    In Korea, there's a League of Legends player called Faker that makes 3Billion won(2.6M dollars) a year.
    He's a professional gamer(or esports player) with a whole bunch of sponsors.
    What do you think makes it difficult for Pokemon to become a game that handles this much money?
    Could Pokemon have "professional" gamers and bigger competitions in the future?

    I think in Japan they tryed to do this with a TV show called P-Sports... a trainer go challenge the host of the show (so it's nothing serious)... I think they stopped after some episodes but I'm not sure... (on the official site there are 11 https://abema.tv/video/title/392-28 - some of them are on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLWUOq_iZ5yS_XYeDLDAHzXeI33JtYZvp4 )
    And thanks to this show (if I'm right because I dont' remember/don't know Japanese) in this TV Show they "discovered" the glitch of rollout-disguise
    But... let's return to the topic XD
    :thinking: is there some eSport of a Nintendo game? I think there isn't... so maybe it's Nintendo that don't want to have it's games as eSports... (Splatoon 2 can be one eSport but it isn't...) or simply they don't are interested ot don't want to give prize money :thinking::thinking:
