Codename: Niantic Occlusion - Real World AR Occlusion featuring Pikachu and Eevee

Niantic has posted a video on YouTube showing off some new technology they are working on for use in their upcoming games. The technical demo video showcases Pikachu and Eevee running around and weaving around real world objects.

Codename: Niantic Occlusion - Real World AR Occlusion featuring Pikachu and Eevee

The recently acquired Matrix Mill team at Niantic has spent years building and perfecting deep neural networks that can infer information about the surrounding world from one or more cameras. This technology redefines how machines see and understand the 3D world and more importantly, how digital objects can interact with the real elements of it. Using computer vision and deep learning we are able to develop techniques to understand 3D space enabling much more realistic Augmented Reality (AR) interactions than are currently possible. In the above AR experience of Codename: Niantic Occlusion, you can see Pikachu and Eevee weaving through and around different objects in the real world, dodging feet and hiding behind planters. This level of integration into the environment around us is a proof-of-concept that excites us about the future of AR.

The official Pokémon website has announced the details for the 2018 Pokémon World Championships in Nashville, Tennessee. The registration fee for spectators of all ages is $10. Registration fees are nonrefundable. All spectators will receive two booster packs when they pick up their badges.

2018 Pokémon World Championships - Details

The 2018 Pokémon World Championships are coming to Nashville, Tennessee, from August 24–26. The best players from all over the world will compete for the title of Pokémon TCG, Video Game, or Pokkén Tournament World Champion, and for a combined prize pool worth more than $500,000 in prizes!

The Pokémon World Championships are an invitation-only event. Players have been battling throughout the 2018 Championship Series season to earn a seat at this prestigious competition.

Spectators are invited to come watch the action all weekend long. Come see all the battles in person and participate in side events throughout the three-day event. There is a small fee for a spectator badge, which also includes two Pokémon TCG booster packs. The spectator badge is good for all three days of the event.

Event location:
Nashville Music City Center, Halls C & D
201 Fifth Avenue South
Nashville, TN 37203

Play for all divisions for both the Pokémon TCG and video game competitions will begin on Friday, August 24. Top players who qualified for a Day Two invitation will join the field on Saturday, August 25. These tournaments will conclude with the final rounds on Sunday, August 26.

The Pokkén Tournament World Championships will take place entirely on Saturday, August 25, with a Last Chance Qualifier occurring on Friday, August 24.

The Main Stage stream will include the opening ceremonies on Friday at 9 a.m., as well as the Pokkén Tournament DX finals on Saturday. Then, don't miss the Pokémon TCG and VGC finals on Sunday. The weekend will conclude with the closing ceremonies late Sunday afternoon.

Pokémon Center A Pokémon Center store will be on site, giving players and fans a chance to buy Pokémon merchandise they won't find anywhere else, including special World Championships products. Badges will not be required to visit the Pokémon Center. The Pokémon Center will be in Hall A1.

Checking In

Day One players must check in Thursday at the Nashville Music City Center. If, due to unforeseen circumstances such as flight delays or missed connections, a player is unable to check in Thursday, that player should report to the check-in desk as early as possible Friday (during check-in hours at the Nashville Music City Center, starting at 8 a.m.) and notify a staff member. All Day One players are required to be checked in and seated for their age division's player meeting Friday morning.
