That's a wrap from here in Washington, D.C. at the 2019 Pokémon World Championships! The Pokémon TCG and video game finalists put on an amazing show in front of a wild crowd of Pokémon fans as six new Champions were crowned. In addition to the title of World Champion, awesome prizes were on the line, so these Trainers had plenty to play for.
