Pokémon Championship Team Hurls Crap At Each Other

image

Yes, that headline is entirely literal.

A Spanish Pokémon championship team was booted out of a UK hotel after they decided to start hurling handfuls of their own excrement at each other.

The team was attending the Pokémon Video Game Championships in Birmingham. While a number of witnesses have confirmed that they witnessed the impromptu game of chodeball, the most detailed account comes from Pokémon World forum user, PokéChamp21:

After 30-40min in my room relaxing with a quick snooze I awoke to the sound of banging coming from down the hall from where the 'Spanish Team' were staying in. It seems that at some point after they had turned up and when we went to Wether Spoons [J.D Wetherspoon. A popular UK pub chain] the Spniards[sic] had decided to have a 'Poo' fight in the corridor and this had upset the staff and several guests (naturally) at the hotel enough to call the Police and have them leave.

While you might be quick to criticize the Spanish team (or make an obligatory "Spanish inquisition" joke), remember this event took place in a hotel in Birmingham. In 2010, Birmingham was voted the most-boring, and second-ugliest city in Europe. Having visited the city myself during my adventurous youth, I can confirm that spending the evening hurling your own faeces at a friend is a more stimulating, and possibly more hygienic, alternative to visiting any of the city's bars.

Birmingham isn't *that* bad, you haven't seen Coventry.

I'm going there for a Doctor Who convention in June.
Oh dear.

I can confirm that Birmingham has nothing of value in it.

In all seriousness, what a load o' filthmongers. D:

Why do we keep sending tourists there? Honestly, its as if the English don't want others holidaying here... oh wait...

Wow...just...wow. I suppose it was inevitable, you spend long enough obsessing over Pokemon you're bound to one day just snap and start hurling poo at people.

Grey Carter:

Yes, that headline is entirely literal.

Wat.

That's distressing.

And this is hilarious.

Thanks for continuing to send us odd and entertaining news. Keep it up Grey Carter!

I laughed so hard at the first paragraph, and then the rest of the article that i think i just coughed up my lungs.

I thought Pokémon champions only threw Pokéballs at each ohter.

Now be fair to Birmingham it does provide much of the country with quite alot of amusement when they mock there accent.

What sort of nerd fight do we have our hands on now?

Grey Carter:

Yes, that headline is entirely literal.

...

This is a real thing that really happened then? I mean, I just can't follow the logic on this one, at all. At what point does someone suggest throwing crap around as an activity, and at what point does everyone on the team agree that this is a good idea?

They had better have been searched for drugs, and honestly, I'm hoping they find some, because if boredom is really all it took to start this I have no words.

This story was very informative, but it completely failed to address the most important question of all: What did Team Spanish EAT before this?

I mean, I need to know what kind of poo we're dealing with here. Did they have lots of fiber? Maybe Mexican? Or corn?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Sorry, I can't process this story.

I need to wrap my head around national Pokemon teams first.

Birmingham may be ugly, but they ain't taking crap from anybody.

I can only imagine that they were trying to recreate the safari park from the games, and I can see I'm not the only one who saw the trainer throwing poo upon choosing the mud option.

Wow just wow, never knew boredom can make people do things this far.
But then again this is Birmingham.

Ive got to wonder, what kind of stress did they need to be under to start flinging shit at each other? Apart from being stuck in Birmingham for a few days, there has to be something else.

I guess shit hit the fan.

No..? Uhh...

Shit just got serious.

Still no? Eh, well. At least I've killed a couple of quotes already. No need to keep running into those as I scroll all the way down.

Anyway, I'm just surprised there's a Pokemon championship and national teams and all. I'm wondering if it's the same as a Chess tournament, where everyone is all quiet watching the contestants do stupid stuff back and forth.

I don't blaming for flinging poop at each other. I'd be losing my mind too. Except I'm also wondering how they collected said poop. Did they poop, grab and fling? Or did they went in a baggie and then proceeded to redecorate the hotel? Was it their own?
And did they get disqualified from the tournament? It doesn't say anything about them being disqualified.

These very disgusting questions need an answer.

(Kudos for having the Mankey picture in there. Flinging poop? Like monkeys? Like Mankey? Eh? Eh...?

Not true, it has the greatest comic book store I've ever had the pleasure of visiting.

You are the first person to make me curious as to the consistency of shit.

well done.

Versuvius:

Are we talking the Euro one, or the one in American Alabama. Cause from what I've heard, their both crap in equal ways.

Also, "poop" is a tag? WTF?

I go to University in Birmingham. I fear I am developing the accent:(

Where on earth did they procure enough feces? Why? What if one of them had diarrhea?

Grey Carter:
and second-ugliest city in Europe.

Have to ask...What was the first?

Hull?

PurpleLeafRave:

Oh dear.

Well, now you know what to do when you're bored there. Just make sure to eat the right food for the proper consistency. It won't be easy to throw it if it's too liquid.

I have a serious question. At what point does someone actually suggest or even think of throwing feces at another person outside of a mental institution?

And this is my final piece of evidence that we are related to the other primates.

In your face, creationists :P

Really? Nobody's brought this up yet?

I guess I'll just leave this here then...

Kwil:

Oh they exist. Just like Magic the Gathering tournaments and MLG and such.

Beautiful End:
I guess shit hit the fan.

No..? Uhh...

Shit just got serious.

Shit's getting real!

OT: Wow, who we could still act like our distant cousins. Sad thing is they went there as a representative of both Pokemon and Spain and acting like monkeys is not the best way to promote yourself. This would forever be a stain on the Pokemon Championship for a loooong time.

When I saw the thumbnail image of the Mankey with the headline I originally thought that the Championship team would be using crap pokemon against each other...

Although, that image is also appropriate for the actual story. We all know what monkeys like to do...

Spanish Team used Mud Bomb

Hotel Management used Roar

Spanish Team fled

LtFerret:

And thank you for making me laugh LtFerret, you've earned yourself a internet AND a cookie for that post.

OT: God... I just can't wrap my head around this story. How in the name of the Golden Throne do you get this bored that you actually think that flinging your own waste at one another is a fun idea?

They called in Gwen Stefani for an analysis, and she gave an official statement.

"This shit is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S."

"We were only having a casual poo fight, didn't expect the Spanish Inquisition!"

Seraj:

To be fair to Coventry, it did get completely flattened in WW2, it has an excuse :P Being mean about Coventry is like bullying a low kid, they can't help it :P

OT: When in Birmingham, do as the Brummies do.

EDIT: Wtf Spain, seriously?

Birmingham is a dreadful place, thats for sure. Im still at a loss though as to how much poo they must have had to produce in order to turn the event into a fight (as oppposed to say just one drunk dude flinging a one off brown bomber at his friend).

Crazy pokemon trainers. Nintendo should put them into the next game as one of the generic NPCs: Poo-Flinger wants to fight!
