Fine, Challenge NOT delayed after all...
Big reminder...

Why I haven't been updating? LACK OF NEWS!!!

Challenge... not delayed.

Wizards is wrong, you can get your Challenge packs already... and could have for the past week. =P


Get your G/S reserve slips ready...

Today in the news:
Challenge delayed. Awww......
A cool alternative to Apprentice!

Challenge... delayed.

How predictable? Very. The Phantom X pointed out Wizards' page... it has been updated. The release has been moved to Monday, October 16

Hmm... that's my driving test date... I wonder if that's a sign... oh wait, the PSAT is the next day...

Tired of Apprentice?

RealHomero has sent us an update of his Pokémon Card program. It's updated, and it... works!

He's still working some kinks out, if you're interested in this pretty cool pokémon-only Apprentice alternative, visit his page here.

My only gripe is that it doesn't have promos... only base-rocket.

Today in the news:
Non-holo Birthday Pikas?
If that's not enough... Gym Challenge THIS WEEK!
International Cards

Birthday Pikachu is Holo AND Non-holo!

Just like Mew, Wizards is doing 2 versions of the well-sought card. The Non-holo one is due to come out in Leagues soon. And because of that, Kakkaroto7 has sent us a scan of his 4 Birthday Pikas!

By the way, don't ask him to trade. I already tried that. =þ

Gym Challenge gets a release date! And you'll like this...

Get ready...
