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!

Alt. Palette Mina, The Painter Captain

You may have already shown me your Pokemon might on Route 8 or on the Poni Gauntlet. Honestly though, battling isn’t my game, but drawing IS. So my challenge is a little bit different this time. Instead of ignoring you for art, I want you to make me art. Brush up on your art skills and be prepare to show me your best work! Pass Mina’s drawing challenge, with your art chops to earn the Crayon Pikachu Badge!

The Last Three Elites are Revealed: Cupcake Capone, Evans, and Travis Touchdown!

Cupcake Capone the Fairy Godfather!


At the center of the most prominent crime family of the Kalos region sits “Cupcake” Capone, the fairy godfather. Rising to notoriety by defeating some of the most dangerous and fearsome crime bosses in battle, Capone’s distinct use of fairy types quickly trumped the dark type Pokemon commonly used by other crime bosses and earned him the moniker “Fairy Godfather.” Make him an offer he can’t refuse to take the Wish Badge!


The Wish Badge

Evans the Paranormal Professional!


When there’s something strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call? Evans, the Pokemon Ghostbuster! Using the latest in patented Ghostbusting tech, he’s locked up all sorts of monsters, sprites and spooks troubling Kanto. But now, if you want his badge, you’ll have to face them all! Show Evans you ain’t afraid a no ghost to earn the Buster Badge!


The Buster Badge!

Travis Touchdown, the Crownless King!


Shortly after the assassination of his best friend Bishop at the hands of Jasper Batt. Jr and the ensuing revenge, Travis receives an unmarked envelope slid under his door with only the following inside:
“Jasper made an excellent puppet.
Just like you.”
After three years of tracking down ‘D.H.’ to the PPL, Travis returns to climb the ranks of the PPL in search of the real man responsible for his friend’s death and is prepared to strike down anyone in his way. Emerge as the last man standing to earn the Deathmatch Badge!

Lucas and Nienla sashay into PAX West 2016!

Lucas the Boy from Nowhere!


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!


The Needle Badge

Nienla Spring Chicken of the Valley!


 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!
