Pokemon LEGO set Pikachu's Pokemon Center Visit

A Pokemon fan named Savath_Bunny submitted a very awesome idea for an LEGO set which would be Pokemon themed which would be called "Pikachu's Pokemon Center Visit".

"Our heroes have traveled to Kalos City where some much needed rest and relaxation is in store for this group’s Pokémon. Stopping at the local Pokémon Center the team bumps into the knowledgeable Professor Oak. He reminds the friends to always be kind to their Pokémon if they hope to see them evolve someday. After stocking up on essential potions, pokeballs and updating their Pokedex, this band of adventurers are off once again in the pursuit of more gym badges!
Pikachu's Pokemon Center Visit includes the following:
5 Minifigures:
  • Ash Ketchum
  • Misty
  • Brock
  • Nurse Joy
  • Professor Oak
5 Starter Pokémon:
  • Pikachu
  • Squirtle
  • Charmander
  • Bulbasaur
  • Eevee
This Pokémon Center has many fun products for any travelers passing by. Offering an array of pokeballs, healing elixirs and tasty berries, this shop is fully stocked so every trainer's Pokémon can battle with safety and ease. In addition, there is a charming dressing room with an exclusive line of fabulous clothes and cool hats for any trainer to look like a true Kalos City champion. "

At first I was very excited to see a fan building such a well done model of the set of Pokemon. And I thought wouldn't this be a great Christmas gift idea as well. But unfortunately LEGO shot down the idea because of licensing issues with Pokemon. Which is quite sad because this could bring a whole new element to the fun of Pokemon that we don't currently have. I still kind of hope that someone will come up with a similar idea and make a LEGO playset that is Pokemon themed because my kids would totally kill for this type of toy.

The thing that I find odd is that out of all the movies and other themed toys including the Simpsons LEGO has done Pokemon just gets shot down. It also had over 1k supporters for the idea so I would imagine that it would have made quite a bit of money. Especially since the Pokemon world is always getting bigger and they could develop full zones which connect to the gyms and Pokemon centers to form a massive building of LEGO set. Like for example:


How cool would it be if there was a Pokemon set which could extend the whole room and contain every single map location known to the Pokemon world including buildings. I know I would be willing to build something that big just out of enjoyment. I kinda wish I knew a way to actually push and get something like this rethought but at the end of the day I'm nothing more then a lowly blogger. We can still dream and hope that LEGO changes it's mind.

Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire Release today

If you haven't been following up on your Pokemon handheld games today marks the release of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire releasing for Nintendo 3Ds. These games are remakes to the Ruby and Sapphire version but also include a brand new type of evolutions the mega evolutions. Which you might remember from the card game in more recent times. Before picking which game you will end up buying each of the versions of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire contain mega stones which are only obtainable in one of the two games so trading will be a key point of these games.

Review wise the game scored pretty high but some of the critics feel that the game mechanics could use more work. They where slightly disappointed about the massive mounts of HM's needed to play the game and also complained about the imblance favoring water type Pokemon. They have how ever added some of the features that we haven't seen in a long time this includes the secret bases where we could create our own custom base and decorate it.

According to Amazon so many people have been preordering the game that they had to cancel preorders for the game for people who tried to preorder it too late. With that being said it seems the Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will be quite popular for Pokemon games. Especially since Ruby and Sapphire was actually very well recieved and one of the better story's for Pokemon apon release.

Rarity from Wizards of the Coast Pokemon Cards and Nintendo's Pokemon Cards

I started my Pokemon card collecting back during the Wizards of the Coast days of Pokemon. Back when each expansion pack had first edition versions of the cards. And it was always a very high demand for collectors to rush out and go get all the first edition packs. Now a day's Nintendo's Pokemon cards don't come with first edition versions for collectors the only rush I see is just collecting them all without any special versions aside from when there is an error mistake but this happens much less often and we don't get official posts about errors made which kind of makes us wonder whether these are legit or whether people are making fake cards to scam the market.

So with that being said I'm kind of curious what the average collector thinks. Do you think that Wizards of the Coast tailored more to the actual collector I mean so far I have not seen any of the newer Nintendo Expansion card prices really go above $60 dollars which if you look at the Base Set or the Neo Destiny sets most of the first edition cards go for much more then that on average.

I feel like by Nintendo not actually having a first edition expansion it kind of makes collectors kind of feel like the later expansions might not end up being as valuable since they are not being made with the collectors needs in mind. They are printing much more packs then normal making the value of the cards much less. Which I see a whole lot less collectors actually going after them. Yet it is a good thing for the people playing the card game since then they don't have to worry about being forced to play with a first edition card which is worth $100 or more dollars.

The other thing that bugs me about all of the new expansions they haven't seemed to stop printing them. They have much longer printing runs for cards. They keep printing as long as it's selling and many stores end up with expansions that are more then a year old. I remember back when base set was out the first edition's where gone within a very short time and then as soon as they printed the next expansion the last expansion was stopped.

Don't get me wrong I'm not telling you not to collect at all cause at the end of the day you still have to catch them all. I'm more wondering what the community thinks about it and providing just some things I've noticed since Nintendo took Pokemon over. If you would like to leave comments below and tell me how you feel about it. I would be very interested in hearing your oppinions on the matter.

Pokemon card pull

Each expansion from Pokemon card booster packs has a random chance for various rare cards. When we open them we never know exactly what we will end up getting out of a pack but what we can do is figure out the odd's of actually getting a rare or holographic card out of a pack. The earlier releases of Pokemon cards actually contained very high chances of pulling holographic versions of cards out of a pack. While the more recent releases give some reverse holographic cards and such or minor holographic cards while more rare cards seem to have much lower chances to actually pull them out of packs.
