PAX AUS 2014 Gym Leader Application Form
is now live!What is the PAX Pokémon League?
The PAX Pokémon League is a weekend-long alternate reality game played at PAX!
Gym leaders wander the convention center halls, ready to battle upstart young challengers like you. Find them and defeat them in battle, and you'll receive their badge. If you can collect eight gym badges, you'll earn the right to find and challenge the Elite Four, and the Champion, for the right to be crowned champion yourself!What do I need to participate?
To be a challenger, all that is required is a copy of Pokémon X or Pokémon Y, keen eyesight*, and a love of Pokémon Battle! Gym leaders will be all over this years PAX AUS, and can be identified by their bright green scarves. Approach them, challenge them to a battle, and if they deem you worthy, you'll earn their badge! No need to sign up or anything, just find a gym leader and start battling!
If you’d prefer to be more involved, we’re always on the lookout for dedicated Gym Leaders - you can submit your application with this handy-dandy Application Form
If you have any questions, would like to learn more about PPL or anything else, please feel free to hit me up directly or head over to the PPL website
! We even have photos of PPL East’s Champions.A little more info...
This will be the first outing for the PAX Pokémon League in Aus. PPL began at PAX Prime 2010 by the dedicated Professor Pine, and with the support of dedicated Gym Leaders, the PAX Pokémon League has helped hundreds of challengers prove themselves in battle and earn countless badges. Note: This is not a tournament, PPLs focus is on fun! PPL has Gym Leaders of a variety of difficulty levels, and is open to all. Results may vary. If symptoms persist please see a Doctor.
*Note: Keen Eyesight only required to see neon green scarves in a sea of black t-shirts.
If, however, you want to know more about the league, join the community of challengers, and find information and hints that will help you locate and identify the gym leaders... well, you should visit http://www.paxPokemonleague.net
where in the coming months we're going to be revealing leader profiles, detailed rules, and other fun things. We've also got a twitter account (@PAXPokemon
) where gym leaders will often post their locations as they wander the con, and a Facebook group (http://www.facebook.com/pages/PAX-Pokemon-League/139432372766011
) where if you like us you can see news and pictures from our Hall of Fame!What are the rules?
The rules have been posted at http://paxPokemonleague.net/rules/What do I win?
Those who conquer the league will win eternal glory as a champion, being immortalized in the Hall of Fame, along with respect from their peers, and the ability to be forced to sit through the game's credits sequence.
Also, there may be prizes...That sounds awesome, can I help?
We are always looking for outgoing people interested in becoming leaders, but also artists and web developers interested in equipping PPL-ite to help make PPL bigger, shinier and more mega!! Details on leader applications will be posted in the very next post!So, that's great, but what is this thread for?
This is the place to interact with challengers and leaders! We're always looking for cool ideas to improve the league, or input on rules that will help make the league more fun.
We also want to spread the word about the league! Tell us if you have any ideas about people we should talk to to get the word out.
If nothing else, we're always up for discussions about shorts and how comfy and easy to wear they are. Or we can talk about how our Rattata is in the top percentage of all Rattata....You guys are cool people, can I hang out with you?
You sure can! Visit our forums

Applications to be a Gym Leader have closed, but anyone at PAX can be a challenger!
