Pokemon AniRevo League Challenge

UBC Esports will be hosting a Pokemon Gym Leaders event all over the convention! Several ‘Gym Leaders’ will be wandering the convention wearing arm-bands with the Pokemon Gym Leaders logo and hats with pokemon on them.

Schedule:
All throughout the weekend.

Each of them can be approached and challenged to a pokemon battle with your 3ds and Pokemon Sun/Moon ( or Ultra Sun/Moon ). They will have a team of entirely one type, and can be battled in a 6v6 singles battle. Upon defeating a gym leader, they will give you a badge. If you have collected at least 5 badges you will be told to search for the pokemon professor. If you find and beat them you may go to the games room and report in. If you’re the first one to complete the challenge, you’ll receive a special prize as the AniRevo Pokemon Champion! But there will still be a consolation prize available for all attendees who complete the challenge afterwards.
