What’s poppin PTCGO Store readers? Have you started looking at all of the amazing cards from Pokemon TCG’s latest set, Silver Tempest? I’ve been preparing for the 2022 Latin America International Championships in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and I’m here to share some of my early findings. At the time of my writing, this article set has basically been fully released, we have limited official English images, but I have a bunch of Japanese translations from trustworthy sites. I guess what I’m trying to say is that it is early, so don’t necessarily come after me if some of these card names slightly change when translated into English or if there is an amazing card that I happened to miss out on. I love writing articles like this because it allows me to brainstorm about upcoming cards and share my passion for the game with our community.

What’s going on, PTCGO Store readers? Your boy Zach is back and I am bringing the heat by featuring the top 5 Lost Origin cards. This new Pokemon TCG set reintroduces the Lost Zone mechanic to our Standard format, and I have to say that some of the themed cards look so cool! They have a Lost Zone-themed aura around the main art of the card, and most of them seem incredibly playable. If the Lost Zone isn’t your playstyle, there are other powerful cards in this set, like Giratina VSTAR (Lost Origin), that will also shake up the metagame. My goal with this article is to introduce our Pokemon community to some of the best cards and share my early thoughts on them! Let’s jump into my number five pick! Let’s get it!

Pokemon GO, our newest Pokemon TCG set, brings the best aspects of the Pokemon TCG and the hit mobile game Pokemon GO. In this celebratory mini-set, the goal is to strengthen the bond between different areas of our Pokemon community, but there are quite a few cards that might end up seeing success at the upcoming 2022 Pokemon World Championships in London. Recently Pokemon announced that the upcoming Lost Origins set will be delayed which means that Astral Radiance will be our latest main set and Pokemon GO will be the differentiating factor heading into Worlds. Furthermore, our usual rotation of cards that happens in August / September has been pushed to early 2023 to bring us closer to Japan’s set legality. The goal of this article is to offer my fresh perspective on the best cards in the Pokemon GO TCG set for competitive play. I don’t always get these 100% right, but I love to share my competitive insight with our community! Let’s jump into these great cards.

Hello, Pokemon trainers from all around the globe! I’m sure you’re all settling up nice and cozy into 2022 with some Pokemon, whether you’re enjoying some good ol’ Pokemon TCG online or some Pokemon Legends Arceus. I decided that with Brilliant Stars on the horizon, I think it’s about that we start focussing on the newest mechanic that will be running our format, VSTARs! This unique Pokemon V only give up two Prize Cards, and evolve from Pokemon V. Here is the product description from Pokemon themselves:
“The stars are coming out to shine in the next Pokémon Trading Card Game expansion, Sword & Shield—Brilliant Stars. There are over 170 cards in this latest collection, including new Pokémon V and Pokémon VMAX. Also featured are brand-new Pokémon VSTAR, which evolve from Pokémon V and come equipped with a mighty VSTAR Power, a special Ability or attack that can turn the tide of a battle. Just be aware that you can use only one VSTAR Power per game (and don't miss our earlier look at the Pokémon VSTAR gameplay mechanic, which includes a peek at Arceus VSTAR and Charizard VSTAR).”
Now let's take a peek at some of these new Pokémon VSTAR and a few of the other awesome cards that you can find when the Sword & Shield—Brilliant Stars expansion releases on 2月 25, 2022!

What’s poppin’ PTCGO Store readers? Are you hyped for the release of Brilliant Stars? I love the new Pokemon VSTAR and I’ve been building as many Pokemon online decks as possible to test this set for our community! Brilliant Stars contains some insane cards, like Arceus VSTAR [Brilliant Stars], that seem to break the game as we know it! VSTARs have a similar power level as VMAX Pokemon, have special VSTAR Abilities / Attacks, and are only worth two Prize Cards. While the set includes many amazing cards, like the reprinted Ultra Ball [Sun and Moon] card, perhaps there are some other cards that you haven’t had the opportunity to discover. That's why this article is here - I’m going to do all of the tests and share my top five cards from Brilliant Stars! If you wanna know all of the relevant cards, I’ve actually gone ahead and included a “buy list” as well to share all of the cards I plan on picking up from this set.

What’s poppin’ PTCGO Store readers? Are you all excited for the release of Fusion Strike? I certainly am and I’ve been building as many pokemon online decks as possible with proxies to test this set for our community! While the set includes some amazing cards, like Mew VMAX (Fusion Strike), perhaps there are some other cards that you haven’t had the opportunity to discover. That's why this article is here - I’m going to do all of the heavy liftings and share my top five cards from Fusion Strike! I have a love/hate relationship with articles like this because on one hand it's difficult to choose the absolute best cards and on the other hand I get to laugh at myself when I miss one of the best cards from the future. Hindsight is20/20 and I’m hyped to share these cards with you. As a super awesome bonus, I’ve actually gone ahead and included a “buy list” as well to share all of the cards I plan on picking up from this set.

Evolving Skies, our newest Pokemon TCGO set, adds many fan-favorite Pokemon into the TCG and there are many new card strategies to discover. Of course, there is the mighty Rayquaza VMAX (Evolving Skies) that soars high, many “Eevee”-lution Pokemon that seem amazing, and of course many new Pokemon like Regidrago (Evolving Skies) that appear in the TCG for the first time. Arguably this is one of the craziest sets ever because it seems like a handshake between the competitive player base and the collectors in this game - many cards are competitive and would be an amazing showpiece in a collection. I love this set and I’m amped to share my personal top five cards so far! I love how this set continuously grows both the Single Strike and Rapid Strike mechanic, has some of the best art that we’ve ever seen, and even brings back Dragon Pokemon to the game! I could go on and on, but this set is absolutely amazing so let’s soar into these great cards!

We are finally going to get to see a few more “Fusion” cards, including some awesome cards like Dragapult Fusion. I’ve covered these new Pokemon twice before, both here - Fusion article 1 and Fusion article 2, and I wanted to make sure to cover all of the upcoming cards to keep PTCGO Store readers knowledgeable on the metagame. There are some spoilers in this article, but by reading this article you will stay above the rest of the competition in the knowledge! I’m certainly hyped for these new cards to release and I plan on covering a bunch of new Pokemon online decks once the set is fully revealed later in 2021. These cards won’t be out for a while, but you can pick up some PTCGO codes for other awesome sets right here at PTCGO Store. To make it even better, you can use code “zlesage5” to save 5% on your next order. Continuing on from my last article, let’s check out some more of the new “Fusion” mechanic!

Hey, what’s good PTCGO Store readers? Have you read my last article on the Fusion Pokemon cards - New Fusion Pokemon #1? If you haven’t, you totally should because this article will be showcasing some different Fusion Pokemon. These cards are similar to Single Strike and Rapid Strike Pokemon because it has a “Fusion” stamp that lets everyone know it’s “style”. These cards are releasing in Japan and we will eventually get them everywhere else later in 2021. I’m personally hyped because these cards remind me of Tag Team Pokemon mixed with SP Pokemon (yeah, I’ve been playing that long) so I have high hopes for the future of the game! While these cards aren’t out quite yet, you can still always pick up some PTCGO codes for other sets right here at PTCGO Store. On top of that, you can use code “zlesage5” to save 5% on your next order. Continuing on from my last article, let’s check out some more of these cards!
