Pokémon Video Game Championships Singapore

0

Pokémon Special Premier Events, such as the Singapore Pokémon Video Game Open, are one of the large-scale events held in the Oceania Ratings Zone.

The Pokémon VGC Special Events are one of the largest events in terms of both attendance and Championship Point payouts. Special Events are open to all players, as there are no qualifications or residency restrictions. However, a higher level of competition is expected.

The best players who have earned the requisite number of Championship Points during the season will receive an invitation to compete in the Pokémon World Championships! There are no qualifications or residency restrictions to enter, so players from neighbouring countries are welcome to participate. Competitors will need the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon games on systems in the Nintendo 3DS family participate in these Championship Series events, with a team legal and adhering to the Video Game Championship 2017 rules.

*Information on Pokémon Video Game Region
Singapore has been playing the active role of being the pivotal hub connections between Australia, regional South East Asian Countries, East Asia as well as the middle east. We embrace friendship and cohesion within the Oceania Rating region and welcome challenges from the Oceania regions to visit Singapore to be part of our major Tournaments.

As such, the Singapore Tournament Organizing Committee has decided that in addition to the games distributed by Maxsoft PTE LTD, we will allow all related regions of Pokémon Sun and Moon to participate in both mentioned tournaments, in precisely:
US Version
Australia/Europe “PAL” Version
Hong Kong/Taiwan Chinese Version
Japanese Version
of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon games and console to be allowed to be used to take part in Pokémon Video Game Singapore Open I.
Unfortunately, we regret to inform that we do not accept Korean version of Pokémon Sun Moon Games as there is no connection in the Oceania region rating zone nor distribution in Singapore.
