The third installment of the World Cup of VGC, a showcase of the world’s best Pokémon players across the globe, is here. Modelled after Smogon’s World Cup of Pokemon, and inspired by Zach Droegkamp’s idea, we are continuing our yearly World Cup with 16 different regions represented. The regions will remain the same as last year.
The formats played will consist of 3 VGC 2019 (Sun Series) spots, 2 VGC 2018, 1 VGC 2017, 1 VGC 2015 and 1 VGC 2016 per week. Matches will be played on Pokemon Showdown for ease of viewership unless players have a capture card. Players who are able to stream are encouraged to do so, and with notice, the Trainer Tower Twitter can tweet out the link to your stream!
