I made this site over twenty years ago. For some reason it's still alive.
Chip Nichols is out sick this week

Just gonna keep things simple this week, as I haven’t been feeling very well over the last few days. Fortunately I have just enough energy for this episode (albeit a day late) but I hope to be back to normal by next weekend. Thank you for your understanding! As such, this week I just want […]


Apparently no one really knows what 'NFT' really stands for... it's been lost to time...

Alright! Another Weekly Roundup is go! One thing I didn’t even realize I did was, I’ve been calling this segment both the “Weekly Roundup” and the “Weekend Roundup”. Totally didn’t even realize that I was doing that, as I started telling people “I’ll post this on the Weekly Roundup” or “this is going on the […]


Cards card everywhere, but not a drop to drink

Well, this is the first official Weekly Roundup! As a reminder, I’m trying to maintain a new update regimin where I post some random bit of Pokémon TCG news—or news which I feel my audience would be curious to learn about—over the weekend… at least at some point while it’s still technically “the weekend”. This could […]

Hello everyone, and welcome to a new idea I have planned for the site: the PA! Weekly Roundup! This is where, instead of writing up a bespoke post every time I do something, I’ll instead just pull everything cool that I found, or that others share with me, and just stick them into a single […]


The long lost Pokémon TCG is now revealed!

So back around March 2020, during the height of the human malware event… I get a phone call from someone who wanted to ask me a few questions about something I wrote on the site. My Midwest genes kicked in and I was all about sharing whatever I could to this complete stranger, because… y’know… […]


...but it's the middle of March.

Ho Ho Ho! Merry Marchmas! So what’s with the Christmas theme? Well, I wanted to release these blanks around Christmas time, as a gift to all of you fans and fakes alike… but, uh… as you can tell, it’s not Christmas. But that’s ok! Let’s just pretend that it’s Christmas. But yeah! I finally was able […]


Oh, and a new game was released recently too!

Happy New York! …sorry, New YEAR. This is why I hate posting on my cellphone! Lousy auto insurance. …CORRECTION. Auto CORRECTION. ANYWAYS…. Yep! As always I disappear for a whole month because of real world concerns, but I’m still here! But because I also need to go to bed, I’m gonna keep this post super short. […]


How the heck did I miss this?!

Oh boy, and here I thought I was done with the whole McDonald’s Pokémon 25 promotion! Ok so if you don’t already know, McDonalds ran a Happy Meal promotion which, well, promoted the whole “Pokémon 25” year-long event. Apparently it was a worldwide event, starting in North America between February 9 and March 9, 2021. Meanwhile […]
