More about the Gaimin Gladiators’ new Pokémon UNITE team
Prior to joining the Gaimin Gladiators, the members of TTV made names for themselves thanks to their dominant performances at online UNITE tournaments. Since October of 2021, they have won the majority of tournaments they entered. In addition, TTV have not placed lower than fourth at a major online tournament.
Currently, TTV are considered the best Pokémon UNITE team in the world. As a result, they will be the favorites to succeed throughout the Pokémon UNITE Championship Series. They will now aim for first place as the most prominent team competing for a professional esports organization.
Outside of Pokémon UNITE, the Gaimin Gladiators have teams in Dota 2 and Warcraft III. The organization also includes a number of content creators, fighting game players and card game players.
Notably, the Gaimin Gladiators recently won the Western Europe Dota Pro Circuit regional finals. After signing Team Tickles shortly before the beginning of the regional finals, they went on to beat regular season champions Team Liquid in the grand finals.
