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!


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!



The Stardew Badge

Two more Leaders! Thomas and Clyde!

Thomas the Solo Fighter!


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!


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 Fresh Water Badge
