Do you want to be the very best? Like no one ever was?
If you do, now’s your chance. Illusions of Night [ION] is coming at you with the Elite Four Challenge.
Based on a Pokémon master’s final test, individual glovers will try to defeat a team of 4 [ION] members in hopes of winning an eLite Element Glove Set. [ION] has not revealed the rosters for each team, but with team names like “Unsponsored Monsters,” “WaterBenders” and “Beast Coast,” challengers will get all they can handle.
The Elite Four Challenge will be organized by [ION] member and tournament coordinator Youngblood. Instead of creating a typical competition judged by [ION], Youngblood wanted to include members of the gloving community by opening the matches up to public vote.
“I feel that we tend to be at the forefront of new events or new ideas in the gloving community,” Youngblood said. “I felt it was important for the team to do something big like a competition but I wanted it to be something completely new and never seen.”
With an official start date, [ION] will continue releasing team names on its Facebook page before accepting challengers, so keep your eyes peeled. If you’re interested in entering, shoot a message to [ION] that includes your name, glover tags, first video and the team you’d like to face. From there, the first “Elite Four” glover will post a video to the lounge.
All matches will be posted to the Glovers Lounge for the community to judge, and the results will be determined by public vote. The competition will run for the next 2-3 months, and any non-Emazing sponsor may challenge a team within that time frame. The “Elite Four” teams may include [ION] ’s newest member Pilgrim, who recently won Socal BOSS as an out-of-stater from New Jersey in May, so get to the lab and start practicing!
