Thousands of Pokémon players, supporters and fans from across the country and around the world will descend on the Greater Columbus Convention Center for the 2019 Pokémon North America International Championships the weekend of June 21st-23rd. Players of all ages will compete in head-to-head Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG) and video game battles for the chance to earn Championship Points and a potential invitation to the 2019 Pokémon World Championships in Washington, D.C. this August. As celebration of the Pokémon community meant to unite players from across the country and around the globe, the event will feature as much entertainment for players as spectators, including non-competitive play, costumed character appearances and family-friendly activities.
Players interested in competing must pre-register online and check-in by the designated time for each age division, as well as meet the minimum eligibility requirements.
