Want to meet other Pokémon fans and earn cool rewards while having lots of fun? Well, you’re in luck, because The Pokémon Company is about to launch a weekly fan event where you can do all that.
Called Pokémon Club, this new program is tailored for new and younger Pokémon fans, giving them an awesome way to meet fellow fans in their community. It will take place exclusively on Saturdays, starting on November 23rd, at local game stores where other Play! Pokémon events are already held.
Pokémon Sword and Shield for Nintendo Switch are set to be released on November 15th, so having the games out a week before the launch of Pokémon Club gives fans a lot to talk about at their first fan meet-up.
Pokémon Club events will offer all kinds of Pokémon activities, so there will be something for video game players, trading card game (TCG) collectors, and even for casual fans to enjoy. However, Pokémon Club events will not feature any kind of formal competitions, allowing everyone to just show up and have a great time without any pressure.
As mentioned above, Pokémon Club attendees can earn cool rewards for coming to events every week. These rewards include Pokémon TCG promo cards, stickers, and more. And as seen in the tweet below, trainers will also get a Trainer Card to track when they’ve participated at a Pokémon Club.
Calling all younger Trainers—it’s time to start your Pokémon journey with Pokémon Club!
☑️ Meet other Trainers
☑️ Earn cool rewards
☑️ Have lots of Pokémon fun
