The holiday season is well upon us, and for Pokemon fans, that can mean only one thing: the City Championships are coming soon. Throughout the last week of November, all of December, and the first week of January, Pokemon trainers throughout North America will be duking it out to see who's the greatest in their city.
All participants will get a special foil version of Poliwag from Unleashed, and the winner will get a medal and 18 booster packs. 2nd-4th place finishers will receive booster packs as well.
In addition to all those packs and promos, many cool door prizes are to be had: baseball caps with the Play! Pokemon logo, a very cool playmat featuring Ho-oh and Lugia, and inflatable Pokeballs (yes!), as well as pencils and stickers for the kids. Pictures of all this cool schwag may be found at Pokebeach.
As usual, check Pokemon.com for times and locations.
