Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, I picked up Pokemon Go right on release in 2016, and after a brief hiatus from the game in 2017, I picked it back up fully in 2018 and never looked back, particularly when PvP dropped as a feature at the end of 2018. My goals for the game have henceforth been aligned with being the best battler I can be within the game, and being as knowledgeable about the competitive aspect of battling as I can possibly be. I turned to the world of content creation during the quarantine of 2020 as I had been experiencing a lot of success with the game's matchmaking feature "Go Battle League" and I wanted to showcase my skillset to the community not only as a source of personal growth but also as a place where people can learn about the ins and outs of Pokemon Go PvP
When the quarantine started during my senior year of college, I took up Pokémon GO PvP as a hobby. After rising through the ranks and winning many tournaments, I combined my PvP skills with my talents as a sports commentator through my YouTube and Twitch channels! When I'm not playing Pokémon GO you'll find me working as an Esports Caster, playing basketball, or shooting pool with friends. My goals are to be one of the best Pokémon GO PvP players, while growing as a content creator and broadcaster!
I am from Boston, MA, and started playing Pokemon Go at the release and when PvP first came out I was very excited. Since the release of PvP my playstyle completely changed and I have been focusing almost all of my play time on PvP. I've played in every Silph Arena Cup since the beginning and was the North American Continentals runner-up in Season 2. In Go Battle League, I reached rank 10 in each of the first 5 Seasons and in Season 6, became the first ever Legend rank in the world. PvP has also allowed me to attend mega tournaments where I have met so many amazing people in the community which I would love to continue to do. Outside of Pokemon Go you will find me watching sports with my friends and researching the weather as I have a Bachelor's degree in Meteorology. My goals are to continue to help grow the competitive scene and grow as a competitive player.
Math Professor and longtime Pokemon Trainer. Since the release of Player versus Player (pvp), I have devoted much of my time learning, studying, and analyzing gameplay. Because of my love for teaching, I decided to become a PvP coach and stream my content on Twitch! Outside of Pokemon, you can find me studying complex social phenomena and how I can use math to model social behavior.

TzSpenx is a Mexican Pokemon GO PvP enthusiast and coach. He picked up the game as soon as it was released, but it wasn't until PvP was introduced that he started to show a lot of interest in it. He then started participating in tournaments by The Silph Road, Pokemon GO's online battling community, and reached Ace in Season 1 — at that time, the highest rank in Silph — and Elite in Season 2, a much higher rank than before. In GO Battle League, Pokemon GO's in-app battling system, Spenx has been able to reach Rank 10 or Legend (the highest rank) every season. After taking a break from The Silph Road's competitions, he began to understand that his passion was in sharing all his experience and knowledge with everyone to help build a better and stronger community. With this, he decided to start coaching trainers professionally.
