DPCA supports Pokemon-themed comics. So it’s only natural that we also support Pokemon-themed OCTs! Looking to join an OCT, or do you wish to spectate? Check out the following list:
Open for audition, or upcoming OCTs:
Pokemon-League A group that takes rolling submissions filled with tons of tournaments and free battles.
GlobalBattleUnion Is a special group for IPL members, which hosts PCBC-like OCTs. This event is only open for members of IPL, so be sure to sign up there first (see group listed above this one).
US-Pokemon-League A relatively new group that focuses on the creation of gym leaders instead of trainers
NZ-Pokemon-League The same as above but aimed towards individuals from New Zealand
Poke-Rivals An open-minded OCT with various battle styles to choose from, and various other events to participate in.
Pokemon-Game-Over Is accepting entries in comic form, and it's open for auditions.
END-RUN--Pokemon-OCT An upcoming war-themed OCT.
PCBC Probably the biggest Pokemon OCT community on DeviantART. PCBC3 has now kicked off. Admins say this will be the last PCBC ever, so keep that in mind!
bigskycarnival A plot-driven OCT, with what looks to be a varied set-up (battles, contests, etc.).
STABoct Is the sequel to PCBCOS!
Pokemon-UBF (Previously Pkmn-Battle-Frontier) A League-type group, the Battle Frontier also accepts entries submitted in comic format.
Battle-Frontier A large OCT group that also accepts entries in comic form.
PKMN-Grand-Festival A Pokemon contest-themed OCT.
PokemonSuperContests PSC's Black Tourney is over and the group has returned to its regular league activities. These are still worthwhile, however. Rumors about a possible BT 2.0 have been refuted by PSC's hosts: pokemonsupercontests.deviantar…
In short, there will not be another BT, but there will be a sequel OCT sometime in 2011. As always, we will keep you posted.
Poke-fanclub In the summer of 2010 Poke-fanclub organized the popular PokeVenture event: poke-fanclub.deviantart.com/bl… . It is now over, but it may come back eventually.
PCBCOS The PCBC - off shoot is PCBC’s little brother. Can’t enter the PCBC? Missed the audition deadline? Didn’t make the cut? Try your luck at the PCBC-OS!
