Footage of the Pokémon World Championships is always really hard to come by, with little more than shaky YouTube clips to highlight the full tournament experience. Thankfully, this year is different, as both the 2012 Pokémon Video Game Championships and its trading card game counterpart will be streamed online.
Just hit the link, and check back around 5:00 PM Pacific Standard Time, 8:00 PM Eastern Standard Time, to see the final rounds in the “Masters” Divisions tonight.
It’ll also be a good chance to practice for Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2, since both games have been confirmed to feature an online tournament mode that pulls Pokémon teams right from the lineups of the winning trainers in the real-life Pokémon VGC and TGC competitions.
Final pairings for the tournament can also be seen here, with a full list of trainers from all around the world who have made it from local regionals to the end brackets in Hawaii. For the most part, Team USA has been the team to beat, as America hosts the most players for both the trading game game and video game sides of the event.
