The Tiny Tourney competition begins in June. Pokemon Company

After The Pokémon Company released the Mega Stones for the Hoenn Starters, it announced a new online competition to give trainers three Mega Stones that are currently unavailable in Pokémon Sun and Moon.

The online competition in June for Pokémon Sun and Moon is called Tiny Tourney and is different from past competitions. As the name suggests, trainers will have to form a team of six Pokémon that are equal to or less than 1 meter (3'03") tall. That means a lot of pre-evolved Pokémon will make up the bulk of your team, but that just makes this June online competition that much more interesting.

The banner for the Tiny Tourney shows some of the Pokémon that fall into this criteria, including Munchlax, Sandyghast, Pachirisu and Mimikyu. There’s a ton of other Pokémon you can use on your team and Serebii is a great research tool that will allow you to look up the heights of possible Pokémon.

The Tiny Tourney online competition registration period doesn’t start until June 14 with the actual competition being held from June 23 to 25. By registering and competing in at least three battles, Sun and Moon trainers will get access to the Mega Stones for Gallade, Gardevoir and Lopunny.

The Tiny Tourney will have similar rules to the April International Challenge online competition. Each Pokémon battle will be a Double Battle using VGC 2017 rules but the Alola Pokédex is not required, which means Pokémon brought over using Pokémon Bank or even Pokémon Transporter can be used as long as they match the height requirement of the competition.

Also, many Mythical and Legendary Pokémon won’t be available. Cosmog, Cosmoem, Solgaleo, Lunala, Magearna, Necrozma and Zygarde are not allowed. Mega Stones are also not allowed.

To register for the June Tiny Tourney online competition you’ll first need to log on to your account from the Pokémon Global Link (PGL) homepage and select Online Competitions in the main menu. You’ll then be able to read and accept the regulations on the PGL.

You’ll need a Pokémon Trainer Club account (if you don’t have one, you can learn how to sign up here ) your own Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon video game, and a Battle Team of eligible Pokémon.

Once you’ve signed up for the Tiny Tourney, you’ll need to download your Digital Player ID within your Sun or Moon copy of the game. To do so, select Festival Plaza on the X menu in your game, select Battle, Visit the Battle Spot, and then Online Competition.

Be aware that when you download your Digital Player ID, the lock on your Battle Team for any previous competitions will be removed.

The only Mega Stones not available in Sun and Moon, at the time of this writing, are Mega Camerupt, Mega Altaria, Mega Latios and Latias, Mega Aggron, Mega Ampharos, Mega Banette and Mega Diancie.
