— Pokemon League will be from 2 to 4:45 p.m. Jan. 18 and 25. Join the Pokémon Trading Card Game League. The Pokémon League provides a nearby place for fans to get together with other fans of both the Pokémon Trading Card Game and the Pokémon video games, and have some fun. Using each person’s own cards and Pokémon DS games, they can play, trade, and even earn cool prizes. The best part is that those who attend can do all this with other Pokémon players who love collecting and playing just as much as they do. No registration is required. The program will meet upstairs in the Children’s Program Rooms Players should check at the Children’s Desk to find out the location of each month’s meeting, as it will change.
Even if you don’t know all the rules of the game, at a league you can learn game basics and, in no time, perfect a strategy. Joining a league is the best way to hone your skills to compete in Pokémon tournaments from Battle Roads all the way up to the World Championships.
