Very excited to share that not only will PAX Pokemon League (PPL)occur again at PAX West, it's ALSO the 10th Anniversary! TEN years of bringing 'something extra' to lovers of Pokemon video games to the convention.
What is PPL?
--PAX Pokemon League is an opportunity for any attendee, staff member, Enforcer, etc. to play the video game 'in real life'. Gym Leaders are volunteers who have prepped a team or teams for Challengers (that's YOU!) to play against. Win against 8 (or more) Gym Leaders and move on to battle against the Elite Leaders. Win against 4 (or more) Elite Leaders and move on to challenge the League Champion!
Where is PPL?
--You can typically find PPL in the Handheld Lounge, and infrequently find Gym Leaders and Elite Leaders staffing or being social around the PPL Booth in the Diversity Lounge. Gym Leaders wear BRIGHT, neon green fleece scarves with PAX Pokemon League on them.
What Do I Need to Play?
--a 2DS or 3DS with a copy of Pokemon Ultra Sun or Pokemon Ultra Moon
--a team of Pokemon (up to 6) to battle against a Gym Leader with (some Gym Leaders may not require battles, and instead have trivia, drawing, arcade game, or similar Challenge to complete to earn their Badge)
What Do I Get When I Win a Battle Against a Gym Leader?
--You earn a Badge. An actual, real, physical Gym Badge, designed by and specific to that Gym Leader. They're 1" pins and the badge art is wonderfully diverse and excellently creative. If you win against an Elite Leader and/or the League Champion then the badge is metallic and SHINY!
What Do I Get If I Win Against the League Champion?
--FAME! A CERTIFICATE! SOCIAL MEDIA ATTENTION!
What Are the Rules?
--check out http://paxpokemonleague.net/rules/
for all the details
What's This I Hear About a Raffle?
--There is always a raffle. Tickets obtained by completing side quests provided by PPL. Prizes are Pokemon-related and pretty cool.
Additional comments, question, curiosities feel free to post and we'll be glad to follow-up!
Hope to see you at PAX West '19!
