If you’re anything like me and you went through most of your life blissfully unaware about the depth with which you can actually train Pokémon to be deadly fighting machines, now’s your chance to watch some real Pokémon masters in action. The 2014 Pokémon US National Championship is taking place this weekend in Indiana and you can check out all of the action live on the official Pokémon Twitch channel.
The competitions run from July 5-6 and will be streamed starting at noon on the 5th and 9 am on the 6th (The full schedule can be found on the Pokémon Twitch channel). The players involved will mostly be playing for points and potential entry/accommodations for the World Championship in Washington DC this August. In any case, the competition is sure to be intense as ever.
