Hello again, everyone!
It has been quite a while since I have written for SixPrizes [from the Editor: his last article was published just over four years ago, in Dec ’14], but I am glad to have the opportunity to be back!
Since this is my first article here in quite a long time, I’d like to start with a brief introduction of myself. I have been playing the Pokémon TCG since its debut in 1998. Some of my notable accomplishments include:
- World Championships Competitor 2004–11
- Finalist, 2004 World Championships
- 2007 United States National Champion
- 2002 Professor Champion
- 2× Regional Champion
- Being A Pretty Swell Guy
[Editor again: Also see Chris’ “Meet the Staff” interview from years ago to learn even more Fun Facts about Fulop.]
I took a hiatus from the game after the 2011 World Championships to focus on playing Magic: The Gathering, managing to qualify for their Pro Tour, before eventually settling in on playing both games simultaneously. This made it pretty difficult to attend enough events over the span of a season to get my Worlds invite each year, but this year I’ve focused on Pokémon exclusively and currently sit at 222 Championship Points, despite only attending events within driving distance. All of these points have been earned by playing various builds of Malamar, an archetype I feel extremely comfortable with.
- The OG: Roanoke’s Ultra Necrozma (SUM–LOT)
- The Evolution of Malamar
- Anyways: Team Up & Malamar!
