The Driftveil Tournament is the first tournament players enter in Pokémon Black and White Versions 2. Like the other tournaments within the Pokémon World Tournament, it is held in an eight-person single-elimination tournament with three rounds. The player is initially entered at the insistence of Driftveil CityGym LeaderClay, who hopes that running tournaments such as this one will boost Driftveil City's economy. Later in the game, they can compete at their leisure.
A total of sixteen possible competitors, in addition to the player, can enter this tournament. On their first visit, however, the player can only battle against their rival Hugh, the Aspertia City Gym Leader Cheren, and Colress. In subsequent matches, a wider range of competitors can be challenged. Two Gym Leaders or otherwise notable Trainers will enter the competition every time; the player is guaranteed to battle one of them in the second round and the other in the final.
The player's first visit to the Driftveil Tournament is held in Single Battle format. This is the only time in which the player's Pokémon levels are not modified to level 25.
