ESL Australia have confirmed that Pokkén Tournament DX is returning alongside TCG and VGC for the Pokémon Oceania International Championships 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 Pokémon Company International's 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 Oceania 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.
Signups have now opened for the qualifier, pre-registration can be found here: https://internationals.eslpkm.com.au/entry/
Check in times for Pokkén players at the event are as follows:
Friday 15th February 5:00pm – 8:00pm
Saturday 16th February 7:30am – 8:30am (late check in only via prior contact)
Registration costs $70 AUD for players born in 2003 or earlier, and $40 AUD for players born in 2004 and later.
It's advised to know or acquire your PlayPokemon! ID from the Pokemon website as it is a usual requirement in order to receive prizes from the circuit.
Good luck everyone!
