Scandal: Pokemon team had a poo fight in a hotel

Sometimes, every Christmas that's ever existed merges to form a Super Christmas, and the magic of this time paradox creates a truly wonderful event to happen somewhere in the world. This phenomenon must have recently occurred, because I get to say the following sentence: A Pokémon championship team from Spain was shamed after having a drunken poo fight in a hotel corridor. 

Yep! According to reports, drunk Spanish Pokémon players were throwing their own shit around ... for fun. 

PokéChamp21 provided an eyewitness account, reporting: "I awoke to the sound of banging comming [sic] 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 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."

The report has been corroborated by several other sources at the hotel.

On a lighter note, my brother made it to the third round of the Pokémon Video Game Championships itself. It's kind of sad that I want to buy champagne and celebrate ... not about my brother, but about the fact that poo was thrown in a hotel, and I got to write about it.
