If you want to know more about the World Championships then head to the newly launched official site by following the link. Readers might be interested to know that yours truly finished top 8 in the Australian nationals in Melbourne a couple of weekends ago and was recently offered an invite to attend myself as the 3rd and 4th place victors passed on the invite. Due to lack of funds it doesn’t seem like I will be able to participate either though, so make sure to get on the Twitch stream and cheer on your fellow countrymen as they fight for Pokemon glory!
