Update on Challenges at the Gym.

The Fincastle Gym Leaders have been quietly racking up gym challenges over the last few weeks.  The last badge won was the fighting-type badge by Angela Y.  Since then, the Gym Leaders have won 7 straight.  During Sunday’s meeting, the steel-type leader, Joel, had a close call, going to a 3rd game before defeating Hunter, who caught the Gym Leader off guard with a very clever move to win game 2.  We have not updated challenge stats for a while, so here is where the Gym stands, including individual leader stats and an up-to-date list of those who have successfully taken home a gym badge.

We have completed 123 challenges to date and the overall Gym Leader record now stands at 108 wins and 15 loses.  We are moving very quickly towards completing 200 challenges at the Gym.  The Gym awarded Chris L a pretty special prize when he completed the 100th challenge (a HGSS binder with a copy of every league promo we’ve had so far).  I guess when we reach #200, we’ll just have to try to make the prize twice as nice.

While all the types are now currently lead by a single person now, they have changed hands several times over the Gym’s existence.  The darkness-type leader, Logan, took over duties from the original leader, Joel.  The fire-type badge started without a leader as Joel and Logan shared duties up until the fire tournament, when Austin claimed his rightful spot as the fire Gym Leader.  Here are the stats by type:

  • Water – 11-0
  • Grass – 19-3
  • Fighting – 14-1
  • Steel – 7-3
  • Darkness – 11-0
  • Fire – 13-2
  • Lightning – 13-3
  • Psychic – 20-3

As some leaders hold multiple type duties and have changed in the past, here is a break down by leader:

  • Gym Leader Austin – 8-1 (88.8%)
  • Gym Leader Joel – 49-7 (87.5%)
  • Gym Leader Logan – 18-1 (94.7%)
  • Gym Leader Marthe – 33-6 (84.6%)

And here are those who have battled their way into the halls of Fincastle Gym glory and the badges they’ve won:

  • Austin W – Steel, Grass
  • Tyler D – Electric, Steel, Grass
  • Chris L – Electric, Fire
  • James H – Psychic, Steel
  • Tessa Y – Fire, Psychic, Grass
  • Angela Y – Electric, Fighting
  • Dustin  F – Psychic

Well, there they are.  The numbers don’t mean anything in particular, we just find it interesting to go back and look at from time to time.  We hope that some of your do too (any fantasy football players out there that love numbers?).  If that that’s the case, you might want to draft Logan and Austin first!  Anyway, keep playing those games and sign up for those challenges.  Once you’re on the list, find that Gym Leader and let him/her know you’re ready.  See you at the Gym!
