Two-time Pokémon champion Ruben Puig Lecegui was stripped of his his title at the United Kingdom Video Game Championship following a scandal in which he and members of his team are accused of leaving their hotel rooms to take a shit in the hall.


"According to several eyewitness acounts," reports the site Pokébeach, Lecegui and members of his team "placed their own feces in the hallway of the hotel they and other Pokémon players were staying at." Pokébeach says the cops were called, the players were kicked out of the hotel and had to pay fines.


The manager of Play! Pokemon told Pokébeach that "The Pokémon Company International expects its players to maintain high standards of behaviour conducive to the family-friendly environment that we foster." The company investigated the matter independently and took action.

The event's original runner-up now is listed as the champion.
