Graphic for the International Challenge June, showing Hydreigon, Talonflame, and Heatran.

The International Challenge series are opportunities for competitive VG players to earn Championship Points toward an invite to the World Championships by participating in wifi competitions. Registration stays open for a week or so, and is done through Pokemon Global Link and the participant’s format-legal version copy of the Pokemon video game. After registration closes, the competition typically lasts for 4-5 days over the following weekend, often with a restriction on how many battles can be played in a single day. When the competition ends, results are tabulated, and are often posted within the next two weeks.
