This article is about the tournament in Sinnoh. For the tournament in Alola, see Pokémon Ping-Pong tournament.

The Pokémon Ping Pong Tournament (Japanese: ポケモンピンポン大会 Pokémon Ping Pong Tournament) is an anime-exclusive event where Pokémon and Trainer form a pair and compete in a game of ping pong. The 32 Trainers use a paddle while the partner Pokémon uses its body to hit the ball. Pokémon are not allowed to use their moves and doing so will result in disqualification. The prize for winning the competition are six golden ping pong balls and a runner-up reward is a year's supply of special Pokémon food.

The tournament is held in a giant dome in Sandalstraw Town that has ping pong tables located outside for participants to practice. Along with the Sandalstraw Town Pokémon Contest, the Pokémon Ping Pong Tournament attracts a large number of visitors to the town. The competition was first mentioned in Stopped in the Name of Love!, when Barry revealed his plans of entering it. It took place in To Thine Own Pokémon Be True!, in which Ash, Dawn, Barry, Jessie, Halverson, Wilkinson, and O competed in the tournament with Pikachu, Ambipom, Empoleon, Meowth, Marowak, Farfetch'd, and Shiftry, respectively.

During Dawn and O's match, Dawn's paddle was broken, forcing Ambipom to continue alone. Though she fought hard, Ambipom eventually lost to O in the semifinals, who later went on to win the tournament by defeating Theodore in the finals.
