Pokémon World Championship 2024 Date And Location Revealed

Good day, Pokémon Trainers! Folks tuning in to the European International Championship this weekend were gifted with a special announcement. We now know the time and exact location of the 2024 World Championships!

According to Pokémon’s own site, “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.”

The World Championship is the event where trainers all around the globe who have excelled in either GO, VG, TCG, or Unite test their skills against each other every year to crown the de facto champion of each series. And if you wish to participate, as a contestant or spectator, these are the dates and venue for 2024:

  • Date: August 16 – 18, 2024.
  • Venue: Hawai’i Convention Center Honolulu, Hawai’i

How To Participate

Pokémon GO, much like VG and TCG now uses the Championship Points System. Under this new system, trainers can gain championship points by participating in local, regional, and international tournaments. Trainers who are first to reach the top of the Championship Point leaderboard can even get travel awards and travel stipends to go to Hawai’i to participate in the World Championships! How many points you need to participate changes based on region according to this handy table:

Region Required Points
US and Canada 500
Europe 400
Latin America 300
Oceania 250
Middle East & South Africa 200


If you want to learn more about championship points, you can do so here. There will be special merch themed for the event available exclusively at the event which will likely have a pop up Pokémon Center, goody bags for competitors and more!

Goodbye for now, Pokémon trainers. Priom-out!
