    You might want to head over and check out the latest leader announcement: Drake and Lily, the Poke-Couple.

    Oh, and avoid the East Wing if you can. The floors are still a bit slick. I know Surf is a popular move but some days I don't know why I bother to put the mop away.

    Let's see who the latest Gym Leader is... WHAT? HER?

    Her badge sort of looks like Doctor Whooves' cutie mark with a bowtie on it. Cute.

    Isn't it just? Don't let down your guard, though, or she'll charm her way to victory. :B

    Newest Gym Leader announced is a Wooper fanatic named Melanie. Wait... isn't Melanie also the name of Shuckle Girl?

    Shuckle Girl a.k.a Rainbowtunnel a.k.a Rachel! I assume she'll be at PAX again, since she's still in Boston.... I don't know! I'll have to find out.

    Yellow fever? I'm more worried about the tentacool that'd somehow end up everywhere. I promise no surfing in the hall though, though I have one Pokémon that will be pretty pumped with it's STAB attacks and I'm not sure that's any better...

    The latest leader also is a reminder that I really need to finish up the last Pokémon ranger game I picked up, unless they plan on doing a Deoxys promo in NA as well, its my only reasonable way to get one.

    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...

    Just for clarification, what do you mean by "level up for the match" and "level down for the match"?

    He means that the game will automatically scale your Pokemon's levels regardless of what they are to level 50.

    If you've thinking of challenging the League, I'd be wary of Riley and Bugly. Those two are some of the roughest leaders you're likely to face.

    Now if you'll excuse me, Earthquaked floors don't fix themselves.

    New leaders are going up with increasing frequency!

    Also, on Tuesday, I posted a picture of the Trainer pins we're going to be giving out this year! They're SO NICE you guys. Check the site! (http://www.paxpokemonleague.net)

    Jiana's battles might be easy clean up for me, but I doubt you feel the same once you face her. I've seen here take down a fair number of challengers 1, 2, 3. No muss, no fuss.

    Calucian, on the other hand... Man, some days I just follow that guy around with a Dust Buster. Sand everywhere.

    I don't know if I can really keep up that level of being punny, I need to stop slacking and get my team finished as well as all the other last minute "less than 3 weeks to go" stuff.

    Pun while training! It is good exercise for pokemon battles!

    Today's leader has been posted! Beware her powerful brains! I am rather frightened of Vitani, the Conqueror of Knowledge! http://paxpokemonleague.net/

    Thought I'd mention that I set up a small Pokemon Showdown server specifically designed for the PAX Pokemon League rules. For more info, you can see the post on the PPL forums here: http://paxpokemonleague.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1089

    PAX East 2013 schedule is up. http://east.paxsite.com/schedule
    So, now we can see what we might miss in our quest to beat the Gym Leaders. Well, if we knew when the Leaders were going to be meeting up in the Lounge, we could. ;)

  • Fetch26291Fetch26291 MassachusettsRegistered User regular
    Let's see, who is the next gym leader...

    Red. Ohhhhhhhhh boy. I'm in trouble. As soon as he spots me, he'll want to battle. (my cosplay: Team Rocket Grunt)

    Almost, but not quite... it'll be a bit later than that. ;D Suffice to say everything will be revealed days before PAX starts.

    This information will be going up either tomorrow or Thursday! Still working out some slight details. Sorry it's taken so long, but we just got the schedule today too, and we're working as fast as we can to get everything planned out. Remember, the PPL is community run! We're not privy to any PAX info that you're not. Keep an eye on the website.

    You can rest assured though that the PPL isn't going to interfere with anything else happening in the Handheld Lounge, so that should give you some idea of times we're NOT going to be having meetups. ;D

    There's also a new mechanic that I think you're going to want to know about which should be ready for release by next week. Suffice to say Handheld Meetups will not be the only place you'll be encountering groups of Leaders....

    It's official. "Batman & Robin" killed ice puns forever.

    I haven't played Pokemon in a few years, but I really enjoyed trading pokemon with Pokewalkers at the first Pax East. Kinda bummed they didn't continue the pokewalker for future games.

    I'm thinking of getting one of the newer games, the PPL sounds like a lot of fun - am I understanding correctly that if I want to participate, I should pick up White/Black, not White2 / Black2?

    Any of those will work: black, black 2, white, or white 2

    Looking at the PAX East 2013 map on Guidbook app...

    Pokémon Lounge right in front of the Handheld Lounge.
    PAX East gave the League it's own hangout spot. Awesome.

    Maybe, maybe not. We are trying to find out more info on the lounge because it is a surprise to us too!

    I'm excited to battle some gym leaders, it's my first PAX and I can't wait. Just one question. After you get the 8 badges you need to face the elite four, if you can get them, can you continue to battle other leaders and get the extra badges? Or are they only for people who need them to advance due to limited supply? Either way I'll probably face as many of them as I can if they're not busy just for fun and to see how I match up.

  • VolaroVolaro The Iron Gentleman Registered User regular
    You can continue to battle other leaders for funsies, far as I'm aware.

    Also, less than two weeks 'til the great Pokebrawl begins~ How exciting!

  • YavariceYavarice Registered User regular
    I'm pretty excited to play against other actual players - but me being me I'd probably be too timid to go up and challenge someone. If any gym leaders (or trainers period) see someone in a Victini, Elekid or Shaymin costume who may or may not look lost, make me participate in a battle!

  • RiokennRiokenn Registered User regular
    I was foolish to use pokemon I actually love instead of following a guide last year....did not win a single badge.

  • CoanCoan TorontoRegistered User regular
    The real solution there is to love all Pokemon ;) I don't have an answer for the mild torture that is breeding for IV's and grinding EV's though.

    It's better to loose with your team than win with someone else's, and don't let the internet trick you into thinking there's only one way to win. Learn from your experiences, rally your crew, teach them some new tricks and give it another go.

  • RiokennRiokenn Registered User regular
    Oh I know, still gonna use my favorites...though I don't expect to win a match with my slipshod team.

    So long as you don't build a team out of feebas, magikarps and sunkerns that is.

    No one can help you if you go that route.

    Also some leaders are harder than others. There are also a wide variety! You never know, your team may do much better against a leader you haven't met yet.

    This is very true! We try to cater to a wide range of difficulty levels, so if you go up against a super tough leader and lose, don't despair! Seek out other leaders!

    Also, trainer cards will hopefully help to recommend leaders at an appropriate level for you, so definitely make sure you get one of those!

    Don't be timid! Just like in the games, gym leaders are eager to accept your challenge! Plus, you don't even have to solve a convoluted button-pushing puzzle to get to them! So if you see someone in a green scarf, ask to battle them!

    That was the problem for me last year, faced three gym leaders and none of them gave me a card.
