    Let me start off by saying that I played back when Base Set came out, so I was around 13 at that time. I was addicted to the game, enjoyed every winking moment I had with it. I would go to school with my decks and duke it out with everyone else that had decks. I stopped around Neo Genesis due to a lack of interest, that being the same reason why I left in 2006 during the EX sets.

    I went to a comic and collectibles store this past Friday night.


    Now mind you, I know I declared myself a quitter in terms of Pokemon. Same goes for Magic, Yugioh, VS, and so forth. I still know how to play those games, and my current interest lies with Heroclix. Resume story.

    Part 3- Luck


    In any game, there is a luck factor. In card games, especially, there is a luck factor. Most of the luck is based on the random outcomes a deck can yield with the top card.

    With Pokemon, luck is in abundance.


    In Pokemon, there's luck in what the arrangement of the deck is, luck in what prize cards are there, luck in what the first 7 cards are before a game, luck in what your opponent does, luck in coin flips...
