DALLAS-Do you like card games? Well this week's Subculture is taking us into the world of Pokemon. So get your Pikachus ready, it's gonna be a battle.

Pokemon players came together in Dallas to play, trade and compete for bragging rights and the chance to be called Pokemon champion.

"Pokemon is one of those games that connects all age ranges people from all cultures all walks of life. It's very fun to see families that play so we`ll have parents and little kids," said  Christine Noah, a local Pokemon league organizer.

"I would say Pokemon is my happy place because physically I've had a lot of stuff that`s gone wrong lately but Pokemon stayed the same and that meant a lot to me," said Jenny Banda.

So what's the best thing about Pokemon? Anyone can play and local leagues can be found throughout the United States.

"A Pokemon league is your local game store or group that gets together, typically about once a week, players trade, they play they practice, they get new ideas for decks or just hang out and talk to each other," said Noah.
