Friday Night Fights: Gotta catch em all

Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday everyone!

I wanted to take a few minutes this week and highlight a couple of Dtoid members who have have taken to the Destructoid community full force and started the Official Destructoid Pokemon Community Member Community! Wow, that’s quite the mouthful eh?

Agidyne64 and Oceanicus are both very active Pokemon players and they wanted to share their love of the game with everyone (I believe they also wanted to score some rare Pokemon by trading but that’s a whole ‘nother story altogether). The member base right now stands at over 40 Destructoid community members and keeps growing. If you’re a Pokemon fan who has been looking for others to play with, look no further.

Both Agidyne and Ocanicus have decided to take their love of the game to the next level, at the end of the month, they will be hosting their first official Pokemon X & Y tournament. Now’s your chance, to show the rest of the world (well, the rest of us anyway) how awesome a trainer you are and how mighty your Pokemon have grown!

Thanks again to not only Agiyne64 and Oceanicus for putting this community together, but to all the members who have joined and eventually will join. All of you are the reason why Destructoid has the best community out there!

Now let’s get to the games!

Friday Night Fights

New to FNF? Read this! Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It’s a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!

The planning for FNF starts in the forums, where community members sign up to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up in the community blogs thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers, and I recap it all here on the front page to give it a bit more exposure.

To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! If you’d rather host something yourself, sound off in the comments section below!
