Pokémon TCG and video game players qualify for Worlds by earning Championship Points at events throughout the Championship Series season. The number of Championship Points required to receive an invitation is based on both geographical rating zone and age division. The very best players will automatically advance to Day Two and will receive an award for travel to attend the event.

Pokémon TCG and video game players who finished in the Top 4 of the 2019 Pokémon World Championships will receive an invitation and award for travel to the 2020 World Championships. Players with invitations from the 2019 World Championships will play on Friday unless they qualify for Day Two based on 2020 Championship Points.
