The Pokémon World Tournament (Japanese: ポケモンワールドトーナメント Pokémon World Tournament), also known as the PWT, is a facility in Unova in Black 2 and White 2.

It is located to the south of Driftveil City, where the Cold Storage used to be in Pokémon Black and White. Prominent Trainers from previous games gather here to participate in battles in an eight person single-elimination tournament. Single Battles, Double Battles, Triple Battles, and Rotation Battles are held here. Special Trainers can be downloaded via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. It also contains both the move relearner and Move Deleter, as they are no longer located at Mistralton City.
