Pokemon players, here's your chance to show your skill. A Pokemon Trading Card Game Trainer Showdown, from 10:30 a.m. tomorrow at Jelly's Comics and Books in Market City Shopping Center, is open to players ages 6 to 12.
Two tournament players will be selected to participate in an exhibition match with trainers from Japan at the Hawaii Tropical Mega-Battle Aug. 24 to 27 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. The Mega-Battle will pit 36 master trainers selected at showdowns completed this summer in Japan and in nine U.S. cities.
But you have to join in the Trainer Showdown to have a chance at winning the Mega-Battle slot.
The Showdown entry fee is $15. Players must bring their own pack of 60 English-language Pokemon cards, and all participants will receive a prize.
The Jelly's phone number is 735-7676, but you have to go down in person to register for the tournament. While registration will probably be open right up to start time, if the numbers get too huge, participation will have to be limited.
There is no charge to watch the tournament.
