    I tried to talk my boyfriend into signing up for this, but he wouldn't do it. I think he'll need some coaxing for next year. I think he'd have a lot of fun.

    I can be a challenger and Is there a list of Pokemon that are "illegal"?

    And how much of a commitment is the PPT? Can I just see leaders randomly then battle or do we have meeting spot, if so do I have to go to every meeting etc.

    Updated rules will be put up once they've been sorted out, but as a general rule of thumb, most Legendaries are a no no.

    Deoxys would be the one thing that would be out just by looking at it, outside of that, looks like a legal team.

    Not sure if the final rule set, but this is what was used for East. Looks like Deoxys was legal for it, which means someone needs to look at the rules more often 8P

    Which reminds me, why is the link to anything not in the first post....

    yeah, these were the final rules for PAX EAST.
    We aren't likely to change them MUCH from these rules, but the are subject to change.

    I think your team is quite well rounded, but I would consider dropping Deoxys for a different psychic type in case Deoxys is added to our ban list. If not dropping completely, planning for a backup :)

    Yeah. I'm working on it. I'll probably give it a go just to get him to do it. Which means I gotta get working on my team. ^_^

    I'm thinking of doing this, but I'm hesitating because it's Pokemon Black/White...

    I'm a huge fan of the original 150, but I never played any of the games past Ruby/Sapphire because I just couldn't get interested in the new Pokemon. That's the same thing that's holding me back from getting Black/White. How much time would I have to invest in the game before coming across some of the original 150 Pokemon? And generally what level Pokemon do people bring to the PAX Pokemon League?

    In my honest opinion (that is not in any way sponsored by nintendo, I promise) is that Black and White are great re-introductions to Pokemon. The game is structured that you don't encounter any old pokemon until after you beat the Elite four, but then you find them almost everywhere. Beating the E4 usually takes about 30 hours of game play (by my guess) and roughly level 45 pokemon.

    Also the cool thing about challenging the league is we use the IR Flat battle setting. This means that any pokemon under level 50, get scaled up to level 50, and any pokemon above level 50 get scaled down to level 50. The only advantage to leveling above 50 is to learn new moves, evolutions, or more time aquiring EVs.

    If you ever get stuck, just hack yourself in a Zoroark. (If you don't know what Pokemon that is, look at my avatar.) Zoroark fixes all problems. Zoroark will help you out. Zoroark will make you feel sleepy. Very very sleepy. Zoroark will tell you to give him all of your money. Zoroark will get it. Zoroark will run away.
