Do you want to be the very best, like no one ever was?

Description

An alternate-reality Pokemon league that takes place at PAX. Challengers wander the con as usual, but if they discover a Gym Leader they lock eyes and the leader challenge begins!

To participate, all you need is a DS and a copy of Pokemon Black or White with a general theme. Our team rules are similar to many other tournaments, but unlike those we have a very strong casual-friendly atmosphere. We love challengers that use their favorite Pokemon rather than the Uber-strong types.

History

The event started at Prime 2010 by thespiffyneostar. It was a success with 13 leaders taking dozens of challengers on. The league continued to PAX East 2011, run by Heleor, and including 16 total leaders. The league continued at Prime 2011 with 20 leaders and is going to be happening at East 2012 as well.

Volunteer Opportunities

Gym Leaders are typically recruited months in advance of the convention, and go through a strong application process. There is lots of coordination involved, and if you're interested, follow our forums!

Attending

No sign-up is necessary! Simply have your DS and a copy of Pokemon Black or White, and look out for any leaders during your normal PAX experience. There will be meet-ups announced closer to the convention where you would be able to find any leaders you may have missed.
