How to watch The Game Awards
You can head over to The Game Awards website and watch the awards on one of 45 supported platforms. You can check the nominees here, and curiously, there is no Pokémon GO among them. The only Pokémon game we found is Pokémon Cafe Mix, a free-to-start puzzler from The Pokémon Company.
