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.
