2019 Pokémon World Championships

August 16, 2019 at 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


Dust off your beloved holographic Jigglypuff card—some of the best Pokémon players from around the globe are coming to DC to battle. The tournament is divided into three categories: classic card game, video-game version, and Pokkén, a hybrid of Pokémon and the fighting video game Tekken. Prizes could run as high as $25,000, so the stakes—and level of play—are a bit higher than in the old days of trading cards in the back yard.
