    Swords of Justice, Claydol, Stonjourner, and More from “Paradigm Trigger!”

    I don't mind decks that don't use supporters (like this one or Golurk). My issue is that these decks are underpowered simply because of the fact that they don't release enough support cards to make such gimmick viable, even in an entirely casual level. This tells me that the design is lazy and...

    New “Preview Box” for Scarlet & Violet TCG Releasing in January!

    LOL I don't know why they're still hiding the fact that these evolve from the same Dragon.

    Pokemon TCG Officially Launching in China, Massive New Market!

    Lol that's ridiculous, for centuries children have managed to deal with concepts like death, poison, ghosts, etc., and they have never grown for the worse. It's not like they're censoring racism, sexism or anything of the sort, it's just stuff that goes contrary to the tenets of the CCP like the...

    Dragonite from “Pokemon TCG Online Illustration Exhibition”

    These are beautiful... Should have been made into real cards, really don't understand why they aren't.

    Grafaiai from Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet Revealed!

    Having an animal based on a tropical primate in a Spain based region is extremely weird... I know that misplaced wildlife is a common phenomenon in Pokemon games, but I have complained about things like Eiscue before, so give me a pass here. Koraidon is similar in this regard, as it blatantly...

    Pokemon Players Concerned as Tournament Registration Fees Hit Nearly $70

    So the physical scene is getting worse and TCGLive remains as crappy as 6 months ago... Thank god PTCGO is still alive, although I wonder how long can the (competitive) game actually survive if the app is the only thing entirely holding it up... I wonder if TPCi is just trying to kill...

    “Pokemon ex” Return, New “Scarlet & Violet” TCG Cards Revealed at Worlds!

    Hooray, big basics are gone in favor of evolving multiprizers. That kind of thing was one of my most loved aspects of the early SUMO era, and I hope they won't EVER touch three prizers again. Let them rot in expanded.

    “Arceus VSTAR Ultra Premium Collection” Coming Soon!

    I'm still waiting for Arceus VStar League Battle Deck...

    “Silver Tempest” English Set in November!

    I mean it's still true that many gen VII Pokemon were left out. Regieleki and Regidrago so far still don't have a V, Enamorus doesn't have a Therian forme card, Hatterene never got its VMAX card (and this one hurts because it's the ONLY pokemon with a gigantamax that didn't get a VMax), the...

    “Incandescent Arcana” Set Featuring Alolan Vulpix VSTAR Officially Revealed!

    Now stuff like Serena is something I truly like. Stuff that punishes the overuse of multiprize pokemon while allowing single-prize pokemon to get off scott-free, with a beautiful character attached? Sign me up. There are a few problematic interactions (like Manaphy in bench for bench or spread...

    Pidgeot V, Thorton from ‘Lost Abyss’!

    So the idea here is getting Cassius with an extra step, which would be Pidgeot.

    Hisuian Arcanine, Phione from ‘Dark Phantasma’

    Having to use a supporter to get to the cards you want is a problem. As I already mentioned, decks like this need to target the bench to get a reasonable prize trade going on, and that means that you want to use Boss Orders. So having to choose between two important cards hurts a deck that wants...

    Hisuian Arcanine, Phione from ‘Dark Phantasma’

    So Granbull is back. There's the small problem that Vstar only give 2 prizes and you still need 2 hits to KO them, so this deck will likely need to target benched support like Lumineon to work. Its typing goes a long way tho, because it OHKOs Arceus... If you can get rid of Dunsparce first. We...

    Clefairy, Clefable from ‘Dark Phantasma’

    So if you manage to trigger the 4 Clefairys that's 14 energy in a single turn, which hits for 280 damage which is enough against Arceus VStar. The only matter is getting to your switch cards in time and energy management after your first KO - because your active Clefairy getting KO'd decreases...

    Hisuian Basculin, Hisuian Basculegion from ‘Dark Phantasma’

    We really need a Battle Compressor reprint, if anything for energies only to make cards like this one viable. Dump 4-5 energies from deck would be fair.
