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.

Rumor has it that the most commonly asked question at the Kennedy Space Center is: "How do you go to the bathroom in space?" In this YouTube video, Col. Chris Hadfield of the Canadian Space Agency explains how. To sum it up: it's all about suction.
Thanks for watching, and be careful the next time you wish upon a shooting star!

In the TCG front, the HeartGold/SoulSilver: Undaunted set Prereleases will occur on the weekends of August 7-8, 14-15, and 21-22. This set features some of the best Pokemon Prime and Pokemon Legends yet, as well as cool new Eeveelutions, Supporters, and Stadium cards. As always, check www.pokemon.com for times and locations!
Also, Worlds is coming up in mid-August. The top players from around the world will gather in Hawaii to show the world what they've got! Best of luck to all participants!
After Worlds, the Modified TCG format will shift to Majestic Dawn-on. This means no more Claydol (sniff)! Adjust your decks accordingly, Trainers!
