With the Pokémon World Championships cancelled this year, the Play Pokémon organization wasn’t going to let that stop them from finding a way to play-at-home. Rules for this summer’s showdown, dubbed the Pokémon Players Cup, were shared last month. Today, we know when we can tune in and watch masterful duels with some stellar Pokémon commentary. 

During the last three weekends of June, July, and August, you can watch the battles unfold from the comfort of your own Pokémon den on Pokémon.com, or at Pokémon’s official Twitch and YouTube accounts.

Below are the commentators who will be participating in this year’s Pokémon Players Cup as well as a broadcast schedule posted by Play Pokémon:

  • VG commentators: Aaron Zheng, Rosemary Kelly, Adam Dorricott, Lou Cromie
  • Pokémon TCG commentators: Josue Rojano, Kyle Sabelhaus, Kenny Wisdom, Jeremy Jallen
  • Pokkén Tournament commentators: Michael “H2” Graf, Evan “WonderChef” Hashimoto, Brendan “Burnside” Hansen
