    Prizes are listed here:

    The difference between the prizes of first and second place isn't very much. The final match is more a battle of pride than money.

    The Nationals and Worlds will have bigger prizes.

    Congrats Diesal!

    I've never gotten much into doubles battles (ok, I've never done one) but it looks to be a lot less about prediction and in-battle, and a lot more about team building (ie. less room to counter his team and more need to focus on making yours work). Cannot imagine how repeat battles must be like :S

    The finals was epic though-- good job

    I read this story like...3 times. It's perfectly written out.
    Good Job Diesel. Which battler were you in the Video?

    Uh I did say the guy with the shiny Spiritomb... but yeah that was more than obvious.

    I would assume the dude in the hat, because the other battler looks like a kid. Or the fuzzy video makes him look like a kid, I dunno.

    Y'know, I'd be a bit more congratulatory of you (you did a good job, by the by) if you hadn't totally and completely owned my best friend Brad in the third round.

    Granted, I'm still a bit bummed that I didn't get to compete (I was #006, and the numbers picked were 001, 002, 003, 004, 005, 007, 008, so I was very bitter), and he's supposed to be a smarter battler than that. He's fought my Trick Room team countless times, and I bred that Kingdra of his for him to be a near-perfect Life Orber.

    Anyway, congrats in Seattle. I'll see you there next year, :P

    Diesel I know the Danial or Danni in person and he says it was a very good match. Just thought i would let you know. You are an excellent writer and very nice team.

    Congrats on getting a free trip to St. Louis, and how were the nationals?

    Hopefully I will be able to come next year and i hope to meet you.
    Anyway Nice battling by the video

    Had I made it in the tournament I would have loved to battle you in st. louis. I was in the phoenix tournament but the lotto-based system of evil didn't select me. TT^TT
