Hell / heaven.

This time the place was shopping centre Jumbo in Vantaa.

First, it was hard to find a way to get there. We spent at least 15 minutes trying to figure out how we would get to a shopping centre about 300 meters away, just because of the roads.

Second: When we got there, we thought that everything would be fine. But it wouldn't:

a) We had said that the contest would begin 15:00. Well well, the staff at the centre had made some commercials for advertising, BUT they had put "The contest will start 14:00". Dumb people.

b) Neither persons we were supposed to contact answered their phones.

c) They had promised that they would have a microphone & a speaker system ready for our commentating. Well, the contact persons had been sick for over a week, and had arranged some guy to help us. Yay, he was responsible for the TV commercials in the centre ONLY, and didn't know a thing about the speaker systems.

d) When we were setting our stuff up, some buildermen came there.

One of them: "Hey, what'cha doin'? We're supposed to build this house here!" (There was a little cottage under construction by the stage, where we were supposed to hold the contest on)
We: Err... We're supposed to hold a contest here, and we gave a notice about it to the centre's boss about a month ago..."
Builder guy: "Err, we haven't received anything like that"
We: "Ehhh... Anyway, we're going to have it here, so..."
Builder guy: "Wait a minute, I'll go to check my list."

A little later he comes back: "Ah, there was a incy-wincy marking about that."

Anyway, we don't have speakers. So we send one of our guys to rent some (He had returned the microphone the same morning!). Of course, there was a little traffic jam. So we had two battles without commentating.

But then we got our speaker systems, and after that, everything went well.

There were 3 guys around 15 years of age,and I thought that one of them would win. Eh. They kinda sux0red. Thunder on Zapdos, stuff like that.

Well... One of them was in the semifinals, but got beaten. There were two other peeps, and they were brothers. Guess how old they were? Like 7 and 8 years.

So here are the semis and the finals (And of course, me versus the champion ;)

Antti (This guy was around 15 or so)

KAROLUS TEH LITEL BOY IS TEH BESTEST. And he swept almost everybody with ease.

Both guys get Pokémon Crystals, and Karolus gets the invitation to the National Finals (30th Nov).

Then, it's time for me to speak into the microphone: "Uh... Yeah. Congratulations to the new champion. But like in the other places, I'm going to challenge someone here." *some hands pop up*

"Eh, sorry guys. I'd like to challenge Karolus, the new champion."

So he steps onto the stage again and I get my Game Pak (TM). We insert our carts to Transfer Paks and switch the N64 on.

Event Battle.
Prime Cup.




We choose our pokémon, and we're ready to go.

He opens with Kazam. I open with Kazam.

My Kazam's Speed DV is 14. I'm sure that he'll go second. I choose Sub.

HE GOES FIRST. Psychic. Not much damage taken.
I Sub. He goes "omg omg liek wtf that won't hold i'll just break it"

He Psychics, CH's, Sub broke.
I Thunderwave.

I Sub with Eggy. He changes to Charizard.

I Stun Spore and hit, while he Fire Blasts my Sub away.

I change to Rhydon. He's FP'ed.

He changes to his paralyzed Kazam while I Sub.

Rhydon EQ's Kazam's yellow ass out of this world.

He send out his paralyzed Charizard. Rhydon Rock Slides Charizard's red, burning ass out of this world.

He sends out his last, a Raichu.

Am I the only one here annoyed that Finaland, with a mere 5 million people (no offense) had a championship with at least four regional locations, while the US and Canada, with over 300 million people, doesn't?

Heh :P

And ermmm... We have 10 places, altogether

Of course, it's the thing that our country is so small - easy for travelling.

And of course, it's easier to have an influence on our organizations. I singlehandedly wrote an e-mail to NoF, and they said "Yeah, great idea! Let's arrange a tour like that!"

Maybe you should try that too

PS. None taken
