Watch the top Pokemon video game and trading card players in the United States contend to see who is the very best, like no one ever was.

Kotaku reports that the Pokemon National Championships will be taking place this holiday weekend to find out who are the United States' Pokemon Masters. Running July 5 and July 6 out of Indianapolis, Indiana, Twitch will be streaming the entire event live. You get to find out who the best in the country are when it comes to the Pokemon Trading Card Game along with Pokemon X and Y.
