This week we take a look back at Evolving Skies and feature Sylveon VMAX as Card of the Week! Not only does this card offer some amazing looks but also a fun and simple way to take advantage of its mechanics. Adam breaks down the card and how it can be paired with other Pokemon to create a consistent plan of attack!


We rip into some packs courtesy of and then discuss the art of Aerodactyl cards! Starting all the way back at Fossil and of course featuring its Mega, Aerodactyl has had some pretty memorable cards over the years. After appreciating some art we take a look at Lists for Urshifu VMAX League Battle Decks! It looks like both Rapid and Single Strike have plenty to offer right out of the box!


We close with the news of Pokémon TCG Live being delayed. While we do wish we were already playing it, we understand the struggle. We both were in agreement that we would rather see a delay then a bad launch of the game.
