Portable Kaiju Super Battle League

The portable kaiju super battle league invites you to take part in its sixth annual tournament. So train up your Pokémon because we have some interesting things planned for this year and can’t wait to see you at Otakon.

This year the Portable Kaiju Super Battle League and Team Fan will be battling for control of Otakon, so it's up to you to pick a side and help decide the fate of  Pokémon battling at Otakon. Will you fight for the prestige of the amazing Kaiju League or the glory of the Unflappable Team Fan! 

This year we will continue to use Pokémon Sword and Shield for the Nintendo Switch. You are welcome to challenge any Battle Master or team Fan Grunt, however beating someone from the opposite team will gain points for your team! If you can collect 8 badges on Saturday night the Serious Shi will be available to truly test your abilities as a trainer if you make it past them then prepare to battle each other on Sunday to crown a new league Champion!

The rules for this year’s tournament are as follows:

  1. This is a for fun event (it’s okay to take it seriously, especially the championship tournament, but remember the Battle Masters & Team Fan members are there to help you have fun.)
  2. Make sure to update your game before coming to Otakon (you don’t have to have the expansions, but as long as your game is up to date everyone will be able to use any available Pokémon)
  3. All matches are 4v4 doubles with all Pokémon set to lvl 50
  4. You may have a team of 9 Pokémon, with 4 main Pokémon and 5 alternates
  5. Duplicate Pokémon are not allowed (exception: Pokémon with multiple forms like Toxtricity, with its amped and low key forms or Lycanroc would be fine as well as different Alolan, Kantonian, or Galarian forms. However, a Pokémon like Snorlax who can Dynamax or Gigantamax would not be legal to use in the same match since you can not use both forms in a single match.)
  6. Multiple items are not allowed in play at the same time example:you could have both a Vaporeon and Snorlax with leftovers so long as they are both aren’t used in the same match.
  7. Gigantamaxing and Dynamaxing is legal
  8. A trainer can only put one opposing Pokémon to sleep at a time.

General info

If you can beat enough Team Fan Grunts and battle masters, starting Saturday night you can face the Serious Shi. If you can beat them you will receive the mark of the challenger! The Mark of the Challenger or the old Challenge coins grants you One entry to the champions tournament (you don’t have to use it this year but we will be keeping track of who uses their coins and marks). The tournament will follow the same rules as the gym challenge with at least the finals being best 2 out of 3. This year's Champion in addition to having their name added to the Kaiju Cup and  receiving a wall scroll to laud their victory, will also receive a complimentary membership to next year's Otakon!

Thanks, and we look forward to challenging you this year!
