Time to book a vacation to the UK, Poke-fans.

Pokemon World Championship 2020

It’s time to catch ‘em all on the biggest stage in the world.

Today, The Pokémon Company revealed the venue and dates for its 2020 Pokémon World Championships. It will take place at the ExCeL London Event Center starting Aug. 14 before wrapping up on Aug. 16. In addition, fans will also have a chance to visit a new Pokémon Center, which will feature limited-edition tournament items.

The company noted that “the best Pokémon Trading Card Game and video game players from around the world” will have a chance to compete, while others will have the option to pick up spectator passes to witness the action firsthand. Attendees can also take part in side tournaments and special events. An option to purchase these passes will be available at a later time.

Anyone interested in booking their trip to the World Championships can do so via The Pokémon Company website.
