    Why? Pokémon Organised Play was to the point, and made sense. "Play! Pokémon" just seems random.

    At least the logo is better.

    Pointless Name Changes FTW!
    Now instead of having a decent name like Pokemon Organized Play, we now have a confusing name called "Play! Pokemon".
    And the logo looks like a ripoff of every sports league's logo.

    The biggest thing hurting people playing Pokemon is hidden game mechanics and slow pace of battles. Logo looks nice.

    If only Pokemon music were played at these

    Because that's what I think of when I see "Play!" ;[

    Unoriginality.

    I can already see several lawsuits coming.

    The logo is pretty unoriginal too.

    It doesn't look that similar. Yes, it uses a silhouette of a completely different thing. The logo could do without the double border, though.

    That logo would make a cool avatar. I want to change the black to blue though, and make one showing Gold instead with gold and silver colors.

If you are one of the 5% of that population who believes that being able to read kana is not impressive at all, copy and paste this into your sig."

    So, who wants to bet that this has something to do with the secret forum under construction on pokemon.com, that some people from the community have managed to stumble upon by accident?
