The Hitbox Pokémon Showdown

1v1 first generation Pokémon fights just like in 1996 – this is the Hitbox Pokemon Showdown!

While the whole world is out catching ém all in Pokemon GO, we want to dedicate this Saturday and Sunday, August 27-28th to pure, oldschool 1v1 first generation Pokemon fights at the Hitbox Pokémon Showdown! Pokémon Showdown is a Pokémon battle simulator that lets you play with your own- or randomly generated fully animated teams.

Challenge the Hitbox Team!

This weekend from 12pm – 4pm CST on Saturday and Sunday respectively, we challenge you to challenge us in 1v1 randomly generated first generation Pokémon fights! Our North American Community Manager Dubz will be live at alongside other Hitbox staff members, explaining, playing and commenting on all the matches.

Dare to try? Join the ‘Video Games’ chat over at Pokemon Showdown, challenge us directly and we’ll see you on the Pokemon battlefield this weekend!

Until then, check out Dubz as he is already getting ready to be the very best, like no one ever was! Yeah that was a cheap one. 😄
