Electabuzz, Scyther, Hitmonchan Reprints

Three of the most commonly-used BBPs (big basic Pokemon) when Pokemon TCG was new are coming back!

Electabuzz [BS], Hitmonchan [BS], and Scyther [JU] have been printed in the Pokemon TCG set, Galactic’s Conquest.

Check out the new league, Darkness Gym. It has been posted on the leagues section.

I’m sure some of you were waiting for the official announcement, and here it is: the SoMD Pokemon TCG podcast has been suspended indefinitely. I am not going to say I’ll cancel it, because it would be nice to bring it back, but it just wasn’t profitable enough to maintain a weekly podcast. Thank you to all our fans.

Podcast Episode 17 and 18

We are so close to being the #1 Games and Hobbies podcast in the World! Your one vote can make a lot of difference.

Podcast Change

Here it is: episode 17 of the podcast. Make sure to vote or us on podcast alley! (while you’re there, check out some of the other podcasts on that site- you can find some fun stuff!)
With episode 17, we’ve made a change to the format of the podcast. We are switching to a three-segment format to a two-segment format.
So, we are going from this:

  • Opening Theme: Ozzy Osbourne- Crazy Train
  • Segment One
  • Break #1: Ozzy Osbourne- Crazy Train
  • Segment Two Opening Theme: Mahna Mahna and the Snowths- Mahna Mahna
  • Segment Two
  • Break #2: Mahna Mahna and the Snowths- Mahna Mahna
  • Segment Three Opening Theme: Toshio Masuda- Rock Lee’s Theme
  • Ending Theme: Ozzy Osbourne- Crazy Train

To this:

  • Opening Theme: Ozzy Osbourne- Crazy Train
  • Segment One
  • Break #1: Ozzy Osbourne- Crazy Train
  • Segment Two Opening Theme: Mahna Mahna and the Snowths- Mahna Mahna
  • Segment Two
  • Ending Theme: Ozzy Osbourne- Crazy Train

I wanted to keep “Crazy Train” as the opening music for the show, but as for the opening theme for the second segment, I had to decide between “Mahna Mahna” and “Rock Lee’s Theme”. I think “Mahna Mahna” is better. Comment on what you think about the soundtrack if you have any opinions.

Computer Trouble and Shameless Promotion of Advertisers

I was hoping to have the latest episode of the SoMD PTCG Podcast up a few hours ago. However, my Dell 4600C Desktop has a piece-of-junk proprietary fan that failed while I was using it for no apparent reason.

However, I can still post news items as long as I have access to a computer and can get on the internet. I just went on ebay and ordered a fan, so it should be here in a few days.

Until then, listen to previous episodes of the SoMD PTCG Podcast if you haven’t already. And vote for us in order to put us higher on the Podcast Alley ratings. It would be appreciated. The more votes we receive, the more aware I am that we have fans and that we are appreciated. In other words, the more votes we get on Podcast Alley, the higher the chances of us continuing this show into the future. And remember, if you have something you’d like to advertise in the podcast, send the webmaster an e-mail. That is a great way to help us out.

Episode 17 will be up when I can get my computer fixed.

…Speaking of ebay, ebay is a great place to buy Pokemon single cards! Go to the Aardvark store on ebay (there is an ad on this page that links to it). You can find plenty of Pokemon single cards, as well as commons in sets of four. Due to a recent stepping up of their efforts, the store is now one of the top stores on ebay (if you search for “Pokemon” stores, Aardvark’s shows up on the first page!). A supermajority of the cards from the Diamond & Pearl sets are available on this store. Aardvark is an advertiser, and you can be one too- just click on the advertise link!

…while I’m at it, I am also an advertiser ( I am looking for work. If you or anyone you know is in need of graphic design services (or even a little web design) check out
