Pokémon Unite and Pokémon Go will also be part of the tournament for the first time.

To celebrate the Championships, some changes have been made in London to welcome Pokémon fans to the capital.

The Transport for London Cable Car, which runs from Greenwich to the Royal Docks, has been decorated to match the different Pokémon types.

Each wagon suits one of the 18 different Pokémon types from Normal to Fairy.

If you’re lucky, you might even be able to share your carriage with a Pokémon pal, as both Pikachu and Eevee mascots are out and about in London today.

They’ve been spotted riding the cable car, boating on the River Thames and sightseeing in London.

The mascots also provide photo opportunities for anyone who gets close to them on their tour of London.

A pop-up Pokécenter has also opened in London, selling Pokémon merchandise in honor of the championships.

The store is divided into sections named after famous London landmarks such as Krabby Road, Saville Rowlet and South Blazikensington.

Selling exclusive t-shirts, coins, plushies, and a Pikachu figure with designs based on the championships.

There will also be a large amount of other Pokémon merchandise for sale.

The World Cup exclusive items will only be sold in the pop-up store and will no longer be available after the event.

If you want to visit the store in London’s ExCeL Center, you should book a time slot to avoid possible waiting times.

In 2019, a pop-up Pokémon Center opened in Shepherd’s Bush with daily queues of up to five hours.
