The 2022 Pokémon Europe International Championships took place this weekend. The tournament brought many Pokémon fans to Frankfurt, Germany for the very first International Championships of the 2022 season.

If you’re not in the know, the Championships pit players against each other in various different aspects of the Pokémon franchise, from the video games to the Trading Card Game. Victory ensures that the winner will get a place at the Pokémon World Championships, which take place in London, England, and take place on the weekend of 18th – 21st August.

At this year’s tournament in Germany, players competed in the Trading Card Game, Pokémon GO, Pokémon Sword and Shield, and Pokkén Tournament DX, and the competition sounds like it was a cracker!
