70,000 trainers descend upon Gotham (NYC) and they’re all there to see Adam. Ok maybe that’s a bit of a stretch but Adam was a notable trainer at Go Fest NYC and we discuss how it went! There was a podcast meetup for the New York state of Grind. While in New York, Adam and Justin got to play in person Pokemon TCG matches! Chien Pao vs United Wings, what could go wrong?


New York was full of surprises as Adam got the Lorcana starter decks early from the Times Square Disney store! The early days of Lorcana are reminding us of the Pokemon Card shortage craze of 2021. 


We go on a tangent about card quality and comparing Darkness Ablaze to Obsidian Flames. Are the cards more flimsy or are they more sturdy? Printing quality seems to be all over the place. 


Path to the Peak is a MUST WATCH show for trainers of all ages. Young kids will enjoy the animation style and action in the show. Adults will appreciate the nostalgic references throughout. We discussed what we enjoyed about the first 2 episodes.
