Wolfe Glick wins Pokémon Players Cup 2 with Coalossal comeback

Wolfe Glick has been crowned winner of the Pokémon Players Cup 2, after making an incredible comeback through the losers bracket. 

The US player went up against Davide Carrer from Italy in the grand finals of the online tournament for Pokémon Sword and Shield, which saw players from around the world compete for glory and Travel Awards to a future event. 

The grand finals became a revenge match too, with Wolfe Glick having been knocked down to the losers bracket in round two by Davide Carrer, losing 2-0. 

After fighting his way up from the losers bracket, Wolfe seemed determined to not have a repeat result. He opened with confidence too, resetting the bracket 2-0 with a relative ease.

His dominance with Coalossal equipped with Weakness Policy continued in the next set, where he was able to pull off a clean 2-0 sweep once again to win the tournament. 

It's a historic win too, with Wolfe Glick now the only player in competitive Pokémon history to have titles across every level of competition - having won regional championships, the 2016 Pokémon World Championships, and now coming out top in an online event. 

Wolfe is signed with esports organisation Panda Global, and earlier this year organised his own online tournament with Dan “aDrive” Clap called The Champions Cup.

The Pokémon Players Cup was largely formed after the Pokémon World Championships were cancelled this year due to COVID-19, with it unclear whether we’ll see more online tournaments from The Pokémon Company in the future.
