Congratulations to Australia’s first year of League Champions!
If you see any errors, or if you were left off accidentally or something’s missing, leave a comment! If your picture is missing, send it to us! We’ll do our best to fix it!
Thank you to everyone involved! Especially you, double Mewtwo kid 🙂 See you in 2015!
The fourth and final Episode of the PAX Pokemon League Australia Podcast is up! CHECK IT OUT!
Produced by and starring the sizzlingly electric (and eclectic) Professor Fern, and this week featuring PPL Aus administrator/Ghost-type-in-the-machine gym leader Phil (as always) and Bug-type gym leader Priam! They talk about how PPL Aus went overall, give some shout-outs to a few memorable challengers, and talk about how YOU can get involved in the PPL Aus!
In short: if you’re interested in getting involved in PPL Aus as a gym leader next year, applications will open up some time in late May/early June of next year. That’s a long time to wait and it’s easy to forget, so I suggest following the PPL Twitter account (@PAXPokemon) or Like our Facebook group (PAX Pokemon League) or if you’re social media adverse, you can even follow our RSS feed! We’ll announce when applications open.
If you’re planning on attending any of the other PAXes, the PPL will be there too! It’s too late to apply to be a gym leader for PPL South, but applications for PPL East will open very soon! So watch for that… and PPL Prime applications will go up sometime in March!
While you’re waiting, though, follow Phil’s advice in the podcast and join the forums! Chat with gym leaders, give us ideas for next year’s League, share stories… it’s a good place. 🙂
(Also, we goofed and didn’t link to it, but Episode 3 went up a few weeks ago! Did you miss it? Give it a listen!)
Thank you everyone for making the first PPL Australia a big success!
We’ll have another update with some pictures soon, but for now I wanted to say a few thank yous:
Thanks to Phil (philomglol on the forums and on twitter) for agreeing to organize the League and run things on the ground! Without him this wouldn’t have been possible.
Thanks to loltsundere for the wonderful gym leader art, and my good friend Kim for helping keep the art side of things organized.
Thanks to the great and powerful Morganstern for designing the badges for those gym leaders who asked (Morganstern has designed SO MANY BADGES you guys, he’s amazing).
Thanks to all the gym leaders who worked hard to put together their teams and put their time and money and effort into making this happen…
and thanks to YOU, for participating! The League would be nothing without you! We hope you play again next year!
If you want to join our community, come join our forums! You’ll find lots of gym leaders hanging around.
Lots of important news! First, PPL Aus, like PPL Prime and PPL East before it, will feature Trainer Cards!
When you challenge a gym leader for the first time, win or lose, they’ll give you one of these! It has a list of all the gym leaders (to help you identify them and keep track of the ones you’ve faced) as well as a list of all the ways to keep track of us (social media stuff) and a helpful list of Meetup Times!
Meetups will be held in the Handheld Lounge (level 0, click that for a map) at:
Friday, 10:30 AM
Sunday, 3:00 PM
Meetups are a great way to find lots of gym leaders to battle, as well as other challengers! Compare badges, get to know some new friends, or maybe… Rivals?!?
Finally: if you manage to collect 8 badges, find Gym Leader Phil (he’s the PPL Aus Administrator, and also a gym leader!) and show him. He’ll take your picture for the Hall of Fame and give you a prize! (While supplies last, we don’t know how fast they’ll go!)
There’s no Elite 4 or Champion to defeat this year; the League is starting small to gauge interest. But if we get enough demand, we hope to grow next year!
Episode 2 of the PAX Pokemon League Australia Podcast is up! Check it out here!
Produced by and starring the always-verdant Professor Fern, and this week featuring PPL Aus administrator Phil (again) and gym leader BurritoLite!
As a side note: GYM LEADERS START GOING UP TOMORROW! So don’t wander off!
If you’re interested in getting a sneak-peak at the first ever PAX Pokemon League Aus, wrap your ears around this!
Produced by and starring our very own Professor Fern, and a big thanks to AGanoti!
Prepare for trouble, and make it double. Double PAX Pokemon League that is!
PAX Aus 2014 will see the PPL train roll into Southern Cross Station this Halloween, and I cordially invite you to participate!
Please make an account on the PPL forums to get involved and hit up the official PPL Aus Gym Leader Application Form if participating in the inaugural PPL Aus sounds like something that you might be into.
SO ARE WE!!
This will be the first outing for the PAX Pokémon League in Australia! Keep a look out here for when applications for AUS Gym Leaders will open and join us in battling the hundreds of challengers of varying levels that try to prove themselves in order to earn badges and achieve fame!
