2018 Japan Championships to be held June 9 and 10
The 2018 Pokémon Japan Championships will be held from June 9 to 10 at the Makuhari Messe convention center outside Tokyo in Japan. As in previous years, the tournament will feature three tournaments: one for the core series video games (using Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon), one for the Pokémon Trading Card Game, and one for Pokkén Tournament.
The competition will award high-ranking players in each tournament the ability to go to the 2018 Pokémon World Championships, which were previously announced for Nashville, Tennessee in the United States.
To qualify for the video game division, players must rank in one of three online competitions. The first of these competitions starts this month, followed by two in March and April later this year.
