Pokémon UNITE Championship Series 2023: New regions, multiple tournaments, and more

Time to find the new champions!

A new year is already upon us, with a new year for Esports, where almost every game is announcing new plans for the next exciting year for esports. Recently Pokémon UNITE announced their plans for 2023 featuring new tournaments and the addition of new regions. The Pokémon UNITE Championship Series 2023 will begin in February with monthly qualifiers for each area and will contain more than $1,000,000 USD in prizes, with $500,000 being awarded at the World Championships that is scheduled to be held in Yokohama, Japan.

Pokémon UNITE Championship Series 2023: Registration and Qualification

Tournament Registration

Players interested in participating can register for the tournament by following a few steps. All the registrations are carried out via the Battlefy platform, where players are restricted to playing in the Regional Zone in which they are full-time residents. The teams that are participating need to be residing in the same regional zone. To help you with your registration, we provide you with the steps to get your team into the competition.

Qualification procedure

Players from all the available regions can participate in the qualification process. There are two ways for qualifying for the championship:

  • Multiple qualifying tournaments will be held in each region each month. Players will earn Championship Points (CP), based on their position after each month.
  • The teams with the most CPs after the end of all the tournaments will qualify for the World Championship. Players’ CPs can be retained for them to be able to change teams in the mid-season.

An Open Qualifier phase, similar to the February Cup, will be included in the event that takes place each month. The top eight teams from the Open Qualifier will go on to the Monthly Finals competition, which will be held one week following the Open Qualifier. Players can also participate in the Aeos Cup, which will take place in March and will feature more CP and prizes than the monthly tournaments.
