      Pokemon Ruby "Blog" Part 1: Boulder Smashing Bugs!~

      So, we were moving into a new town, yet again, and mom stripped me of my pokemon... AGAIN. This time, however, I was in an entirely new region, and was not interested in returning to Johto or Kanto, and was ready to conquer the Hoenn gyms, starting from scratch!

      As usual, the professor of the town couldn't let me leave alone, so after I saved him using a Torchic, he gave me him as a reward. Soon, I left, met his son, and came back, and was given some PokeBalls. Immediately I headed north in search of some local Caterpillars. Luckily, I found a lot! Unfortunately, they all kept becoming a pokemon known as Cascoon... but I wanted a Silcoon! Soon, I finally found one, and I was happy :D

      Soon, after much training, I was friends with a Beautifly named Celest, after my previous Butterfrees, and a Dustox named Spitfire, after my previous Beedrills. After going through the forest, wondering where all the bugs were, I found myself in Rustboro City.

      I left the city to the northeast, and heard the familiar call of a bug pokemon! After a little searching, I found a pokemon named Nincada, and caught it :D As I hadn't had a pokemon like it ever, I named it Shuri, short for Shuriken, as it had a ninja-ey feel to it.

      After 5 horrible defeats at the hands of Roxanne with all my bugs being level 13, I decided it was time for a change. I leveled them to 20, and Shuri evolved! And it... left it's shell in a pokeball. However, it only had 1 HP, so I put it in the PC box.

      I took out Roxanne's Geodude in a single hit! And Celest hit level 20, and learned the ability Morning Sun... just the thing I needed! Then the real battle started...

      I officially hate grinding. Wattson took TWELVE tries... -.-

      Pokemon Ruby "Blog" Part 2: Fighting Fighting with Flying!~

      After my annoying victory over Roxanne, I left the gym, and was met with a scene of a Team Magma Member running away from a guy I met in the forest earlier. Going to investigate, the guy asked me to get back the item that was stolen from him. I pursued, and saw an old man, who said the Magma Member stole his Wingull. I entered, and beat the Team Magma member, he gave me the stolen items, and returned the Wingull.

      I was taken back to the company the man belonged to, and the president gave me a PokeNav, which held a map of the region, as well as a letter for Dewford, and a package for Slateport, and asked me to deliver them. I backtracked through the forest, and eventually found myself at the old man's hut, who offered to give me a ride to Dewford, and then Slateport in exchange for helping his Wingull earlier.

      I ventured into a cave north of the town, and was given the HM for flash from a guy inside. Unfortunately, he informed me in order to use it, I'd need the gym badge from Dewford. So I went back south, and entered the gym, ready to challenge the 2nd gym.

      Pokemon Ruby "Blog" Part 3: The Shocking Truth about Bugs!

      Afterwards, I temporarily caught an Abra to teach Flash to to get through the next cave. :) I met Steven at the end, who gave me the TM for Steel Wing. Personally, I was surprised my Ninjask couldn't learn it, or my other 2 flying bugs :P

      I returned to slateport, deposited Abra into my PC, and talked to Mr. Briney, who gave me a ride to Slateport City. After arriving, I went to find the guy to deliver the package, but he wasn't at the harbor. I went into the museum and found him. Team Magma attacked, but I fought them off.

      I found out there was no gym in slateport, so I had to run up underneath the cycling road, as I didn't have a Bike, and my rival was waiting for me to battle. After a little further.

      I soon reached Mauville City, and was ready for my next gym battle, but I decided to make a few pit stops first. I was given a bike to make my ride easier, and to advertise for the shop. I then went up through Cycling Road, to get some experience, then went back up. I then took a shot at the casino, and gained some TMs I would need later on in the game, as well as a Psychic TM for Spitfire.

      I left Mauville to the west, and caught the 4th member of my team, a Volbeat I named Gloe. I soon encountered an Illumise I caught and named Floe. I taught them the Thunderbolt TMs i had previously gained from the casino. After more training, Gloe and Floe caught up to the others, and I was ready for my gym challenge.

        Summary:

        Well, the 3 gyms I challenged were easy so far, especially Wattson's. Blue (the only pokemon I have, dont use HM Slaves in Gym battles) used Mud Shot thrice to beat him (3 OHKOs). As for Rival May, I thought I was gonna lose, but I beat her easily despite her Grovyle using Absorb all the time. I spammed Mud Slap to reduce accuracy, then Mud Shot to take some more HP and reduce Speed. She went down in no time.

        Now I'm at the Old Lady's Rest Stop on Route 111, on my way to Fallarbor.

        Team:


        Roll - Lv 24
        Tackle
        Defense Curl
        Magnitude
        Rock Throw


        Blue - Lv 31
        Take Down
        Mud Slap
        Mud Shot
        Water Gun


        Vulcan - Lv 15 (freshly caught)
        Growl
        Tackle
        Ember

          Okay, I'm finally back in front of a computer. The holidays were...interesting, I guess. XD So, I've went through the posts since I left and I'd like to congratulate all of those who have finished the 1st and/or 2nd generations in that time. And for those that have joined since the 20th, I'll be adding you to the first post momentarily.

          As for my own progress...I've been playing through Crystal during the holidays.

          I started with Totodile, thinking I'd have to go against Faulkner with him. But alas, I realized I had access to the Ruins, and therefore I caught a little Unown. And I of course stayed in there until I had a G, because that's my favourite, XD. I checked his Hidden Power Type, and realized it was Steel. I trained him a bit, and had to get him to hold a Berry during the match. And my Unown was successful on his first try, much to my surprise. =D

          I then took the trek south towards Azaela Town, picking up a Poison Barb along the way as it happened to be Friday at the time. Unown was surprisingly sturdy, and remained the sole member of my party until I was able to catch a Slowpoke in the cave sharing his name. I trained the two in the Ilex Forest, until both were 14-15ish. Seeing as my Psychic-Types were facing a Scyther with Fury Cutter, I knew this battle would be a challenge. After one loss, I finally figured out my strategy: Slowpoke would Curse to the max against Metapod, and then sweep with Tackle. And it worked! =D

          Arriving in Goldenrod City, I could finally build up my Psychic ranks. The first thing I did was catch an Abra, teach him all three of the elemental punches, and evolve him into Kadabra. I also spent quite awhile in the Ilex Forest looking for an Exeggcute. I nearly gave up, but I decided to try the tree just next to the Officer. And there he was! The next member of my team had to wait until later, as in Crystal, the Drowzee only lurk at night. As for Whitney, she was easy, as I just did Leech Seed+ Hypnosis with Exeggcute.

          After KO'ing Sudowoodo, I talked to Bill in the Ecruteak Pokecentre, then ran back down to Goldenrod to collect my Eevee. I've been giving him massages and berries ever since, so I hope he'll evolve into Espeon soon. As for Morty, I suddenly grew disappointed when I realized Girafarig aren't available in Crystal. You see, that is how I used to defeat his Ghosts in my old Silver Version, heh. But anyway, it was a challenging Gym, and I had to reset a few times. What finally helped me was Exeggcute sending Gengar to sleep, and Leech Seeding his health away. =D

          Finally arriving in Olivine City, I caught myself a Staryu. However, I've yet to use him in battle, mostly because he isn't Psychic-Type until evolution, and I can't get a Water Stone until later. But my Slowpoke could Surf, so he is who took me down to Cianwood City. And as you can guess, my Psychics creamed Chuck and his minions, so I got that badge easily. Similarly, while a little more challenging, I was able to defeat Jasmine thanks to my Kadabra's Fire Punches and Slowpoke's Surfs.

          I then went to the Lake of Rage, defeated the Red Gyarados, had a chat with Lance, and then proceeded to pwn Team Rocket. While I was glad they had a lot of Poison-Types(a la Zubat), the Executives' Dark-Types were a little annoying. Luckily my Kadabra was there to back me up with his punch attacks. And following those darn grunts, I challenged Pryce. Instead of going after his Ice-Types' weaknesses, I pounded their secondary types: Dewgong went down with Thunderpunches, while Piloswine eventually succumb to repeated Surfs from lil' Slowpoke. XD

          And that is where I am now. And since I am once again with a computer, I will update more frequently in the future.

            Thrashing the E-Clair
            Alright, since I said that this is going to be shorter, I meant it:

            Team Rocket began invading Goldenrod city, had a few problems with the Weezings, but overall a decent and long storyline key. It isn't hard to get through here, but it takes too long!
            Then, Ice Path. Ice path's sliding puzzle really had me confused for a while. It took me 7 minutes to get to the other side, along with Golbats and annoying strength puzzles.. Ice Path: I surely will never return!

            Clair can be found on this video here
            http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=nJ19pwtzmew
            Her gym was easy to solve, but the trainers who had Seadras annoyed me to no end.

            I had to decide whether to take the long way to Mt. Mortar or the annoying way to Mt. Mortar. In the end, I took the mountain path (Long way btw.) and took about 4 minutes traversing the vast environments of Johto just to get to a stupid mountain, of which I spent more time searching for Karate King Kihyo.
            The King gave me a Tyrogue after I kicked him in the bollocks, I named him Hidato. Hidato will be my Hitmontop!
            However, when I evolved him into Hitmontop, I put him the daycare to make 2 more eggs; reserved for Hichiro and Hitomi. Now I have 3 pokemon who have Japanese names that I put no research into checking out! Hooray!

            Training the 3 took a good long while, I ended up spending half the time in the Victory Road training them to learn their best moves which are:
            Hitomi: Reversal
            Hidato: Triple Kick
            Hichiro: Erm... nothing.

            So now I'm at the Elite four, I recently destroyed my rival. However he DID take out Hichiro and Hidato, with Muscle almost going down in the process. However, this was only because I wasn't trying.
            I'll blog next time when I beat the Elite Four of Johto and arrive at Kanto on the Luxury Liner S.S. Anne!


            Current Team:


            MUSCLE

              I'm starting to hate this... seriously, did bugs get weaker, or am I imagining things? I've had to grind massively to beat these gyms... but I'm so not in the mood for another grindfest atm haha.

              Pokemon Ruby "Blog" Part 4: Roasted Turtle over a Slug Lit Fire!~

              After defeating Wattson, I was ready to continue on to the 4th gym... who specialized in bug types. Knowing how hard it would be, I backtracked to home and 30 minutes of searching the grass later (Rare is wow... Rare), I found a Surskit! Soon, Flit the Surskit was the 6th member of my team! A bit later, I hit level 22 and he tried to evolve. Unfortunately, I stopped him. I did it 2 more times, until Flit finally learned Bubblebeam, and I let him evolve. I then taught him the TM for Ice Beam I bought earlier. I was ready.

              I set out north of Mauville with a Zigzagoon I caught earlier, and used it to Rock Smash the boulders blocking my way. After realizing Floe was not very useful, I decided to put her in my PC permanently, along with my Shedinja. I really wanted the rare fossil bug as my 6th member! I continued on, and met a guy near a tree, who gave me a TM for a move called Secret Power, which I taught to Gloe.

              The lift was closed by team magma, so I had to go around, through the volcano. Eventually, I found myself in a mountain with a waterfall, and Team Magma ran off to the lift, and the professor was startled. I followed them back to the lift, and fought my way to their leader, and won, taking back the meteor before they could level the world with lava.

              After defeating Maxie, I was able to head south, into Lavaridge town, and to my 4th gym battle!

              Pokemon Ruby "Blog" Part 5: The Bugs Smack Father! :O

              Since the next gym was not far away, I decided hurry back to Petalburg City and finally challenge Dad to a gym fight!

              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vc5BWKRV4iE

              I really didn't want to use Swords Dance hax, but alas, I've had enough grinding, and wanted ONE freakin gym leader to go down easily -.- I seriously wonder if they made bug pokemon weaker... haha.

                After training Pell a bit i reached petalburg city and went to see the house dad and we talked a bit and he had me show this kid named Wally how to catch a Pokémon. When i came back i talked to the hgouse dad and he told me the first gym was in Rustburo city. Then i headed off. As i was heading out of town, this guy in a flowered shirt and sunglasses called me a rookie trainer. Dude i’m the E4 champion of Johto and Kanto pus i beat Red i was ready to tell him off when he just left. Weird dude.
                2 new friends + More training
                Found a Wingull and named him Pell and found a nincada named ninja. Trained them up too.
                Team Aqua
                After leveling up i start to head towards the exit and am stopped by this guy looking for a shrommish. This thug comes up to hell talking about something. The guy i saw first thows me in front of him. I beat down the thug and he runs off the guy thanks me gives me a great ball and runs off.

                I go into the gym with Pell leading and sweep anti climatic, huh? thought it would be hard with the flying type thing.

                Return of the Thug
                As i leave the gym i see the deven guy and he yell at the thug. I know i have to help. I do help. I get to the cave where the thug is at and he has taken a wingull hostage. Pell is pissed now. So i rescue it. I’m thanked and i get a great ball. He takes me to the Devin head quarters and i get another mission and a pokenav.

                  i wouldn't mind doing fire, even though it'll probably bring me to tears...

                      Jolteon

                      Electabuzz

                      any recommendations for movesets are welcomed and desired

                      and who should i give thunderbolt to im thinking jolteon because he doesnt really get any other moves that are that good

                        i beat blue in a few hours. and since i beat the game, i'll just go through the significant battles.

                        Brock
                        Taken out by my charmeleon and ember. rock/ground didn't have very good resistance back in the day i guess. it was sad because this was supposed to be one of the hardest battles and it wasn't

                        Misty
                        Ok, so i skipped her to begin with and went to the S.S. Anne first to evolve charmeleon. then i came back and took out staryu and starmie with one hit each. also supposed to be one of the hardest, but sadly, it wasn't.

                        Surge

                        Still not hard, even though i now i had a a part flying type. he didn't get an attack in. i used slash which has an incredible critical ratio. and by incredible, i mean got a critical hit every time.

                        Erika

                        I have nothing to say about this battle. by this time i had a flareon and a charizard. i believe charizard, if not both of them had flamethrower at the time, so everything got burnt.

                        Koga
                        I actually forgot who i was fighting for this battle. i didn't realize it was a gym leader. charizard had slash and flareon had body slam, and both had flamethrower. koga also got kicked in the face.

                        Sabrina
                        Seeing as how psychic types have bad defences, and my two pokemon had high attacks, this thing was over real quick. i think the only one that didn't get knocked out in one hit was mr. mime, but he still didn't have much hp after that hit.

                        Blaine

                        I had caught a magmar and taught it strength, so that took out his first two pokes, and then brought rapidash down to half hp before getting outted, so then charizard cleaned up.

                        Giovanni
                        This should have been hard. ground vs. fire end with ground winning. but it didn't. this battle was over really fast. the hardest parts were the rhyhorns but they still went down quick. overall, i'm disappointed in the gym leaders from the first generation.

                        The Elite 3
                        I'm grouping them together because i beat them numerous times only to be defeated by lance or my rival/the champion. i took everything down in one or two hits because they were too busy using pointless x-stat enhancements.

                        Lance
                        Gyrados was easy, mostly because flareon used bite and gyrados didn't actually land any attacks for the most part. the dragonairs also went down quick from flareon body slams. aerodactyl was a little harder, but it also didn't use/land many attacks. so even though it resisted my flamethrowers, it went down. dragonite wasn't the hardest at all. 2 slashes from charizard = dead.

                        Champion
                        the first time i got to him, i only had a charizard with roughly half of its hp left. i managed to take down everything until blastoise which got a lucky hydro pump in and killed me. (i refused to use and potions/revives) the next time i got to him, i had revived magmar and flareon, so i took down pidgeot with magmar, and then alakazam, exeggutor, arcanine, and magneton with flareon. blastoise got rid of flareon after i body slammed and paralyzed it, so charizard came in and finished the job.


                        FINAL TEAM:

                        Fire Punch
                        Confuse Ray
                        Strength
                        Smokescreen

                        High - Attack 111
                        Low - Defense 75



                        Flamethrower
                        Fire Blast
                        Bite
                        Body Slam

                        High - Attack 234
                        Low - Defense 121



                        Slash
                        Cut
                        Flamethrower
                        Seismic Toss

                        High - Speed 183
                        Low - Defense 151


                        i'll have better updates for crystal, mostly because i won't beat it in a couple hours
                        :D

                              I've beaten the Elite Four, so while I'm uploading the videos, I'll tell you all about it.

                              Yet Another Perfect Sweep and Annoyance!

                              I think that this perfect sweep thing on the first elite four member is becoming a little running gag isn't it? Will died thanks to Megahorn within seconds. I know I can beat all of Sydney's Pokemon in one hit, but I think the running joke will be broken when I challenge Aaron of Sinnoh's Elite Four. It doesn't matter, but it would be funny if the first members of all 4 E4s went down in one. Ho ho ho..

                              Koga took some hints from Bruno when it came to being annoying. His Crobat decided it would be funny to get some evasion hax with double team; just as Bruno's Hitmonchan did in Generation 1.
                              Luckily for me, his Pokemon were at drastically low levels, with Crobat being level 44. Haha, that's just pathetic for the Elite Four, so they went down with little problem by my awesome army of fighting specialists! What he says about brute force not being the answer is disproved in this fight.

                              http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=YMPe9rHvwq0

                              Wrestling with Bruno, Punching in the dark

                              Ah yes, Bruno's back folks! He's looking a lot less like a caveman in this generation, but he still has the habit of shouting out '"HOO HAH!"'. Of course, now I can't stop saying it, it's contaigious!
                              I decided to have a little fun with Bruno in this fight, so I brought out the same Pokemon as he did; so it was:

                              Hitmonlee Vs Hitomi
                              Hitmonchan Vs Hichiro
                              Machamp Vs Muscle

                              Wait, where's Hidato in all this mess?!? I forgot about him, and Hidato is my weakest member. No offense to that poor spinning top, but his moveset kinda blows. As for his Onixes, Hidato tried his best at using triple kick, but it turns out that the move is less useful than first thought.

                              Karen was my next challenge. Luckily for me, she has a type disadvantage, so I could easily defeat her evil dark types. Even Vileplume was no problem thanks to Hichiro and Fire Punch. There's not much at all to say about Karen apart from what she says at the end about battling with your favourites. It's true, it's way better than fighting with what's the best.

                              Fighting with Dragons

                              The final battle of Johto proves to be a hard one. Luckily for me, Hichiro has Ice punch which gives a tidy 2HKO to Lance's pokemon. Because Hichiro has higher defenses than Hitomi, he can also whistand a few Wing Attacks, making this fight a no brainer.
                              I win the match and become the Johto champion! The next stage will be Kanto, but I won't blog the gym leaders there to speed things up.

                                  Pokemon Ultimate Mono Type Grass Challenge Update 1


                                  Blog

                                  Well the beginning of this challenge wasn’t too challenging obviously. Pick Bulbasuar as my starter making all future battles against my rival that much more difficult. Beat rival and quickly delivered Professor Oaks package. Once I got my pokedex, I headed to Virdian Forest and beat every Bug Catcher I could find. I then trained it until it learnt Vine whip which would help make the gym battle to come that easier.

                                  I then healed Bulbasuar and headed straight to battle Brock for my first badge. The battle was so easy that I had to stall leech Seed stall Geodude in order to get any enjoyment out of the battle. His next pokemon was Onix, but it didn’t cause last took long against my grass type pokemon.

                                  After getting my badge I left the town and headed to Mt Moon, there I caught a Paras, and taught him Bullet Seed, since she wasn’t going to learn any grass moves till later. Bulbasuar evolved and I easily got through the cave. At the end of the cave, I picked the Helix fossil for no particular reason.

                                  Healed my pokemon in Cerulean City, and headed towards Nugget Bridge in order to catch my last pokemon for now. There I meet up with my rival once again, and in a very tough battle (due to his Pidgeotto and Charmander) I managed to win. As a reward I got a useless device to help me remember what other people say about the gym leaders and other supposedly important people. After putting that device in my bag, never to see the light of day again, I challenged Nugget Bridge.

                                  After defeating every trainer there I got a Nugget and a position at Team rocket. I declined the position though as their uniform just not cool enough. I then caught an Oddish in the grass right next to the bridge and when on my way to Bill’s house for no particular reason. I got to Bill’s house and after helping out got a ticket to go on the SS Annie. With that sorted out I headed back to Cerulean City to face Misty for my second badge.

                                  My second gym badge was actually too easy for my taste, Oddish took down Staryu and left Starmie with very little health remaining and Paras sent it packing. I then exited the gym and after healing my pokemon set out to reach Vermulian city. On the way there I caught a Meowth, in order for it to be my Hm slave, and a Spearow, so I could trade it to get the 10 pokemon I needed to get the HM for Flash.

                                  Nothing of interest happened on the SS Annie, apart from Oddish and Paras, evolving. Beat my Rival again, surprisingly he wasn’t as annoying as the last battle, and got the HM for Cut, which I taught to Meowth. Got off the ship healed my pokeon and challenged the 3rd Gym.

                                  Lt Surge wasn’t hard, due to the fact that none of electric attacks did much damage to my pokemon. Gloom and Parasect finished off his Volorb and Pikachu while Ivysuar quickly Koed his Raichu.

                                      Hmmm, I might want to try flying, but a question before I make any sudden movements. If I get charmander for instance, could I possibly train it to Charizard since it becomes part flying then, or is it prohibited? And can I do a similar thing with a Dratini? Oh yeah, could that be possible with EXP sharing them till they're evolved? (BTW Brock would be hell, I guess I'd just train them like mad till they're strong enough, which would be like lvl 20 XD)

                                      Yeah, using Charmander would be all right. I myself am using an Eevee now, waiting for him to evolve into Espeon.

                                      And since you're using Flying, you also have Pidgey and Caterpie to catch before Brock, you know.

                                        Thanks, I was going to ask the same thing about caterpie.

                                        BTW, Hoenn will be easy to beat because they have lots of good, availiable flyers. Roxanne < Wingull

                                          Update on my electrc challenge in Silver

                                          just got done dominating the elite 4 with my team of two electric pokemon

                                          heres my team:

                                          MethodMan (ampharos) lvl 54
                                          fire punch
                                          dynamic punch
                                          thundershock
                                          thunderpunch

                                          RZA (lanturn) lvl 52
                                          take down
                                          confuse ray
                                          spark
                                          surf

                                          heres how the elite 4 went down
                                          Will
                                          every one of his pokemon was taken down with one move by Method very easy

                                          Koga
                                          all his pokemon were taken down by a fire punch except his muk which fell to one surf again very easy

                                          Bruno
                                          thought this would be atleast a challenge but it was not as his machamp is the only pokemon to get a hit off and his 3 cross chops only brought Method down to about half

                                          after healing up off to Agatha
                                          would have been a clean sweep except Gengar took my Methodman when he fainted with him so i sent out RZA to just rape his murkrow and houndoom again very easy

                                          Lance
                                          i thought his dragonite would be a problem and they proved to be tough against Methodman as i ran out of pp for thunderpunch his best move against dragons but thundershock took down one dragonite and almost another but it caught me and RZA was able to easily beat his final Aerodactyl and Charizard

                                          now i just boarded the s.s. anne and prepare for hopefully a tougher challenge

                                          a little note as i was going through the first 8 gyms there was absolutly no challenge till the last gym leader but still only tough because all my moves were not very effective but still a quite dominating performance

                                            Generation: 1st
                                            Game: FireRed
                                            Type: Water

                                            PEWTER CITY

                                            Well, after choosing Squirtle and beating my rival, I began my Pokémon journey. Choosing the Water-type means that things won't be too difficult, as it's the most common type in the game. So I breezed through Viridian Forest after beating my rival for the second time, and since I was only leveling my one Pokémon, I found him to be level 13 by the time I entered Pewter.

                                            I completely destroyed Brock, one hitting all his Pokémon using Water Gun. By the time I beat him, my Squirtle had evolved. All in under one hour, phew!

                                            Party

                                            Wartortle
                                            Level 16
                                            Tackle, Tail Whip, Water Gun, Withdraw


                                            CERULEAN CITY
                                            Finally, after pushing through Route 3 and reaching the entrance of Mt. Moon, I bought my Magikarp. Now, the hard training will begin. I managed to get through Mt. Moon while at the same time, leveling my Magikarp. I got out with my Wartortle on 7 health. Very lucky indeed.

                                            I beat my rival with surprising ease, and spent nearly an hour and a half training my Magikarp to level 20. When it evolved, I took on Misty. Surprisingly, she wasn't very difficult at all, since both my Pokemon knew Bite. One more badge down!

                                            Splash, Tackle, Bite
                                            Wartortle
                                            Level 22
                                            Mega Punch, Tail Whip, Water Gun, Water Pusle

                                              Im back from the LONG break I took.
                                              Six days ago, I forgot to say I beat Norman and got HM Surf, which I taught to Blue. Now Im training till Vulcano, Sandy and Clay Evolve and till they are around level 39 more or less. Ill blog the battles against Flannery and Norman tomorrow and Ill try to record the battle against Winona (Vba stopped recording for some reason, I think because of a virus). Till then, later.
