Skyesports League Returns With Pokémon UNITE Action In A City-Based Format

Skyesports League, one of India’s most anticipated esports IPs, is back in 2023 with a new game joining the city-based IP for the first time. This year, Pokémon UNITE will be added to the mix, and fans are getting excited. Eight city-based teams will battle it out for the title and a share of the humongous Rs. 10,00,000 prize pool.

The unique city-based format of the Skyesports League paves the way for regionalisation, making it all the more popular. The eight teams participating in the Skyesports League 2023 – Pokémon UNITE are as follows:

  • Bengaluru Crushers: Gods Reign
  • Mumbai Aces: S8UL
  • Hyderabad Nawabs: Marcos Gaming
  • Chennai Cluthchers: Revenant Esports
  • Pune Pros: GodLike Esports
  • Delhi Dragons: 7Sea Esports
  • Punjab Pinnacles: FS Esports
  • Kolkata Tridents: True Rippers

What’s more, fans are in for a treat as the teams will also feature an influencer in their rosters, such as Mortal, 8Bit Mercy, Savage Girl Gaming, and Saumraj, among others.

The Skyesports League 2023 – Pokémon UNITE will take place across a league stage and the playoffs from April 24 to May 10. During the League Stage, the teams will compete against each other in a single round-robin format. The top four teams will then advance to the Playoffs, where the first-ever Pokémon UNITE champions of the Skyesports League will be crowned.

The League Stage is scheduled to take place from April 24 to May 7, while the Playoffs action will happen between May 8 and 10. Fans can catch all the action live on the Skyesports YouTube channel in both English and Hindi.

Founder and CEO of Skyesports, Shiva Nandy, expressed his excitement on the return of the Skyesports League with Pokémon UNITE. He said, “With the IPL frenzy engulfing the country, we are thrilled to bring a similar city-based action for esports fans. Pokémon UNITE is quickly becoming one of the leading esports titles in India, and it’s high time that the game gets a tournament of this scale. The city-based format will ensure a deeper regional penetration for the title for the first time in the country. This is a model we have implemented before as well with VALORANT in 2021, which is to date the most viewed single tournament for the PC title in India.”
