More details on the Pokémon GO Championship Series events were also announced. Trainers need to link their Pokémon GO account to a Trainer Club account and have a Play! Pokémon Player ID. This account link is different from the account-linking system used to log in to Pokémon GO. You'll be able to link your accounts for Pokémon GO Championship Series registration toward the end of 2021. Pokémon GO will be featured at select events, including Regional and International Championships. Top Pokémon GO players at these events will win an invitation to the 2022 Pokémon World Championships, and some will even earn a travel award to the World Championships, too. World Championships invites will be distributed at each qualifier as follows for each age division.

Regional Championships
  • 1st place: World Championships invite and travel award
  • 2nd place: World Championships invite
International Championships
  • 1st place: World Championships invite and travel award
  • 2nd place: World Championships invite and travel award
  • 3rd and 4th place: World Championships invite
Prize money is also awarded at each event.

Additional Regional Championships and Special Events may be announced later. Information about the resumption of Play! Pokémon Premier Events and Pokémon GO qualifiers in Latin America and Oceania will also be announced soon.
