    ESL Australia have confirmed Pokkén Tournament DX is returning alongside TCG and VGC for the Pokemon Oceania Internationals in February. 
    Part of this confirmation includes a line that specifically mentions the Pokkén Tournament Championship Series, all but confirming the circuit's 4th year running and making this the first piece of information on it we've received. 
     

     
    This should go a long way to ease usual winter time anxieties over the game's place within the TPCi circuit until the odd random day we're deemed worthy to get the rest of the information we need. 
     
    Players looking to visit Australia and the OCE event can find everything they need (except info on Pokkén prizes as that will likely appear on the same random day the rest of our circuit info spawns) on ESL AUS's website here: https://internationals.eslpkm.com.au/information/
    Actual signups haven't opened yet but it's recommended to keep watch of ESL Australia's social media accounts in order to catch the announcement.

    The next FSBC Cup will be the third run of the official Group Match featuring Pikachu. The rerun of the FSBC Volt Shock Fist Cup will give players a third chance at the Volt Shock Fist title. This event will run into the new year, taking two weeks to complete.
     
    Like with all of the official FSBC Cups, there will be a special title given to all participants. Remember that to receive your special title, you must play at least one match to completion. The "League Master" titles will once again be awarded to the top 100 competitors. Also, if you already participated in the first or second FSBC Volt Shock Fist Cup, you will receive PokéGold for participating in this official Group Match.
     
    You can find the full details for the second FSBC Volt Shock Fist Cup below.
