The Venue

ExCeL London, One Western Gateway, Royal Victoria Dock London, E16 1XL, UK.

Once again, EUIC is back in London. This time in the ExCeL London convention center. While registrations for participants have already closed down as of March 28th, 2024, you can still visit the venues as a spectator if you’re in London during the event period. And to help you navigate around the venues, the official Pokémon website has been kind enough to provide a handy map:

The Schedule

Location is fine and all, but you might be wondering when it’s all taking place in the first place. Well Pokémon GO EUIC is a 3-day event starting from:

  • Start: Friday, April 5: 1:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time.

Trainers will be separated into groups. And must rise up by defeating opponents in their respective group division and then the top 16 players in the Winners and Losers brackets in grueling matches for 2 consecutive days. Before finally:

  • End: Sunday, April 7: 1:00 a.m. – All Match End. Pacific Daylight Time.

The final day of the tournament will feature the Winners Finals, the Losers Finals, and the Grand Finals. Before moving on to the other Pokémon game tournaments.

The Streams

Even if you can’t catch the event in person you can watch the tournament live on the following platforms:

On YouTube, the stream preview is already live. So you can use it to check when the event is taking place in your local time if you’re having trouble converting PDT into your local time.

The Rewards

Catch the streams live and you can get exclusive rewards for all three games that are streamed live during EUIC. Trainers who watch at least 30 minutes of the EUIC livestream can receive a code via Twitch Drops for an exclusive Timed Research opportunity to catch the Pokémon used by LNDsRargef, winner of the 2024 Latin America International Championships!

We’ve talked about the rewards in greater detail here. But as for Pokémon GO, catch the streams and you can get a Limited Time Event where you can catch the following Pokémon:

As these were part of the LAIC winning team. 50 Meditite Candy, 10,000 Stardust, and one Charged TM will also be available from the reward pool for finishing the limited-time event.

To earn Twitch Drops, you need to have a Twitch account, and be logged in. You’ll be able to then see the Pokémon GO Twitch Drop campaign by visiting the All Campaigns page under the Drops & Rewards section, select the campaign, and then watch the Stream for 30 minutes.

The Cast

The following casters will be shout casting for the duration of the event:

Not only do we have a star-studded cast of talented casters, this is the caster debut of the popular Pokémon GO content creator ZoeTwoDots. Definitely something to be excited about!

The Format

  • Show 6 Pick 3; Double Elimination

The official circuit uses a different format from the Great Battle League in Pokémon GO. Instead of not knowing which Pokémon your opponent has before they are sent out to battle, trainers in these tournaments bring a team of 6 Pokémon with a pre-defined moveset. And opponents are fully aware of each other’s full team lineups and movesets before the start of a battle. Trainers then pick 3 Pokémon from their lineup of 6 for each battle.

Each match is best of 3. Except for the finals, which are all best of 5. A trainer is not out if they lose a single matchup. Instead, they move on to the losers’ side of the bracket. The Grand Finals take place between the winners of the Winners Finals and the Losers Finals. With the Losers Finalist being required to reset the bracket by winning three times and then winning another three matches for a total of 6. Whereas the Winners Finalist can win the entire tournament just by winning the first 3 of 5 battles.

Conclusion Battle icon

And there you have it. We’re finally almost here for the first Internationals of the year. And I am definitely excited! And if you’re new to watching the official circuit this is a fantastic place to start. As we are getting in-game rewards and the presence of popular content creators here in EUIC. So do come hang around!

Goodbye for now, Pokémon trainers. Priom-out!
