The Pokémon Organized Play has announced details for the 2022 Championship Series season, under the assumption that most play will be able to resume in some form over the next 12 months. The health and safety of the communities remain to be the most important aspect of resuming live events. The timing for the next live Play! Pokémon events will be determined by the health mandates, guidelines, and recommendations provided by appropriate government agencies. Play! Pokémon events have currently only resumed in Australia and New Zealand. The Pokémon World Championships 2022 are anticipated to take place in London in August 2022, over the period of four days, beginning on a Thursday.

Changes will be made to the age division for players in the 2022 season. It will increase by one year from the 2020 season. If a player qualified for Worlds as a Junior and is now a Senior, or was a Senior and is now a Masters player, their qualification for Worlds Day 1 will be the same as per the 2020 season.
  • Junior Division: Born in 2010 or later
  • Senior Division: Born in 2006, 2007, 2008, or 2009
  • Masters Division: Born in 2005 or earlier
The Championship Points (CP) that eligible players earned in 2020 and 2021 will transfer in whole to the 2022 season. Players can continue to earn CP in the 2022 season.

There will be two CP qualification thresholds:
  • Thursday players: Players who reach the qualification bar that is the same as the 2020 bar. Therefore, players who previously qualified for Worlds are still qualified for 2022.
  • Friday players: Players who reach a new CP qualification threshold set in 2021 or 2022. Players who hit the Friday CP threshold will skip play on Thursday.
The number of CP required for qualification and information about the Best Finish Limits qualifiers will be announced at a later date.
