Welcome to Last Day at the National Championships!
07 July, 2013 in Play! Pokémon
It's the final day of Nationals! Who will be the new Pokémon U.S. National Champion? We'll know soon!
Today's the big day for Pokémon fans here in Indianapolis and around the country, as the new champions will soon be crowned. The Pokémon TCG finalists get things going this morning on the finals stage, followed by the top video game players this afternoon.
Also kicking off this morning is an intense side event that gives players one last chance to earn the Championship Points necessary to earn an invitation to the World Championships. A lot of players have shown up for this competition, eager to play well enough to qualify for a seat in Vancouver, B.C. next month!
The players aren't the only ones getting to participate in fun competitions. The annual Professor Cup also began last night and will conclude today. Pokémon Professors are the judges, event organizers, and coordinators who make Pokémon competitions possible throughout the year. This tournament is an opportunity for the Pokémon Professors to play for cool prizes—and for bragging rights!
We'll be covering the Pokémon National Championship final matches all day, so be sure to keep checking for Pokemon.com for updated information!
