Welcome to the PokeGuardian Podcast. This is the 33th episode.
The hosts of the show will be Taj from PokéTaj, Zakariya (PrimalLugia), the webmaster of PokeGuardian.
And in this episode, Taj returns from the 2022 Pokémon World Championships in London with some interesting stories to share with everyone. Also, they teased the upcoming Scarlet & Violet TCG cards during Worlds, and with ex cards returning, this has a lot of potential!
The highly anticipated Incandescent Arcana set was released on September 2, and it turned out to be a nice set, with some cards being extremely expensive at launch. Along with this set launch, a plethora of merchandise caused the Pokemon Center Online site to crash so hard at launch that Pokemon is taking precautions against popular products.
Lugia? Lugia??? Is it finally going to happen? Yes! Lugia VSTAR is on its way. Silver Tempest has been announced for an international release in November; we will discuss what has been revealed thus far and speculate.
Charizard? Charizard??? Is there another Charizard? Yes! A Charizard fan's fantasy! Charizard will be the focus of this year's Ultra Premium Collection!
Things are about to get even crazier, as a very limited Lucario VSTAR HR has been revealed for Japan; this one will be very cool, expensive, and highly sought after!
Finally, TPCi outdid themselves once more by displaying the Mew VMAX League Battle Deck. Incredible value for a competitive deck at only $29.99!
