Let’s say you don’t have many cards, can’t trust people over the internet without seeing what they are doing, and need an application to play in. Well I just found one, sponsored by PokeBeach, it’s Red Shark. Download it here to play. The interface takes a bit of getting used to, but all in all it works well. Note there is NO rule enforcement. The other part of this is setting up a VPN to use red shark. I next post I will show how to do so with a free program.

Broken Card of The Week


`This Slowking is one of two cards that Wizards actually banned, and this one the only one banned due to the effect. It’s Pokémon Power was misprinted in America, saying that basically it could stack for each Slowking you had out. So you could attempt up to four times to block each trainer. Instead of editing the card text and posting online that the power was edited they just outright removed it.

Being able to stop a trainer from working once is crazy already, but being able to stop EVERY trainer your opponent plays FOUR times? I’d call that a broken card if I ever saw one.

Broken Card of the Week

Promo Entei holo

This week it’s the Promo #34 reverse holographic Entei. This card is quite broken in not only it’s attack cost to do 50 damage (and have no draw backs, and give your bench protection), its Pokémon Power Bolt lets you flip a coin when it take damage, and if head you can return it and everything attached to it to your deck. Pretty handy. And then the retreat for this beast is a measly one energy. As was said earlier today of the new legendaries if Zekrom is a Dark/Dragon type “It’s not a Pokémon its a trophy!” And that this card is.

The Mascots are In

Well the big guns just got announced. Reshiram the dragon type legendary in Pokémon black and Zekrom the dragon type from white. Apparently they tie heavily into the storyline of Isshu and are also rumored to be multi-type (shocker!). I have to say that Reshiram is kind of stupid, but Zekrom is pretty cool, though there is an eerie resemblance to Palkia and Dialga in the Fourth Generation…

Pokémon in Holland

Photo_052710_001  Well now isn’t this just awesome! Someone in the area thought it would be cool to post up some Pokémon sprites. So far what I have found are a Marowak and a Dugtrio, but I hear there is more. I am eventually going to take my Turtwig around and get shots with all the sprites if they are still there when I do. Though this is really awesome, and I think more people should do it, provided it is actually legal. If it is it would make Holland a cool place. Though its only a bit cooler than the other posters I found.

So the new Theme decks are general crap.  They are both Tri-element and aren't very balanced when it comes to the three. They only have three darkness energy for the above and three metal energy for the one based on Steelix. These decks are general crap and I suggest dodging them, go for booster packs of this set instead.

Isshu: The Region of Pokemon Black and White This is a good link to get some information on the new region in the fifth generation as it updates. Serebii is a quickly updating site, but bulbapedia is more extensive.
