So, I woke up at 6.40 AM, ate something and left for the bus, which left 7.25.

I rode the bus to Karjaa, where I took the train to Helsinki. I finished reading Harry Potter and Philosopher's Stone before I was there, getting the total read time of something like 12 hours

So I arrived in Helsinki around 9.25.

Anyway, I went to check out a certain manga/anime-store... Only to find out that it wouldn't open in 30 minutes. I did not have that time, though, so I went back to the railway station and took a local train to Valimo (=Mint), where teh 1337 Nintendo of Finland is.

As I waited for the others (like the finalists) to arrive, I played my Gold and raised a Snorlax for breeding for Little Cup. I got it to level 21. Could have got it to level 22, but I didn't want to, because then it would have learned Belly Drum and I couldn't have traded it to R/B/Y and and and

Anyway, then the finalists came, and I went to welcome them. We went back to the conference room where I had been and ate something. Free coke and potato chips and buns, anyone? )

They then went to check the NoF around, while I arranged some stuff (like GameCube) with Tony. When they came back, we played some Cube and had some more fun.

Then it was time to leave for Itäkeskus (Eastcentre ) where the finals were going to be held. So we got into a bus and left.

When we came back, we began arranging our stuff. The finalists went to eat into a McDonald's.

And we got our television. 58 inches. Quite big. Anyway... I didn't like it. I said that a video cannon would have been better. Well, soon you can see if it had been so.

I tested the television with playing a bit of Run, Rattata, Run with Tony, and then the finalists came back. We were ready to go. There were 10 finalists, as I have told. 6 of them were from Pokéopisto, my page And how many of them got past the first round?

4. What was more surprising, was that the guy who I had proclaimed to be second or even t3h m4st3r (Igglybuff here at Azure), was defeated in the first round. He said that it was because of the TV and he couldn't see where Substitute on his Alakazam was. Well, it was true that the TV was fucking bad. It was a wide screen TV, but it jumped back and forth between the wide screen -format and the normal format. When in wide screen -format, it was fine. But in the normal format... It chopped the upper and lower edges of the screen off. Anyway, he should have been able to remember the move list. But the TV sucked, and we're probably going to get a video cannon for the next year.

So there they were, the 5 guys, and one of them would become the Ian Garvey of Finland:

Tomi Sjöblom (Master of the Helsinki region... This guy also beat me.)
Antti Myyrä (Master of the GameWorld -expo)
Mikko Ollanketo (Master of the Espoo region... Who I beat :B)
Hannu Pekka Karjalainen (Master of the Oulu region, who I couldn't have a match against, because I wasn't there)
Joonas... Something. I don't remember him...

Anyway. Because everybody played against everybody, I won't post ALL of the matches here. I just don't feel like writing 30 or so matches. But I will post the most interesting ones and all the semifinals. And of course, the final match.

So let us begin.

The second (Mikko) got a GBA and 2 games and a smaller trophy.
The third (Harry Pott... No, I meant Hannu Pekka) got a GBA, one game and an even smaller trophy

And everybody got diplomas.

After the finals, Tomi, Antti and their cheerleaders went to eat something to a Carrol's, and I went back to NoF to arrange my wages It was over fast, and then I went to the railway station. I still had a good 2 hours before my train was going to leave, so I went to Tomi, Antti and the bit...
ladies to the Carrols. Then we went to Safe Haven, a trading card game shop.

I dug the uncommon/common -boxes for a Sabrina's Psyduck, Team Rocket's
Hideout, a Balloon Berry and something else. I also bought three Neo Revelation -boosters, and it went like this:

From the 1st booster, I got a Skarmory and wasn't too happy, because I had
that Skarmory already, and it isn't a very good card.

From the 2nd booster, I got a Raichu. Now I was getting frustrated. I mean,
I also had this Raichu. I thought that the 3rd booster should at least have
a holo in it.

And then the 3rd booster. I opened it. Card, card, card, card *some seconds*
"Hmm, now the rare should appear... Yes, it is a holofo - OMG OMG WTF WTF SHINING GYARADOS!!" w00tage!!!

Anyway... Let's everybody say it, I know you want to!


And this ends my reportage.
