The Pokemon Company has announced details for the 2022 Pokemon Unite Championship Series, the company’s largest esports tournament for mobile MOBA Pokemon Unite
The tournament will consist of a series of qualifying events every month beginning in February 2022 and will conclude with the World Championship in London.
For the first time, Pokemon Go will feature in the 2022 Championship Series featuring millions in prizes and travel awards. For the 2022 season, some players will qualify for new age divisions. However, all players who earned points in the 2020 season, which was canceled in March 2020 after nine months of play, will have their points transferred to the 2022 season.
This three year streak is the second longest winning streak by a US-based team. The first longest was 68 years, from 1950-2018.
Pokemon UNITE will soon have its first competitive season as it is confirmed to be part of the prestigious Pokemon World Championship (PWC) 2022. This regional season will serve as qualifiers to determine who will participate in the upcoming PWC 2022. In preparation for this grand event, a new tournament game mode is confirmed to be in the works with the goal of giving players an even playing field regardless of their in-game progress.
