Trainers,

We’re excited to announce that Pokémon GO will be featured in Twitch Rivals: Mobile Showdown, presented by Samsung!

Tune in to the Twitch Rivals stream on Wednesday, October 13, 2021, at 3:00 p.m. PDT (GMT −7) to watch high-profile streamers team up and duke it out in a catch-and-battle event for prizes! In this format, Trainers will battle with Pokémon they catch during the event. It’ll be an exciting challenge that’ll test these Trainers’ overall skills!

  • Phase 1: Catch—Teams will have one hour to catch as many Pokémon as possible to create their battle parties. Participants will use brand-new accounts with unique gameplay settings, and they’ll need to strategize and collaborate with their teammates.
  • Phase 2: Battle—Teams will battle with the Pokémon they caught in a round-robin tournament! Specific rules will be in place to add a new level of depth and strategy.

Be sure to show your support with #PokemonGO and #GOBattle on the day of the stream! Let’s GO!
