Vancouver fans are in for a treat with the upcoming Pokémon Regional Championships taking place in the city this month. The event will feature players from all over Vancouver, as well as attracting hundreds of fans.
2023 Pokemon Regional Championships in Vancouver
The Pokémon Regional Championships is taking place at the Vancouver Convention Centre Saturday, March 11 to Sunday, March 12.
Thousands of trainers from across the region and further afield are expected to gather. They will be competing for up to $65,000 in prizes, scholarships, and gift cards.
The competition will be divided into three categories: Pokémon Trading Card Game, Pokémon Violet and Scarlet, and Pokémon GO, and players will engage in head-to-head battles.
Participants will also have the opportunity to earn Play Points. This could lead to an invitation to the Pokémon World Championships in Yokohama, Japan, scheduled for August of this year.
It’s worth noting that Vancouver and Toronto are the only two Canadian cities to host a Pokémon Regional Championships event, and this event is in high demand.
Spectator and player registration is currently sold out. However, additional player slots may become available on Tuesday, March 7, and additional spectator passes are expected to be released on Saturday, March 11.
