Welcome back to another episode of Special Conditions! We start things off with this week’s TCG Player pickup, Eldegoss V! Adam breaks down that how this inexpensive card can be played to shake things up in the current meta! Mix that with some awesome art and it would make an awesome addition to your collection!


Next we dig into some new cards from Chilling Reign including the Galarian Legendary Birds! Time will tell if we see these cards make their way into the competitive meta, but we will keep you prepared! One thing is for sure, these cards have some great use and amazing art!


Our weekly segments are back with Venusaur VMAX filling the Card of the Week slot! We break down its use and also list a bunch of cards that would compliment it in competition! Art of the Week is all about Oddish! From realism to super cartoony, to Ken’s favorite crochet, there are a bunch of different artistic looks available for Oddish!


Finally we wrap up with a look at the different typings in the TCG and how they differ from the main series and Pokémon GO! If you are new to the TCG, you don’t want to miss this segment!
