Pokémon TCG: Play! Pokémon Live Competitions and Events Remain Suspended Through 2020


The Pokemon Company and Play! Pokemon have announced that live competitions and events will remain suspended for the rest of 2020. TCPI expects resumption of events sometime early 2021. Until then you can Play! Pokemon at Home with events like the upcoming Players Cup II and a new TCGO series named Play! Pokemon Team Challenge.

"Since the initial announcement in March that all Play! Pokémon Program events would be cancelled, we've been closely monitoring the global health pandemic. In keeping with a commitment to ensure the safety of fans, players, and organizers, the Organized Play team is continuing to assess the situation. As of September 2020, we have determined that the Play! Pokémon Program will remain suspended through the remainder of 2020.

Please check back in November 2020 for more details and announcements regarding our Play! Pokémon program in early 2021.

In the meantime, Pokémon Trading Card Game players can continue to participate in League at Home events. We will also be providing additional details about a new Pokémon TCG Online series named Play! Pokémon Team Challenge launching later this year.

Until we can all play together in person again, stay safe and enjoy playing and battling online."
