I thought maybe I was going to have to re-post Torchic because I was a bit puny when I got to work. But as the day progressed I evolved into Combuskin and by time mid afternoon arrived I was on fire and fully evolved into Blaziken. I did have several battles during the day but I was able to defeat my challengers. I'm down to a handful of major issues to manage rather than the horrendous mess I did have. I can rest peacefully on my 4 day weekend. As Blaziken would say, "No one gets the better of me at kicking!"... some assage.
