    Hey! I'm just starting out in the world of Pokemon Leagues. I've read go-pokemon.com ( and PokéGym's guide to starting and operating a league by Ultimatdra.) pretty thoroughly I think, but I find it all a bit confusing.
    I was really into pokemon, and the TCG when it first started in American, but I was a little kid at the time, and TRAGICALLY I've been out of the Pokemon World for a while.
    Thankfully, I'm back in, though a little out of date, but extremely excited to start a League!
    But I've got a few questions, and things I need help with. (This is my first ever League season)

    I just learned that Wizards of the Coast doesn't do it anymore that it's been transferred to Nintendo, but I don't understand what that means for playing the game, in leagues, and in general.

    I'm moving to the Rochester area and I don't know anyone there. My little brother and I are the only ones that would be in the league to start off with, so I would really appreciate ideas on how to advertise and get members. (I plan to run the League at a library, not a game store, if that changes how to advertise.)

    How do you go about enrolling members once you have them and getting them POP id's and such?

    What does the League leader say at meetings? What do you DO at meetings?

    What if I can't get a good number of members?

    I've made a website for the League, and if anyone would taek a look at it and tell me if it's okay, that would be terrific!Here

    Also, if you have any general tips, pointers, things I should know, etc., I would LOVE to hear them.

    I am only 16 so I can only legally be the League Leader, but I would be the one with the responsibilities of the owner, but my dad or mom would help out with anything that needed an adult, and be the technical League Owner if paper work needed to be filled out.
    I am up for the responsibility and have the time to run this league, and I would be very grateful with any help answers, and advice you could offer.
    =D Thank you!

    First off, welcome to the world of League Leaders.

    I will try and give any kind of help I can. I am a League Owner and League Leader in the Denver, Co area.

    This is all I can think of right now, but I will add more if I think about it. If you have other questions, post them here or you can PM me them.

    Not a problem. Luckily, when I started working with the Leagues, it was working for a PTO helping him out. He was a great source of info for me, and really helped me when I started my own League. He is one of the League Leaders at my League as well.

    I have found most League Leaders to be really good to bounce ideas and questions off of, since we have all been there before.

    Anyway, I am glad that my answers helped you out, and fell free to contact me for anything else that you might need.

    There's a beautiful topic plastered to the top of the League forums. Read it over, it will answer all of the questions that you have right now, and probably preempt many of your other questions that arise.

    If you took the time to read the first line of his post, you will notice that he said he already did that.
