Hola SixPrizes peeps! Welcome back to another of my articles! After quite the hectic start of the season—with Regionals right after Worlds, and then the back-to-back-to-back Regionals these past few weeks—we are finally in a slower stretch of the season. Shining Legends was released a few weeks ago, and Prereleases for Crimson Invasion started up this past weekend. We now essentially have 2 new sets, which could shake things up for the first International of the season in London.
Let’s start with Shining Legends. The cards from this set look very beautiful and the Shining Pokémon being back is pretty cool. However, the set is quite lackluster in terms of truly playable cards, and I can’t even name 5 off the top of my head that I’m certain will make an impact in Standard or Expanded. The top standout, of course, Zoroark-GX. It is not a secret that Zoroark-GX is dominated upon its release in Japan, however, our Standard format is quite different from theirs.

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!
