Pokemon Sword/Shield – participate in the February International Challenge, get a Ball Guy t-shirt

Posted on February 20, 2020 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Pokemon Sword/Shield is gearing up for its February International Challenge. Even if you’re not a fan of competitions, it might be worth registering as those who complete at least one battle can earn a Ball Guy t-shirt. We have a look at the design above.

Registration is already open, and closes on February 27. More details can be found below.

Compete in the International Challenge February against Trainers from around the world in the 2020 Pokémon Video Game Championship Series format. The International Challenge February is a great chance to practice for your next live tournament while competing for Championship Points toward qualification for the 2020 Pokémon World Championships. Plus, everyone who registers and completes at least one battle will get a fashionable T-shirt featuring their good friend Ball Guy for their Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield character to wear.

The sign-up period will last from Wednesday, February 19, 2020, at 10:00 p.m. PST until Thursday, February 27, 2020, at 3:59 p.m. PST. Entry into the competition is not allowed once the competition has started, so be sure to sign up before the event begins. You’ll also need to link your Pokémon Trainer Club account to your Nintendo Account before registering for the tournament in order to earn Championship Points. You’ll still be able to compete if you don’t link your accounts, but you won’t be eligible to earn Championship Points.

Like in all Video Game Championships tournaments, battles in the International Challenge February will use the Double Battle format. However, only Pokémon caught in the Galar region will be eligible to compete. And unlike at live events, players in this competition will be permitted to use Charizard with both the Gigantamax Factor and the Solar Power Ability.
