Some of the Midwest's top Pokemon players met up to do battle Sunday during the Pokemon Trading Card Game City Championships at the Sciences and Arts Academy in Des Plaines.
At stake was a chance to earn points needed to qualify for the 2014 Pokemon World Championships next summer in Washington, D.C., where more than $100,000 in scholarship money will be on the line.
This weekend's event in Des Plaines drew participants from as far away as St. Louis and other parts of the Midwest, who competed in three age divisions.
The game, created in Japan, has players using Pokemon cards featuring characters with individual strengths and weaknesses "battling" their opponents' cards, in an attempt to knock them out.
