Day 3 – The dry desert

Today as I explored the Unova region I was somewhere in the desert. Lots of sandstorms here so most of my Pokemon get hurt by them. The desert is pretty big and doesn’t have much in it other than some ruins and a lot of trainers to battle.

Desert Nurse

Can you heal me?

As I was battling wild Pokemon and also trainers my Pokemon were fainting quite fast. Luckily there is a nurse at the front of the desert who will heal your Pokemon. I finally decided to go to the ruins and see what I could find is there. There was not much other than some trainers and some annoying Pokemon. After doing all of this I finally decided to stop while I was inside the ruins.

Day 2 – My first Trubbish

MeowDay 2

Dear diary, today as I explored the Unova region I again found some wonderful Pokémon on Route 5. One particular Pokémon caught my eye, Trubbish. After defeating this pokemon I also defeated a Liepard. After a few more battles I decided to end my adventure on route 5.

Day 1 – Route 4

Patrats are masters at TackleDay 1

Dear diary, today I was exploring Route 4 of the Unova region and stumbled upon a very rare pokemon called Patrat. It was a challenge to defeat it. They are very strong and very good at using tackle. True pros. Along with Patrats I found a Riolu. I thought about catching it and came to the conclusion that I should. It looked lonely. After all this excitement I had to stop playing. It was enough for one day so I ended my day on route 4.

Kissimmee Battle Road

The night before the tournament we were attempting to find the cards that we needed for our decks

Okay so going to the tournament we had to meet at the same gas station we always do when we take our friends with us. So we get there and then we get them and we leave for the tournament in Kissimmee. On the way there I reach into my bag to get out the sleeves I brought with me so I could resleeve. I open them and realize that I had used the sleeves before. So I had to buy some at the card shop it was being held in.
I turned in my decklist and then sit down and resleeve. Since we didn’t have the cards for my dad’s deck we had to ask around and finally got them. So he could play after all. Continue reading

Finally!! My Worlds Report

Okay as you know the only reason that I got to this tournament is because you guys helped me out. Otherwise I would not have made it so thanks a million. Really I just can not thank everyone enough!

HI Lava

Hawaii is not as green as you think, at least Kona is not.

So we got up that morning and left to go to the hotel for the tournament really early. The road was pretty straight and it took us about an hour to get to the Hilton Resort. Once we got there I did early registration and since we were about an hour and a half early we found some of our friends and started talking to them.

Then the opening ceremonies started and we went into the main room. The video that they showed was so loud that it made the room rumble and many people cover their ears. So after that the rosters were up and then the pairings. So here is what it was like: Continue reading

Going!

I would like to thank everybody for their generosity and for sponsoring me. Right now I am at the airport waiting for my flight. Without everybodys help I would not have made it to Hawaii.

I did not want to do it this way but it worked so… I will be writing updates on how I’m doing at the tournament also.

It doesn’t really matter if I win or lose I got there but I don’t know how I’ll do but at least keep the spirit of the game. 

I would like to thank my brother Tristan for his sacrafice and without it I wouldn’t have been able to make it.

Lastly I would like to thank Tampa International Airport (TIA) for being so nice and actually having free WiFi unlike the other airports we will be going to. 

Thanks everybody!

Another Day

Really sorry for not posting I’ve been a little behind on my schoolwork because I started early. So I’m about halfway to the goal which is pretty cool but still need that other half.

The other day I had to get a physical for scout camp and the person who did it found that I had an irregular heartbeat. So on Tuesday I had to go to a cardiologist and I had to wear a heart monitor for 24 hours and gave it back to them yesterday.

Having that thing on was so itchy because they taped it to me and I couldn’t take a shower or anything.

Anyway sorry about that.

Finally Getting Somewhere

Sorry for not posting anything this week. Been a little bit busy lately sending out hundreds and hundreds of emails this week.

Not really a whole lot of fun but whatever works. This morning I checked the site and found that I had gotten a lot more money and was extremely surprised to find I had gotten so much. I guess that all those emails paid off after all.

If I don’t make enough money this coming up week then I can’t go. But at this rate I might make it. Really appreciate the people who have helped me out so far. Thanks!

Fail Blog

Yeah sorry for not posting this week but I’ve sent out so many emails and stuff that I’ve been too busy to write anything. I have sent out hundreds Box of Failof emails and got one reply saying can’t help you.

Really sucks because it took me a long time to send all those out. Also calling places and getting nothing goes along with asking places and getting nothing. I’m going to continue doing stuff even after this years worlds even if I don’t make enough money to get there.

Thanks to all the people who have helped out so far!
