Pokémon Club / Pokémon Klub

Come and have a good time every Monday at Rampen.

What is a Pokémon League? It’s a place where fans of the Pokémon Trading Card Game have an opportunity to meet up and have fun! It’s possible to borrow a deck and learn how to play.

Besides learning the game, you have the opportunity to participate in fun tournaments. The best part of it all is, that you get to do all of it with other Pokémon players, who love to collect and play just as much as you do.

Follow us on Facebook ( and contact, if you have any questions.

Philosophy, wonder and big questions for children and adolescents aged 13-16 years:
