More Pokémon VGC Action On the Way at 2019 Worlds

Day one is done, day two is on!

The 2019 Pokémon Video Game World Championships kicked off in dramatic fashion in Washington, D.C., with battles and experiences worthy of being displayed in a museum. The last time the World Championships landed in the US capitol, in 2014, Sejun Park of South Korea charmed the hearts of Pokémon fans worldwide with his innovative Pachirisu-featured team.

With the battles now on Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon—using the GS Cup format that permits the use of two of the most powerful Legendary Pokémon—the tournament may more closely resemble the 2016 World Championships in San Francisco, won by Wolfe Glick.

But before anyone can join these esteemed players in the history books as our next World Champion, they'll need to get through a grueling, nine-round, best-of-three Swiss tournament populated by one of the most talented fields of Trainers ever.

Don't miss Day 2 of the action here in Washington D.C. when coverage resumes on Saturday at 8:45 a.m. on Pokemon.com/Live.
