Three new Pokémon Twitch channels launch to stream action from the European Pokémon National Championships.
The channels will broadcast all the action from the three Pokémon National Championships taking place in May and June.
Three separate streams – with English commentary – will be available for each of the main events: one showcasing the Pokémon Trading Card Game National Championships, one for the Pokémon Video Game National Championships, and one for the Pokkén Tournament Championship Series.
The streams will be available on the following channels:
- Pokémon TCG National Championships: www.twitch.tv/pokemonTCG_EU
- Pokémon VG National Championships: www.twitch.tv/pokemonVGC_EU
- Pokkén Tournament Championship Series: www.twitch.tv/PokkenTournamentEU
However, if you want to catch yourself a Shiny Machamp, you’ll have to be there in person. The special Machamp – created to mark the championship – is similar to the one used by Mark McQuillan, last year’s Senior Division Video Game World Champion. You will need a copy of either Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X or Pokémon Y to nab Machamp for your Pokédex.
The streams will broadcast from the following European Pokémon National Championships events:
- 14–15 May: Liverpool, UK (Exhibition Centre Liverpool)
- 21–22 May: Kassel, Germany (Kongress Palais Kassel)
- 11–12 June: Milan, Italy (Mediolanum Forum, Assago M
European regional winners from the championship will get to compete at the 2016 Pokémon World Championships, which will take place from 19–21 August in San Francisco, and has a prize pool worth over $100,000.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
