PokéCommunity Get-Together 2009




The Get-Together will be held from 12:00 AM Friday, August 21 to 11:59 PM Monday, August 24 (these dates are tentative and may be moved forward - oh, and they're EST). It's four days to accommodate for all the other people in the world.

What is the Get-Together?


The PokéCommunity Get-Together is a mostly member-managed event - it's where we try to make sure we can bring as many PC members as we can to the community (by mass email). For the last time and a few times before that where we've had a Get-Together, it's been about events. The main event - we have one giant chat to talk our heads off (and this all the Get-Together was about for the first three times we've had it).

All events are currently taking place in a special, dedicated event forum! Go there now and join the events!

A random number generator got me Vesper as a judge. :( I also gave first-priority to a ROM hacking mod that asked. I haven't contacted either about it either. :P
