Gym Leader Interview

SPLI: The SPLI Pokémon League Elite Four event on March 15th is just about a week away. Competitors are getting ready to face the toughest trainers in SPLI, such as you and your Steel Gym! We noticed that you have very specific rules for your Gym, what made you decide on this?

Tendo: I chose singles so we could duel like knights.  Item clause makes for more interesting predictions and team building.

SPLI: We’ve appeared on panels together, so some of us already know who your favorite Pokemon is on your Steel team. But for those who don’t know, can you please explain?

Tendo:  Aegislash.  I’ve waited ages for a haunted sword Pokemon.

SPLI: Some Gym Leaders like to give a hint to challengers on what they can expect in battle, or how to strategize. Do you have any tips for the challengers that you will face on 3/15?

Tendo: Type advantage is not the only type of advantage…

SPLI: So you’re a member of the SPLI Elite Four, you have appeared on gaming panels… what else would you like to share with us? Do you have any side projects that you’re working on?

Tendo: Well, I’m part of the StreetPass NYC staff.  Also, I made a documentary about waiting outside Nintendo World Store for a game to come out.  You might even see a couple gym leaders…

SPLI: Thanks for giving us some insight about your Steel Team! So SPLI – do you have what it takes to beat Tendo?? Come to the SPLI Pokémon League Elite Four Challenge on 3/15 and battle your way to the top!

If you would like to challenge Tendo and the Steel Gym, you must first have beaten 8 regular Gym Leaders from the SPLI Pokemon League either via WIFI or at our SPLI Pokémon League Elite Four Challenge! Once you have 8 wins against the SPLI Gym Leaders, then all you have to do is wait for the event on 3/15! Until then, you can also scan Tendo’s Secret Base QR code, which has a small preview of his Steel Gym team!
