PAX Online is just around the corner. We wish we could see everyone in person but know this virtual event will connect us in new and exciting ways! We want to make sure there is a way for you to be a Gamer who Gives Back! Now more than ever our hospitals need technology to connect families, distract patients during procedures, and ensure our gaming technology specialists have the tools they need to produce virtual content.
We have outlined all the ways you can engage with us and share what we are doing during PAX Online 24/9!

2020 PAX Pokemon League
The PAX Pokemon League is an unofficial decade long tradition, fan-run alternate reality game that is played at PAX!. With PAX changing we decided we needed to as well, so for the nine days of PAX Online you can find Gym Leaders, The Elite 6 and Our Champions on the PPL Discord! Queue up to the battle leader, just like the PAX Handheld Lounge. Defeat them in a Pokemon battle (using your copy of Pokemon Sword/Shield) and you’ll receive their badge! If you can collect eight badges, you’ll earn the right to challenge the Elite Four, and perhaps a Champion, for the right to be crowned a Champion yourself!
The PAX Pokemon League is not a Pokemon tournament. Just like in the Pokemon games, ANYONE can bring a team of their favorite Pokemon and challenge the League!
