Basically, what this league will be is a casual play league where you can play the Pokemon TCG through an IM/voice chat client against other members of PokeCommunity. I'll keep track of standings, but, other than bragging rights, there will be no prizes.
Tips on Learning How to Play
Ask questions in the TCG section here on PokeCommunity (the section this thread is a sticky in) if you need help learning how to play.
PokeGym's Rulings Compendium is also a good place to check out rulings on some cards if you're confused about anything.
Trainer Kits are good things to learn from, as well. The most recent made to my knowledge is the HGSS Trainer Kit, which comes with a few pretty good cards in HGSS Raichu and HGSS Gyarados.
All PokeCommunity rules apply
All Trading Card Game section rules apply
All Organized Play Rules Apply - Except for the limits on what sets can be used.
Remember! No cheating!
Please keep track of how many prizes each player takes.

This is just a table that list the members who've joined the league and their contact information so you can contact them asking for a match. All of the PC usernames in the left column will be actual links.
MTWHF (7-10 PM GMT -6); Sat, Sun anytime before 10 PM
Have you guys heard of Redshark? It's a decent way of having Pokemon battles online. With full access to all Pokemon cards, even people who do not have the cards IRL can play.
Just a suggestion for you guys to consider.
In regards to me joining this league, I do have a Pokemon deck and though it isn't the TCG of my choice, I suppose I can have some fun here. I haven't played in months though and I'll have to update my deck for the new rotation and for the update in the rules. It will take some time before I am able to battle I'm afraid.

Oh wow. Sounds good for the time being. Makes it easier for people like me anyway. If that's the case, I can play right now lol. Make a couple of tweaks here and there to the deck and I'm ready to rock and roll!
Okay, I've added everyone's info to the contacts table. Gonna fix it later.
I'm actually available to play most weeknights after 7 PM in GMT -6 (Central Standard Time US & Canada), and almost anytime on weekends. So if anyone wants to play me, contact me. Feel free to talk about your matches and post match logs in this thread.
alright, I'm ready to get my butt kicked. I'll be online with skype, so send me a video call and we can get the game underway. my skype username should be on my signature, but if you can't read it, it's Vespoid17
vespoid and i had an epic battle just now, my fire/water vs. his grass/water, 6 prize-card game. final score was 0-3 (prizes remaining) for me if i remember right. had a little trouble with his zoroark at first, but my emboar took charge.
