All Ages Welcome!! Pokémon Organized Play separates players into three age divisions; Junior, Senior and Masters. The age division that a player participates in is set at the beginning of the tournament season, based on their year of birth, and does not change over the course of that season. This allows players to compete against the same pool of opponents over the course of the season.

The age divisions are as follows: • Junior Division: Born in 1998 or later • Senior Division: Born in 1994, 1995, 1996 or 1997 • Masters Division: Born in 1993 or earlier
