The Pokemon World Championships has finally returned to an in-person event in London, and all of the action throughout the weekend will be streamed live on Twitch.
That isn't all that there is to be excited about either, given that there are going to be multiple Pokemon GO code giveaways during the stream too.
The championships have already started, with things kicking off at 9am BST on Thursday 18 August. However, if you haven't had the time to tune in yet, don't fear; the event, and stream, will be running until Sunday, 21 August.
Throughout the tournament, we're going to see competitive Pokemon Sword and Shield, Pokken Tournament DX, and even competitive Pokemon GO and Pokemon Unite, which are new to the lineup this year. Of course, there's also going to be tournaments for Pokemon Trading Card Game too.
Players will be competing for various cash prizes, so there's a lot at stake.
If you're looking for the full schedule for the event, you can find it on the Pokemon website, with matches for each game being held on their own specific Twitch channels, linked below.

- Pokémon TCG Championships

Pokemon World Championships codes
As you're well aware by now, Pokemon GO codes are going to be dropped into the Twitch chat at regular intervals throughout the championships. So, not only will you need to keep an eye on the Pokemon battle at hand, but chat, too.
The codes will expire an hour after they have been posted in the Twitch chat so we'll be keeping track of all the new codes over at our Pokemon Go codes page.
Pokemon Sword and Shield
There is one code for Sword and Shield - W0RLD22V1CT0RY. It'll work throughout the whole weekend and will nab you the Victory Pokémon Victini.
Pokémon TCG Online / Pokémon Trading Card Game
There is now also a code for PTCGO and PTCG - Worlds22London. It'll give you a gold version of the Path to the Peak Trainer.
