International Championships are the largest events before Worlds. Since 2016, this tournament is held in 4 different regions: Europe, North America, Latinamerica and Oceania.
They are in-person events where players spend around 3 days competing. Firstly, nine swiss rounds from which x-2 players should continue to the next stage. The following day, those competitors are reduced to a Top Cut which modifies depending on the attendance. This day also should determine the finalists. The third and last day, every single division and category plays on streaming its corresponding final matches.
7-9 swiss rounds where usually every x-2 or better results qualify for the following stage: Day 2.
Top 8 is decided after (around) 5 swiss rounds in best of threes. The same day Top 8 is played (single elimination bracket with bo3) and every match is streamed on the official Pokémon Twitch Channel. At the end of the day, two players remain to achieve the trophie.
Finals are held during this day from every division (Master, Senior and Junior).
