Beastcoast Adds Aaron “Cybertron” Zheng to its’ Growing Pokémon Roster


NEW YORK, NEW YORK, February 18th, 2022 —  This is no fake out; Beastcoast is continuing to bulk up their Pokémon roster by signing Aaron “Cybertron” Zheng. Aaron has been playing competitive Pokemon VGC since 2008 when it first started. He’s won 5 Regional Championships, 2 National Championships, and qualified for 8 World Championships with a top 8 finish in 2012, and a top 4 finish in 2013. Outside of his competitive success, Cybertron is a content creator on YouTube making videos that assist people in learning how to play the game. Alongside his content creation he also uses his hyper voice to commentate for the Pokemon Company International at major events like Regionals and Worlds. 

Aaron had this to say: 

"I joined Beastcoast because the team is really enthusiastic about Pokémon which is unique and something I haven’t seen before with other esports organizations. They’ve got a really cool list of creators already signed on to the team including James Baek who is a player I have a lot of respect for. I’m really excited to work with him as well as all the other content creators on the team. My goal with content creation has always been to help more people get into the scene whether it be competitive or casual. I’m mainly excited to have fun making content with people who all really love Pokémon” 

Beastcoast CEO Grant Zinn had this to say:

“I’ve personally been watching Aaron’s Youtube journey since 2014, when he first started uploading with his first series “Battle Spot”. His success as a competitor, content creator, and commentator can’t be matched within the space and we’re beyond excited to welcome him to our team, alongside other Pokemon creators James Baek, Chaotic Meatball, and Celio’s Network. We are laser focused on making Beastcoast Pokemon the best place for Pokemon content, both casual and competitive.”
