Assuming it's the new black and white rules I can brush those up, but if there's a rotation, I don't know if I can even make up a deck
And to play do you have to join the leauge or can I just pop along every now and again? (Which will be as often as I can though!) I can join too, so long as i'm not expected to make every meeting.
Popzmaster has the final say on this (and feel free to tell me to butt out since I don't live in Dublin
) Leagues are usually just come and play, no pressure to come every week, when you can is fine. Of course the more you come, the more games you play and the more stamps you can earn to get prizes
I have no idea on the house rules. I can confirm there will be an official TPCi TCG "rotating out" of the HGSS cards, but I think that happens after Worlds, so September time? Unless you want to partake in current tournaments, don't worry about it. The new rotation will have cards from BW onwards.
The BW sets have a few new things (PokePowers/Pokebodies are now called Abilities, the return of EX Pokemon), the main thing is that the starting player can now play Trainer [item], Trainer [Supporter], and Trainer [Stadium] cards on the first turn.
Hope that helps
