Pokémon Unite Asia Champions League: India League is a competition run by Skyesports in collaboration with The Pokémon Company which gives two Indian teams the opportunity to face off against foreign teams.
The Pokémon tournament is ongoing. Other three tournaments namely, Skyesports Grandslam, WD Black Cup season 4 and Tecno Pova CODM Cup will also be held in India. The details of these are expected to be announced soon.
The final two tournaments from the above list will be held concurrently for the Middle East and Southeast Asia. Due to the ban on PUBG Mobile in India, there would be no cross-regional competition for these tournaments.
The Tecno Pova CODM Cup is slated to be the biggest esports tournament in mobile gaming in India according to Skyesports. The company revealed that both amateur and professional players will have the opportunity to compete in a year-long tournament format across several seasons.
While focusing on the mobile esports section, Skyesports has also focused on PC games like CS:GO and Dota 2. The company had organized AMD Skyesports Championship 4.0 in December last year at the Bombay Exhibition Center, NESCO at Goregaon, Mumbai.
The tournament focused on the OG games that started the esports trend worldwide and attempted to rejuvenate interest in the two video game franchises along with bringing the games to the mainstream esports market in India.
