This year 4 schoolboy outscores Aussies at Pokémon champs
BEING one of the world's best Pokémon players has made a Toowoomba boy a celebrity at school.
Will Reimann is preparing to return to his school just outside of Toowoomba having come 14th at the Pokémon World Championships in San Francisco.
The year 4 student is a whiz at mathematics which helped him outscore his opponents in the strategic computer game.
Ramsay State School principal Cathy Lavelle said he was now a celebrity in the schoolyard.
Students at the small school have been following his success on the world stage.
Will plays the game on a Nintendo DS to battle against his opponents.
He scored 6 points from 5 games in the junior division, outscoring his compatriots.
Will told the ABC before leaving Australia that he would not share any tips before the battle started.
"It's a big secret," he said.
