    Writing Murphy's Laws of Pokémon Combat

    High five! Your comprehension of Murphy's Law as a general concept is noted. Nobody has written a "Murphys Laws of Pokémon Collectors and Booster Opening". This is an opportunity for someone like you to step forward!

    Writing Murphy's Laws of Pokémon Combat

    "Rejected Laws" that didn't make the cut: The only format that's been completely perfected or optimized is the one you think about in hindsight. A deck with an acceptable win rate in a smaller tournament, can expect to have less success in a larger tournament. Corollary: If a player's deck's...

    Writing Murphy's Laws of Pokémon Combat

    Based on Murphy's Laws of Combat Any resource you use to modify damage right now, you'll need later, too. Anything you do can lose you the game, including nothing. The strategy you've assured yourself is foolproof, will only be such, until you show it to someone else. The easiest prizes always...

    Pokemon Specificity is the Future of Pokémon Development

    If such a Pokémon were introduced in the video game, each Pokémon would have a 6% chance of have an allergy to said Pokémon. It would inhibit their ability to perform Mega Evolution. It would evolve into cashew oil, and there'd be some mechanic where you can only evolve it if a rock type is in...

    Discussion Will you be playing Tate and Liza post rotation?

    There's not enough disincentive to play Items, (e.g. Garbodor GRI) or item lock (e.g Seismitoad EX). Switch will be sufficient. For most decks, I'd rather Cynthia, shuffle for 6, and hope I draw a Switch (or Escape Board, even!) or burn up as many cards from my hand as possible, and then Lillie...

    'Unbroken Bonds' Now Out of Print, Possible New Trend for Future Print Runs

    The booster boxes are not sold with a statement that guarantees they were printed from Date X to Date Y, in Z quantity, and that no more will be made. When I buy booster boxes, I know what I'm getting into, and the risks. Additional copies of any of the cards in my possession could be...

    'Unified Minds,' August's SM11 Set!

    Yes, August 16th is the 3rd Friday of the month of the release of the set. This is why I am optimistic about Worlds, but also impatient. I want to know the full set of cards Worlds participants have to work with, right now! But I'm also optimistic, because this set is huge, so anyone who...

    Mewtwo-GX, Erika To Be Awarded at Japan's Draft Tournaments This Summer!

    "Each player may draw up to 3 cards" Wonder if it will be legal to play, if both players choose not to draw any cards. When you play it, you know if you're going to choose not to draw, but you don't know if your opponent is going to choose not to draw! This is one of those "can't play a trainer...

    Gotcha, that IS something that's worth looking into. I started running tournaments back in 2005 (before the release of TOM) and ran many tests with TOM (and many real tournaments) when it came out. The program has been a "work in progress", like many other kinds of software out there. There's...

    Standard Aerodactyl

    Yeah, really! All the "challenges" they have on the game like "do 800 damage with X type Pokemon", they should have a "Ridiculous Amounts of Mulligans" challenge that awards you with tickets or something.

    IMO the TAE is your backup plan if the Baton doesn't work.

    Standard Malamar toolbox

    Don't need 2 Onix if you can get it back with rescue stretcher. Even if it's prized, you can Guzma to KO something that's a little easier to KO than PikaZek, then draw Onix out of the prizes. Maybe put in a GengKyu.
