World Championships Friendly Online Competition Announced for Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon

The 2018 World Championships just wrapped up days ago. There were some big announcements such as information on the Detective Pikachu movie and new trading card items to look forward to. A number of huge and impressive victories took place for the TCG and video games. Now, a new event is being held for online competitors to get a taste of some of the action.

Every month there is a challenge to check out and this one in particular is allowing the use of some legendary Pokémon. Battles are in doubles and cannot have Ash Greninja or any mythical Pokémon. You can use anything thing else along with a number of heavy hitters. Mewtwo, Lugia, Ho-Oh, Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza, Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, Reshiram, Zekrom, Kyurem, Xerneas, Yveltal, Zygarde, Solgaleo, Lunala, and Necrozma are all eligible for entry but you can only use up to two. This should make for some interesting strategies.

Sign-ups for the competition start September 6 and last until September 13. The next day, September 14 is when the battling begins. Qualified participants will receive 50 Battle Points. For the entire listing of rules and guidelines, visit the official website.
