2023 Pokémon World Championships

2023 Pokémon World Championships will take place at the Pacifico Yokohama from August 11-13, 2023. Participants will battle in the Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet video games, the Pokémon Trading Card Game, Pokémon GO, and Pokémon UNITE for the title of World Champion.

Here is the special artwork created for the event:

Pokémon Trading Card Game

This product was collaboratively developed by three parties: the design firm nendo, Creatures Inc., and The Pokémon Company. It’s a set of products featuring originally designed battling accessories and three preconstructed decks so the Pokémon TCG can be universally enjoyed. This product will be offered to players through lottery-based sales on Pokémon Center Online starting in the late February 2023.

Pokémon Trading Card Game Classic

The concept for Pokémon Trading Card Game Classic is TCG that can be universally enjoyed at any time.

Merit 1: All items needed for battling have been redesigned from scratch.

Merit 2: You can play for a long time with unique regulations.

Sales plan

Pokémon Trading Card Game Classic will be released in four languages: Japanese, English, Korean, and Traditional Chinese. Their respective sales methods will differ, but in Japan, we plan to do lottery-based sales starting in late February.

More info on sales methods will be announced at a later date via the Trainer’s website.

Pokémon Unite

Introducing the Legendary Pokémon Zacian!

The Legendary Pokémon Zacian joined the fray on Sunday, February 26, for the Pokémon Day!

Zacian is an All-Rounder that specializes in melee attacks. Zacian’s Unite Move, Sovereign Sword, consumes Aeos energy it’s carrying in order to unleash a powerful attack to a wider area. Players will be able to knock out multiple opponents at once or deliver a concentrated attack to a single target. Using the right attack for the right situation can give the player the upper hand in battle.

Announcing the Adventure in Zacian’s Weald event, in which players can get Zacian’s Unite license!

The Adventure in Zacian’s Weald event started in Pokémon UNITE from Sunday, February 26, at 4:00 p.m. PST and conclude on Sunday, March 26, at 4:59 p.m. PDT.

Players can throw dice they get by logging in (and other means) to advance spaces on a board. They can earn adventure coins by completing missions on each space and then exchange them for Zacian’s Unite license!

Zacian will appear as a Boss Pokémon in a special type of quick battle—Boss Rush!

Players can take on a series of powerful Pokémon that stand in their way in a special type of quick battle—Boss Rush. Plus, Zacian will appear in both its Hero of Many Battles form and its Crowned Sword form.

Join forces with allies to challenge these powerful bosses!
