Nick Kyrgios has teamed up with Logan Paul and is currently in search of teammates for the upcoming 2024 Pokemon UNITE Championship Series, a prominent esports event.
Launched in 2021, Pokémon UNITE is a free-to-play cross-platform game that delivers thrilling 5v5 battles, where players take control of their favourite Pokémon and utilise their skills to score points.
The 2024 Pokémon UNITE Championship Series will be held in Honolulu, Hawai'i. This championship will consist of regional qualifiers, followed by a grand final where the most outstanding teams will compete for a share of the $1 million prize pool.
The American influencer has been dedicated to collecting and selling rare Pokémon cards over the years, while the Australian tennis player has repeatedly expressed his love for Pokémon, sporting tattoos of Pokémon characters all over his body.
These two public figures first crossed paths in February 2023 when Kyrgios was a guest on Paul's Impaulsive podcast. It was during this encounter that the former Wimbledon finalist introduced Paul to the world of Pokémon.
Recently, Logan Paul announced on social media that he and Kyrgios will be teammates after a year of playing together. They are now seeking two companions to form a team and compete in the Pokemon UNITE tournament:
"One year ago, Nick Kyrgios came on my podcast and told me about a Nintendo Switch game called "Pokemon Unite." Given my obsession with Pokemon, I finally started playing & now I’m addicted," Logan Paul wrote on X (formerly Twitter).
"Nick & I want to compete in the Championship Tournament but we don’t have a team… anyone looking for two strong teammates OR want to form an eSports team with us?" Paul added.
Despite Kyrgios being sidelined due to injury, he hasn't put aside other ventures. The former world No. 13 has been featured in television broadcasts for the Aussie Open and the ATP Finals, staying connected to public life. Kyrgios responded to his friend Paul's post:
Let’s go!!! This gonna be crazy! @LoganPaul man of many talents," Nick Kyrgios shared.
