Before we get to that, lets talk about Nationals. It’s looking like me and the team omar crew will be going to Indy. I would love to be able to meet some of you guys at Indy. If you wanna get in touch with me, the best way to do it would be to send me a tweet. My handle is “pikkdogs”, just tweet me. And for those of you who are wanting to keep up on national news at home, I will be sure to tweet what I see. You can either follow me now, or I will try to make my tweets public before the event.
Also, we should talk about the National tournament in the magical land of Can-a-da. Those Canadians took a break from watching hockey and drinking maple syrup to play a couple games of Pokemon. The popular card in Canada was Yanmega Prime. The free attacking made the card very quick and versatile. It was in a lot of the top 16 decks. Kingdra was a card that also saw a lot of unexpected play. Canada usually is a little more rogue than the U.S. and their nats is a lot smaller than the one south of the border. I do not expect to see a lot more Yanmega because of the Canadian Nats, so don’t change your deck too much. If you have a deck that does not have a favorable matchup towards Yanmega, you might wanna think about changing, but don’t overreact too much. Players in the U.S. have a lot of money and will play more expensive decks like Magneboar and Reshiboar.
