students' union awards
A fun society run for Pokémon fans. Whether you're a competitive battler, a shiny hunter, or a casual enjoyer of the Pokémon world, all are welcome to join our family and share in the love of the franchise! We engange in all aspects of the Pokémon franchise, including the main series games (MSG), Pokémon GO, Pokémon Showdown, the anime and more!
Every Monday we meet up for a society activity. In the past we have done quizzes, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet battles, Pokémon Showdown random battles, movie nights, casual gaming hangouts, trading card tournaments and more. Ocassionally we'll venture off campus for events such as bowling night, drinking socials and anime or gaming conventions (typically as a crossover with Anime Society).
Additionally, on Wednesdays we engage in Pokémon GO Raid Hours. This involves meeting up as a group and walking from gym to gym, battling and catching Legendary Pokémon. If you're lucky, you might encounter a shiny! Afterwards we'll typically continue to hang out with drinks and food.
All of our meetup announcements are posted in our Discord server. This server is also used for general chatting, arranging trades, and showing off your shinies or other cool catches! During events such as Pokémon GO Community Day or GO Tours, the Discord server has been integral in arranging meetups for Raid Battles or group walks. Further online only activities have also taken place in the Discord server! Right now, we're currently working on ranking every single Pokémon in a collaborative tier list, with votes being placed within the server.

We look forward to welcoming as many Pokémon Trainers to our society as we can!
