Ventuski comes from Santiago, the capital city of Chile, at the end of the world. Altought he went to med school, he found most joy in videogames, particularly in those where competitive takes place. It's Pokemon GO where he found success, becoming the first back-to-back Silph Worlds Finalist and Silph LATAM Continental Champion in Season 2 and 3. His hope is to bring the best level of gameplay to the Mazer squad, to help his teammates in whatever he can, to learn from them as the top battlers they are, and to raise Mazer's name to the top of the competitive scene.
MrDoctorpants started playing Pokemon GO on release in the summer of 2016. As many players did, he took a break shortly after as the game at the time didn’t have as many things to offer. Several years later, with the announcement of PvP, MrDoctorpants jumped right back into the game with a new goal in mind. Having grown up playing a variety of games and sports, MrDoctorpants always enjoyed competition, and Pokemon GO PvP was no exception. After going 1-3 in his first tournament, he learned that his one win was against the most prominent player in the community. This inspired him to continue learning about the game and eventually travel around to claim first place at almost every large local PvP scene in the state. When the pandemic hit, MrDoctorpants got a chance to move to online tournaments and play against players across the world. Continuing to climb through the ranks, he hit his personal best record at rank 73 on the silph global records and rank 19 in the US. After a brief hiatus from competitive PvP, MrDoctorpants has jumped back into the scene by joining Mazer’s Academy Team, aiming to return to top level play.

CaptCuad has been a devoted fan of Pokémon GO since the game first went live back in 2016. Although the first two years of the game’s life cycle would pass by pretty uneventfully for CaptCuad (with him using it mainly as a means to alleviate boredom while attending college), his competitive side would truly begin to manifest with the addition of PVP in 2018. When asked about what he wants to accomplish during his time with Mazer, CaptCuad had this to say, “With Mazer, I look to provide further shoutcasting, support the Academy team through team building, coaching, scrimming, and bringing my all in my competitive sets.”

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.

Sean has been a huge fan of the Pokemon franchise since he could barely walk, with his first game ever being Pokemon Blue Version for the Gameboy Color. Sean’s love of Pokemon would stick with him all his life, but as he started to get older, he began to branch out into other video game genres, including first person shooters where he would become very competitive in titles like Call of Duty. While Sean may have enjoyed first person shooters, his wife wasn’t exactly the biggest fan of them. So, when Pokemon GO first released in 2016, not only was it a chance for him to reconnect with his childhood, it was a way for him and his wife to game together in holy virtual matrimony. The pair played the game often, even during strolls with their daughter. Though they would end up temporarily taking a hiatus from the game after six months, they would pick it up again after their son was born two years later. Funnily enough, Sean didn’t discover Pokemon GO’s PVP (player versus player) mode until the Go Battle League was created. The mode left a huge impression on him, and he would immediately begin to start grinding, reaching rank 9 by season three. In every subsequent season since, Sean has been able to reach the highest ranking.
While a Pokémon trainer’s journey is often a solo experience, for Eepicoolguy, it’s a journey for the whole family. For starters, while Pokémon GO may be his first Pokémon game ever, his fiancé, in his own words is a, “Pokémon God,” who has been a fan of the franchise since the original Gameboy Color games. He also credits his son for creating his gamer tag in the first place after the two of them bonded over watching the original 1990’s T.V. show. When asked about what he wants to accomplish during his time at Mazer, Eepicoolguy had this to say, “I want to keep improving with PvP. I have created a little of a relationship with SeanofBillings, and he has been coaching me a little. I watch a ton of PvP on YouTube and Twitch and would love to make it to a regional tournament some day. I love Reis, Speedy, and Panic and can’t believe that I am actually on Mazer and following in their footsteps.”
