The world has been in a… tumultuous place the last few years. It might not surprise you to learn that originally Pokémon Worlds was meant to be held in London back in 2020 to neatly coincide with Pokémon Sword and Shield, alongside the clearly Britain-inspired region of Galar. Well, clearly, that didn’t happen, but eventually, we got a glorious, if belated, celebration of Pokémon in good old blighty this year.
The Pokémon World Championships (often called Pokémon Worlds) features a collection of Pokémon players from all over the world across several different games and formats, locked in fierce battles to decide who truly is the very best like no one ever was. This year featured Pokémon VGC in the form of Pokémon Sword and Shield battles, the latest Pokémon TCG using Pokémon Astral Radiance and Pokémon TCG: Pokémon Go sets, Pokken Tournament DX, Pokémon Go, and the new kid on the block with Pokémon Unite.
