The Contest will be hosted on ThePokeBreakers Twitch channel at various times as determined solely by Sponsor.
Sponsor will announce Contests through Twitch or through social media channels from time to time. Sponsor has no obligation to provide any prior notice before beginning a Contest.

How To Play
A Contest will be a points based trivia game where Players will attempt to answer a sequence of questions correctly, and earn points for each correct answer. Players will earn the points designated per question, which shall increase over time throughout the trivia game, and may earn additional points for answering a trivia game question quickly within the designated time frame. Any Player who answers each question correctly shall earn points and will have an opportunity to be selected as a winner of the game (each, a “Winner”). There may be more than one Winner of any given Contest.
Play a Contest by completing each of the following steps:
- Login to your Twitch account and navigate to ThePokeBreakers Channel.
- Engage with the Twitch extension on top of the video player and enter your email or as prompted.
- When the Contest begins, you will have a set amount of time (e.g. 10 seconds) to answer each question (this amount of time may vary between Contests).
- Answer questions correctly to earn points, and each point provides an opportunity to be selected a Winner, the more points you earn the greater your chances of being a Winner.
- If you are a Winner, follow the prompts and provide the requested information and click “submit” to be eligible for your portion of the Prize.
The Winners, upon providing the requested information and completion of all verifications and obligation requirements described in these Official Rules, will receive a prize which will be determined in Sponsor’s sole discretion and may vary between Contests (the "Prize"). If no Player answers all questions correctly there will be no Winner.
In a “split” Prize format, each Winner will receive their pro rata portion of the total Prize for that Contest. If there is one Winner, that Player will receive the entire Prize. If there are multiple Winners they will split the Prize evenly.
In a “flat” Prize format, each Winner will receive an equal Prize amount (e.g. $100 per Winner).
Sponsor will only issue a Prize and any accompanying tax forms to the individual identified in the account information for the winning account. Sponsor will use your account information to contact and verify Winners. Out of date or incorrect account information at the time you enter a Contest may disqualify you from receiving a Prize. Failure to provide valid, working contact information in connection with your account may result in termination of that account and forfeiture of any Prizes awarded.
The Prize may be distributed Sponsor or a designated third party. If by a third party, Winners must also follow any instructions or requirements of such third party to collect their portion of the Prize.
The Prize Winners will receive instructions for the delivery of their prize via email where their information will be taken for shipping and fulfillment purposes.
Sponsor expressly reserves the right to disqualify any participation that it believes in good faith are generated by an automated means or scripts or that violate any of these Official Rules or Sponsor’s terms of service. Participation generated by script, macro or other automated means are void.
Decisions of the Sponsor are final and binding with respect to all matters related to the Contest. In no event shall the Sponsor be obligated to award any Prizes other than the Prize specified in these Official Rules. The Sponsor does not guarantee that the Prize can be made available to any Winner. The Prize is not assignable and not transferable and no substitutions are permitted. In addition, if the Prize is unable to be fulfilled to the Winner due to any applicable law, rule or regulation, or if the Winner cannot claim the Prize for any reason, then Sponsor reserves the right to not award the Prize at all. The Winner shall be responsible and liable for all federal, state and local taxes on the value of the Prize.
