    Right, same for me. Im sure there’s people who are going to look back at Gen 8’s TCG the same way I look back at BW/XY and say everything after their first generation of the TCG was the last “good one”. It’s just not for me though, I’ve just started kind of going back to a revived interest in WOTC. I don’t think I’ve actually gotten anything TCG related since Hidden Fates and a few cosmic eclipse things here and there.

    I’ve been considering whether or not the series is just not becoming for me anymore but I think that it’s just a matter of quality. The Snap sequel for instance, despite being new and all that, it looks like it’s going to be pretty high quality compared to the mainline games. And I’m a very active Pokémon Go player because, despite all of its issues, it’s to me a better experience than Sword and Shield because it has everything I want in a Pokémon game-collecting, a full Pokédex, and stuff to do. The last few mainline games have kinda lacked the “Stuff to do” department, let alone the difficulty and the dex cutting SwSh did, basically ruining my traditional transferring my living dex.

    That being said, I think with the TCG it just might be the case. I don’t like most of what the last two generations have been doing, and if that’s just the direction they’re going to go, then I might have to end up coming to terms with it. I want the cards to be more simple, yet still appealing. I liked when Ultra Rares still resembled a normal card, but with some extra bells and whistles. GXs and V’s are just Full Art-lites, kinda taking away the point of Full Arts to me. (Normal EXs has the body of a card still, which made Full Arts feel like they had a purpose, basically). But looking back at Primes, Level X Cards, etc. I want to go back to that, but the TCG doesn’t want to do that. And it’s not like they CANT do anything I like, I liked shining legends and Hidden Fates, plus Tag Teams had some stellar artwork. I like collecting whatever new Charizard comes out, but that’s about it. Luckily there’s always older eras to go back to, while still hoping they eventually do something that appeals to me. Amazing Rares are pretty cool though, all things considered, so there’s something.

    I’d expect the European Marnie collection to cost less since there’s less packs

    I paid 0 over on ebay yesterday. Honestly, I don't even feel bad about it this time. If these are people who have to go out and get the boxes from Target or wherever to fill their orders, I consider it hazard pay at this point. This time...

    Woah, us Europeans got shafted on that Marnie collection. One less pin and a poster instead of a playmat?

    Yell Horn has a risk of counfusing yourself. Unless you're smart enough to confuse your Free Retreat Active, go for it. The spammability effect of the deck really affects it.

    This is interesting. Out of all the battle decks this is probably the best one, 3 very playable cards all for somewhere in the range of 30 bucks?

    Not bad.

    If you mean the Pikarom one, that already came out in May or June I believe, with the Reshizard one. It’s just being shown as an example of what to expect in the next wave of them. They aren’t bad nonetheless though, I’ve been after a Reshizard one for a minute now just to own more of that card, lol.

    VMax decks would be great, maybe Dragapult and Centiskorch or something along those lines.

    If they released a Dragapult one they would be releasing a failed product since no one would buy it. Dragapult is most likely getting killed by the dark that is releasing with darkness ablaze.

    What are the chances its an ADP Zacian deck? would be insane. and they make a custom 'altered creation' gx counter.

    Alright folks, remember to pre-order these BEFORE they get announced and then subsequently price gouged.

    I'm still massively regretting not preordering PikaRom and ReshiZard LBDs when they were $30, before the deck lists leaked and they all sold out + all the stores raised prices to $50-60 :(

    A seller on eBay did presales, I pre-ordered a few minutes after reveal. Then I get the Cancel notification. Then it was relisted higher price. My revenge?

    Used my brother's account, mine and a few of my family's. Bought cheap 50 cents single cards from the eBay shop seller. Left 10 negative reviews. Dropped from 98.8% feedback to 91.3% I think a few others had their cancelled as well because the feedback went to 86.9%

    Moral of the story.

    Be a lousy seller, get lousy rep and feedback.
