PAX AUS 2018 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 challenge the Elite Four and our formidable Champion - for the right to be crowned Champion!

What do I need to participate?
To be a challenger, all that is required is a copy of Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon (or Ultra), keen eyesight* and a love of Pokémon Battle! Gym leaders will be all over this year's 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 Gym Leader 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!

A little more info...
This will be the fifth outing for the PAX Pokémon League in Aus but 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 countless 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 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 alert their locations as they wander the convention floor, and a Facebook group ( where if you like us you can see news and Hall of Fame entrants!

What are the rules?
The rules are posted at

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, follow our twitter or like our facebook page!
