Nidoqueen d Card Review, TFG Interview, Leafeon / Glaceon Translations

Nidoqueen d Card Review – Red5bv06, Krucifier, and smacktack15 of Team Lv.X have reviewed [Nidoqueen d from EX Dragon Frontiers] for their third card review. To comment on their card review and Nidoqueen, post in this forum thread.

IGN Pokemon TFG InterviewIGN has conducted an interview with Pokemon USA in regards to the Trading Figure Game. The interview discusses the TFG’s mechanics, why Pokemon decided to create the TFG, and other interesting aspects.

The name of the next set was also revealed – Groundbreakers, which will be released in December. For those of you wondering whether or not organized play will be established for the TFG, the interview states that Pokemon USA is considering it (and they probably will wait to see how well the TFG sells this holiday season to determine this). PUSA is already working on the third TFG set, so we can definitely say that it will continue to sell – organized play and tournaments are another story, though.

Leafeon and Glaceon Translations – Bangiras has translated the Leafeon and Glaceon promos that players will be able to receive at the Japanese “Winter Challenge” tournaments. The name for the Palkia trainer card posted in the previous update is “Mysterious Pearl,” but the image is too small for translation.
