Gym Leader Interview

SPLI: Thanks for taking the time to answer a few questions about your Gym! First of all, we were wondering why you chose the Normal Type for your Gym?

Derrick: I feel Normal Types are the underdogs of the world.

SPLI: Your Gym uses Flat Rules and Singles Format. What made you decide to use these rules?

Derrick: Nothing beats 6 v 6. I think there aren’t too many rooms for tricks, and a lengthy set up can be your downfall.

SPLI: We know it’s hard to choose one, but which Pokémon on your team is your favorite?

Derrick: Stoutland!!! I think he is one of the most underrated Normal Type there is!

SPLI: Many SPLI members are enjoying Pokémon OR/AS these days, but some are still playing Pokémon X/Y. Which Pokémon game for the Nintendo 3DS do you prefer?

Derrick: I am mainly playing on ORAS because of the new VGC rules, but I am going to have to say X/Y for the mere fact of character customization. I felt unique going into battle.

SPLI: Thank you for taking the time to speak with us! We wish you luck with your future Normal Gym challenges!
