    New 'V-UNION' Trademark Filed for the Pokemon TCG!

    These are horrible on so many levels. Ugly for collectors and gimmicky for players. I hope these don’t end up being widespread in upcoming sets. Worse than BREAK cards.

    Target Pulls Pokemon TCG Products from All U.S. Stores Amid Attack Incident

    I didn’t even realize Target carried TCG cards anymore. None of the stores I’ve been to in CO, CA, NM, TX, and OK have had any on their shelves in a couple years. Didn’t realize some stores still had them.

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

    Especially not with the glitter, which I hate. IMO they somehow managed to make rainbow art cards even more unappealing by adding tacky glitter all over them. I hope they do away with that at some point.

    PSA Suspends Card Grading Services Amid Record TCG Interest

    The rage towards scalpers isn’t misguided. Scalpers suck, period. Doesn’t matter if it’s for cards, electronics, masks, etc. The problem is people are assuming that PSA is doing this to stop scalping. They’re not; they’re doing it because they’re overwhelmed. It will luckily have a negative...

    'Matchless Fighter' Revealed as March's Japanese Set!

    Except for the birds and Blaziken, the rest is pretty underwhelming, visually speaking... Not enough for me to buy this set (haven't bought anything since Tag All Stars). Do we really need *more* SR gold energies? How are these different from the ones in S/M?

    'Matchless Fighter' Revealed as March's Japanese Set!

    That Zapdos is straight out of Roadrunner cartoon. Love it.

    'Shiny Star V' Announced for November, Plus Blastoise and Venusaur VMAX!

    I really like it, a lot more than the previous two, which I wasn't a fan of (art-wise).

    'Shiny Star V' Announced for November, Plus Blastoise and Venusaur VMAX!

    I actually think this art is kind of cute. Isn't it every 2 years? At least the shiny sets. Seems that they're releasing them a year after the new generation starts. Unless you count Tag All Stars, which was a special set but not a shiny one.

    Leftover 'Sun & Moon' Full Arts Releasing in English!

    It's a bad price for US so hopefully it will be different here. Most of these packs go for $3-5 here, so maybe $50 would be a good price?

    'Shocking Volt Tackle,' Japan's September Set!

    I agree with AshCo. Too many rarities. I miss the XY days of just having full arts with a few secret rares. I also think the full art texture quality on English cards was better back then (I think it has gone downhill; Japanese cards are still good). I miss sets like Ancient Origins and Primal...

    'Eruption Walker' Japan's Mini-Set for April!

    Leaving cards out has pretty much been the standard in Pokemon TCG for a long while now, just like how Moltres EX never got a full art, while Articuno got many. I wouldn't be surprised if they left the others out.

    Japan's March Set: 'Rebellion Crash,' Plus Toxtricity V, Charizard VMAX, Grimmsnarl VMAX!

    I like them all except Copperajah VMAX, which looks terrible.

    Japan's March Set: 'Rebellion Crash,' Plus Toxtricity V, Charizard VMAX, Grimmsnarl VMAX!

    The artwork in Sw/Sh has been amazing so far. The full arts especially are such a huge step up from SM. Not a fan of the glitter effect on the gold cards but otherwise loving the secret rares.

    'Blastoise-GX Premium Collection' in July!

    Yea it’s pretty disappointing. Gyarados was such an amazing full art but they are way off with Blastoise.

    Porygon-Z-GX, Blaine's Quiz Show, and More Gym Promos Revealed!

    It's not crap, but not great. It has some potential at least. Porygon line are some of my favorite Pokemon as well. I wish it would get a FA. Of course, it probably won't. Instead, we'll get yet another FA of Pokemon that have already had a billion FAs (Charizard, Gardevoir, Mewtwo....) Still...

    Full Metal Wall in February

    Still not a fan of most of the artwork from the Tag Team sets... What is up with that Blastoise? Looks as bad as Gen 1 Blastoise in Red and Blue.

    Major 'Pokemon Switch' Rumors Today -- A Breakdown and Analysis!

    Blech, all gimmicks and silly things, no good core gameplay or progress onto the next level for the series. Luckily I wasn't expecting Gen 8 until 2019 anyway, so this is just sort of an extra "eh, pass" for me.

    Japan's SM6+ Set, 'Dragon Storm,' Plus 'Champion Road' Mini-Set!

    Don't understand why they always do the same legendaries and ignore others. Where's the Suicune/Moltres love? Zapdos needs a little more too, though not as badly as Moltres. Articuno and Entei get everything.

    Collecting The "Look What I Pulled" & Pull Rates Thread

    Not sure why you're unhappy with that. Crimson Invasion pulls sucked and that's really good by Crimson Invasion standards.
