The final stage of the Pokémon UNITE - India Qualifier, took place on May 11 and 12. Eight teams from the open qualifiers competed for a chance to represent the country on the international stage. Ultimately, S8UL Esports emerged as the champions after a series of intense games, finishing ahead of teams such as Zenigame Squad and GodLike Esports. In addition to the opportunity to compete in the World Championship in Hawaii, the team will receive $15,000 from the $37,500 prize pool.

Last year, S8UL Esports also managed to win the India Qualifier and make it to the World Championship. The team, however, were eliminated in the group stage itself. This time, they are going into the $500,000 World Championship, scheduled from Aug. 16 to 18, with a much more experienced roster.

Commenting on the victory and the opportunity to represent India on the international stage, S8ULAllmight said, “The competition in the India Region for Pokémon UNITE esports has significantly increased over the past few years. However, I am glad that through our teamwork and practice, we were able to secure victory. This is the second time we will be competing in the Pokémon UNITE World Championship, but this time we are much better prepared to take on the teams in Honolulu, Hawaii. Last year, we were able to take a game away from the eventual world champions, Luminosity Gaming, but we failed to secure the series. We hope they qualify so we can get our revenge this time.”
