The 2015 Pokemon World Championships will be held in Boston later this month.
It all takes place August 21–23 at the John B. Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center, where Pokemon Trading Card Game and video game players from over 30 countries will descend.
This will be followed by video game and Pokemon TCG matches, culminating on Sunday, August 23 with the final matches immediately followed by the Video Game Championships finals.
Players will be vying for a share of over $500,000 in scholarship awards, more than four times the amount awarded in 2014. Each Pokemon Video Game World Champion will win a $10,000 scholarship, and each Pokemon TCG World Champion will win a $25,000 scholarship.
