    Meowth from ‘Pokemon Card 151’!

    Dark Sylveon wasn't a dual-type Dark Pokémon as in the TRR style, but went with the TR/ND approach of it. This is a translation problem of sorts, but it's somewhat preserved in the English TCG – when we talk about Dark Pokémon, it's different from talking about Darkness-type Pokémon.

    Kabutops, Omastar, Old Dome Fossil from “Pokemon Card 151!”

    Buried Fossil can evolve into Kabuto, Omanyte, and Aerodactyl, all of which have been printed as Stage 1 cards.

    Gamestop Lechonk Promo for “Scarlet & Violet,” Changes to Promos!

    No, it really wasn't? You're kind of the only person I've seen to keep bringing this up and you're off by several degrees.

    Pokemon Judge Receives Lifetime Ban Following Harassment of Transgender Players at Tournament

    We've seen Pokémon bring in politics into itself over the years – their vocal support of movements like BLM, some kind of confusing (confused?) show of support for Ukraine in a war between Russia, etc. and there's this sort of passive-aggressive edge to it where it knows people will disagree but...

    Galaxy Holofoil and Galaxy Borders Returning to “Scarlet & Violet” Promos!

    I've always understood these to be fanmade terms and often confused with one another. It's a strange hill to try and die on unless it can be "objectively" proven that the terms actually come from internal names for the foil.

    “Scarlet & Violet” Booster Pack Configuration Finally Revealed: Major Exciting Changes!

    I don't actually care for reverse holos. To be completely open, I'm at a point in life where I'm not interested in buying Pokémon cards anymore – looking at pictures of them are fine and I'd rather just play the game virtually through alternate forms – but nothing about this announcement has...

    Creatures Opens Official Instagram Account to Promote TCG Artwork

    It'd be good for people to archive these. Japanese have a very different approach/philosophy to the internet, and just because they've put something up doesn't mean they won't take it down and keep it taken down. You're technically not allowed to share any of the art provided during last year's...

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

    I think the purpose of the inverted color of the set symbol isn't so much ease of reading as it is implying the reverse holos – or what Japan always referred to as parallel holofoils – form a parallel set.

    Help Fake or real?

    FAs have occasionally been printed without the texture (as an error, this has been documented by reputable sources), so that isn't necessarily a giveaway. It's the holofoil itself that makes me think it's fake – I'd want to see it in person in the off-chance this is an interesting misprint, that...

    Paldean Tauros Illustration Rare from “Triplet Beat!”

    It's a bit loose, but I appreciate the Kimba reference doubt they'd want to reference a rip-off

    Magikarp Illustration Rare from ‘Triplet Beat’!

    Seems suboptimal. Why not group SV + SV1a together into a set, rather than SV1a + SV2?

    “Ruler of the Black Flame” Trademark Filed for the Pokemon TCG!

    the ability to identify the design inspiration is tangential to the fact it's a terrible monster design

    “Ruler of the Black Flame” Trademark Filed for the Pokemon TCG!

    what the heck are any of those things? they look even less like pokemon than ultra beasts or anything from gen 9 did. no wonder they have to keep bringing back older cards and pokemon back
