The article gives a pretty good overview of the Pokemon franchise. Anyone who's curious about Pokemon should give it a read.
On a related note, I was informed during the Undaunted prerelease that Florida's own Heidi Craig (PTO of the Orlando area, mother of three outstanding Pokemon TCG players, and all-around nice lady) has been chosen to help judge the Seniors' division at Worlds! Congratulations, Heidi!
I wish good luck to all participants! May the best deck win.
