All of the Pokéfans out there probably know that the Pokémon World Championships take place this weekend in San Francisco. Obviously, not everyone can attend. Nintendo has teamed up with GameStop for a small competition at select stores nationwide. The first 50 people at each event this Saturday, August 20 from 12pm to 3pm (local time) will receive a set of Pokémon Sun and Moon art cards, while supplies last. While you’re there you’ll be able to compete against other Pokémon fans with Omega Rugby or Alpha Sapphire. Sounds like a fun time!


If you can’t make the 2016 Pokémon World Championships in San Francisco on the weekend of August 19th, stop by select GameStop stores to compete against other Pokémon fans in Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. The first 50 people at each event on Saturday, August 20th from 12:00pm – 3:00pm (local time) will receive a set of Pokémon Sun& Pokémon Moon art cards while supplies last.
