Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Prepare for trouble, and make it double! The second PAX Prime Pokemon League is coming soon, and soon your childhood dreams of fighting Gym Leaders, earning badges, and defeating the dastardly Team Rocket will be realized.

The PAX Pokemon League is an alternate-reality game that is played during all of PAX and is played with your own copy of Pokemon Black or White. Full rules are posted on our website.

    Professor Pine here!

    Just so you all know, We're taking a good long look at applications this week! There are a lot of good applications, but we still want more! To have a good shot at being a leader (if that's what you want to do) Go sign up Post-haste! The sooner you apply, the more likely you are to get accepted.

    That being said: if you don't apply soon, don't take it like you'll never be accepted. The nature of the beast is that people drop from the league for many reasons, so we're always in search of good leaders.

    All else fails, show us what you've got and be crowned champion of the Pax Pookemon Legue as a challenger!

    We will be accepting leaders three days after badges go on sale.

    Please do not be alarmed if you don't hear back on your application until then.

    A little confused on some questions on the application, but I'll do my best to answer them!

    If not, then maybe as a grunt or a Veteran or whatever. I may have an idea for the Buttoneering to coinside with this.

    The application process allows us all to privately answer any questions you have and talk back and forth on the actual application. We'd be glad to have you. :)

    Damn, I am overly excited for this.

    Although, discovering that the battles are done with Pokemon above level 50 scaled down to that level makes the amount of time I've spent grinding my Pokemon up to level 80 look a bit silly... <img class=" title=":lol:" class="bbcode_smiley" />

    I'm just trying to get my Black kids to 50. The SoulSilver kids I want to transfer are close to 65, so I want all of them to be even. ...I have some grinding to do.

    I was holding out on picking up White, but I think this is going to be the straw that breaks the Camerupt's back.

    Got some leveling and grinding to do! Well, starting tomorrow when I pick up my copy at the midnight launch of Portal 2.

    Soneone at the original League (from last year) actually did rather well in a national TCG Competition. I'm pretty sure he'll be back this year.

    Stay tuned, and don't let this thread die. ;)

    I don't have any connection with the League (other than that badge I got that one time), but I figured I'd show my support.

    I got really into it, just wish I had more time to improve my skills with it.

    much like many things.

    This next week for example, when I'm not pal'ing around with Disney mascots, I'm going to be doing some serious training.

    And in the meantime...

    While you're waiting, I hope you're getting your Pokemon team ready for the battle of a lifetime! :D

    *sigh*

    My team is only in its early 30s. And then once I get them up to 50 I'm going to have to farm those stupid feathers off of that stupid bridge. My pony, she is so fragile - you poke her and she faints. But man, does she pack a punch.

    Oh well, it shall be worth it. And of course huge thanks to all involved for setting this up again - I'm looking forward to seeing the gym leaders! I think I've got my elemental types covered, but there's always room adjustment.

    I have been play Pokemon for years now, but always in a collector fashion. Gotta collect them all, no matter their ability, stats or moves. I have been wanting to jump into the more competitive play for sometime, partly to participate in the PAX league. Any advice or can anyone point me in a good direction on learning all that goes into training? Much appreciated.

    I hesitate to post this, but Smogon.com has been the place I would go for info. The only reason I hesitate is because those people take their Pokemons as serious business and some of it may not make sense to you. Don't be worried though, the Pax Pokemon league is aimed at allowing people such as yourself the opportunity to win some badges (not all of the Gym Leaders are aimed at competitive play).

    I would also suggest checking out the actual PPL forums. They've got a board there dedicated to getting your team up to snuff. I don't know as much about Black/White as I did with the previous games, but if you've got any questions feel free to ask any through a PM or here and I'll do my best to help.

    i.e. Me. I don't know what the frickity-frack the reasons behind their IVs, EVs, Nature/Mood, etc etc etc; but all of us can do the best to our ability to answer questions you may have--just like Gameshark said.

    There's lots of exciting stuff going on behind the scenes as we speak -- badges are being finalized, teams completed, and costumes designed. Can't wait until we can release some of the details to everyone else!

    Whoa, been a while since I've been on these forums.

    Just checking in and seeing if things are picking up or not. I'm not heading to Prime, but I'm still eager to see what's going on and the like. Personally, I'm waiting for the next East competition...already have seven teams ready to be used at a moment's notice (I've been a busy little bee)

    I've also been chatting with a few people who are going to act as my surrogates...so you all might be facing a few of my teams when Prime comes along! I'm looking forward to seeing how they fare. :twisted:

    Poetic, you are so hardcore. I haven't even finished White yet - in fact, I haven't played it since East!

    Everyone make sure lots of pictures of the PPL are taken - I'm counting on you!
