Pokemon National Championships will stream online next month

The Pokemon tournaments will be televised. Meowth, that's right!


When it comes to watching Pokemon tournaments, fans are all like, "Gotta catch 'em all!" Thankfully, Twitch will make it easier for them to do so, as Nintendo has announced that it has teamed up with the streaming channel to showcase next month's Pokemon National Championships.

The event, which will have players competing in both Pokemon X & Y, will kick off on July 4th and run through the 6th in Indianapolis, Indiana. Twitch already has a devoted channel for the tournament, which you can find here. In addition, the World Championships, which take place in Washington D.C., will also be streamed when they run on August 16th and 17th.

Those who take part in the championships in Indiana will snare a Shiny Mamoswine for your trouble, so it never hurts to check out the sign-ups here.

Best of luck to all participants. Don't end up like Team Rocket.
