From here, it was Revenant Esports that had qualified and represented India at the 2022 Pokemon UNITE World Championship. The team’s roster consisted of:
Unfortunately, Revenant Esports was not able to put up their best performance in the tournament. They had lost all three series in Group A, winning only a single match out of the seven that they played. They were ranked as the last team in this year’s World Championship and were the first to exit it.
One of the major reasons that it happened is because of the lack of a competitive Pokemon UNITE scene in India. Let’s hope that the situation changes in the future and our teams perform better on the international stage.
