Revenant Esports to represent India at the Pokémon UNITE Asia Champions League Finals 2023 in Malaysia
Can they go all the way?
Revenant Esports have become the second Indian team at the Pokémon UNITE Asia Champions League Finals in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The team put up a dominant performance in the final day of the India Qualifier to earn a slot at the offline event.
The Pokémon UNITE Asia Champions India Qualifier, hosted by Skyesports, one of the leading esports tournament organizers in South Asia, took place from Jan. 8 to Feb. 9 with $8,500 on the line.
Revenant will now fly down to Malaysia alongside Marcos Gaming to compete in the Pokémon UNITE Asia Champions League Finals on March 18 and 19. They will be up against the best teams from East Asia and Southeast Asia. The winner of the tournament will walk home with $30,000.
Revenant’s run in the Indian Qualifier is one for the history books. The team, considered to be one of the best in the regions, had a terrible start to the competition with three back-to-back losses to finish in last place in the Group Stage.
They made a tremendous comeback in the Playoffs, though, and won elimination matches against Gods Reign, True Rippers, and S8UL Esports to advance to the Grand Final.
In the Grand Final, they were up against the formidable Marcos Esports. However, the team continued its dream run in the playoffs to take them down 2-1 in an intense best-of-three series and become the champions of India.
Revenant Esports were awarded $5,000 for their victory in the India Qualifier while Marcos Gaming received $2,500. Third-placed S8UL Esports pocketed $1,500.
