Celebrating South America’s First Pokémon GO Safari Zone!

Trainers, Thank you so much for visiting the Porto Alegre Safari Zone throughout the three-day event last weekend! We are astounded by the Trainers who journeyed from around the world to enjoy our very first Safari Zone in Brazil.

Throughout the weekend, tens of thousands of Trainers visited the recently revitalized Guaíba riverbank in Porto Alegre. Trainers from all over the world socialized and played together in Team Lounges while enjoying refreshing river breezes in the warm summer weather.

Whether relaxing while grabbing a bite to eat from local food vendors near the Gasômetro or hatching Eggs around the Marinha do Brasil park, Trainers caught Relicanth and Unown as they explored the Porto Alegre Safari Zone. Psyduck, Bagon, Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup appeared more often, too—not only in the Safari Zone but also all over Brazil in celebration of this special event! Over the weekend, Shiny Psyduck appeared around the world, allowing our global Trainers to join in the fun.

Along with being our premier Safari Zone in Brazil, this was also our very first time hosting a Pokémon GO Safari Zone in South America. We are so delighted that Trainers were able to enjoy this momentous event with us.

Stay tuned for details about our upcoming events—we’re excited for what’s to come, and we’d love for you to join us on the journey ahead! Until then, let’s GO!

The 2019 Pokémon Oceania International Championships will be officially streamed by The Pokémon Company online at Twitch.tv/Pokemon on February 14th, 2019 through February 16th, 2019.

2019 Pokémon Oceania International Championships Stream Info

Battles in the Pokémon Championship Series will heat up as competitors head down under for the second of this season's four International Championships February 14–16, 2019 (in US time zones). You can watch the breathtaking action from home even if you can't make it to Melbourne, as we'll be broadcasting matches from each round of the 2019 Pokémon Oceania International Championships on Twitch.tv.

The event runs Friday through Sunday in Australia, but because of the time difference, each day of tournament play will start the previous afternoon in American time zones. Viewers in the US can tune in to catch TCG and VGC matches starting Thursday afternoon, while the Pokkén Tournament DX matches will kick off Friday afternoon. Each game will have its own stream, so make sure to tune in to your favorite game as competitors battle toward the 2019 Pokémon World Championships and thousands of dollars' worth of prizes.

The final rounds for the Pokémon TCG and VGC will be broadcast consecutively on Twitch.tv/Pokemon on Saturday starting at 2:30 p.m. PST, while the Pokkén Tournament DX finals will be broadcast on Twitch.tv/PokkenTournament at the same time. Don't forget to check out the winning teams and decks at Pokemon.com/EventResults once the tournament is complete.

What to Watch: Pokémon TCG

Pokémon TCG stream: Twitch.tv/PokemonTCG
Commentators: Joe Bernard, Cora Georgiou, Ellis Longhurst, Kyle “Pooka” Sucevich

Thursday, February 14: 2:30 p.m. – 2:15 a.m. PST (approx.)
Friday, February 15: 2:30 p.m. – 1:45 a.m. PST (approx.)

Pokémon TCG competitors will really have their mettle tested, as this tournament will be the first event outside Asia to permit the Sun & Moon—Team Up expansion and the many TAG TEAM cards it brings. Magikarp & Wailord-GX has already enjoyed success in the Expanded format, but you'll have to tune in to see if the other five TAG TEAM cards will be able to make their mark in Standard. Keep an eye out for a number of other powerful cards from Sun & Moon—Team Up, including powerful Trainer cards Erika's Hospitality and Pokémon Communication and a surge of Pokémon that have performed well in Asia: Zapdos, Jolteon-GX, Tapu Koko Prism Star, Absol, and Jirachi.

What to Watch: Pokémon VGC

Pokémon VGC stream: Twitch.tv/Pokemon
Commentators: Labhaoisa Cromie, Adam Dorricott, Duy Ha, Gabby Snyder

Thursday, February 14: 2:30 p.m. – 12:30 a.m. PST (approx.)
Friday, February 15: 2:30 p.m. – 12:30 a.m. PST (approx.)

Competitors in the Video Game Championships have become very familiar with Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, but they'll still have a new curveball in Melbourne as they take on the only International Championships featuring the Moon Series format. Trainers will still be able to include two of the most powerful Legendary Pokémon on their teams, but unlike at the last International Championships, they'll also be permitted to use Z-Moves. Making good use of these moves will be key—Trainers still won't be permitted to use Primal Reversion or Mega Evolution, so a good Z-Move can easily make or break a game. A variety of Legendary Pokémon have starred on teams so far in the Moon Series, with Groudon, Kyogre, Lunala, Xerneas, and Yveltal spending the most time in the spotlight.

What to Watch: Pokkén Tournament DX

Pokkén Tournament DX stream: Twitch.tv/PokkenTournament
Commentators: Michael “H2” Graf, Evan “WonderChef” Hashimoto, Michael “Midori” Tjong

Friday, February 15: 2:30 p.m. – 12:30 a.m. PST (approx.)
Saturday, February 16 (Finals): 2:30 p.m. – 10 p.m. PST (approx.)

The Pokkén Tournament DX season will be kicking off in Melbourne, and it, too, has a big change for competitors to adapt to. Matches this year will pit competitors head-to-head in the Team Battle format, where each player chooses their own team of three Battle Pokémon. The first player to knock out all three of their opponent's Battle Pokémon will win the game. Tune in to find out which competitors and Battle Pokémon will reign supreme in this exciting new format.
