The Cardigan is Done (And Onward we Run)

A Glorious Pokémon Failure

Hello, crafty and sundry! I’ve had my head down most of the weekend trying to make a decent showing in the Pok√©mon International Challenge. Suffices to say, I’m 99.9% sure that I will not be competing past this initial stage. Out of the 28 battles I completed, I won six. That’s about a fifth of …
