The top 60 video game players from United States, Japan and Europe were invited after previously defeating hundreds of challengers in qualifying tournaments held around the globe.
The demographics of the Pokemon brand are truly astonishing and vast. While we may not admit it, it's a game that entices us all by its cutesy design and unique style. Don't believe me? Well this event featured competitors aged 6 to 55!
This championship series was serious business to the attendees, and each competitor had his/her eyes locked on the prize. When the dust cleared, the Bulbasaur's and Charmander's were safe in their Poke Balls, and the competitor's sported anime styled 'X' eyes, there stood the glorious winners."
