You'll be able to watch this year's European Pokemon National Championships on Twitch


So you wanna be the master of Pokemon?

As we all know, this year is Pokemon’s 20th anniversary. As part of the celebrations, this year’s National Championships in the UK, Germany and Italy will all be streamed via Twitch for the first time.

Three different, English-language streams will be run for different events at the championships:

These streams will cover all three of the European national events. The first will be the UK tournaments, held in Liverpool on May 14-15, then the week after will see the German tournaments in Kassel on May 21-22. Finally, the Italian event will be hosted in Milan on June 11-12.

Finally, if you’re lucky enough to be able to physically attend one of these events, you’ll be able to get a special Shiny Machamp for X, Y, Alpha Ruby or Omega Sapphire. Free shiny Pokemon and a weekend watching others fight it out are always good things in my book!
