    Shockingly, GameStop’s Graded Card Program Will Buy PSA Cards for Their Market Value! All The Details!

    Depends on how often the LCSs were used for laundering. But seriously, it is quite an idea. Take in all the good cards, horde them until no one can get their hands on them to up the price, then use the lack of supply to shell out the pack for it at a premium, only selling the best cards out of...

    TPCi Has Been Expanding Number of Pokemon TCG Vending Machines in U.S.

    Because, if you don't, they might decide to buy out the machines themselves, and no one wants that.

    They made Landorus-EX.

    'Eevee Heroes' TCG Set to Feature All Eeveelutions as Pokemon V, Plus Gengar / Inteleon VMAX Decks!

    Even better when you consider the synergy between the two Pokemon.

    'Eevee Heroes' TCG Set to Feature All Eeveelutions as Pokemon V, Plus Gengar / Inteleon VMAX Decks!

    That's not the most important part. Umbreon-V is a Single Strike Dark type that OHKO Calyrex and Dragapult at a reasonable cost. All you have to do is run Houndoom.

    'Eevee Heroes' TCG Set to Feature All Eeveelutions as Pokemon V, Plus Gengar / Inteleon VMAX Decks!

    I want that Umbreon V. 80 + 80 for fulfilling a condition that synergies with Houndoom means Psychic decks aren't as scary for my Urshifu deck.

    First Teaser Info for S6 'Silver Lance' and 'Jet-Black Spirit!'

    Pokemon are rarely ever good in a meta setting. Most of the Pokemon in these sets seem to be made with pre-release drafts in mind. Pack battles are always fun, if not expensive.

    Don't forget the Weakness Guard Energy tech. You'll need it for PikaRoms.

    Discussion What Are You Playing Right Now?

    The last Pokemon game I played through properly was Pokemon Emerald. The evil teams felt pretty weak since their teams were pretty one-note, but as a VGC regular, it was fun playing through so many Double Battles without the slow pace of the Colosseum series. At some point, I want to make a team...

    Discussion New Tier List After Cosmic Eclipse

    Have you thought about NuzzleChu with the new Reshiram/Zekrom? The deck as it is can take full advantage of Roxie and has the option to run Weezing for chip damage against ADP and some Gardevoir/Sylveon decks.

    New 'Sword & Shield' Info, Easier to Train Competitive Pokemon and More!

    Under normal circumstances, there's nothing stopping people from dodging all wild encounters with a Smoke Ball to make a break for the Center between battles. Having instant access to the box just quickens the process.

    Japan Rotating All "A" Block Cards from Standard!

    The amount of Energy acceleration has gotten pretty ridiculous, and Welder was likely the last straw out of all of them. If it were specific to only Fire Pokemon, maybe it would be acceptable, but you have a lot of decks now that can use it, even if their main type isn't Fire. There isn't even a...

    Japan Rotating All "A" Block Cards from Standard!

    If TPCi really wants to balance the game, they should make it illegal to attach Energy manually on your first turn if you go first.

    'Tag All Stars' Set Revealed in 'CoroCoro!'

    Considering when it comes out, definitely Mimikyu if you run any sort of chip damage (Shrines, Spell Tag, Giratina).

    Standard Aegislash UNM

    If you don't mind giving up Fire Energy for Water, you could probably tech in Froslass to handle ReshiZard.

    Discussion What is a "healthy meta"?

    I can't even begin to pin down what the "perfect meta" would be like, but I could think of a few general rules to follow for a balanced game. 1.) Benchmarks for damage should be set in advance in preparation for new sets. Right now, the damage benchmarks are 70, 130, and 240, and future attacks...

    Alt. Format Rayquaza GX with Unified Minds WIP Decklist

    A lot of decks nowadays focus on small Pokemon over big Tag Teams, and your Pokemon are pretty frail. You already have enough discard with Viridian, so you can drop Shuckle. I would say you should have a way to snipe Jirachis and unevolved Pokemon. Try using Zapdos.

    'Remix Bout,' Japan's July Set!

    About Guzzlord, 120 lets it take out Quags, Baby Blacephalon, Weezing, and Zapdos, and Giratina is Dark weak. 150 HP also means it survives Double Electropower Zapdos. Loss of Baton does hurt, though.
