What’s up, everyone! I think it has been exactly a month since I was with you, and what a month it’s been. My last article, the last in our marathon blitz, talked about Greninja, and why I thought it was a good play for Nationals. It was so good, in fact, that I played it at Nats, and then whiffed my invite — bummer!
Worlds is almost upon us, and I’m sure you’ve read some of the awesome pieces put out by our other writers. This past Saturday was the first time I touched any Pokémon cards in any meaningful way since Round 9 of NAIC, so I have literally nothing to offer you in terms of value on that front. Quite frankly, the only thought I’ve dedicated to Worlds is with regards to which top player I plan to beg for a list to play at the Anaheim Open, if I end up going.
The nature of this piece will be a little more somber than most of the articles I’ve written. I’d like to shed some light on the recent changes to the Expanded ban list, touch up on my initial findings from playing some BKT-on, and close with a reflection on my season and why it was such a tremendous disappointment.

SixPrizes has been a phenomenal resource for me from the very beginning. Shortly after I started, I became a subscriber, and being able to partake in all the knowledge a lot of the best veteran players had to share helped me learn and grow as a player. I still read to this day so I can keep up with other players’ thoughts and ideas to help me stay on top of my game!
