T1 is officially entering the Pokémon scene. The organization revealed today that it signed 2014 Pokémon world champion Park Se-jun for the upcoming season.
This move comes two months after Park Se-jun officially fulfilled his two years of mandatory military service in South Korea.
Park Se-jun is best known for his 2014 World Championship victory in the Masters Division when Pokémon X and Y were the main competitive games. His team revolved around the popular Pachirisu at the time, which was known for its strategic value.
Park Se-jun last competed in Pokémon in the 2017-18 season. He placed third in the 2017 Korean Nationals, as well as first in the Korean Winter League 2018 for VGC and first in the TCG Korean Nationals.
Fans will likely see Park Se-jun compete in Pokémon again when Sword and Shield, which release on Nov. 15, become the main competitive titles in January 2020.
