"Many of our biggest fans descend on Seattle every year to celebrate
video games at PAX West," said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America's Senior
Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "It's the perfect venue for us to
interact directly with our fans with fun activities and engaging
hands-on demos with some of our upcoming games."

On Aug. 31 and Sept. 1, fans that want to be Pokémon Trainers in real
life can participate in a "Trainer Battle" scavenger hunt all around PAX
West and nearby Seattle areas. The @NintendoAmerica
Twitter account will tweet clues and/or photos of different locations
where there will be two Nintendo street team members dressed as Pokémon
Trainers, who fans can "battle" to receive a special item by answering a
trivia question. The Pikachu and Eevee costume characters will also make
a special appearance at the downtown Sheraton Seattle hotel on Saturday,
Sept. 1. More details will be revealed soon.

Nintendo's booth will also be home to a giant mural inspired by Super
Smash Bros. Ultimate
. The massive banner will display all the
announced fighters in the upcoming Nintendo Switch game and is a great
place for fans to snap pictures and share them on social media. Fans who
cosplay as a character from the game can even find their matching
character and take a photo.
