The Pokemon Company has announced this afternoon that the Pokemon 2020 European International Championships have been canceled. The reason is the rapid spread of Coronavirus which has seen a number of events canceled recently and probably more in the future. The company said in a statement that they are using the current recommendations set forth by public health officials.
The safety and well-being of our community, both competitors and organizers, is our top priority. While we prefer never to see an event get postponed or canceled, out of an abundance of caution and pursuant to the current recommendations set forth by public health officials, we have canceled the 2020 Pokémon Europe International Championships.
