Who are we?

The Mirage Island is a community of competitive Pokémon video game players in Singapore.

Founded on 26 December 2010 as Team Robo Video Games (TRVG) and later re-established as The Mirage Island in Apr 2015, we aim to provide a conducive environment for players to grow and develop their skills in the competitive aspect of Pokémon battling, as well as an avenue for like-minded players to discuss and share Pokémon-related information with each other.

Following Low Wai Yin’s (2013, Masters) and Poh Yu Jie’s (2014, Seniors) entry into the Pokémon World Championships via their respective Last Chance Qualifiers, Singapore (together with the rest of Asia Pacific) was eventually included in the VG Play! Pokémon program in 2015, and our growing community of players has continued to strive for excellence in the competitive scene ever since.

If you are keen to learn more about VGC, or just looking for company to discuss the mechanics of the latest Pokémon games, do join us at our Facebook discussion group!
