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!

If you would like to challenge Derrick, please visit the Normal Gym page and fill out the challenge form!

Badge Prototypes!

Now that the demos for Pokémon Omega Ruby Alpha Sapphire are becoming available, everyone is getting excited for the newest Pokémon games! SPLI wants to share that excitement with you all by releasing a teaser photo of some badge prototypes that we’ve been working on for the SPLI Pokémon League!

Please note that these badges are not currently in full production, and are not available to SPLI Pokémon League participants just yet. But we are planning some meetup events for the coming months that will allow Pokémon trainers to challenge the SPLI Pokémon League Gym Leaders and collect awesome badges like these!

Don’t forget that while we wait for all the details of these upcoming League Events, you can still challenge the SPLI Pokémon League Gym Leaders on WIFI right now! Send your challenge requests out and you can battle each gym type and see how you match up against some strong NY-area trainers! Visit the SPLI Pokémon League page for more information on how to challenge us. You’ll need at least eight Gym Badges (virtual or real) to challenge the SPLI Elite Four, so get ready for some fierce battling!

300x300logoSPLI is proud to announce the debut of our new SPLI Pokémon League! We’ve brought together a variety of trainers from the Long Island/NYC area who will be our SPLI Gym Leaders for the first season of the League, and now it’s time for YOU to challenge them! Every Gym Leader has a mono-type team, and if you can beat 8 Gym Leaders and win their badges then you have earned the right to take on the SPLI Elite Four!

The Elite Four will be available to challenge at special SPLI Events, and whoever can beat all 4 will be crowned the SPLI Champion!

Do you have what it takes to be the very best? Take on our Pokémon League and see if you can beat our Gym Leaders! To get started, visit the SPLI Pokémon League page and be sure to read the rules.
