Dominating the World Stage of Pokemon

The Pokemon franchise might often be regarded by some as a sort of casual, trivial addiction for kids, but one glance at the Pokemon World Championships says otherwise. This past weekend, hundreds of competitors descended upon Waikoloa, Hawaii to test their hands at video games or cards. Their goal? To earn their share of $100,000 in scholarships, unique trophies, Pokemon-related prizes, or even the holiest of grails - the chance to appear as trainers in the upcoming Black 2 and White 2 games (due in North America this October).

The story is too old to be commented.
