Pokemon 2014 World Championship: Pokemon X And Y TCG Preview Trailer Released [VIDEO]
A new video previewing The Pokemon World Championships has been released by The Pokemon Company.
The even will be held August 16 and 17 in Washington, DC, and consists of both the Pokémon Trading Card Game and video game tournaments. You can watch the new hype trailer below, which has clips of the nation's capital and footage from past live tournaments.
More than 500 invitations were sent to over 30 countries, making this quite the large gathering. The music may make this all a bit dramatic for some considering the subject matter, but it's all in the name of friendly competition and fun among Pokemon enthusiasts worldwide. Over $100,000 in scholarships will be given away as well, so what's not to like?
The event will be streamed live on Twitch and the official website. The official site was launched just two weeks ago in anticipation of the event. The Pokemon Company also opened an online store, which is being celebrated with an in-game gift for Pokemon X and Y.
The action begins August 16 at 9:00 a.m. EST from the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, so tune into the streams then if you're interested. Pokemon X and Y are the titles used in the video game portion of the competition, and the full rules for both it and the trading card tournament can be found on the new website.
