    Basically I wanted to prove that I was ready to write an article on Prop 15/3, my favorite format, so instead of skipping straight to writing an article, which is my wheelhouse, I decided to film a battle with commentary and create my first YouTube video first.

    Confusing? Yes. Will I ever make another video? Who knows. Can you read the cards in the video? Sadly, the video got fuzzy when I uploaded it to YouTube. But I made something different, which is personally exciting!

    There's a higher resolution version linked in the description now, by the way, so you can actually read the cards.
    PTCGLEGENDS unifies dozens of credible sources to create an archive of deck lists, set lists, tournament results, and more, and has a strong article series highlighting numerous cards and retro formats. (And no, I am not payed, and PTCGLEGENDS doesn't compete for Pokébeach's niche as a source of contemporary strategy articles, tournament reports, and TCG news.)
    Just saw your Marshadow entry for Fakers Marathon. It kinda reminds me of my Mimikyu SVD from my custom set last year. Making your opponent use 1 of your own attacks is a great concept that imo should be explored more!

    It’s attack cost (one Psychic and one Colorless) is flexible enough that you can tech it into most decks, but unless your strategy revolves around this Pokémon, you will probably have a benched Pokémon whose attack your opponent can copy to Knock Out Marshadow… before getting a crack at another of your Pokémon at the end of the turn.

    Thanks for commenting on my card! I find it encouraging that you took the time to share what it reminded you of and to share some of your own memories of custom card design.

    Wow!! Your Porygon is very creative and unique too! I admire it! It might seem a little OP because its Ability can be used consecutively, but the idea has potential to expand and open doors to new tactics. I might even make fakes in the future using this idea!
    Last week, a player named Sean Adams hosted a 44 person, online 2004 Worlds tournament. Team Magma’s Groudon and Blaziken squared off in the final round again. While the Blaziken list that took second place in 2004 is outdated (newer lists replace Rayquaza ex for Ditto from Skyridge and Corsola from Hidden Legends), this video is still a fine example of 2004 gameplay.
    The Holon Phantom is now only 29 subscribers from hitting 1000! This is a rematch from his second tabletop battle video, which is also his second most popular video, but the quality of his videos have definitely improved since then, so I’m hoping this video will get almost as many views as the original. (As you can probably guess, I’m a big fan of this channel.)

    I also hope my YouTube channel reaches 1000 subscribers someday... my channel is bbb888 (handle: @bbb_888)
    Anyways, this was another fun video! I feel like The Holon Phantom mainly plays with old cards. It would be refreshing to see them playtest with modern sets... oh, wait. People like Bewear The Terrible already do that. Lol ?
    This is the first tabletop battle video for the Prop 15/3 format to use optimal lists! Prop 15/3 is one of my favorite formats and my go-to format for teaching the game to friends. To find out more about this hidden gem of a format, read about it on Jason Klaczynski’s blog! https://jklaczpokemon.com/prop-15-3

    I just watched this video, it was awesome. Never played Prop 15/3 but I probably will eventually.

    I’m feeling the same way about Worlds 2004 right now… I’m not sure if I want to dip my toes into the water, but it looks interesting, and I’ve seen some cool content (in my case, an article) that got me thinking.
    If you see me on TCGONE, ask if I’m available to play Prop 15/3!
    Sorry it took me so long to respond.
    Hope you are doing well.
    There were a couple of other videos I wanted to post for the YouTube channel I shared earlier. This was one of the most back-and-forth games I’ve seen in a long time. I was on the edge of my seat at the end! (The other one was the “2 Year Anniversary! Retro Format Base Theme Deck Tournament” video, but I’ll want to add the link to a separate post later so it’s not spam.)

    Also, before anyone asks, no, I’m not the YouTuber who posted this, no, I’m not paid by said YouTuber, and no, retro tabletop battles are a very different niche than modern theorycrafting, so these aren’t competing with Bewear’s videos (much). I just thought people here would appreciate these videos.
    I found this YouTube channel called Holon Phantom with over 70 tabletop Pokémon TCG battles, many of them for vintage formats. I’ve been thinking about sharing it with this community for a while because I have really enjoyed the quality of the videos and the diversity of the decks used. Also, the channel is still growing. I hope you find this series as interesting as I have.
    Encouraging news on pull rates from Scarlet & Violet! Special Illustration Rares have a 1 in 32 pull rate, and Ultra Rares have a 1 in 15 pull rate, catching us up to Japan in "secret rare" volume! (I.E. (very) roughly 3 "secret rares" per $120.)
    Charmaster:)

    The reference to confidence intervals concerning the Special Illustration Rare Koraidon's pull rates also served to improve the article's credibility, which I had questioned for previous entries in the series since the pull rates for "chase cards" of the same rarity were rarely even close to similar. It's kind of funny to imagine each "secret rare" being an "equally improbable" pull.

    Also, I just realized this essentially means that Special Illustration Rares are filling the niche held by Trainer Gallery Pokémon. I wonder if that means that their prices might fall even farther.
    Charmaster:)

    Of course, there's always the chance that people from Japan are ordering these cards overseas as a cheaper alternative to their rarer versions of those same cards. The Starmie V and Garchomp V Trainer Gallery cards are similarly affected, if I'm understanding correctly. Or maybe Misty and Cynthia are just popular enough to elevate their first partner Pokémon to Pikachu-tier market value status.
    Is deck garage dead? I posted a couple of threads just over a week ago and I have yet to receive a single response.
    hi i couldn't really on the post for some reason, but yes i just want to know if I'm getting a good deal for those decks. i eventually want to able to sell them but for now i wanna collect them.
