Week 3 let's go 💪 Fun little project I came up with for myself; since I don't really bother with the PTCG after the first few sets it worked out nicely for the month of July People have been real butthurt over Galar only having 500+/800+ Pokemon that have been created so I decided to look at the early sets of the game as if they were their own isolated region If say, Vulpix isn't in the Fossil set then Vulpix/Ninetails do not "exist" in Fossil Region (aka Natelandia). Dragonite does not have a card in Base set, therefore no known cases of a Dragonair evolving have occurred in the Base Region and thus, it does not exist From there I thought "what team would I work towards if I was a trainer in this hypothetical region?". It was actually more difficult than expected I've made a team for each of the 5 sets I care about (Base, Jungle, Fossil, Rocket, and TRR) for each week of the month. My two criteria that I tried to abide by are: 1. Avoid using Pokemon on a team that have already been used for example Charizard and Dark Charizard are still "Charizard" 2. Avoid using legendary/mythical Pokemon Here's my third team for the Fossil Region aka Natelandia: Muk Sandslash Slowbro Gengar Dragonite Lapras TBH, that's a team that I'd happily run the RBY gauntlet with 👌 I don't mean to be humble, but I'm real good at this Fun fact about Fossil: it's the only set I have in 1st edition that I don't also have an Unlimited set of So what do you all think? What's your favorite set and what team would you build if you lived in that region? I'd love to see some squads from people. If you decide to do something similar, tag me so I see it! #pokemon #pokemoncards #pokemontcg #ptcg #tcg #oldschoolpokemon #wotc #wotcpokemon #pokemoncommunity #fossil #fossilpokemon #kanto #bestgen #pokemoncollection #1stEdition

Holo Blaine's Arcanine 1/132 (Gym Challenge). This card is so shining...absolutely, one of my favorite card in First Generation. It was also powerful. Don't be fooled by its expensive attacks: they are two and they are both important. The second attack was incredible: 120 damages. Yeah, however, at the cost of 4 Fire Energies among which 3 will be discarded. Blaine's Arcanine was and has been an important Pokemon because it could be destroy Neo Genesis Steelix in one fell swoop. The iron snake enjoyed Metal Energies and Defender(s), but it was weak to fire and Blaine's Arcanine, nevertheless, melt it. He formed a powerful combo with Typhlosion's Pokemon Power "Fire Recharge" that allowed to re-attach that Energies discarded to pay its 120 attack. This Arcanine is glorious! #pokemon #pokemoncards #arcanine #blainesarcanine #blaine #gymchallenge #gymheroes #pokemoncollector #pokemontcg #instapokemon #tcg #pokemoncommunity   #tcgcommunity #pokemontradingcards #pokemontrainer #oldschoolpokemon #vintagepokemon #wotc #italy #slurpuff #slurpuffchannel #youtube #vintage #holografic #miracletwins #jotho #kanto #charizard #pokemoncollection

Holo Dark Steelix 10/109 (Ex Team Rocket Returns). Neo Genesis Steelix has been one of most powerful cards, defensively speaking, in TCG. But even he doesn't joke. Dark Steelix is a beast with 110 HP (like Neo Genesis one) but it gas the advantage not only to reduce damages with Metal Special Energy but also to inflict 10 damage more thanks its "Dark" in its name with Darkness Special Energy. The first attack, Energy Link, helps Dark Steelix to charge its (too) expensive second attack, Heavy Impact. To inflict only 60 damages at the cost of 4 energy, oddly, of which one Fighting. With the right support, this card become a wall. Some Berries and Potions are basic to keep Alice Dark Steelix. Nice and strong. And wall. What could be better? #pokemon #pokemoncards #darksteelix #steelix #exteamrocketreturns #teamrocket #pokemoncollector #pokemontcg #instapokemon #tcg #pokemoncommunity   #tcgcommunity #pokemontradingcards #pokemontrainer #oldschoolpokemon #vintagepokemon #wotc #italy #slurpuff #slurpuffchannel #youtube #vintage #holografic #miracletwins #jotho #kanto #charizard #nintendo #gamefreak #pokemoncollection

Holo Rocket's Zapdos 15/132 (Gym Challenge). This Zapdos's artwork is pretty creepy. Even if Zapdos usually hasn't a benevolent face. Skipping my opinions, Rocket's Zapdos has been one of strongest card at the time of WOTC. Plasma inflicted 20 damages with only a Energy and allows to retrivial an Electric Energy to attach to it. The second attack, oh Arceus, inflicted for 4 Energy 70 damages with 30-40 damage because of the recoil. This card was used with other staple Basic Pokemon like Scyther, Electabuzz, Magmar, Hitmonchan and Rocket's Mewtwo.They were powerful for damages that inflicted but most of all to counter No-Evo Aerodactyl Deck. This card is history. #pokemon #pokemoncards #zapdos #rocketzapdos #gymchallenge #gymheroes #teamrocket #pokemoncollector #pokemontcg #instapokemon #tcg #pokemoncommunity   #tcgcommunity #pokemontradingcards #pokemontrainer #oldschoolpokemon #vintagepokemon #wotc #italy #slurpuff #slurpuffchannel #youtube #vintage #holografic #miracletwins #jotho #kanto #nintendo #pokemoncollection #charizard

Holo Brock's Ninetales 3/132 (Gym Challenge). Brock's Ninetales was an incredible card for each type of deck. His utility lies in its Pokemon Power Shapeshift. Thanks to it, this beautiful fox can become any evolution card, simply by attaching it. Then, that evolution card could be discarded to play another evolution card. Brock's Ninetales could be played still nowadays. It could be funny to find out strategies and absurd combos. Brock's Ninetales is better than Lost Thunder Ditto cause the first one allows to play also Stage 2 Pokemon and to discard and re-play them, instead the second one allows to play Stage 1 Pokemon. #pokemon #pokemoncards #brocksninetales #ninetales #gymchallenge #gymheroes #pokemoncollector #pokemontcg #instapokemon #tcg #pokemoncommunity   #tcgcommunity #pokemontradingcards #pokemontrainer #oldschoolpokemon #vintagepokemon #wotc #italy #slurpuff #slurpuffchannel #youtube #vintage #holografic #miracletwins #jotho #kanto #charizard #nintendo #gamefreak   #brock

Holo Nidoqueen 7/64 (Jungle) Ah, Nidoqueen....what a Pokemon! Two days ago I reviewed Nidoking. Today, it's her partner's turn. This is the first Nidoqueen in TCG and she has been much luckier than Nidoking. In 2005 and 2010 Nidoqueen won WC. The first attack, "Boyfriends", inflicts 20 damage more 20 for each Nidoking on our bench. Virtually, an attack by 100 damage. The difficult thing was to put Nidoking on bench. Otherwise, this was a great attack for two energy. I've always liked Nidoqueen because she was completely light blue and light blue is my favorite color. #nidoqueen #nidoking #jungle #pokemon #pokemoncards #pokemoncollector #pokemontcg #instapokemon #tcg #pokemoncommunity   #tcgcommunity #pokemontradingcards #pokemontrainer #oldschoolpokemon #vintagepokemon #wotc #italy #slurpuff #slurpuffchannel #youtube #vintage #holografic #miracletwins #jotho #kanto #charizard #nintendo #gamefreak #pokemoncollection

Holo Dark Blastoise 3/82 (Team Rocket). This card is part of one of smallest sets ever: only 82 cards. "Dark" Pokemon were a little different from not-Dark ones. "Dark" ones had few HP (even less than normal at the time) but they inflicted more damages. For example, this "Dark" Blastoise can inflict until 70 damages for 4 energies and 40 safe damages with 3 energies. This fact depends on, if I remember correctly, Team Rocket treated Pokemon badly, making them evil. However, at the expense of their health (HP, I mean). Some time after, Dark type and "Dark"-named Pokemon would have been boosted up by Darkness Energy (10 damages more). Thanks to its first attack Dark Blastoise can shot others Dark Blastoise. Team Rocket was truly cruel and infamuos! #pokemon #pokemoncards #darkblastoise #blastoise #teamrocket #pokemoncollector #pokemontcg #instapokemon #tcg #pokemoncommunity   #tcgcommunity #pokemontradingcards #pokemontrainer #oldschoolpokemon #vintagepokemon #wotc #italy #slurpuff #slurpuffchannel #youtube #vintage #holografic #psa #psacard #psapokemon #pokemonaddict #charizard #kanto #jotho #venusaur

Holo Nidoking 11/102 Set Base We are observing, perhaps, one of weakest cards in Base Set. Honestly, Nidoking is almost unusable, if it wasn't for its second attack, Toxic, which allows to put 20 damages instead 10 on Defending Pokemon. However, 20 damages are still few to make it good. Nidoking, in TGC, never had the luck of his partner, Nidoqueen, that in 2005 and 2010 won WC. Also in videogame, in the competitive enviroinment, Nidoking is considered "moderate" by players, like me. It could do more, but the current metagames don't allow him to be a recognized force. This fact depends on its average stats. Too average. This card is, anyway, beautiful! #pokemon #pokemoncards #nidoking #baseset #setbase #pokemoncollector #pokemontcg #instapokemon #tcg #pokemoncommunity   #tcgcommunity #pokemontradingcards #pokemontrainer #oldschoolpokemon #vintagepokemon #wotc #italy #slurpuff #slurpuffchannel #youtube #vintage #holografic

Holo Ninetales 12/102 (Base Set) In TCG Ninetales has always been a good card, but I think that Base Set Ninetales has been underrated at the time. Two good attacks, but I want to dwell on Fire Blast. Expensive attack: 4 Fire Energies and the sacrifice one of them for 80 damages. Really strong and useful: you think, most important pokemon at the time was Scyther, Electabuzz, Hitmonchan, Articuno, Mewtwo, Alakazam, Wigglytuff. These pokemon had 70-80 HP and Fire Blast was perfect to KO them. The problem was, guess, "Raindance": Ninetales was (and still is) weak to water and this is the reason why, maybe, this card the success it deserved. I really appreciate the fatuous fires around it, from an aesthetic point of view. Many Nintales,later, like "Ex Sandstorm" Ex-one and "Ex Hidden Legends" one would have been important and really powerful. #pokemon #pokemoncards #ninetales #setbase #baseset #pokemoncollector #pokemontcg #instapokemon #tcg #pokemoncommunity   #tcgcommunity #pokemontradingcards #pokemontrainer #oldschoolpokemon #vintagepokemon #wotc #italy #slurpuff #slurpuffchannel #youtube #vintage #holografic #yveltal #ninetalesex #exhiddenlegends #exsandstorm

Holo Gyarados 6/102 (Base Set) Gyarados has been doubtless one of most powerful Pokemon cards in the first era of TCG. He was part of "Raindance" archetype, or rather, the FIRST "Raindance" archetype. Eh yes, if it was the main attacker thanks to Blastoise's Poke-Power, it would later be replaced by Fossil Articuno. The legendary pokemon was a Basic Pokemon, therefore it was easier to play. Infact, Gyarados not only was a Stage 1 Pokemon, but it evolved (and still evolves) from a very weak pokemon, like Magicarp. The damages inflicted by Gyarados, previously, and Articuno, later, was similar and so players choosen Articuno like top attacker of "Raindance". Nevertheless, the version of this archetype of deck with Gyarados in are really strong, but slightly slower to set up. Gyarados has been reprinted in "Generation", but Base Set Gyarados wins sharply the comparison. #pokemon #pokemoncards #gyarados #setbase #baseset #raindance #articuno #magicarp #blastoise #pokemoncollector #pokemontcg #instapokemon #tcg #pokemoncommunity   #tcgcommunity #pokemontradingcards #pokemontrainer #oldschoolpokemon #vintagepokemon #wotc #italy #slurpuff #slurpuffchannel #youtube #vintage #holografic
