Prizes are awarded to the top players in each of three age divisions. Players must have a Pokémon Trainer Club account with a Player ID attached, and must have opted in to the Play! Pokémon program in order to earn points and awards.

For the Pokémon TCG and Video Game Regional Championships, the format of each prize is dependent on the age of the recipient. Here are the Regionals prizes for the 2019 Play! Pokémon Championship Series season.

  • Awards under $5,000: Cash

Under 18 years of age:

  • Awards of $5,000 or more: Choice of scholarship or Pokémon Visa® Prepaid Card
  • Awards under $5,000: Pokémon Visa® Prepaid Card

Prizes and prize distribution may be subject to change.

All participants will receive 3 Play! Points and a Pokémon Regional Championships promo card (while supplies last), just for playing!

Prizes are based on attendance per age division. Unless otherwise specified, all prizes are paid in US dollars and subject to applicable tax withholding. Prize winners should consult a qualified tax professional regarding their tax obligations.
