TPCi has announced that it is looking for expert Pokemon fans to commentate at Nationals and Worlds for TCG and video game matches. Fans 18 and up can upload video auditions to YouTube demonstrating their Pokemon knowledge and charisma. Full details in the press release:
The Pokémon Company International is looking for talented and knowledgeable Pokémon fans to lead live commentary at the 2014 Pokémon US National Championships and the Pokémon World Championships. Chosen commentators will be making an appearance on-screen at the events, which will be streamed live to thousands of Pokémon fans around the world, and will have their travel and hotel costs covered by The Pokémon Company International.
Auditions are open to US residents who are at least 18 years old and who can attend both the US National Championships, July 4-6 in Indianapolis, Indiana, and the World Championships, August 15-17 in Washington, D.C.
To be considered, entrants must submit an audition video where they commentate solo or with a partner on a Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, or Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG) match. The recorded video must then be posted to YouTube with the title “Play! Pokémon Commentary Audition: [YOUR NAME]”. Once the video is posted, entrants need to email [email protected] with the following information:
