    New Version of “Heavy Hitters Premium Collection” at Sam’s Club

    I believe there’s 14, but still a fantastic deal.

    Large Pokemon Factory Theft Comes to Light, But Probably Didn’t Impact Fans

    Honestly my buddies and I use the terms interchangeably, but usually use “hits” for the good packs, not individual cards. We’ll still use “alt art,” “full art,” etc. but say something like “I got 6 hits in my ETB.” To us, it’s more clear and concise.

    “Scarlet & Violet” Fun Packs Already in Stores: New Reverse Holo Pattern Revealed!

    Great RH pattern! Side note: as someone who didn’t mind the gold/yellow borders, the silver is still taking some time getting used to; they remind me of the World Championship reprint decks, wherein the cards had little to no value (non-tournament legal and little worth to collectors). I’m...

    New Paradox Pokemon: Walking Wake and Iron Leaves!

    I’m totally the opposite — I think it’s way more interesting than just “x but robot.”

    “Scarlet & Violet” English Set Revealed for March: Silver Borders, Three Holos Per Pack, Price Increases

    Actually a pretty exciting press release. Having just gotten back into the TCG this spring, I’m looking forward to the SV block. I’m with everyone else on team “will miss the set symbols and yellow borders,” though. I never understood the hate for the yellow/gold — but maybe that’s because my...

    “Pokemon Scarlet” and “Pokemon Violet” Announced! Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly!

    While there's every possibility I'm wrong, because this is the first mainline series where the paired versions feature different outfits (that are clearly school uniforms), I have a hunch that the two are somehow related.

    “Pokemon Scarlet” and “Pokemon Violet” Announced! Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly!

    I believe those might be the crests of two different schools; the MC's Scarlet uniforms likely correlate with the orange emblem, while the uniforms in Violet correlate with the grape emblem.

    “Pokemon Scarlet” and “Pokemon Violet” Announced! Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly!

    I was only half expecting a Gen 9 announcement today - generations, save for a couple exceptions, are usually 3 years; on a dev schedule it made sense and not too soon at all. What threw me off was Legends, but since BDSP was outsourced to ILCA, I figured Gen 9 was still in the realm of possibility.

    Hisui Pokemon and New Character Rares Revealed for ‘Battle Legion!’

    I was never a huge fan of Kleavor based on its official art and the model used in-game, but seeing the card artwork has changed my mind a bit. I can’t deny there’s something pretty cool about it.

    'Celebrations' is our 25th Anniversary Set, Includes Reprint of Base Set Charizard!

    Anyone who knows me or follows my work is aware of what a huge fan of anything Neo-era I am! I know it's limited, but I love the idea of bringing back old gimmicks, especially Light Pokémon. That Toxtricity looks fantastic! I might actually have to buy some cards (for the first time in over a...

    Nine Surprising Changes Announced for the PTCG: Fairy Pokemon Dropped!

    When Fairy was revealed as a new type years ago, Psychic was one of the TCG types I felt Fairy Pokémon would best fit in (if they didn’t get their own TCG type). An interesting change, for sure, as is the move of Poison types to Darkness. It makes sense, though, as Psychic would become pretty...

    TCG Fakes Neo Redux: A Triumphant Return? (Image Based) // Gee, you're big.

    So, friends, it's been over a decade since I started this ridiculous project. Holy smokes. While I've certainly been busy in my real life, this thing has been a relative constant. I have pages upon pages of Word documents full of spoilers for the unfinished cards (literally hundreds of pages)...

    Pokemon VMAX, Sword & Shield Cards, Meowth V MAX Special Collection Revealed!

    At this point I just like checking in to see what new gimmick the TCG has. Honestly, it makes me long for the Base-Neo days, although seeing as the recent main series titles are all about gimmicks, I suppose these translate well to the TCG.

    News America's November Set: 'Crimson Invasion,' Two Ultra Beast Premium Collections!

    I don't think our opinions could be more different! :) I love the UBs; Buzzwole and Xurkitree in particular are now two of my favorite Pokémon -- and so is Silvally! I stopped actively playing a while ago, and when I collect, I usually only collect normal versions of Pokémon -- so, like ex, Lv...

    Discussion Does Dragon Need a Basic Energy Type?

    While I don't play in the current meta, I enjoy the way Dragon-types are now; by requiring other types of Energy to attack, they provide a nice foil to Colorless Pokémon (of which the vast majority can use any type of Energy). I think that Fairy may have been cooler if they introduced it as a...

    TCG Fakes Neo Redux: A Triumphant Return? (Image Based) // Gee, you're big.

    Thanks, Jabber! I'd love if you wanted to help out with the Tapus -- I'll send a PM ASAP! While it'd be cool to use free attack cost, the mechanic didn't exist until DP. While I'm incorporating some newer stuff into Redux (Burned, Restored, etc), I think I'll keep it as-is for now. Will...
