We are excited to welcome Special Guest Frosted Caribou to the show this week! We learn about her history with the Pokémon franchise and how she got started as a content creator. Adam and I come to learn that her relationship with the Pokémon TCG is very similar to ours. Combining the love and appreciation for the Pokémon and art as well as how the card functions within the actual game. We would be remiss if we didn’t discuss a few specific videos that she has produced lately.


After the break we dig into our Eternatus VMAX, which is this week’s Card of the Week. Adam explains how this card has played a major role in the competitive meta since the release of Darkness Ablaze. On the flipside, there are also many counters that have been subsequently released that make using Eternatus VMAX in competition a bit risky. For the collectors out there, Eternatus V and VMAX come in a bunch of different variations, including Full Arts, Promos, and the very desired Shiny Vault versions from Shining Fates. 


Art of the Week belongs to Garbodor, which has a few different styles and designs that make its card spread fun and diverse. From leaking acid spray to its Shiny Form, there is plenty to admire with this trashy Pokémon.
