This summer, Barnes and Noble Bookstores all across the country have been hosting free seminars on Pop Culture on topics ranging from Star Wars to Harry Potter.  On a bright Saturday afternoon, Barnes and Noble hosted a pop culture seminar on the Pokémon Trading Card Game.

I have to admit that while I have been familiar with the Pokémon TCG since it was first released I had no idea how to actually play the game.  I thought this event was a great opportunity to learn how to play and interact with other local Pokémon Trainers.

How did the event go?  Watch the video and find out.

The year of Pokemon’s 20th Anniversary is hardly winding down and to celebrate the start of the month of August, The Pokémon Company has teamed up with GameStop in the US to distribute the Mythical Pokemon Arceus starting today.

This is a very big deal as Arceus is one of the most powerful Pokémon in existance, in fact it’s so powerful it is actually banned for use at official competitive events.

To get yourself an Arceus, you’ll need to visit your local GameStop store to get a unique download code for the Pokémon free of charge. You can then redeem the code on your Generation 6 game, provided your 3DS system is connected to the Internet and up to date before redeeming your code.  This event will continue until August 24th, but any codes obtained through the promotion will work until November 30th, 2016.

Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire are all out now for the Nintendo 3DS Platform.
