Overview

The 2024 Global Challenge I is an official Online Competition featuring double battles. It is the eighth globally available Online Competition and the fourth Global Challenge in the Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet games.

A little bit of history

Online Competitions are usually a part of the casual gameplay, but they have been featured in the official circuit for some years now. They are one of the few tournaments in which all world regions play together, and it generally grants National invites in TPC regions and Championship Points in TPCi regions.

The most recent Online Competition was the Blueberry Prologue, played in January 2024 and featuring double battles. The custom ruleset allowed for any Pokémon in the Blueberry regional Pokédex. First place was earned by Japanese Myon, who earned a rating of 1905 using this team. Myon beat fellow countryman Masayoshi Kuro, who earned a rating of 1895 with this team.

The last Global Challenge was the 2023 Global Challenge III, played in May 2023 with the VGC Regulation Set C. This Online Competition also awarded CP for players in TPCi regions, Japan National invites for the top 150 players in Japan and Pokémon Trainers Cup invites for the top 50 players in South Korea. First place was earned by Japanese Joji Kaieda, who earned a rating of 1882. Joji beat fellow countryman Kaito Arii, who earned a rating of 1876 and then went on to win the Japan National Championships.

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