Pokémon Meet-Ups Happening Across Canada on September 29th

In addition to the previously-mentioned Pokémon family events, Nintendo of Canada will also be holding a series of Pokémon meet-ups across the nation on Saturday, September 29th from 12pm to 4pm local time.

There, you will be able to “train, battle, and share your experiences with other Pokémon fans” when you bring your system and Pokémon games– a perfect time to get in some last-minute trades in Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version to import before the release of their sequels! Plus, if you’re packing a Nintendo 3DS, it will no doubt be a good opportunity to score some StreetPasses.

There will also be a Nintendo ambassador wearing an easy-to-spot Pokémon t-shirt onsite with some cool Pokémon giveaways… while supplies last, at least, so be sure to get there on-time.

Following is a list of the locations for the meet-ups:
