2016 Pokémon World Championships Date & Location Surfaces
After months of trying to figure out if players would be traveling to the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco proper or the glamarous Cow Palace in Daly City, we’ve finally learned where we’ll find our 2016 Pokémon World Champion. The San Francisco travel site has a listing for Worlds between August 15th and 22nd at a hotel around the Moscone Convention Center. As the 15th is a Monday and a 7 day Worlds would be unprecedented, our expectation is that the first few days will be used for setup. We recommend holding off on booking travel until an official statement is made but you can start looking to plan around the weekend of August 22nd at the very least and potentially more!
More detective work has turned up the Marriott Marquis as the hotel that has rooms blocked off for Pokémon along with 117,000 square feet of meeting room space for the event. Hope to see you there! Credit to Georgenorth on Six Prizes for the discovery.
