Pokémon have taken the decision to suspend all official face-to-face Pokémon TCG organized play for the remainder of 2020.

Dear Retailers and Organizers,

In the interest of the safety of everyone involved, all sanctioned Play! Pokémon events (including League session, Club, Prerelease, League Challenge, League Cup, Premier Challenge, and Midseason Showdown) will remain suspended until the end of 2020.

The safety and wellbeing of our competitors, organizers, employees, local communities, and partners continues to be our top priority and is the primary consideration with every decision we make. 

We are closely monitoring health mandates, guidelines, and recommendations from appropriate government agencies to determine when the resumption of events and operations will be safe for our communities. We will keep you updated.
