Hey guys, for those who haven't seen yet, Premier Challenges for this season have started and over 100 organizers have already signed on board to run them. Premier Challenges are entry level tournaments that hand out a fairly large chunk of Championship Points. Championship Points are what you use to qualify for the 2015 Pokémon World Championships!
Pokémon video game players will be able to compete in more events than ever as the series expands to new cities and countries around the world. Championship Series events will use Pokémon X and Pokémon Y for the rest of the year and will change to Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire on January 1, 2015.

As in previous years, players will be competing year-round for Championship Points that build toward coveted World Championships invitations. The full breakdown of the season Championship Point structure can be found here. In the 2015 season, Premier Challenge tournaments will take place around the world for the first time. See the Premier Challenge FAQ for details.

With these new Premier Challenge tournaments and more Online Competitions in 2015, players will have more chances than ever to compete!
