For those unaware, Pokémon is big. The franchise, originally appearing in Japan in 1996, has remained one of the biggest franchises of all time. As such, they do host major events every year.


The Pokémon World Championships (known also as simply “Worlds”) is a yearly tradition at this point, aside from a short break during the pandemic. Players earn their points during the main season at local, regional, and national tournaments to make their way to Worlds.


This year, Worlds is being hosted in Yokohama, Japan. Players and fans from all over the globe have all made their way to Japan for this big event. Prizes this year total around $1 million.


Unfortunately, not everyone can take a trip to Japan right now to go watch the big video game, trading card game, and mobile game event. So, as always, the Pokémon World Championships will be available to watch on Twitch.


The streams will be split between four different accounts, one each for the specific game being played. Info is directly given by The Pokémon Company’s own website.
