Pokemon 2017 World Championships winners and finalists announced!

The 2017 Pokémon World Championships concluded yesterday following three days of fierce matchups and friendly competition in Anaheim, Calif. The best Trainers from around the globe gathered for the 13th annual event to compete in the Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG), video game battles in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, and Pokkén Tournament.

More than 3,500 players, fans, and supporters gathered at the Anaheim Convention Center, while more than 1.5 million Pokémon fans watched the action from home via Pokemon.com and Twitch.tv/Pokemon.

The 2017 Pokémon World Champions are:

  • 2017 Pokémon TCG Junior Division World Champion Tobias Strømdahl of Norway.
  • 2017 Pokémon TCG Senior Division World Champion Zachary Bokhari of The USA.
  • 2017 Pokémon TCG Masters Division World Champion Diego Cassiraga of Argentina.

  • 2017 Pokémon Video Game Masters Division World Champion Ryota Otsubo of Japan.
  • 2017 Pokkén Tournament World Champion Tonosama of Japan.

The event is an invitation-only tournament, and players have been working to qualify for it through local, regional, and international tournaments over the past year. This year’s champions earned a special Pokémon World Championships trophy and an invitation to the 2018 Pokémon World Championships, and collected a monetary prize in the form of a scholarship, cash prize, or Travel Certificate. The Pokémon Company International awarded more than $500,000 in prizes to top finishers at the 2017 World Championships and has granted over $3.5 million in scholarships since it began hosting tournaments 13 years ago.
