Pokemon Championship Series 2023 will be taking place in Yokohama, Japan

Pokemon Championship Series 2023 will be taking place in Yokohama, Japan

Pokemon Championship Series 2023 will be taking place in Yokohama, Japan- With the 2022 Pokemon World Championships concluding, we can say that the event was a huge success. The Pokemon Company has also revealed that the event will be coming back next year. And for the first time in its history, the Pokemon World Championships will be taking place in Japan.

During the closing ceremony of the Pokemon World Championship 2022, The Pokemon Company showcased a video. The video begins with an 8-bit version of Vermillion City from the franchise. The scene then cuts to Yokohama, announcing it as the location for next year’s event.

It is an apt demonstration as Vermilion City’s design is said to have been inspired by Yokohama. The fictional city’s layout is modeled after this Japanese city. It is a popular seaport in the game, similar to Yokohama which is the largest seaport in the country.

Moving to Japan is a big change because barring this year’s London-based Championship, the event was always held in North America. Thus, the Pokemon World Championship will be held in Japan for the first time in history.

This decision can pose a tough challenge as Japan has not yet fully opened its border or eased travel restrictions as the country is still wary of COVID-19. As The Pokemon Company has released any additional details regarding the 2023 World Championship, there is a high chance that it might follow a similar schedule as this year’s event.

Pokemon VCG will mainly focus on the latest version of the franchise, Pokemon Scarlet & Violet. On the other hand, other popular games like  Pokemon Unite, Pokemon GO, and Pokemon TCG will also return next year.
