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

The ruleset is VGC Regulation Set F, and it is played using open team lists. It is the first 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, as well as another International Championship second place achieved by Thiago Lattanzi.

The most recent tournament held in Brazil was the 2024 Latin America International Championships, hosted in São Paulo and played in the VGC Regulation Set E in November 2023. The finals saw 2020 OCIC Champion Marco Silva defeat Brazilian Thiago Lattanzi to win his record-tying second International Championship title!

It is the first ever major event in the State of Goiás!

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