Sean Zhang, CEO of Talon:
"Pokémon is an iconic IP that has a special place in the heart of millions around the world, so for us to see a new Esports title emerge from this in the form of Pokémon UNITE is really exciting. We believe it is a great opportunity for us to be involved in a relatively young Esports scene with great growth potential at an early stage.
With our history of building championship winning teams in both the MOBA genre and in mobile gaming, we wanted to not only bring our professional performance knowledge to support aspiring players, but also to grow and contribute to the wider community.
Our end goal as always is to provide as big-a-platform as possible for both players and fans in our region to engage with their passion for gaming, and we believe Pokémon UNITE is a great avenue to do so.”
