Worlds History

First held under the name Video Game Showdown, 2008 marks the first year the Pokémon video games were featured at the World Championships! This event was a single-elimination tournament that featured players from the United States and Japan and was won by Japanese player Izuru Yoshimura.

2009 would be the first official year for Pokémon VGC, with the World Championships being held every year except for 2020 and 2021, which were canceled due to COVID-19. The World Championships have primarily been held in the United States, though sometimes in other countries. In 2013 players traveled to Canada, in 2022 players traveled to London for the first World Championships in Europe, and in 2023 players traveled to Yokohama for the first World Championships in Japan.
