Other Info

Down Under will be a PTU campaign set in the Acantha Region, which is based on Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, and Tasmania. This will be a fairly straightforward campaign focusing on the staples of Pokemon; exploration, personal interaction, and of course battling, gaining badges, and more. Only one thing is slightly different; this campaign takes place in the late 90s, before the full advent of cell phones and broadband internet.

- Know that we'll be updating with each PTU version as it comes out! Otherwise, playing strictly by RAW
- Mystic, Psionic, and Elemental Classes are banned.
