Team Challenge Structure

The Team Challenge kicks off on December 5, 2020, and will run over six months, giving participants lots of opportunity to compete and advance.

In the first stage, individual stores like Gnome Games will host Qualifier tournaments via the Pokémon TCG Online. The winners from each of these individual tournaments will form a team as representatives of their store. This Qualifier round is expected to run about 10 weeks and conclude on February 28, 2021.

Once the teams are in place for each store, they will compete against teams from other stores in an elimination bracket. Each bracket match will be a 3v3 round-robin competition against another team, with the team that earns five or more wins advancing to the next round. Initially teams will play other stores from their city, and then will be reseated at regional, national, and global levels if they progress. This round will also take approximately 10 weeks, starting on March 20, 2021.

The Team Challenge culminates in a Grand Final between the top two stores’ teams in late May 2021.

Masters are the only age division allowed to play in Team Challenge this season.

Pokémon Team Challenge Format

The initial round of the Team Challenge will use the 2021 Standard format, including the Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield—Vivid Voltage expansion.

Deck lists MUST be submitted no later than the start of the event!  Details can be found here: https://tournamentcenter.gg/how-to-submit-your-deck-list-on-rk9-labs-2-3/ 

Prizes

At the Qualifiers stage, all participants will earn virtual Pokémon TCG Online prizes (including exclusive Pokémon TCG Online accessories), and winners of each Qualifier receive an event playmat.

The top 256 teams will earn additional exclusive playmats, virtual Pokémon TCG prizes, and other online prizes. In addition, the top 8 teams will earn physical Pokémon TCG prizes.
