    This looks very interesting, especially since I got my copy of Pokemon Black 2 last week :D. Very curious to see if I can spot any gym leaders this year.

    Also a quick question...Anybody got an Iceberg key by any chance? Apparently I need it to catch an Rejoice so that i can use other two Regi pokemon to capture the boss one. I don't have any friends that play Pokemon White 2 so if anybody else does...well...anybody? XD

    The PPL has their own forums that tend to have many people that can talk about trading and whatnot. You're probably more likely to get a response that way.

    Really? Is there a link where I can check it out?

    BY JOVE, A VISITOR! WHOOPS. Sorry! I have been so busy with my research and organizing the Pokemon League I have neglected this thread!

    Yes! You should definitely (if you haven't already) hope over to http://paxpokemonleague.net/forum/ and ask there! Someone will almost certainly be able to help you out.

    I would do so personally (I have White 2) but I... actually haven't gotten to the Regis yet. D: ORGANIZING A POKEMON LEAGUE IS A LOT OF WORK OK

    *Shame*

    I got Black 2 for Xmas. I am hoping that I get into it enough that I get a team prepared. Two years ago I tried to battle and I was just not ready. I didn't participate last year.

    I can be pretty lousy with puns, Pokemon tends to make them even worse...

    With a lot of the leaders I can see needing a fairly cool character to take advantage of weaknesses, it's going to be a busy month and a half with training a team and migrating them to black or black 2...

    My team is ready except for one tiny detail: They are still low in level. I know that doesn't fully matter with how battles are done in Unova, but still...

    Houndoom, Marowak, Raticate, Crobat, Machamp, Alakazam.
    I don't mind telling you my team. But tell you their attacks? Oh no no no. You'll see those up close and personal.

    Now, I just have to figure out what I should have them holding. Oh, 4 items I know already. If I could double, I so would. But since the rules say I can't. And I do play by the rules. I might be bad, but I'm no cheat.

    Yep! Flat battles will level your team up or down to 50, so level doesn't matter directly. It just impacts what moves your pokemon can learn!

    Also, that looks like a pretty great team! I love when people use pokemon I rarely see on a team, like Marowak!

    ALSO ALSO another gym leader has been revealed! Beware the silent ninja tactics of Volaro, the Elusive Rose! http://www.paxpokemonleague.net

    That reminds me I remember you guys having a similar setup with trainer cards last year. I didn't get any card from both gym leaders I fought. Just wondering if the cards will be important for a trainer to have.

    If you're looking to do the Legendary bird challenge, then the cards are pretty important! But if you're just in it for the badges, then its no big deal. So long as you tell the first gym leader you challenge that they're your first, I'm sure we can toss a card your way!

    I am SUPER sorry about that (and if you find me at PAX this year, let me know, and I'll make sure you get one of last year's cards! At least it can serve as a souvenir). I am going to do my best to remind all the gym leaders that they should ask people if they have a card and give them one if they don't have one! And I'm going to be going around and handing out cards myself!

    The cards are not vital to participate in the PPL! You can definitely participate without one. But, in addition to being a cool souvenir, the cards serve two purposes:

    -As Volaro mentions, if you want to help find the Legendary birds and win cool extra prizes, you're going to need a card! This year we've got some really awesome prizes, so I highly encourage participating! Also the puzzle is pretty fun, I think.
    -The cards also list gym leaders who are around your skill level! So if you feel like the leaders you're battling are way too tough, or way too easy, you can focus on finding and battling people listed on your card.

    ----

    ALSO ALSO a new leader has been posted. She's got serious game... meet Catya, the Island Settler! http://www.paxpokemonleague.net (Thanks, Punzie. XD Links are weird here!)

    DEFINITELY! It usually only takes me a week or two of nightly playing to get my team together, though I don't IV train or any of that fancy stuff. Picking the moves you want is usually the hard part.

    No IV training? That kind of relieves me because I don't really want to do all that work. Maybe EV, but not IV.

    While grinding away last night, I was toying with the idea of putting together a trainer outfit, but that is just me dreaming big. Haha.

    I keep thinking I'd like one, or at least a hat...but never get around to commissioning one out of my cosplaying sister.

    Also I'm guessing the new gym leader will have to brace themselves for the influx of 'will trade sudowoodo for mareep' jokes.

    A ghost type leader? Interesting, though I've been known to put up a spirited fight, and with the team I've decided on...I'm guessing it'd be a dark day in Boston before I'd fall to the likes of one.

    I dunno, depends on if the key to beating him is to wait 6 months and find him at prime...(insert slowpoke meme here)...I'll try to cut down on the puns, after all, it looks to be pretty easy to bug both of the new leaders.

    Worst part of making a thread full of puns, is that I'll likely have to keep it up when challenging leaders.

    Hey, I've been thinking of pulling the trigger on a Fire Emblem 3DS and I had Pokemon black a while ago and didnt like it since the city really drove me nuts(couldnt see, endless talking) would White be any better? Also can I get White 2/Black 2 to challenge the leaders?

    Either black/white or black 2/white2 could be used for the challenge as per the rules on the website. As for white/white2 being better, the key difference would be in the version specific city, and where its set in the same region, probably not much better for the city issues. This is assuming you mean the cities in general and not the black city.

    Castelia probably, there isn't as much to really do there on your way through from what I recall in 2, aside from run around the sewers and find the park to catch wild Eevee.

    Rules page: basic rules, 9.
    the rules for the type of match will set all pokemon to 50, if you're below 50, they'll level up to that for the match, if you're above, it'll level down.

    Yes those pokemon are allowed as per the rules: http://paxpokemonleague.net/rules/
    Keldeo is not allowed (though you didn't name it, it is part of that group).

    Also, I hate Wooper and its evolution...and any other water/ground pokemon for that matter. I don't have a pun for this, I considered something about a can of woop-ass, or something, but even I have standards...
