For the 2022 season, some players will be able to qualify in new age divisions.

More information about Play's age divisions! Pokémon and Championship Points can be found at this link. More details about the Play season! Pokémon 2022 will be announced soon.
The health and safety of our competitive gaming communities remains our highest priority before resuming Play events! In-person Pokémon. The situation continues to be monitored, and the timing for the reopening of Play! Face-to-face Pokémon will be determined by health authorities, guidelines and recommendations from appropriate government agencies.
Once face-to-face events return, all competitors, third-party companies, staff and spectators must comply with The Pokémon Company International's COVID-19 requirements to ensure the health and safety of all participants. More information about these requirements can be found here.
Pokémon GO Championship Series
At the 2019 Pokémon World Championship, fans had the opportunity to witness the opening of the Pokémon GO Invitational. Now, in the first series of Pokémon GO Championships, Trainers around the world will have the chance to compete against the best and secure an invitation to the Pokémon World Championship 2022. Organized in partnership with Niantic, this official Pokémon GO circuit will start in 2022. During the first year of play, Pokémon GO will be at selected events, including regional and international championships.
The best Pokémon GO players in these events will receive an invitation to the Pokémon World Championship 2022. These Pokémon GO events will feature Senior and Master age divisions. More information on event schedule, tournament format, cash prizes and more will be announced on the Play website! Pokemon.
Trainers can get ready now for the Pokémon GO championship series. Places for competitors in Play! Pokémon will be managed in a register that will be divided into two phases. Players who reach the Legend rank in the current season of the GO Battle League will be able to register for a short period for events ahead of everyone else, in an early registration in the first few months of 2022. Once this registration period ends, vacancies remnants will be available to players of other ranks.
Coaches will have until November 29, 2021 to compete in the current GO Battle League season. The next season of the GO Battle League will work the same way for a second wave of face-to-face events. To register for these events, all Pokémon GO series competitors must link their Pokémon GO account to a Pokémon Trainers Club account, have a Play player ID! Pokémon and agree to the Play! Pokemon.
