The final day of video game competition at the Pokémon World Championships is underway, and you can see all of the action in Boston live streamed right here.

Currently, in the masters division, fourth-seed Hideyuki Taida is facing six-seed Shoma Honami, both of Japan. In the junior division, top-seeded Ryan Jaehyun Park of South Korea will face Kotone Yasue of Japan. In the senior division, third-seeded Koki Honda of Japan faces super-underdog eight-seed Mark Mcquillan of the United Kingdom.

The Pokémon World Championships also feature a trading card tournament. Both tournaments have three age divisions and this year's prize pool, awarded to the top 16 finishers in all divisions, is more than $500,000, which is more than four times the prize pool awarded in 2014. This year's top finishers get $25,000 each; the prize was $10,000 a year ago.
