A battle is fought deep within the seedy criminal underworld of Atomic Lollipop; a battle which was conspired by the
fates themselves. Two noble warriors meet under the star of destiny and duel for eternal glory and fantastic wealth before an eager, bloodthirsty audience. Truth and tragedy are dispensed from the barrel of a gun.
This is an open competition for the strong-willed and heroic. Sign up at the Russian Roulette booth
Professor Oak needs your help!
The professor is recruiting APOPpers with a keen eye and a steady hand to compile a photo log of the wildlife contained within the CPCC (The Canadian Pokemon Conservation Complex- otherwise known as the Sheraton Hotel and Convention Centre)! Pokemon cosplayers will be planted throughout APOP, but wild Pokemon are often camera-shy, so you might have to go into super mega ninja stealth mode to catch them on film!
The POKEMON SNAP PHOTO COMPETITION runs the entire APOP weekend, so hustle over to the info booth on Sunday afternoon to have your pics judged for Pokemon rarity and photo quality. The APOPper that snaps the best pic will WIN A KIGURUMI courtesy of our friends at KIGURUMI CANADA (for use as camouflage on future Pokemon safaris)!
Only the best shots will do for the Professor's Pokemon Report., so sharpen your photography skills and get ready to SNAP!
