Scholarships

In addition to the title of “World Champion”, the winners received in combination of over $100,000 in scholarships and prizes. Not only that, the winners of the Video Game Tournament will be featured in the upcoming Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2 DS game via Nintendo Wi-Fi!

Worlds 2013

In the past, the location of the next World Tournament was made available to competitors upon receiving their competitor’s package. However, this year the staff at Worlds kept the location for the 2013 tournament a big secret until the closing ceremony. Proving the rumors of a non-US location to be true, Worlds 2013 has been confirmed for Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada! See you all in Canada next year for Worlds 2013!
