The 2012: Junior Division Challenge (Japanese: ジュニアせかいおうじゃに いどめ! Challenge the Junior World Champion!) tournament feature the top four contestants from Junior Division from the World Championship Nationals that were held in Hawaii in August 2012. It is part of the series of tournaments based off of the tournament finalists. Its distribution began on October 21, 2012 in the United States and Canada; however, it was released on October 22 in the rest of the world.

The tournament is conducted under Double Battle rules; therefore, the opponents will pick four of their six Pokémon to battle with. All Pokémon will be set to level 50. No duplicate Pokémon or held items are allowed, and no moves are banned. The Soul Dew is the only held item banned.

Due to an error in World Finalist Brendan's team, a fixed version of the tournament has been released on October 23, 2012. The original can be differentiated from the updated version by the colon on the title (originally being 2012 Junior Division Challenge).
