Pokemon UNITE - Tournament Mode

The World Championship Series 2022 is a 5-on-5 Team Battle Arena that will use Pokemon UNITE's Tournament Mode as the game mode. Qualifying Events will be held each month with no entry cost from February to June.

It will also be available for players on all platforms: Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android!

Tournament Mode Guide:
Custom Rules and How to Use

Monthly Open Qualifiers

A series of qualifying tournaments will be held on each Regional Zone each month where players can each Championship Points (CP) based on their team's finishing place in that month's tournament. Teams with the most CP's will qualify for the Regional Championships!

Championship Points will be retained by individual players so changing of teams are allowed during the season.

Double Elimination Format

The monthly Open Qualifier round will pit teams in a double-elimination format. The top 16 teams will advance to the Monthly Finals!

Monthly Finals

The first monthly finals in February will be open for the top 16 teams in the Open Qualifiers. The succeeding months will only allow 12 invites from the Open Qualifiers where the remaining 4 will be the top 4 teams from previous month's Monthly Finals, including the Aeos Cup.

Note:
Top 4 teams will neeed to keep 4 out of 5 players on their roster to maintain top 4 status.
Taking another player who has competed in the current month's Open Qualifier as a replacement is not allowed.

Monthly Finals Team Count Breakdown

There is also an Aeos Cup that happened last April 2022! It will replace April's Open Qualifiers and Monthly Finals that give players prize money and more CP than the usual monthly tournaments!

Regional Championships

Regional Championships will be a mix of teams with the top CP in teach Regional Zone before June 2022, top teams from the previous month's tournament and teams that earned a spot via the Open Qualifiers. Here's a breakdown on how many teams will be included:

8 Teams Top Teams in CP in each Regional Zone
(via Total CP Count)
4 Teams Top Teams from the Previous Month's Tournament (May Finals)
12 Teams Spot Earned via Open Qualifiers
