As part of the continuing global response to COVID-19, the 2020 Pokémon Championship Series has been cancelled. This includes not just the 2020 North American International Championships and the 2020 Pokémon World Championships, but all league, championship, and cup series throughout the year. Invitations for the 2020 proceedings will be honored in 2021 instead.

You can check out the official statement on the matter on the official Pokémon website. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the continuing pandemic, and we hope that next year’s championships will occur without issue.
