Pokemon GO Club Expands to Other Pokemon Games

Austin Reinhart

The MCC Pokemon Go Club  invites students interested in playing Pokemon to attend their club meetings in College Center Room 173 on Tuesdays from 2 – 4 p.m. 

Andrew Pollara, president of the Pokemon Go Club, said the club, formed last semester, is looking for new members and welcomes anyone who shares an interest in the game. 

Pollara said if students are interested in the game but don’t know where to begin, attending a meeting can be a great way to learn the basics, with old members being more than happy to teach new players the ropes. 

He said the club welcomes players of any and all Pokemon games new and old, so you can join and play even if you only have the game on your phone. 

Pollara said several events are also in the works within the club, including tournament-style competition matches, casual one-on-one matches between members, and  possibly a card tournament. 

He said in addition to  gameplay, the club may begin selling shirts, and or hoodies, to raise money for activities within the club. 

Closer to the end of the semester is when the club will be holding its official tournament where students have a chance to take on the current defending champion for the title. These tournaments are not limited to club members;  anyone is welcome to play, said Pollara.  

 He said there are hopes within the club to also expand and link up with fans of the games from other colleges, so this could be a great way to meet people outside of MCC.
