The World Coronation Series (Japanese: ポケモンワールドチャンピオンシップス Pokémon World Championships) is an anime-exclusive tournament. It is a competition held to determine the strongest Trainer in the world. It first appeared in Flash of the Titans!, where the previous annual championship season ended. The current season started in JN018.


To compete in the tournament, participants must first register themselves online. The current season received more than 10,000 entries.

Each entry generates a profile and a score according to the registration position.



Trainers are divided into four classes based on their win/loss ratio. Each class is represented by a different type of Poké Ball:

  • (ノーマルクラス Normal Class)
  • (スーパークラス Super Class)
  • (ハイパークラス Hyper Class)
  • (マスタークラス Master Class)

The battles are all judged by the Rotom Drone and which serve for each of them to increase their overall score.

On occasion, one-day events called (Japanese: バトルフェス Battle Festivals) are held where many participants can gather to compete with each other at will. These events are held at stadiums and other such venues, and are open for the public to watch.

Normal Class

All first-time participants are automatically put into this class, regardless of any previous championships or statuses. The challenger must seek out opposing Trainers in nearby areas, and both must agree to battle.

A (Japanese: ドローンロトム Rotom Drone) sent by the Tournament Commission must evaluate and approve the challengers. At the end, each Trainer has their ranking updated according to the battle.

Battles in Normal Class follow the following rules.

  • Both challengers must send out their first Pokémon at the same time.
