ETC 2013 Pokémon Championship Series: The Winners

Just in case you didn't know the 2013 Pokémon Championship Series came to a thrilling (it says here) conclusion this weekend at the 2013 Pokémon World Championships in Vancouver, Canada.

After a yearlong series of qualifiers and two days of intense competition, six battle-tested champions walked away as the world's best Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG) and video game players, rising above hundreds of other Pokémon players that traveled to Canada from more than 25 countries, including the United States, Japan, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain. This year's Pokémon World Championships marked the 10th anniversary for the global event.

The 2013 Pokémon TCG and Video Game World Champions are:

2013 Pokémon TCG Junior Division World Champion, Ondrej Kujal from Czech Republic.
2013 Pokémon Video Game Junior Division World Champion, Brendan Zheng from United States.
2013 Pokémon TCG Senior Division World Champion, Kaiwen Cabbabe from Australia.
2013 Pokémon Video Game Senior Division World Champion, Hayden McTavish from United States.
2013 Pokémon TCG Masters Division World Champion, Jason Klaczynski from United States.
2013 Pokémon Video Game Masters Division World Champion, Arash Ommati from Italy.

Winners of the invitation-only tournament earned the title of Pokémon World Champion, received a special World Championships trophy featuring Pikachu, won a trip to next year's World Championships in Washington, DC, and collected scholarship money. The Pokémon Company International has awarded more than $2 million in scholarships since it began running the tournaments.
