The Pokemon Company has announced that the Pokken World Championships will be held in San Francisco during the 2016 Pokemon World Championships. Leading up to the big event, Pokken is set to appear at Evo 2016 in July, as well as at the Pokemon US National Championships.
The Pokken World Championships are invitation-only, granted only to those who’ve qualified throughout the season, and will take place from August 19 to August 21.
Bandai Namco’s Pokken Tournament is set to release across North America and Europe on March 18–the same day it hits Japan. It was revealed earlier this month that Mewtwo, Garchomp, Braixen, and Chandelure will join the fighting game’s roster.
