The 2023 Pokémon UNITE Championship series is underway, and there’s a lot of competition up ahead, culminating in the Pokémon UNITE World Championships in Yokohama, Japan!
Over the next several months, teams can compete in events to earn Championship Points and rise to the top of their region’s leaderboard, with top-earning teams at the end of the year qualifying for the World Championships. The stakes will be raised at the Aeos Cup and Regional Championships, with cash prizing and increased Championship Points on the line. Plus, teams in the Regional Finals have the chance to qualify directly to the World Championships!
