    Thursday night I stay up until 3:00 AM testing a deck I was going to play. Five minutes before I go to bed, I decide I'm playing my National's deck, Empoleon/Bronzong. Friday Mourning I wake up at 4:00AM, yes I got on hour of sleep. We wait in line for until 8, and get going. We then go back to the room after we registered, and sleep and laugh about stupid things like legendary pokemon. Grinder starts, I turn in my decklist, then I go to my first round opponent.

    Round 1: Leafeon/Blissy

    I used Empoleon once this game, that was for my last prize on Hydro Impact. I basically went aggro on Bronzong vs a bunch of Poke-Powers and a ton of Coating, I just guess Bronzong was cold. I knock out Leafeon lv X after a two turns and he can't stop anything after words. GG though.

    1-0

    Round 2: Pidgeotto Trainer(GG)

    Yeah, I was a total n00b this game, He has a powered up Gallade and I bring up my Bronzong with energy on it on a warp point. From there, I lose. lol.

    1-1

    Round 3: Infernape/Scizor

    She was just playing for fun, but she had a good game I guess. We went back and forth knocking eachother out, then I got Empoleon and just surf together alot to get a lot of ko's on Infernapes.

    2-1

    Round 4: Empoleon

    He got pretty much nothing against me and I get a good setup against a few Bronzongs. GG

    3-1

    Round 5: GG

    No Gardevoir against me the whole time, I pretty much have this game from hello. It was a sad game actually, he hated it.

    4-1

    Round 6: Water Pokemon Master(Empoleon/Bronzong)

    He gets up in prizes 2-6 I make a marvalous comeback with Dusknoir, and dual splash. He says his attack I draw my card, judge calls time, all this in 5 seconds. Prizes, 2-1. KNockout with Dusknoir. He can't ko me. Surf together. The second best game.

    5-1

    Round 7: GG

    See game 5.

    6-1

    Round 8: GG

    He gets ahead at first, I Bronzong KO a Gardevoir. He doesn't answer quite as soon. But after he KO's the Bronzong he activates prizes by getting ahead 3-5. I Bronzong for a prize, and I have 100 on a Gardevoir and 50 on a Claydol, I KO a Gardevoir. He passes. I KO the 2 30 left with dual splash, 1-2 me. Time was called. I send up phione against his gallade and he ko's it. My turn. I lose all but 1 of my hand, and Cosmic Power for the DRE. I get it,urf together, KNOCK OUT! Jorel comes and picks me up because I'm in a 7-1.

    I don't have much to say about Worlds, I pretty much lose at life 1-4 drop. My deck went all draw/pass on me. At least I made it.

    great to meet you! i'm glad I get to meet new people, not a lot of people know who I am. Just following Kettler and Jorel around, you meet people. You guys totally owned my inconsistant spread deck. I forgot claydol of all things.

    Congratulations Robert, but you are regrettably not a rogue master.

    Good job trainer. BTW - what does the Japan National Champion card do, and is it legal?

    It is legal in Japan, I think, we couldn't find anything about it that said no play.

    You pick up your face down prizes(only face down, Gallade prizes don't count).
    Choose a pokemon you find there.
    Don't discard this card, make it a face up prize card.
