An Introduction from RenaeCollects

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

Hello everyone! Pikkdogs has asked me to be a part of the Team Omar community! And I’m very excited to do so. I figure the best thing to do is to start by introducing myself!

Hey, I’m Renae. I collect Pokémon cards.

I’ve only been doing so seriously for a few months now. If you know my boyfriend, JWittz, then you may know that we’ve played a big role in each others’ involvement in Pokémon. In high school, some of our peers started playing their old Game Boy Color Pokémon games and it spread all over school. Who would have thought, right? So we both decided to whip out our old games. I started playing Pokémon Yellow because I had always been a Pikachu fan, and Josh played Pokémon Red. It was our “gateway drug”, so to speak, into the world of Pokémon. (Of course we played it and had cards as kids, but this was serious stuff for two high schoolers :P)

So Pokémon Yellow and Red led to Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. At first, I was turned off by the newer generation Pokémon. In fact, until we started playing those games, I didn’t even know that many Pokémon …

Top 5 Impactful Cards of Call of Legends.

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

Hey all members of Omar-Nation, this is Pikkdogs here with a set review and the top 5 cards of Call of Legends.

If you look on any Pokemon site now a days, you will find no shortage of people bashing this set.  A lot of people are calling it the worst set ever, and are just mad at it. It only has a handful of playable cards, and most cards are reprints of so-so cards from the last couple sets.  Most players call this set a total blunder for Play Pokemon.  The poster child for this so called blunder is Phanpy.  Phanpy has a Poke-Body that twice misspells its names.  The card just sums up what a lot of people think Play Pokemon did with this set.

But, there are people who think that this set is pretty good, we call these people collectors.  These collectors love challenges, and this set features 11 shiny Pokemon, that is what I call a challenge.  There is sure to be value in these Shiny Pokemon if you pull any from the pack, a lot of collectors will be happy to find the rare cards of this set.

Besides being a good set …

Best Set Ever, For Pre-Releases: Call of Legends Tourney Report and Tournament Advice.

Sunday, January 30th, 2011

A big hello to everyone in Omar-Nation, this is Pikkdogs here with a Pre-Release tourney Report and some advice for anyone going to Pre-Release tournaments next weekend.

A lot of people are saying that this is the worst set ever, while I don’t know Pokemon TCG history from Base Set to Diamond and Pearl, I do know that there are not many good cards in this set.  There are 2 good trainer cards, maybe 2 good Pokemon, and a handful of good re-prints; thats it.   No good Primes, Level X’s, or Legend Cards!  These reasons make this set not hugely impactful, but it also does make it one of the best sets ever for Pre-Releases.   

Guide to Winning a Call of Legends Pre-Release

Consistency

This set is full of re-prints of supporters that help in consistency including; Proffesor Oaks New Theory, Copy Cat, Professor Elms Training Method, Sages Training, and Cheerleaders Cheer.  When you combine this with good search/draw Pokemon like Smeargle, Mawile, Pidgey, Ninetails, Relincanth, Skarmory, and Pachirisu; you will get quite the consistent deck.  This means that if you get just a couple good attacking Pokemon, you should be able to get them out fairly quickly.  If you …
