Update (Friday, April 9th at 12:10 p.m. PT): The Pokémon Company has created a hub page for Pokémon Players Cup III that includes links to livestreams taking place on April 10th and 11th. All livestreams (Pokémon TCG, Pokémon Sword and Shield, and Pokkén Tournament DX) begin this weekend at 11 a.m. PT | 2 p.m. ET.

The upcoming Pokémon Players Cup III, which will feature competition in the Pokémon Trading Card Game, Pokémon Sword and Shield, and Pokkén Tournament DX, is offering small goodies for the former two of those things if you tune in at different times.

If you watch the Region Finals on April 10th-11th, you’ll get codes for an Edelgoss card in Pokémon TCG online and a Dream Ball in Pokémon Sword and Shield. Meanwhile, if you manage to catch the Global Finals from April 23rd-25th, you’ll see codes for a Boss’s Orders (Giovanni) card in the TCG and a Weakness Policy held item for Sword and Shield. This is all decently rare (and the Boss’s Orders card is only going to the first 25,000 people who enter the code), so it’s a little extra incentive to catch all the competitive action.
