Three Out of Five Elites Revealed: Damekage, the Pokemon Genetics Researcher, Erkenhelm the Wacky, Waving, Inflatable, Tubeman and Sans, The Judge of Karma

Damekage, the Pokemon Genetics Researcher

A Pokemon researcher from Kalos interested in how and why Pokemon evolve he found himself in Alola. There he found himself fascinated with how climates had changed the way some Pokemon had evolved. In doing that research he came across a Pokemon that seemed to sparkle in the light. This led to his research on why some Pokemon will rarely have a unique coloring to them and shine in the light. He is after the answer to the shiny Pokemon. Bring your unique Pokemon to challenge him and earn the Genetics Emblem.

Genetics Emblem

Erkenhelm the Wacky, Waving, Inflatable

Ever since he was young Erkenhelm loved wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tubemen. They were silly and fun to watch and he never tired of them. He also loved Pokemon and decided to combine those two things by putting together a team of Pokemon who loved to wave their bodies around just like the tubemen he enjoyed so much. When he heard about the PAX Pokemon League he gathered up his friends and set out to entertain challengers the same way he has been entertained for years: by being wacky! Defeat Erkenhelm and gain the Wacky Emblem!

Wacky Emblem

 

Sans, The Judge of Karma

Sans is a skeleton that’s very laid back to the point of laziness and loves puns and jokes, spending his days in the Underground being a sentry on the lookout for humans. Behind the goofy smile, however, lies a very dangerous monster that is equal parts intelligent and powerful. Be careful not to get on his bad side, or else you’re gonna have a bad time. If you have enough Determination to make it past his judgment, then he’ll let you pass with the Judgment Emblem in hand.

Clyde, the Gym Guide and Tom Olive, the White Pokemon Ranger burst in!

Clyde the Gym Guide

Hopped up on the thrill of helping new trainers at the last PAX West, Clyde has decided to use his surprising amount of free time to visit the gyms in the PAX West region. That isn’t all though, since he will again have a badge of his own. Yo! Champ in the Making! outwit Clyde with your POKEMON knowledge to earn your very own Fresh Water Badge!

Freshwater Badge

Tom Olive, the White Pokemon Ranger

After months of preparation and planing, the Pokemon Rangers thought they had enough to take down the evil syndicate known as Team Rocket. A full on assault against one of their major hideouts was looking to be a success when Giovanni himself showed up with a mysterious new pokemon named Mewtwo. Tomy tried to end the battle quickly with all 7 of his Pokemon launching a combined attack against the unknown threat but its psychic powers where too great. It alone was enough to take out Tomy and his entire team. After suffering major casualties, Tomy left the Pokemon Rangers and closed his Gym in search of power. Power strong enough to take down Giovanni and Mewtwo once and for all. He has traveled across many regions and fought countless battles in order to learn and grow. Now hes back, stronger than ever and with a new team of friends. Dawning the colour white, he has re-opened his Gym in the Kanto Safari Zone and enlisted in the Pokemon Rangers once more. As he sharpens his skills by taking on challengers in his Gym, he patiently waits and plans his revenge on Giovanni and Mewtwo. Defeat Tom Olive and you’ll earn yourself the Morph Badge!

Rupi, the Great Fairy makes an entrance!

Rupi, the Great Fairy

 Needing a break from the rather dull life as a fairy, Rupi began looking for an adventure of her own. The fierce Pax Pokemon League proved energetic enough to get her attention and for a while, she watched. The courage to say challenge me, the wisdom to know what moved to use and when, and the strength to pull through the battle standing victor. The determination motivated Rupi not only to better herself, but to maybe instill those characteristics into others. For a year, she trained with her friends to have the same virtues as the league – and a little blond boy in a green tunic she once knew – so that maybe, she could experience the excitement of competition. Dazzle Rupi to earn yourself the Sparkle Badge!
