+ - Penny-arcade teaches fair play at Gamestop...

'I noticed one of the kids there was actually quite a bit older than the rest of the group. Still probably half my age, but he towered over his opponents. I watched as he struck up conversations with the other children, inspecting their Pokemon and always finding them lacking. "I've EV trained my entire party." he said to a few of the kids who obviously had no idea what that meant. He showed of his multiple "shinies" to a couple of very impressed young men before explaining that he wasn't going to use them in the tournament because it just wouldn't be fair to everyone else. No, he would dominate them with a mixed bag of EV trained legendaries and obscure all stars culled from every single incarnation of the series. He was essentially being a little Douche.'

Needless to say, Gabe schools the little douche about fair play.

Check out the heart-warming end result: Good to know that lives are being changed over at penny-arcade! (http://www.penny-arcade.com/2007/07/23#news_22211 )"
