Doppler Radar the Weather Man and Jose the PokeRanger have made their debut at PAX West 2016!

Doppler Radar the Weather Man

PPL---Doppler

What if mankind can control the sky? What if we could bend mother nature to our will? Imagine the possibilities! Forest fire? Bring out the rain! Torrential downpour? Part the clouds! Too hot or too cold? Never again! Think of all the possibilities! All the help we could bring. That’s all I’ve ever wanted… To help… But they laughed… Everyone laughed. Calling my research senseless and absurd. I’ll Show them! I’LL SHOW THEM ALL!! What ever the means… Overcome natures wrath and claim a Four Cast Badge!

Jose the PokeRanger

PPL---Jose

Something evil has come to the streets of Seattle! The Mighty Morphing Power Rangers are here to help subdue these dastardly villains but they need your help! They can handle any oversize monsters, but they are not exactly professionals when it comes to Pokemon battles. However, they need to make sure you, the challenger, are tough enough to stop the evil doer behind all of this mess. Aye-yi-yi-yi-yi! You’ll need the power of teamwork to overcome these teenagers with attitude and win the Ranger Badge!

Lucas and Nienla sashay into PAX West 2016!

Lucas the Boy from Nowhere!

PPL---Lucas

Lucas has lived a rough life growing up on the Nowhere Islands, with his family fracturing due to the attempts of a power-hungry tyrant and his pig-masked army trying to reshape the once quiet islands they all lived on. Through his adventure to try and put an end to the threat to save his home, Lucas discovered he possessed the power of PSI, allowing him to harness both incredible power as well as a deep connection with Psychic Pokemon. Lucas may be timid, but don’t let that fool you: the battles he’s been part of have made the mental toughness of him and his Psychic friends unbreakable. If you can shake off the effects of this PSI onslaught, the Needle Badge will be yours, along with Lucas’ friendship!

 Leaving the hustle and bustle of an office job for the valley life has done Nienla good. In between tending to her crops and raising livestock, this spring chicken is accepting challengers. BUT, you better get to her before her energy runs out…Will you harvest a victory, blossom into a better trainer or cry until the cows come home? Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket if you want to defeat Nienla’s team to earn the Stardew Badge!

Vi the Electrifying Princess and Gonzo the Psychicdelic Hippie enter PPL West 2016!

Vi the Electrifying Princess

PPL---Vi

 

 Vi was once sealed away under water in the oceans of Hoenn. She emerged last East, but she was locked away for a reason, everyone thought it was for her own protection, but it’s actually for the protection of everyone around her. Vi brings incredible strength, but strength towards destruction. After emerging from the ocean at PAX East, now she brings countless and endless thunderstorms to all of the land. Nothing will stand in her way. Call upon the sun if you lust for the Calm of the Storm Badge .

Gonzo the Psychicdelic Hippie

PPL---Gonzo

Gonzo, a far out trainer from the Kalos region, has been traveling through different regions exploring them and what they have to offer. In his travels, he came across psychic type Pokemon and became extremely fascinated with them. From then on his travels have consisted of him collecting more psychic Pokemon, meditating with those Pokemon, and battling to grow closer to them. Because of his fascination with the powers of his Pokemon he obtained the title of the Psychicdelic Hippie. You will have to send some pretty dark vibes his way to obtain yourself the Psychicdelic Badge.

Two more Leaders! Thomas and Clyde!

Thomas the Solo Fighter!

PPL---Thomas

After spending many unfulfilling years as a software programmer for the of the Devon Corporation in Hoenn, a freak accident with a new invention convinced Thomas that the world as he knew it was a simulation. He quit his job and set out to find the strongest Pokemon, hoping to one day to battle his way out of the simulated world. Although you’ll only need to defeat a single Pokemon to win, he will choose randomly between six strong Fighting types, so be ready for anything!
Show Thomas he’s not “The One” to earn the Neo Badge!

The Neo Badge

Clyde the Gym Guide!

PPL---Clyde

Clyde has spent the last several years under the employ of several local gym leaders, giving challengers tips and strategies to help them in their journey toward being the next Pokemon champion. Seeming to have a lot of free time, and a healthy travel budget, he always seems to be right where he is needed to give that one crucial tip to defeat the latest challenge. This year, he has decided to try his had at being a gym leader himself, using his knowledge of journeys past to test a new generation of trainer’s skill. Take him down with your knowledge of the POKEMON world and you’ll receive the Fresh Water Badge!

The First Two Leaders Revealed for PAX West 2016! Annie and Milo Thatch!

Annie the Child of Darkness!

PPL---Annie

 Wanna play? Tibbers and I are always looking for someone new to be our friend. Our last playmate wasn’t fire proof. I want a turn to make you burn! Dodge the flames and win the Playtime Badge!!

Annie_bevel

Playtime Badge

Milo Thatch the Gibberish Expert!

PPL---Milo

Upon returning from Atlantis Milo got back to what he loved most (other than Kida), translating dead languages. While deep in one of his study sessions, Mr. Whitmore stopped by and dropped a new journal on his desk. This journal contained a language that Milo had never seen before and this made him as excited as a small child at Christmas. When he asked Mr. Whitmore where he found this journal, he replied that he received it from a friend in Johto who has been spending a lot of time in the Ruins of the Alph. This friend needed an expert in gibberish to help him solve the ancient mysteries of the site and so Milo, with a barely contained grin, made his way to Seattle where another submarine was prepared to take him to a whole new world.
Milo comes from the depths of Atlantis. Come prepared to swim through the ocean and clear away some rocky ruins to make headway to win the Shepard Badge!
