View Full Version : Competitive Pokemon Club

01-08-2012, 11:59 AM
My ten year old son is interested in forming a competitive Pokémon club with other tweens and teens. Using competitive battle simulators and software obtained through www.pokemon-online.eu, battles take place on servers. Battle simulation goes beyond an interest in Pokémon cards, cartoons and popular video games. Knowledge/Skills required include: Pokémon tiers; stats, effort values and individual values; prediction and creative battle strategy; and Pokémon move sets. Players can be beginners or experts. Club members could meet up on servers for play and, if local, could meet about once a month to hang out and battle. We are located in Prince William County in Virginia. Members will work out other club details. If your child is interested in starting a club, please have them email Sean at [email protected] If you would like more information from me, please email me at [email protected] A good site that explains more about this type of Pokémon play is www.smogon.com/about

Haha I just picked this up off the state group and forwarded it to my teen . .. .he seemed interested but I'm not sure if he responded . . .

Hey Cara, yes he did! Sean was so excited -- his first email. I put the "ad" up here, on VA Eclectic and on Prince William Co HS. I'm hoping he can hook up with a few people and form this club. It's a big step for him -- socially. I told him I recognized Orion's name and knew you were from Virginia too.

BUMP! I'm bumping this thread in hopes that there are more kids out there playing Competitive Pokemon or that are interested in giving it a try and joining up with my son!

My dd 10 will love this. She just read your post and wants to get involved. She doesn't have her own email, but I'll let her use one of mine. We just downloaded the client and tried it out, seems okay.

Great ohiodad! My son would be glad to shower her the ropes.

I sent the info to a homeschooling friend that has a son that is almost 10 and loves Pokemon. Good luck!
