And less than 30 minutes ago, the final round came to a finish, with the following people winning the highest title of Pokemon World Champion: Junior: Jun Hasebe (Japan) Senior: Jeremy Scharff-Kim (USA) Master: Tom Roos (Finland) Congratulations to all the winners!

Lastly, this World Championship also saw several very interesting occurances. In no particular order, they are: Hiroki Yano becomes the first person to make the Finals in 2 seperate World Championships (he got 1st in Juniors last year, and got 2nd in Juniors this year). Half of the Top4 players (6/12) came from a single country (Japan). Tsuguyoshi Yamoto becomes only the second Master player to make the Top4 twice (the other being Jeremy Maron). Jeremy Maron and Jason Klackzynski are now the only Master players to win Worlds one year, and not make the cut in a subsequent year. Jeremy Scharff-Kim is now the 3rd World Champion to come from the state of Washington (after Mindy Lambkee, Juniors Champ in 2002, and Stuart Benson, Senior Champ in 2005). Cya next year!
