Pikkdogs Pikks Three Future Card Edition: Mew EX, Terrakion EX, and Garchomp

Friday, July 13th, 2012

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there.  This is Pikkdogs here with a special Pikk three article for you.  This Pikk Three article is not special because it has to take classes in school away from the rest of the class, it is special because it is all about cards that are coming out in the Dragons Exalted set.  This set will come out early in August, but the pre-releases start in just a couple weeks.  We do not know for sure what cards will be coming out in the set, but we do have some that are confirmed. Luckily for us the ones that are confirmed are pretty good.  So let’s take a look at three of the better cards coming out in Dragons Exalted.  I regret to inform you that Pedro will not be joining me on this article.  Pedro is on vacation this week, so he will be off for a while.  I also will probably not be making articles regularly, so bare with us during our vacations. Because this article is about cards that don’t always have official English scans, I will put in pictures of things I ate from my summer vacation.  I …

Pikkdogs Pikks Three: Double Colorless Energy, Ruins of Alph, and Boufallant Dragons Exalted

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

Editors Note:  This article was supposed to be published about a week or two before Nationals, but it was delayed.  Because of the fact that I am too lazy to update it, I will just publish it in the original form.  So if it seems like it was written 3 weeks ago, its because it was.

 

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there.  This is Pikkdogs here with a Pikk three article for you.  In case this is your first time at the rodeo, a Pikk Three article is like a big card review article.  I will review three cards for you, one card is a commonly used card in the format while another is a card that I feel is under-rated, and the final is a card that is from a new or yet unreleased set.  Before we get going I should introduce my extra-dimensional sidekick Pedro.  Hey Pedro.

How’s it going Pikkdogs?

Going well.  Hey Pikkdogs do you have a news article for us today?

Well, not so fast.  Listen, I have been your “sidekick” for about a year now.  I think it’s time that I get my own sidekick.

How would you get your …

Pikkdogs Pikks Three: Professor Cup Special: Seismitoad, Zebstrika ND, and Archaeops

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there.  This is Pikkdogs here with a special edition of Pikkdogs Pikks Three.  This time we will be taking a look at three cards that will be good for the professor cup format this year at Nationals. Before we talk about to much we gotta do a disclaimer.

NOTE: EVERYTHING IN THIS ARTICLE IS NOT ABOUT THE MODIFIED FORMAT, IT IS ABOUT THE PROFESSOR CUP WHICH HAS SPECIAL RULES.

The rules for the professor cup are always a little bit different, this year we have rules that are very different.  The first rule is that the format is Call of Legends on, only CL and Black and White set cards can be used.  The second rule is that basic Pokemon are illegal.  The third rule is that Stage 1’s are treated as basics and Stage 2’s are treated as Stage 1’s.  That means you can start with a stage 1, and then evolve once into a stage 2.  These rules make the format different and it should be a lot of fun.  Before we talk about some cards for the format, let us say hi to my sidekick Pedro. Hey Pedro.

Hey

Pikkdogs Pikks Three: Dark Explorers Edition: Espeon DE, Hooligans Jim and Cass, and Raikou EX

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there.  Since we are in the time right before serious testing is about to start for Spring Battle Roads, I thought it would be a good time to do a Pikk Three article.  This is a special Dark Explorers edition of Pikk Three,  we will showcase some of the more interesting cards from the Dark Explorers set that I haven’t talked about yet.

But first, we must bring in Pedro because if we don’t, I think the government will have to start paying him unemployment.  So its easier if we let him speak.  Hey Pedro.

Yo.

Hey Pedro, you have been doing a lot of news articles lately, why don’t you try a this day in history.

Because I don’t know which day it will be published?

Well, just pick a day.

Okay, on this day, May 5th, John T. Scopes was arrested for teaching Darwinism.  What followed was one of the more highly publicized trials of its day.  The trial was nicknamed the Scopes Monkey Trial.  Pikkdogs, you were once on trial for a crime that included monkeys weren’t you?

Well it’s best not to talk about that.

I guess.  Do

Pikkdogs Pikks Three: Zekrom EX, Black Belt, and Empoleon DE

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there.  This is Pikkdogs here with a Pikk Three article.  Right now in the Pokemon world people are looking towards Spring Regionals.  After that there is the release of the Dark Explorers set, so that is all very exciting.  But, we are still kind of in a slow period for a couple more days waiting till Regionals comes our way, so why don’t we do a Pikk Three article?  Now it is time for my extra-dimensionary sidekick Pedro to start us off with a news article.  Why don’t you talk about sports today Pedro?

Okay sounds good, I can do a sports thing.  This is a busy time for sports we just got over a busy weekend with the opening day of baseball, and the Masters.  But, what has been capturing a lot of the attention has been the scandal in Arkansas over head football coach Bobby Petrino.  Petrino was fired this week for inappropriate behavior with a staff memeber.  He was in a motorcycle accident two weekends ago, fortunately he was able to recover with only minor injuries.  The intrigue started when the police report stated that he was riding on

Pikkdogs Pikks Three Durant Counters: Victini #15, Volcarona NV, and Zebstrika

Friday, March 30th, 2012

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there.  This is Pikkdogs here with another Pikk Three article for you.  This will be a special Pikk Three, where I will review cards that are considered Durant counters.

For those of you that know Ed personally, I have just received some great news.  Ed and his wife welcomed their fourth daughter Friday morning.  Baby Primrose is 9 pounds and 21 inches.  Both her and Ed’s wife are doing well.  So, big congrats to my buddy Ed and his wife, very happy for you guys.  On behalf of myself and the OnehitKo community, Congrats Ed we wish ya guys the best.

So now onto another baby, Pedro.  Let us see what Pedro has for us today.  Can you give us a news article to start things off Pedro?

Well sure Pikkdogs.  Foxnews.com is reporting that a Turkish shampoo company is being asked to pull its newest commercial from the airwaves.  It seems like the commercial features Adolph Hitler speaking to men and telling them to buy this new Shampoo.  Jewish activists are appalled that a company would use someone who is associated with hate and genocide as a spokesperson.  Would you buy

Pikkdogs Pikks Four: Engineer’s Adjustments, Seeker, Fisherman, and Copycat

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there.  This  will be a special edition of the Pikk Three article.  It will actually be a Pikk Four, and it will feature 4 supporters that have fallen out of favor in the format.  Maybe we can drum up support for these cards and they will see some play.

This is where I usually introduce Pedro and we talk about boobies and stuff.  But, not today.  Today there will be no boobie talk or fart jokes.  I just found out that the older brother of my best friend during high school has died from an overdose.  He, Jeremiah, had always struggled with substance abuse problems, but he was a nice guy.

I just don’t feel like making fart jokes today.  I don’t feel bad for Jeremiah, he knew what he got himself into.  But, he left his 3 year-old daughter without a father, and he forced his parents to bury him, that’s who I feel sorry for.  So instead of making jokes today, I just want to tell everyone out there to be careful.  I know that college students make up a lot of our reader-base, and I know that there is …

Pikkdogs Pikks Three: States Edition: Thundurus, Virizion EP, and Battle City

Saturday, March 10th, 2012

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there, this is Pikkdogs here with a Pikk Three article.  As always, these articles are a three pack of card reviews.  One is on a popular card, the second is on a card that I think is under-rated, and the third is from a new or yet to be released set.  Before we go on to the reviews, let us first welcome my colleague from a different dimension, Pedro!

Hey Pikkdogs.

So, Pedro what do you got for us today.

Well today we have some news from DARPA.

The 90’s MTV cartoon?

No, that was Daria.  This is a government agency called the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

That is a horrible name for an agency.  I like the more classic and simple names like CIA and FBI.

I guess the guy who does the naming must have been sick that day.  Anyway, DARPA has announced that it has made a robot Cheetah that has broken the Robot Land Speed Record. 

I didn’t know they had a robot land speed record.

Pikkdogs Pikks Three: Celebi Prime, Exp. Share, and First Ticket

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

A Big Hello to all you OHKOers out there.  This is Pikkdogs with a classic Pikk Three article for you.  This is an article where yours truly reviews three cards.  One cards is usually a well played card, one is a card I feel that is under-rated, and the final is from a new or yet to be released set.  Before we get things started, I would like to take this time to bring back a fixture of this website, my sidekick, Pedro.  Hey Pedro.

Ummm. Hey Pikkdogs.

Are you mad Pedro, just because I left my extra-dimensionary sidekick for like 2-3 weeks, doesn’t give you an excuse to get angry.

I’m not mad because of that.

Good.

I’m mad because when you reprogrammed my inter-dimensionary porthole, you set it to the universe in which that new Rob Schneider Sitcom happens in. 

Three  weeks with Rob Schneider, that must have been hell.
