DoKomi-Liga Pokémon Tournament

Become a Pokemon-Trainer for a weekend

For the upcoming DoKomi we will again try to offer you a Pokemon tournament, but since the planning still needs some time, please check back here or on social media from time to time. In the meantime, you can also read the following description of the tournament of the past DoKomi:

What better place to celebrate the Pokémon franchise than at one of Germany's biggest anime conventions? For this reason, DoKomi and the Grugapark Poké-Liga are once again combining forces and presenting to you: The DoKomi League Pokémon Tournament!


The tournament will take place in two phases: The preliminary rounds and the final rounds. These differ in both the tournament format and the tournament day. On-site registration will start on Saturday 7 August at 10am at the DoKomi League stand in the gaming area. There you have until 12 noon to register your teams.

The first preliminary round will then begin at 12 noon. Depending on the number of participants, the duration and number of preliminary rounds will vary. At the moment we are planning 6 rounds of 1 hour each according to the Swiss System.

Swiss System means that depending on the outcome of the match, different points will be awarded to winners and losers. The matches of the next round are then based on the points ratio of the participants to each other. The result of a round is always brought to the organisation by the winner. After your round is over, you must come back to the booth at the next hour to pick up your next match. Severe tardiness will be counted as a lost round.

On Sunday 8 August, the finals will take place from 12 noon on the Dokomi Main Stage. We kindly ask all competitors of the finals to report to our stand before 11 am.
