    Reminder to everyone, this is the last week to submit your application to be a gym leader! So if you've been waiting until the last minute, THIS IS IT. THIS IS THE LAST MINUTE. No late applications accepted!

    Applications close at the end of September, and we'll be announcing who's in a bit after that.

    That guy with the ridiculously long scarf at PAX. Say Hi!

    My boyfriend is trying to get into the community and is applying to be a gym leader. Hope he gets accepted :D

    And at the last second I manage to submit my application! Though I'm a bit confused. When did September get an extra day?

    We stole one from October. Halloween is now on November 1st.

  • Lugh LamfhadaLugh Lamfhada Registered User
    Oh. Well then, that makes sense. I just hope February doesn't start getting jealous and grab a day for itself. That way lies a complete reshuffling of the calendar and that will just get confusing.

    Something's up with my notifications because it's not doing its job. Grumpyface.

    On another note, good luck to all the applicants and their teams! This year will be shiny.

    The amazing... ness? that is my application took two weeks to write. No, not really. I just was unaware of what the timetable was when my girlfriend randomly told me one day, "Hey you like pokemon right?" (as I'm playing SoulSilver) "You should sign up to be a leader in the PPL!"

  • Lugh LamfhadaLugh Lamfhada Registered User
    Well being fair the reason I didn't turn in an application earlier was I didn't check the boards until the middle of the month. Then came the debating of whether or not I should apply. Followed by the various team possibilities(Rejected team themes included ape trainer, cowboy, mad scientist, and conspiracy theorist). And finally ending with the writing up of the character.

    It took a little while.

    Hey there Pokeguys! I participated in the League this year; got a lot more pity-badges than win-badges, but I still had a lot of fun. I'm not planning on entering as a leader or anything since I won't be attending East, but I did have a question.
    Whoever N was at Prime asked me for a picture to prove my love of my Pokemon. I drew one up and gave it to him but he kept it! Which was totally cool, but he never sent me a picture of it. Anyone heard from him since?

    Wow....I was going to post this weeks ago but the forum ate it, yet the draft's still here. That's pretty crazy.

  • HeleorHeleor SeattleRegistered User regular
    @Scunosi - I asked him about it, and he said it completely slipped his mind. He was looking for it to get a pic since he mentioned it was one of his favorites!

    To everyone who applied to be a leader: Decisions are hard with the amount of applications we got. Propriety, Prof. Pine and I are all discussing to make sure we all agree, so it may be a bit longer before people are accepted.

  • lagomorphiclagomorphic Registered User regular
    @Scunosi Hey! this is N! I am an absolute terrible person for not getting that to you T.T I am so sorry! I have been ransacking my room, and it has yet to turn up. >.< I know I have laid hands on it recently, and that I put it somewhere safe, where I wouldn't lose it (well....too safe, I guess) I think it got shuffled around in my last room cleanup, but I will hunt that adorable art down, and I will get you a picture! SO N SWEARS!

  • ProprietyPropriety Registered User regular
    N, if you don't get that to him, you're going to have to take him on a romantic ferris wheel ride. :B

    We should have decisions soon! Sorry it's taking so long. SO MANY GOOD APPLICATIONS. T_T I wish we could just make everyone a leader! D: But then we'd have like a million gym leaders.

    I'm glad you still had fun! We're trying to balance things a bit better going forward, so that there will be easier leaders and harder leaders, so everyone has a chance to actually win badges. Sorry to hear you won't be at East, we've got lots of fun cooked up! But I'm sure PPL will still be going strong at Prime 2012... :D

  • lagomorphiclagomorphic Registered User regular
    I'm not going to East, but next prime I should be there to make you work for badges, WITHOUT batting.

    Note: Okay. Seriously. I have turned my room upside and back looking for this. I know I put it somewhere safe because I REALLY like it. But I cannot seem to locate that someplace. I am not above a romantic Ferris wheel ride, though you may have to talk to my girlfriend about that.

    I WILL find it. I WILL send you your picture of it. and I WILL place it in it's rightful place on my artz wall (it isn't there yet, because I am lazy....)

    Failing that, Well. You shall have your pretty picture! be it yours, or mine (Note: art by N may or may not be of substandard quality aesthetically, but be assured it is made with love and friendship)

  • ScunosiScunosi WashingtonRegistered User regular
    Hehe, well glad to hear the game is afoot at least. Though you must have quite the room if you still haven't found it. Probably in a toy chest somewhere or something eh.

  • thespiffyneostarthespiffyneostar Registered User regular
    The game will always be afoot. come rain or shine. We're like the US Postal Service. Except we deliver Pokemon Battles to PAX.

  • cocowoushicocowoushi Registered User regular
    Can't wait to see all the new leaders and challengers we get this year!

    This got me thinking as to how I've had Pokemon for most of my conscious life, even before I knew how to read. Even though I complain every time a new one comes out (except for B/W, I was amped for those) because they would somehow sully the awesomeness of the original two generations, I would be left with an empty hole in my heart if the franchise came to an end. Anyone else with me?

    No! I have a tiny room! And I am near positive I tucked it somewhere in my desk! #RAGE
    This is killing me T.T

    Looks like you'll be taking that ferris wheel ride after all.

    Out of curiosity how tall are the ceilings in the convention hall at Prime?

    Um. Can't say I was really looking up too much. The show floor is two floors tall and filled with signs and balloons. The halls off to the sides are...15-20 feet tall? There was a good deal of room. Someone correct me if my memories are wrong, though.

    You vant to cross, maybe?

    We have just sent out the decisions for the leaders. This was the hardest year yet, since we had so many more applications than spots... :(

    I hope those of you who were turned away still enjoy challenging the league and earning the wonderful prizes that leaders are not eligible for! ;-)

  • Lugh LamfhadaLugh Lamfhada Registered User
    Aww... I didn't make it. *sigh*

    Oh, well. I suppose I'll just have to settle for getting as many badges as I can.

    I recall a friend of mine who went with me to PAX Prime this year saying in a year past he'd gone not as a Leader, but as a regular Trainer like you'd encounter on the Routes. He went as a Bug Boy, costume and all. Not sure if he was League-sanctioned, but he seemed to know a lot of you guys at PAX at least. So if someone doesn't get in as a leader maybe they can still do that just for funsies!
    By the way, you may have seen my friend this year, he was the Space Sphere Day 1 and P-Body the next two days, but he always had his Space Sphere hat.

  • DanUNGDanUNG Registered User regular
    I thought about applying as the Heart Leader, with nothing but Luvdisc. Then I realized how terrible I am at ideas.

    I wonder if anyone tried submitting Red's "official" team as a Gym Leader idea? That would certainly be interesting.

    Oh man, I really want to be challenged by a Bug Boy. That would be so hilarious and wonderful.

    Is your friend going to East? I want to see Space Sphere! I will give him a hug and we will shout "SPAAAAAAACE" and it will be glorious.

    No, no one did! They totally should have.

    Though last PAX East a friend of mine challenged the league with Ash's team from the series, which was great fun!

    Pretty sure he's not going to East, what with it being in....East. He lives in Seattle so Prime wasn't exactly a long trip, but assuming East is during the college school year like Prime was (wryyyyy) it's highly doubtful any of us will be attending. I'd be more likely to attend Dragoncon before East, actually. Nothing personal, it's just I can do Prime here and then 'Con it up with my old Southern friends while hitting up all the [as] panels! :D

    Oh man, that would be really awesome. Last year we had a Cameron the Photographer who'd take random pictures of people (Just when you least expect it!) which was cool, I hope he does that again this year. A Pokemon Rental service would be awesome and hilarious.

    1) Oh man I hope TJ comes back! He's one cool dude.

    2) Cameron the Photographer was so hilarious, it was a shame not everyone understood what he was doing.

    3) Because this is PAX we're talking about, I'd be willing to bet you'd get a 100% return rate for those lvl 50 rental 'mons. Just keep adding to the awesomeness of PAX!
