Release information

Champions Festival was released at both the 2013 and 2014 World Championships. Featured in the Worlds 2013 artwork are Bidoof, Wailmer, Psyduck, and Oshawott. The artwork for the Worlds 2014 print features Pikachu, Froakie, Gogoat, Braviary, and Vivillon with two of its wing patterns: Modern and Ocean. The artwork also features a Psyduck-themed boat, the Arlington Memorial Bridge, and the Washington Monument, referencing the location of the 2014 World Championships.

At Worlds 2013, a nine-card commemorative collection was given to participating players at the start of the tournament. The collection consists of seven prints of Champions Festival in English, Japanese, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian. Two special cards were also included in the binder: one featuring the 2013 World Championships logo, and one featuring an advertisement for the 2013 World Championship Decks. Binders were not distributed at Worlds 2014, with the TCG players receiving the seven international prints instead presented in a sealed plastic wrapper. Video Game players were awarded three copies of the unstamped prints for participating. Special stamped versions of the English prints were also awarded to staff who helped oversee the event and to the top-ranking players in each division of the tournament. All Worlds 2013 and Worlds 2014 prints of this card are numbered BW95 and XY27, respectively. The only prints to differ are the Japanese prints, which are unnumbered BW-P and XY-P Promotional cards, respectively.
