Plasma Storm Poison Strategies at Pokemon.com
by Poke-Amph on March 11, 2013

plasma-storm-hypnotoxic-laserA new TCG article focusing on Plasma Storm’s emphasis of the Poison status effect is now featured at the official Pokemon website. It covers powerful cards like Hypnotoxic Laser and Virbank City Gym, as well as cards they pair well with like Crobat, Giratina, and, my favorite, Raticate.

Hypnotoxic Laser instantly Poisons the Defending Pokemon and Raticate’s Super Fang leaves it with 10 HP remaining. In between turns, the Poison damage will inflict the remaining 10 damage for the knockout. For an explanation of the other strategies, check out the article at Pokemon.com.

The Top Cut – Pokémon TCG In a Nutshell
by Poke-Amph on February 22, 2013

hypnotoxic-laser-donkHypnotoxic Laser poses a big threat to TCG players that use Basic Pokemon with low HP. The Top Cut has shown exactly why in their latest video.

Pooka starts with a 60 HP Squirtle. His opponent has a Mewtwo EX. His opponent plays Hypnotoxic Laser and Virbank City Gym, uses Computer Search to find a Double Colorless Energy, and then uses X Ball for 40 damage on top of the 30 damage dealt by Poison. All this means he lost the match without even drawing a card.

Plasma Storm TCG Scans at PokeBeach
by Poke-Amph on January 27, 2013

plasma-storm-crobatPokeBeach now has all card scans from the Plasma Storm TCG set. There are 138 cards in the set including secret rares. Interestingly, the Charizard secret rare has an error. Its Scorching Fire attack is misprinted with a Fighting Energy in the attack cost, when it should be a Fire Energy. Oops! We’ll have to see if future printings will fix this error. If they do, the original run will probably be worth a lot.

Plasma Storm Prerelease Tournaments Are Underway
by Poke-Amph on January 26, 2013

plasma-storm-logoPrerelease tournaments for Plasma Storm are running this weekend and next to help build hype for the official release on February 6th. You can use the Play! Pokemon Event Locator to find a prerelease near you.

Prerelease tournaments have a cost of $30 to enter. You receive booster packs to open and then construct a 40 card deck with what you pull from those packs. These tournaments are used to explore the new set, so they are more about fun and less competitive than other tournaments. I would highly suggest attending if you can.
