Pokémon UNITE World Championships Season 2023

In regards to the error in the ranking calculation method for the April Qualifier and May Qualifier

In regards to the error in the ranking calculation method for the April Qualifier and May Qualifier

On April 15th, 2023, during the April Qualifier Day 1, and on May 20th, 2023, during the May Qualifier Day 1, it has been discovered that there was an error in the ranking calculation method for the Swiss Draw format. As a result of this error, teams and players who should have advanced to Day 2 of the April Qualifier and May Qualifier, based on the correct ranking calculation method, were mistakenly treated as eliminated.

After thorough deliberation, it has been decided that the affected teams and players will be invited to participate in the Regional Playoffs, which will be held on June 4th, 2023, along with the eight teams that have already secured their spots. Please note that due to this change, the format of the Regional Playoffs will differ from what is currently stated in the rulebook.

We will provide further guidance to those who have already earned the right to participate in the Regional Playoffs through the April Qualifier and May Qualifier, as the format of the finals has been partially modified.

Affected Regions:

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.
