    I think it's Pokémon GO that did the trick. A few years ago I'd get laughed at for playing a "kid's game", but now it's cool to play Pokémon.

  2. I kind of disagree with that. Pokemon GO was a success in that it was so revolutionary. It was a unique program, something that hadn't really been done before. Right now Pokemon is starting to improve on something that has existed for a long time that no one has been too interested in until now.

    Notice how Sky Legend has the Shiny Sparkles on the art.

    I don't see where we disagree. I'm simply stating what the public perception of Pokémon was before and after the release of GO.

    I quite like how catchy the GG one is. Much better than "Cosmic Storm of Awakened Heroes: Legendary Edition" or whatever.

    WAAAAAAAH METAGAME CONCEPTS BAFFLE ME WAAAAAAAAAAAAH

  8. Ok, but did Pokemon GO get the public interested in the video games, TCG, or the anime?

    Yes? You realize that this entire new "family-friendly" orientation (e.g. this new Family Pokémon Card Game box) is at least partially, if not majorly, thanks to Pokémon GO right? Pokémon GO got the general public - people who wouldn't have cared about Pokémon otherwise - to get into the hobby. A lot of these people are really young kids or adults who may not have the time or passion to play competitively, but they'd like to play nonetheless, so they made these products to cater to that audience.

    So, yes, Pokémon GO did get the public interested in TCG, as evidenced by the fact that they're making this product for this audience especially. And Pokémon GO is literally a watered down version of the video games so if someone started playing GO and decided that they liked Pokémon video games the natural next step would be to play the main series. So GO got the public interested in the video games too.
     
  10. I understand what you're saying here and I think to some extent, you're right. However, Pokemon GO didn't do much about the narrative surrounding the popular video games and even the TCG. I do realize that it's all Pokemon anyways, but from what I've seen among video gamers and TCG players, they usually gravitate towards one thing and don't really care about the rest. I don't mean this as a generalization, but I believe it applies to a lot of fans. In addition, most GO players didn't really go deeper into Pokemon, they just chose to spend every waking moment on the mobile app game and walk around like zombies.

    Secondly, I see no connection between Pokemon GO and this new product that Japan is releasing. Yeah, it is a waterdown version of the videogames. I agree that it would've been cool for fans to get involved with the videogames too, but it hasn't really been happening.

    Guess we can agree to disagree. I think one thing we can both agree on is that this new product will affect Pokemon in a different way than Pokemon GO did and will be just as revolutionary for families and people of all ages. Thanks for sharing! :)

    I hope I get a Pidgey out of the Legendary bird set. I also hope the zapdos and moltres have the same ability as the articuno. Guess Charizard gets a new card again.

    I would love if they did Tag Teams for the Legendary Birds in the same way that they did the LEGEND cards of the Legendary Beasts in HS Unleashed... I always thought that was a cool way to put that trio together, so it'd be cool to see again.
     
  13. Water Pokémon Master I like Pokemon more than you. :D

    I hope we get the Flying type in the TCG in Sky Legends. I probably shouldn't get my hopes up though

    By “Garchomp & Giratina GX”, do they mean Garchomp GX and Giratina GX, or Garchomp & Giratina Tag Team GX?

    Asking ‘cause I’m hoping beyond all hope Garchomp finally gets the full art it deserves. :)

    Aha! It seems Pokemon had an agenda when they started making Tag Team GXs! They wanted to make this card all along!
