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

The ruleset is VGC Regulation Set E, and it is played using open team lists. It is the first major event in Europe to use this ruleset!

A little bit of history

France has been part of the Europe region of the official TPCi circuit for many years. It has hosted multiple major events, including Special Events, Regional Championships and old-era National Championships. France’s greatest VGC success is Hippolyte Bernard‘s top 16 place at the 2022 World Championships, as well as the France National Championship titles won by Adrien Boulet (2010) and Lionel Fey (2011).

The most recent tournament held in France is the 2022 Lille Regional, played in Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield with the VGC Series 12 ruleset in May 2022. The finals saw Frenchman Thomas Gravouille defeat Italian Giulio Tarlao to win his first major title, after failing to do so two months earlier in the Liverpool Regional finals.

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