Fans of Pokémon and friendly competition get ready: this weekend marks the Pokémon World Championship coming out of Anaheim, California. There will be streams of Sun & Moon, the trading card game and Pokkén Tournament that bring some of the top players across multiple divisions all to one place to see who comes out on top this season.
Also worth noting, there will be plenty of Pokémon love to spare with on-site giveaways, an Alolan Exeggutor distribution and a special Pokémon Center pop-up shop — and even those who aren’t in attendance can catch the action on the Pokémon Championships site via weekend-long livestreams. A special video getting people all ready for the event went up via Twitter as well.
