Starting in March:
Lent Events

Various Times
Various Locations

Lent is the 40 days before Easter. In Circle of Hope we’ll spend it practicing feeling it—our hunger, our lack, our sin, yes, but also the love that casts out fear, the presence of eternity in our here and now, and the forgiveness that transforms our lives and the whole world.

Each month the Silph Arena holds a month-long Cup—a ‘themed’ PvP tournament—that provides tens of thousands of trainers around the world a specially-designed competitive challenge and a chance to prove they’re the very best. The Silph Arena is the world’s largest global network for ranked Pokemon GOTM tournament play.

During the Cup (March 1st – 31st), local Silph League communities host and record a special tournament using the free Silph.gg tools. Circle of Hope is hosting this one. Wins and losses in this local tournament affect your player rank on local and global leaderboards
—and may eventually even earn you an invitation to compete at Regionals and even the World Championships at 2019 GO Fest & Safari Zone!
