They sold more passes in person in 2019. I didn’t have a pass until I bought one at the event. Hopefully they do the same this year. If not there will be people selling or maybe members here who will let you use theirs when they are not in the tournament area.
I’m hoping this is true, and I’ll give it a try if all else fails because I’m local. Seems this should be true as I’d guess the majority of spectators would be UK based. Yet they made the wave release times unfeasible for us apart from the first which obviously went in seconds.
Same. I did manage to get my tickets at the second of the three times (which was 02:00 at night for me… ). Still waiting for news on the Pokémon Center tickets.
Oh, and in other news: my original flight to London had been cancelled; I rebooked it. That one had been cancelled earlier this week; and I rebooked it again… I wonder how many more flights are being cancelled and rebooked before it’s actually August.
The Pokémon Company International have put out more details for the Pokémon Center pop-up that will be at the Pokémon World Championships 2022 next month. The Pokémon Center will have advance timeslot reservations, as announced before, but will also have a virtual queue system for people who walk up to it without a timeslot. The Pokémon Center will be open from August 17th through 21st
There will also be photo opportunities and themed areas throughout the Pokémon Center.
We’ll bring more details as they come
