Watch the U.S. Pokémon National Championships Live on Twitch

Ever wanted to attend a live Pokémon competition but felt too old and ashamed to be seen at one? Well, fear no longer my fellow Pokémaniacs! While it’s not exactly the same as attending, you will be able to catch all the card and video game coverage live. Starting on July 5, head over to the Pokémon Twitch channel for the first round of the video game competition. Later on this summer in August, the Pokémon World Championships will take place and you’ll be able to watch that as well. It’ll be a much different experience than Twitch Plays Pokémon, but likely a better one.
