England stars combine futsal skills with AR in Pokémon GO challenge
What do Futsal and Pokémon GO have in common? They are so much more fun when you play with a friend.
That's why Pokémon tasked England Football players Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and James Ward-Prowse and football freestyler Cameron Corp to put their futsal skills to the test and bring to life Pokémon GO AR and Trainer Battles at the National Football Centre, St George's Park.
In an interactive video that highlights the England star's futsal abilities and competitive nature on and off the pitch, the players were paired with buddy Pokémon, (Charmander - Abraham), (Bulbasaur - Mount) and (Squirtle - Ward-Prowse) before taking on a series of challenges.
First up, in a test of their Pokémon GO AR skills and footwork, the players were challenged to dribble around their virtual Pokémon buddies using a sole roll, before taking an effort on goal.
This was followed by an intense series of head-to-head Pokémon GO Trainer Battles, with the victor decided by a penalty shootout inspired target challenge using the futsal ball.
