    Good. Hypno and I look forward to destroying you.


    Intelligence v. Intelligence? I might wander over to see this one XD

    Or, given the likelihood of me finding anything-ask about the results.

    My victory last year was by chance, really. I was being destroyed by Propriety's Pokemon, and my team of 6 dwindled to 1 while his team of 4 had gone down to 3.

    And then, my Hypno came out. And with Hypnosis and a lot of luck, we came out on top. It was an epic and memorable match, and it might have made me a little cocky...

    Hypno and I have been hard at work, though. We know we can't rely on luck or the same tactics, so we came up with some new ones. Brace yourself, Propriety.

    I became your Rival the minute you turned me down in that Portal 2 line. Your team will fall.

    You guys need to fear the day I make a Stunfisk team. And then Rainbow and I will unite our armies and it will be awesome.

    You'll be unstoppable as long as you got the heart.

    I gotta say you guys, the raw enthusiasm that the PPL exudes makes me wish I understood the game better (or, more precisely, cared to; the metagame beyond G/S/D is too much for me). It looks like a lot of fun :)

    Aww, shucks, thanks! I'm trying my best to get people in the Pokemon League spirit! But don't be scared off, you don't have to understand the metagame at all to challenge leaders! All you need is a copy of Black or White and a team of your favorite pokemon, and you can give it a try! We've got a lot of leaders who are training up teams that are focused on being fun, instead of being crazy strong, so you've got a good chance of earning yourself a few badges!

    The very first year PPL was around, my friend used a team of Electric types she literally threw together the day of. And this was before the game bumped up levels to 50. She still managed a good number of badges.

    It's a great experience! We want everyone to have fun and not stress about metagame. It's the memories from the battles and interaction with fellow pokefans that make it the experience it is.

    You could say it's the heart of our mission!

    (PS: Said friend went on to become a Normal type gym leader the next year and everyone came to fear the Skitty known as Sephiroth.)

    Don't mind me if I start to jot down some notes during the battles.

    I don't intend to do anything artistic or anything. :whistle:

    Yes!! Teh heart. We has it. I may just use my shuckle team again - there's no way I can get a real team together in time. @Propriety, I don't know how you balance this and school, I honestly don't. (Last time I checked you were in school, yes? Don't want to be wrong... or worse, a creeper)
    I will be bringing a humanized version of GLaDOS to the table this year! Not sure if I should do Misty again. I grew out my hair and don't want to buy a wig (already got one for GLaDOS), so.... I dunno. I won't be attending Sunday, either. But Thursday/Friday/Saturday will be hit up to the max! And, as usual, I will be most likely spending the biggest chunk of my time with you all. So ready for this to happen!

  • cocowoushicocowoushi Registered User regular
    Looking forward to seeing you again! And gijinka GlaDOS? Awesome. GlaDOS using shuckles? Even more awesome.

  • Tichinde925Tichinde925 Registered User regular
    Is there any point in leveling past 50?

    IR battles force level 50.

    Only to get the moves you want.

    Not only do I not finish my teams on time, I now have other people breeding my team for me. I'm pretty awful at this.

    There'd better be a good reason for this.

    They announced a new leader on the PPL Website. Seems pretty legit.

    Isn't that informative!? Hooray!!

    Would it be ok if Trainers were to ask Gym Leaders (Not the elite 4 peeps or the champ) for a good ol fashion 3v3? I know it's a lot of fun, but theres so much to do at PAX I wouldn't want to spend all my time playing the mons.

    You can always ask! As Morganstern mentions, gym leaders set the rules for their gym... some might already be doing 3v3, or something EVEN CRAZIER! You never know!

    GLaDOS-tan?!?!? If I glomp you, will I get sprayed with nuro-toxin? As for Misty, if your hair grew out, couldn't you cosplay her from Gen 2? Thought now that I think about it, I'm not sure a swimsuit is something you'd want to wear at PAX.

    sounds pretty cool, I almost decided to do a humanized Fact Sphere, but decided to do Miror B instead because he's a cool bro.

    I'm actually trying to get my friends to do that because I'm terrible XD
    I'm making a brand new team from scratch, and I'm working on something else too at the same time so I can't spend too long trying to hatch a thousand eggs for the right one.
    So I'm trying to at least get my friends to breed me pokemon. So far, I'm hatching sneasal... now I just gotta work on the other 5 when I'm done

    I have evidence to the contrary, specifically the cleanliness of the floors at PAX. Because... because I heard you wiped the floor with people. A lot of people. Which would make the floors clean.

    TERRIFYING.

    My team's just about done. I just need to trade-evolve one of my Pokes and test him out before I should be ready. Got my bases covered this year, I hope. No Spore-Sub Breloom to carry me this time.

    I'd go so far as to say that he may be too legit. In fact, he's so legit that if he was ever given the option of quitting, I do not believe he would accept.

    I meant in terms of this thing called a "heart." Pokemon are used for battling, what is this "friendship" you all speak of? This lady is doing it wrong I tell you.
