Pokémon on Gameboid

Remember when you used to obsessively play Pokémon on Gameboy Color and Gameboy Advance? Back when you had all the time in the world to just sit in your rocking chair and hatch the same egg a hundred times until you got a Pokémon with high IVs? Yup, those were good times.

Then came a glorious thing called the Internet, and suddenly we all had free emulators and roms. But most importantly, we got access to the information and tools to make our Pokémon stronger.

About Elf Decks (Magic: The Gathering)

After a solid decade of card collecting, I have suddenly been hit with the realisation that no functional deck can be made up of only all my favourite cards. Oh, no. There’s strategy and deck themes to be had.

This fact is glaringly obvious with such trading card games as Magic: The Gathering and Pokémon, where you are limited to using only one or a few different colours within a deck. Sure, you can be unique and chuck in all the pretty colours of the rainbow, but you’d be screwed if you actually tried duelling with it.
