Pokémon World Championships 2021 cancelled due to coronavirus

For the second year running, the Pokémon World Championships – which feature various competitive events based around the series’ trading card game and numerous video game incarnations – have been cancelled in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“The safety and well-being of our competitors, organisers, employees, local communities, and partners continues to be our top priority,” the Pokémon Company wrote in a statement posted to its website, “and is the primary consideration with every decision we make.”

“After careful review and pursuant to guidance set forth by local, regional, and national health authorities, as well as the World Health Organization, Public Health England, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,” the statement continues, “we have made the difficult decision to move out the next Pokémon World Championships to 2022.”
