Check out our Guidebook!

The PAX Pokemon League East 2015 has a Guidebook!

http://guidebook.com/guide/32618

Guidebook is a app for mobile phones that allows you to access schedules and information for conventions. PAX has an official one (that you should totally download), but the PPL has one of its own!

Click on that link for instructions on how to get the guidebook app, then search for PAX Pokemon League 2015 and download our actual guidebook! It has a schedule of meetup and raffle times, as well as a list of all gym leaders so you can keep track of who you’ve battled!

If you already have the Guidebook App, you can open it and scan this QR code to get our guide, too!

Guidebook QR code

(Note: because we’re not flush with cash we could only afford the free version, which limits us to 200 downloads, so if you’re not going to PAX East, please don’t download it! And if we run out of downloads, we’re really sorry! :( All the information in the guidebook is available here on the site, though, so don’t fret!)

One of our own PAX Pokemon organizers, Kim Swanner not only devotes a lot of time as the PAX Pokemon Art Director and East Gym Leader illustrator,  but also donated a lot of the prizes for this year’s raffle!

Check out her site and her etsy!

How to Find Us and Meetup Times!

Once you get to PAX, look for some extremely good-looking people wearing bright green scarves like these:

Screen Shot 2015-02-26 at 2.44.15 PM

That’s how you can identify a PAX Pokemon League gym leader who is ready for battle!

This year, we are starting to use these swanky new buttons so that you can determine who our Elite leaders are!

If you see someone with one of these ELITE buttons on, make sure you have enough badges to battle them! You need Eight (8) Badges!

The PAX Pokemon League operates mainly inside of the Hand Held Lounge!

Trainer Cards for PPL East 2015!

The PAX Pokémon League East is proud to present the designs for this year’s Trainer Cards!

Trainer Cards!

After your first Gym Leader battle, win or lose, you’ll be awarded their very own Trainer Card! (If they forget, make sure to remind them!) In addition to being a nice memento of your PAX Pokémon League journey, each trainer card shows Gym Leaders recommended for you to battle and the badge you’ll earn if you defeat them! (Of course you can battle any leader, not just those on your card.)

On the back of the card is info about the League, such as contact information and Meetup times! We hope these trainer cards will help make your PAX Pokemon League experience great!
