2019 Pokkén Tournament World Championships Player Information

The 2019 Pokkén Tournament World Championships will take place Saturday, August 17, in Halls D and E of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. Players will battle for great prizes (including a share of the $20,000 prize pool in the Masters Division) and the title of World Champion. The competition begins at 9:00 a.m. in the Pokkén Tournament DX area.

The competition will unfold via double-elimination brackets—8 players for the Senior Division and 16 players for the Masters Division. Matches will be played on Nintendo Switch systems connected by LAN cables, and with an individual monitor for each competitor. Winners will be determined by a best-of-five format, and most matches will be streamed. Players must use the official Pokkén Tournament DX Pro Pad by HORI. Players may wear wired headphones.
