Premier Challenges are the smallest events from the VG Play Pokémon circuit. They provide a minor amount of Championship Points. In addition, TO (Tournament Organizers) may include prize pools to stimulate the competitive scene in that area.
They are played in one day and sometimes they are side events from larger events such as MSS or Regionals, providing another way to obtain CP’s.
Since 2019 the winner, adquires 30 Championship Points and the BFL is limited to 6 per year independent of the series.
There have been lots of Premier Challenge throughout the last years. Fortunately, several websites have taken care of compiling results from minor events.
Internationally, we can talk about VGC.stats where it is possible to search results since 2018. Other regions like Spain is mostly covered by abyssalruins.com while Twitter accounts such as VGC France covers the french competitive scene.
