The PSU Pokémon Society

Penn State's premier Pokémon club lives here

The Penn State Pokémon Challenge

Every semester, our club hosts a FREE 2-day weekend event called the Penn State Pokemon Challenge (PSPC).  This event is meant to mirror the mechanics of the Pokemon games:  earn badges, go on side quests, and challenge the Elite 4.

  

On Saturday, 8 gym leaders (or equivalents) are placed around campus.  Their teams are usually mono-typed singles teams, but theme teams, doubles battles, triples battles, and rotation battles have been known to make an appearance.  Challengers have between 8 and 9 hours to roam around campus, complete side quests, challenge the gym leaders, and earn badges.  Those that obtain 7 or more badges earn the right to challenge the Elite 4 on the second day of the event.  


On Sunday, the worthy challengers battle through the Elite 4.  A challenger must defeat all four E4 members consecutively to be able to battle the Champion.  If the Champion is defeated, then a new Champion is crowned.  The winner of the event earns the right to be the Champion during the following semester's event AND get their name on the "Hall of Fame" plaque.

APRIL FOOLS 4/1

 
HAHAHA

After much deliberation, we have recognized the superiority of the Trading Card Game to the Video Game, and the single's formats.  We are thus reworking the event to be a TCG ONLY event.  More details to come

Remember Kids, Video Games are for Weenies!
