Team S8UL and FS Esports qualify for Pokemon UNITE World Championship 2023
After securing the May Qualifier’s runners-up seat, Team S8UL earned a spot in the one-day India Championship. They won their first encounter against Attitude Breakers but failed to defeat Final Revolution in their second game. However, they reactivated their rampage mode in the Lower Bracket after hammering True Rippers and Team Griffins, one after the other.
In the Lower Bracket Semifinals, Team S8UL faced star-studded opponents Gods Reign and eventually managed to overcome them as well with a score of 2-1. They then battled it out against another experienced Pokemon UNITE squad in the same bracket called Revenant Esports and successfully came out on top again.
Team S8UL then reached the Grand Finals to face FS Esports, who had entered this stage without losing a match. This ultimate bout was expected to be a tough clash between the Finalists. However, FS Esports lost all the momentum they’d gained during this crucial game.
On the other hand, Team S8UL maintained their flow and successfully beat their opponents to lift the Pokemon UNITE India Championship 2023 trophy.
For their first-place finish, this fan-favorite squad was awarded a cash prize of $15,000. FS Esports and Revenant took home $7,500 and $6,000, respectively. Besides that, the organizers distributed a total prize pool of $37,000 between the top eight performers.
The Pokemon UNITE World Championship 2023 will feature a total of 32 teams from around the globe competing for its grand title. The winner will grab $100,000 in prize money. Orangutan’s Taiwan lineup has already earned a seat in this upcoming Championship.
