Pokemon X&Y Tournament: Prepare yourself for the upcoming official PVGC tournaments by battling your fellow SPLI members! We will be using the official tournament rules set forth by The Pokemon Company: Doubles Standard Format. Please remember that all Pokemon entered in this tournament must be Kalos Native (meaning it must be a Pokemon that was hatched or caught in the Kalos region. You can tell if your Pokemon is Kalos Native if there is a blue pentagon on their Pokemon details screen.) but they can be from the National Pokedex. The winner of the tournament will win a shiny competitive-ready (perfect IV’s, ability, nature, etc.) in-game Pokemon and a perler bead Pokemon prize! As usual, the final round will be broadcast on our big display monitor for everyone to see!
Pokemon X&Y PR Video Contest: Have you created the coolest Pokemon X&Y PR Video for your trainer character? We will be hosting a PR Video Contest and whoever has the best video will win a great prize! Show off your style, video editing, favorite Pokemon, or whatever you want! All videos will be broadcast on our big screen display monitor for all attendees to see, and we will vote by applause to determine the winner.
Pokemon Rumble U Freeplay: Throughout the event, we will be hosting Pokemon Rumble U on the Wii U for SPLI members to play. Bring down your Pokemon NFC figures to trade with other members too! StreetPass Long Island even has some NFC’s to give away during the event, so you won’t want to miss it!
Pokedex 3D Pro Quizzes: For those who want to show off their Pokemon knowledge, we will switch back and forth from Rumble U to Pokedex 3D Pro, and offer prizes for the winners! We have some great prizes thanks to donations from SPLI members.
Pokemon TCG fans are welcome to bring their decks and battle each other! Note: Since SPLI is exclusively a Nintendo video-game based group, we aren’t hosting an official TCG tournament, but Empire Gaming manager Joe has all of the info for upcoming TCG League games! You can also pick up new X&Y TCG packs at Empire Gaming!
Valentine’s Day is coming up on 2/14! But even if you don’t have a Valentine this year… you still “luv” SPLI, don’t you? Show us how much you “luv” us by writing a haiku, a romantic poem, maybe a funny limerick!
Ten winners will be selected, and the prize is a Shiny Luvdisc holding an Ability Capsule for your Pokemon X or Y game!
The contest will be open starting today 2/2/14 and will close on 2/16/14. The winners will be chosen and informed of their prize shortly after the 16th. All winning poems will be featured on the SPLI Fan Page, Group, Twitter and Website!
Now that Pokemon X&Y have been out for a few months and the PVGC in Massachusetts is fast approaching, it’s time for the StreetPass Long Island Pokemon X&Y Meetup! Join us at Empire Gaming in Farmingdale, NY for tournaments, quizzes, giveaways and more!
Happy New Year from StreetPass Long Island! It’s time for the results of the 2013 SPLI AWARDS!
During the month of December, SPLI members filled out a survey to cast their votes for their favorite Nintendo 3DS and Wii U games. Here are the best games of 2013, according to StreetPass Long Island members:
StreetPass Long Island was thrilled by the number of votes received in the Second Annual SPLI AWARDS event. We had more than three times the responses in 2013’s voting phase than in 2012. If you participated by voting in the 2013 SPLI AWARDS, thank you very much for taking the time to give us your insight on the best games of the year. If you’d like to participate in more SPLI surveys in the future, please sign up for our email mailing list!
Nintendo treated their 3DS fans to a really fun National StreetPass Weekend from 12/13 – 12/15! Any 3DS owner who visited their local Nintendo Zone with StreetPass Relay were treated to a shuffle of StreetPass Relay tags, allowing US gamers to get StreetPass tags from other states and even other countries! StreetPass Long Island hosted a local event to celebrate National StreetPass Weekend by organizing members to meet at a local Starbucks in Uniondale, NY on Sunday, 12/15 from 2:30 – 4:30pm!
To make the event even MORE exciting for members, StreetPass Long Island handed out free giveaways: The Legend of Zelda Treasure Chests! These awesome items were provided by Nintendo and GolinHarris (thank you NoA!!) and SPLI members were ecstatic to receive them!
Despite there being a huge snowstorm the day before, StreetPass Long Island members came to Sunday’s meetup in droves and Starbucks was delighted to be overwhelmed with customers. SPLI members gathered to collect StreetPasses (some members received StreetPass tags from the west coast, Europe and even Japan thanks to the StreetPass Relay Shuffle during the event!) and played popular 3DS games together, like Pokemon X&Y and Mario Kart 7.
StreetPass Long Island was happy to welcome some new members and first-time meetup attendees at this event, while also hanging out and having fun with our regular members and SPLI Admin staff. Everyone had a great time, some members even stayed to hang out for almost an hour after the event officially ended! SPLI Co-Founders Jeff and Debbie also used this opportunity to drop some hints about upcoming meetup events planned for 2014. Afterwards they announced that the [Second Annual] 2013 SPLI AWARDS: Voting Phase was about to open to the public, giving fans a chance to vote for their favorite Nintendo games and SPLI Events from the past year.
Every StreetPass Long Island member who attended gave us great feedback and we all hope that Nintendo organizes another National StreetPass event next year! The StreetPass Relay Shuffle added a lot of buzz and excitement to the group and we really enjoyed it! Thank you Nintendo for helping us to end 2013 with a great meetup event!
Zelda fans from across the tri-state area came together to show off their archery skills for the Legend of Zelda-themed Archery Competition, hosted by StreetPass Long Island and StreetPass NYC in Ozone Park, NY on November 17th. Under the guidance of professionally trained archery experts courtesy of Proline Archery Lanes, StreetPass fans learned to shoot a Long Bow and participated in a tournament using Zelda-themed targets!
