    Eight Cards To Be Banned from Japan's Expanded Format!

    Ghetsis we already banned internationally, Surge was gonna be the centerpiece of a broken enough strategy sooner or later, t1 marshadow or red card is nasty enough I can see the rationale, Floette is not a balanced t1 card and they banned Wally, so I'm not gonna complain about Flabebe. But I'm...

    Japan Rotating All "A" Block Cards from Standard!

    The new t1 rule seems almost like a return to the "attack 1st turn" era, which was horribly broken. Now everyone wants to go 2nd more than they wanted to go 1st before and things are even less balanced - evolution decks theoretically could benefit but they still need supporters to set up their...

    Ash Ketchum Finally Wins a Pokemon League! Will His Anime Run End?

    The Alola League felt like a joke, no badges for entry and not too many in the way of strong trainers, I'm still bitter he lost Kalos. Orange Islands genuinely strikes me as a way harder competition.

    @PokeMedic You didn't correct the incorrect input in my round 6 match that I pmed you about at the start of last round. Made it in anyway but it might mess with seeding.

    SM11b 'Dream League,' Japan's August Set!

    Geez they really want this to be the Reshizek era huh. And here I was hoping the reign of those pokemon (with Pikachu, Charizard teammates) would finally end.

    table 175 birdboy2000 defeats @snoopy369 2-1. The match made me really appreciate untimed best of 3, long match and it ends differently IRL, but I'm glad I had long enough to figure it out. Good games.

    Help How to beat stall?

    Some stall builds can beat malamar, I've actually built one with a winning record against it. It can do so because metal energy is a finite resource, you don't have free retreat (save via escape board, and I play lysandre labs) and the deck can wall your attackers, just not all of them at once...

    Help Important Cards Rotating this September?

    On a personal level, an electric-dominated format sounds bad for me, especially if it's a narrow meta - I tend to play rogues, and most of my favorite pokemon are weak to lightning. :( But I'll see what I can do.

    Help Important Cards Rotating this September?

    A format with so many restrictions on search is gonna be weird, I hope it doesn't just make the types with dedicated search dominate. We'll have cherish ball, Elm's, and pokecomm at least but I've heard bad things from people who tested post-rotation.

    Lusamine and Delinquent Banned from Expanded!

    People keep asking at tournaments when I do use it in standard. "I thought that was banned?" "Only in expanded". Will be nice to have around for another year, if I can make a decent stall list to use it in.
