Please be aware that unlike live competitions, there are only two divisions in this online competition: Juniors and Masters. Players born January 1, 2005, or later are in the Juniors division while players born December 31, 2004, or earlier are in the Masters division.

Also, players may receive penalties and be restricted from participating in future online events if there are a significantly large number of disconnects during battle, starting from when your opponent has been decided until match results have been fully sent to the server. Please ensure a stable connection environment when connecting to the internet.

Make sure to try your luck in this Online Competition and see how you stack up internationally. Good luck, Trainers!
