players must hit a threshold of Championship Points to earn their Worlds invitation, whereas Pokémon UNITE teams must finish near the top of the Championship Point rankings in their rating zone. The number of Championship Points required to receive an invitation is based on both geographical rating zone and age division. Details of the 2024 Pokémon UNITE Championship Series will be announced at a later date.

The very best players will receive an award for travel to attend the event. The 2024 Pokémon World Championships will be held in Honolulu, Hawaii from Aug. 16th to 18th, 2024. Players in Japan, South Korea, and the Asia-Pacific region will be awarded World Championships invitations as per their regions’ organized play and esports programs. Players from these rating zones are not eligible to earn World Championships invitations through Championship Points or through automatic invites earned by winning Regional or International Championships.
