(Pikkdogs Note: I saw Pokeman Dan has a new Pokeclass up, so I thought I would post it for him. I am busy with work right now and am actually trying to test some BW-on decks out, so be patient with me as it might take several days to test and get some articles written. In the meantime enjoy the smooth tones of our favorite British guy, Pokeman Dan.)

Hey everybody! Saturday the 30th June brought us to UK Nationals, the same weekend as US Nationals and I was excited for the biggest tournament of the year in the UK. Within this episode, I start off by showing you the list I used for the tournament and follow up with how the day went for me.
Hey everybody at OneHitKO, apologies for this one being a tad late, but should be perfect for those of you already in Indianapolis, testing franticly for Friday’s action. For those of you starting Nationals on Saturday, this episode should be perfect for ironing out any problems in your decks and will help you to test against the field of decks that are already taking over National Championships all over the world!
Hey everybody at OneHitKO, it’s been a while!
Some of you may remember me and I am back posting on OHKO.com with my video series PokeClass, which is designed to help players new and old alike in developing their skills as a Pokemon TCG Player. This week is all about analysing the huge amount of results we have obtained from Spring Battle Roads from across the world and seeing what came out on top, what made an unexpected appearance and what this means for upcoming National Championships. I hope you enjoy and next week will be your one-stop guide for preparing for Nationals!
This week I cover a pretty controversial topic which has been the center of many rumours around the community at the moment. I will be talking about possible changes to the ELO system that we currently have in preparation for the new season which technically started on the 1st September.
This week we finally saw the 2011 World Championships come to a close and there were some very interesting results indeed. The Top 2 consisted of two interesting deck choices which I will go into detail about in this episode and I will also talk about why certain other decks did so well at the tournament.
This week, I debut a brand new format of bringing you PokeClass. I have added video content to make the presentation of the information a lot more ‘viewer friendly’ and hopefully you will all enjoy the changes.
Note: I’ve had a lot of feedback about the ‘live video’ additions with pretty much all of them being positive. I have taken into account that people like the full screen video better than the bottom-left corner so that will be a change for the next episode. I can assure you I’ve ironed out most of the creases from this episode, so bear with me ’til next week where I think I’ve got it mastered ;)
Emerging Powers is set for release in just a few weeks and we have just had the full set list released to us, so this week, I’m tackling all of the most interesting cards from the set and analysing each one of them. Stay seated for a fairly long episode!
Enjoy and comment below what you think of the changes :)

Hey all of you at OHKO! Today, I bring you two of my episodes covering everything about the past two weeks in both Canada and the US.
Canadian Nationals Recap:
This episode covers all of the very interesting results we received from Canada two weekends ago. We have a very nice range of decks making the Top 16 and I go over some of the most interesting ones.

Hey all of you at OneHitKO! This is PokemanDan bringing you the next episode of PokeClass.
This week is the start of the HGSS-On deck analysis for all of you that have Nationals coming up soon!
ZPS is one of the most hyped deck of the new format since it can get a very powerful donk going on through the first turn. A very tough deck that has very strong early game presence, but maybe that’s the biggest weakness. Watch the video to find more in-depth analysis!
Now, I’ve included the playthrough video in this post to save you having to click elsewhere. It simply goes through the first turn of Zekrom, showing you how you can manage to do 120 damage on just the first turn, including 3 energy attachments! Watch below for more.
Enjoy and comment below what you think about the deck.
See you next week,
This week it’s all about UK Nationals and how I got on during the tournament. Overall, there was a surprising shift in the metagame where Vilegar clearly outweighed SP in the amount of play with a few other decks sneaking their way in. To whoever I met on the day, thanks a lot for making the day so enjoyable and I hope to see you all around the UK next season! Speaking of next season, PokeClass will be all about HGSS-On as of next week meaning more deck analysis, options for decks and there will be a return of my Deck Surgery Mini Episodes! Make sure you subscribe and check back next week for all the new HGSS stuff, exciting!
Thanks for watching!
