The Curitiba Regional Championships is an official TPCi Regional-level event for Pokémon VGC, TCG and Pokémon GO. It is the first Regional of the 2024 season in the Latin American circuit.

The ruleset is VGC Regulation Set D, and it is played using open team lists. It is the only major event in Latin America to use this ruleset.

A little bit of history

Brazil has been part of the Latin America region of the official TPCI circuit for many years. It has hosted multiple major events, including Special Events and all editions of the Latin America International Championships. Brazil’s greatest VGC successes are the top 16 finish at the 2019 World Championships and the 2 International Championship second places achieved by Gabriel Agati.

The most recent tournament held in Brazil was the 2023 São Paulo Regional, played in the VGC Regulation Set C in May 2023. The finals saw Argentinian Joaquín Salerno defeat 2018 World Champion Paul Ruiz.

The last time there was an event in the State of Paraná was the 2019 Curitiba Special Event, played in Pokémon Ultra Sun & Pokémon Ultra Moon with the VGC19 Ultra Series ruleset in June 2019. The tournament saw Brazilian Hugo Nascimento end in first place over fellow compatriot Yan Sym.

American James Evans, the 2018 Senior Division World Champion, defeated Brazilian Gabriel Agati in the NAIC finals.
