Solon of the Seven Sages
Solon of the original Seven Sages was once a wise leader of the Johto region. A statesman from an Ecruteak City long gone, he popularized plutocratic development, destabilizing the tyrannical power system in place where he who had the strongest Pokemon held political position. Solon’s political reforms helped shape the modern Johto legislative systems and democratic philosophies. “Keep Everything With Moderation” is his original proverb. There are currently no records of Solon in his later years, or any death records.

Displaced by time and space after an accident exploring Ilex Forest, Solon the Seventh Sage has found himself once again in a place of power as a Gym Leader of the PAX Pokemon League. A new supporter of Team Plasma, he has been noted of having inspired “Moderation” within the once extremist team. Likewise, he will show challengers that power lies not within the Left or the Right but in moderation. Even as the Baton is Passed through the generations, the wisest and most powerful will reign supreme through balance, not brute force or clever trickery.

Pythia, the oracle at Delphi

Pythia, the oracle at Delphi, was tasked to bring the gods their former recognition and carve a place for them in the new world. With the gods being slowly forgotten, it became evident proof by power was necessary. In this, the oracle would serve not only as the voice of the gods, but also the hand. Even Poseidon returned to support the oracle turned warrior. Under his guidance, Team Aqua was determined to hold the most potential. With her team, Pythia joined the organization to help it rebuild after failing to capture Kyogre and hopefully restore the gods with them. With the clash of villains coming to a head, it is the will of the gods that Aqua come out victorious and Pythia shall see it through.

Beating her will earn you the Delphi Badge!








Jose – Man of Mystery

Jose tried them all; Rocket, Magma, Aqua, Galactic, Plasma, but none of them felt right. He could see the foil to their plans right from the start, but every time he brought it to the leader, they said, “No way, Jose!”. Wandering around by himself, he realized that he doesn’t need to be in a gang to be a part of something, he can make a change by himself. Having just left Plasma and a bit of their ideals still with him, he released all but one of his Pokemon. If he can make a difference by himself, then his Pokemon can win battles by themselves. Be prepared to test yourself and your favourite team member and see how well they stand on their own.

Dr. Kronus

Dr. Kronus is a shadow of the man he once was. His former association and subsequent re-association with Team Rocket has left his reputation shattered. Any academic standing he once had is gone. He is, for all intents and purposes, a laughing stock among the archeological community. This, combined with the recent death of the Marowak he had raised from a Cubone has left his psyche fragmented. He was in a state of paranoid delusions when Looker found him. Looker could see that there was more to this broken man, that he could be a useful ally.

Looker took him in and put him through weeks of rehabilitation and psychiatric examination. The good doctor took to it well. He had a new purpose. He was going to bring down the organizations that had abandoned him at his most vulnerable. After the intense process of pulling himself from the brink of madness, Dr. Kronus went on his sojourn, finding new pokemon to befriend. None of them could fill the void left by Marowak, but they stood by him, ready to help him.

Now he stands at the gates of PAX, his new friends by his side, taking the role of the Big Damn Hero. He is prepared to face any challengers with a renewed sense of purpose and fighting spirit. He knows that he emerge victorious in the end, as all empires eventually erode away, falling victim to the sands of time.

Defeating him will earn you the Sands of Time Badge!

Although he was originally hired for his expertise in legendary Pokémon, his recent years have been spent raiding the Relic Castle and other ruins for various ancient treasures to help fund Cyrus’ diabolical plans. During his most recent adventures Karl has taken to using Pokemon from the more arid regions of the world where he is always on the lookout for treasure. Karl was summoned to Pax in the hopes that his knowledge might be able to give Team Galactic an edge over the competition.
