You Can’t Touch This: Walls in the Pokemon TCG

Friday, February 25th, 2011

Hey everyone in Omar-Nation.  This is Pikkdogs here with a strategy article. This article is all about Pokemon that act like walls in the Pokemon TCG. Wall Pokemon are Pokemon that are defensive in nature and either prevent your opponent from attacking you or getting a knockout on one of your Pokemon.   Walls are on of my favorite aspects of a TCG.  I think its great when you can give your opponent a situation in which they can’t hurt you.  It feels deliciously evil.

Before we get started we have some news to deal with first.  Ed and I are happy to announce that we have a new member to the teamomar.com family.  Renae from the “Renae Collects” Youtube show will soon be joining our team.  I think its great that we are getting some more views from collectors, rather then only competitive players.  So expect some collection videos from her in the future.  If you can’t wait for the first video or article, check out her archive of videos on youtube at this link:

Okay, so anyway back to the article.  Just a refresher, we are talking about walls.

Pikkdogs Pikks Three: Gengar SF, Shedinja SV, Umbreon Prime.

Friday, August 6th, 2010

Hello to all members of Omar Nation.  This is your buddy Pikkdogs here to review three cards in a segment I call, “Pikkdogs Pikks Three.”  As always the first card I review will be a popular card, the second will be one that I feel is under-rated, and the third will be a card that is from a new or unreleased set.

Before we get started I want to remind you guys to check with your local tournament organizers because Pre-releases will soon be under-way for the Undaunted set.  These tournaments are always a blast because you get to play some fun games with people from your area, you get a lot of cards, and you can trade for the cards you need.  Just a heads up for you guys, if your local tournament organizers offer a sealed theme deck event I would recommend going to that too.  TPCI has changed the format for theme decks this year so that there are less energies in the deck, more rares (5!), and each deck comes with a pack of Undaunted cards.  Add all those extras to the 4 packs you get just for being in the tournament and thats 5 packs, 60 cards, and a deck box for 25 bucks!

Oh I would also like to wish whoever is headed to Worlds good luck!

…..Well what time is it geeky sidekick?
