Man, have four years passed already? I remember reading this by then and thinking how well written and enveloping it was. I really wished to had had been there and, again, I feel to the bone how sucky it is to live one whole continent away. Maybe I should send Nintendo ten thousand emails per day so they hold a regional tournament here so I can win it heh.
Congratulations to everyone at JAA and everyone at VGC. I hope you can meet many, many more times and strenghten those beautiful friendship bonds.
