It's been revealed that the Pokémon Oceania International Championships will be the first event to host a qualifier for this year's highly anticipated Pokkén World Championships.
The event, taking place at Sydney Olympic Park, begins on February 9th and runs until the 11th.
Day One of the Pokkén qualifier will take place on Saturday 10th with some form of top cut taking place the next day.
More detailed information is sure to follow soon but it's very exciting to get a glimpse of what's in store for this year's circuit.
The mere fact that this qualifier was announced and takes place far earlier in the year than any other previously is a good sign. This is also the first Pokkén qualifier held outside of Japan, North America and Europe.
