FANS of the Pokémon card game can attend a ‘swap shop’ event in East Renfrewshire later this month.

The collectible card game is based on Nintendo’s Pokémon franchise of video games and has become a favourite with enthusiasts around the world.

Players assume the role of a Pokémon trainer and use their cards to try to outmanoeuvre their opponents.

The swap shop event will take place at the Waterstones store within The Avenue shopping centre, in Newton Mearns, on Friday, April 19, from noon until 1.30pm.

A spokesperson for the organisers said: “Bring your doublers, treblers or unloved Pokémon cards and trade with fellow Pokémon trainers and masters.”

For more details, call 0141 616 3933.
