From today's chat, the biggest news (in my opinion) is that Neo Genesis Slowking will be banned from Modified format starting Jan 1, 2003, when the new Pokemon Floor Rules are released.

Well, I guess another card has been taken out of the ring. Luckily, I don't play Modified, but anyway, thanks for the warning. I'll tell the other Modified players in my neighborhood this news.

Why did they ban Slowking? Is it because of its super-common uses in disrupting people's games?

That's a good news for people not play major archtypes.I fear this type of deck.

Well,I examine Mindy Lambkee's Donphan deck.The combo are so "tight" like nail & flesh!Dark Feraligatr also work good with Slowking.

I also saw slowking being played in local tourney in Sri Petaling,Kuala Lumpur.(I saw it myself).The winner is the person play Slowking.

Too bad I live in a different country, so it will take a while to band Slowking. This is good news for me cause I play a Kabutops(neo2) deck that needs fossil egg/mysterious fossil.

While Mind Games will become unplayable, there are still two other Slowkings that are still usable, just like there is one other Sneasel than the one that was banned. You can still play the SI Slowking (which I think is a better card) and Dark Slowking from Neo Destiny. I brought up Sneasel for the Neo Revelations version.

I wish that there would be a Pokémon game show.

Anyone up for making a TV edition of the Pokémon TCG?

Really? Well doesn't bother me at all. I don't use it at least in Mod anyway. It's far too easy to use anyway. I just wonder why didn't they make this ruling sooner. Those who love it in Mod, enjoy it while you can [Evil Smirk] That's all I'm going to say.

its just going to be the return of "trainer-mon" all over again. The Japanese wanted this card baned? Why do I find that so hard to belive?
I guess no one really played Muk.
Eh, Igglybuff went to the box now.

Pokémon Power: Mind Games

Whenever your opponent plays a Trainer card, you may flip a coin. If heads, that card does nothing. Put it on top of your opponent's deck. This power can't be used if Slowking is Asleep, Confused, or Paralyzed.

* * *

A few months ago during a battle, my opponent had two Slowking (Neo Genesis). In order to use my trainer, my opponent would have to flip twice to get tails so I could use my trainer. Having at least a heads, I could not use a trainer. This made it difficult to be victorious against the opponent.

If this is related to peed, then perhaps the speed of decks may be faster.

Hmm this is a not good thing for the non Neo 1 Slowking players. I realize that Slowking(N1) is a real pest and I understand the complaning (in pain)
from the opponents. I guess the Wizard guys were planning to banned Slowking(N1).... I'm not a big Slowking(N1) user and I only use Slowking(N1) in standerd so it dosen't make a difference. I've tried not to battle Slowking(N1)users in Modified.(Kinda scared and Hungry) [Crowd]

If this is true (I haven't seen the chat myself, just reports of it here), I applaud it. Slowking simply gives it's player to big of an advantage over his opponent. At least Chaos Gym and Dark Vileplume affect both players equally. The enviroment has become: Either play Slowking, or design your deck to beat Slowking (often BOTH).

Contrary to what others have been posting, I believe this will make the field much more wide open. You can build a deck that doesn't have to be set up 2nd turn for fear of the 'King shutting your drawing down.

So it's the end of Iggly, too? Yeah, I guess so, but so what? It wasn't good for anything except countering 'King, anyway.

Iggly's good for turning off Mew's power when doing damage to the bench. I can't think of much else.

I can gaze a Muk and turn powers back on. Oh, never mind... [Eek!]

No, for the umpteenth million time, Igglybuff is still legal! Igglybuff will just vanish for lack of Slowking.

I believe that Cleffa should have been banned with Slowking (or even Sneasel). Cleffa is too overused. Let the good babies take over, like Smoochum.

I wish that there would be a Pokémon game show.

Anyone up for making a TV edition of the Pokémon TCG?
