Congratulations Eli!

The Fincastle Pokemon Gym had an exciting and very busy weekend with both the Dark Explorers pre-release and league on Sunday.  Saturday’s pre-release saw several trainers pull some nice EX’s and take home door prizes including extra packs, theme decks and deck boxes.  On Sunday, we got right back into league action and gym challenges.  In Gym Leader Joel’s absence, Gym Leader Marthe stepped in to field a challenge for the grass badge.  What happens when another Gym Leader steps in to try to run a rather complicated grass deck?  I think the song says, “Yeah, Toast!”

Eli T came at the Gym Leader with a hard-hitting fire deck, which is usually no match at all.  However, the Gym deck usually slows down big hitters with special conditions.  That was not the case on Sunday as Eli was not about to be slowed down.  We could not track it down (if it has ever happened…once maybe against the fighting deck), but Eli’s victory was the first sweep of a Gym Leader in quite a while, as he won the Grass type badge in straight games.  There is not much left to say when you take a beating like that.  Excellent job, Eli!  The badge is his first at the Gym.  Eli becomes the 12th trainer to earn a Gym badge and the 6th to earn the Grass badge.  Welcome to “The Wall”!
