— Pokémon League meets at 2 p.m. today and Oct. 19. Join the Pokémon Trading Card Game League that meets at 2 p.m. on the first and third Saturdays of each month. The Pokémon League provides a nearby place for Pokémon enthusiasts to get together with other fans of both the Pokémon Trading Card Game and the Pokémon video games, and have some fun. Those who attend can use their own cards and Pokémon DS games, to play, trade, and there are even opportunities to earn cool prizes. Players who don’t know all the rules of the game can learn game basics and, in no time, perfect a strategy. Joining a league is the best way to hone skills to compete in Pokémon tournaments from Battle Roads all the way up to the World Championships.
