Play, Main, Bench! | Pokémon UNITE Championship Series
The game: Teams in the EU Aeos Cup Finals at EUIC each received 3 random Pokémon on cue cards, 1 at a time. Then, they had to choose 1 they would hypothetically play for a game, 1 to main for a season, and 1 to bench in Pokémon UNITE.
The catch: They didn’t know which Pokémon would come next! See what choices each team made in Play, Main, Bench!
