Pokemon Trainers, get your Pokeballs ready cuz more Pokemon have arrived for the Pokemon Card Game! The EX Holon Phantoms set brings new Pokemon from a weird place south of Holon city. In this 100 card set you'll be able to find new Pokemon with different energy powers, the new FireMist and FloodRush Theme Decks, Delta Pokemon and more! We have the 411 on these new Pokemon right here.

Pokemon TCG: EX Holon Phantoms Set Suprises

What's wacky about Holon Pokemon is that there are a lot of 'em with two energy types, like Grass/Metal. This gives them strange resistances and lets them do weird stuff to other Pokemon with resistances. There are also a bunch of Deoxys cards, two new Rayquaza cards, Latios, Latias, a Gyarados with a HUGE attack, Holon Trainer cards and more.

Pokemon TCG: FireMist Theme Deck Review

FireMist combines Fire and Fighting Pokemon into a Theme Deck with flaming fists of fury! It sounds awesome, unfortunately it's not so hot. The Pokemon in FloodRush will clobber this deck 90% of the time and, while Latias is powerful, the other Pokemon in this deck aren't that great. Especially Primeape!

FireMist Thumbs Up:

  • Blaziken!
  • Latias!
  • FireMist Thumbs Down:

  • Your Fighting Pokemon are useless against FloodRush.
  • Your Fire Pokemon are useless against FloodRush.
  • Primeape sucks!
  • FireMist Theme Deck Rating:

    Pokemon TCG: FloodRush Theme Deck Review

    FloodRush is another Psychic and Water Pokemon Theme Deck, just like ShadowQuake from the EX Legend Maker set. And, like ShadowQuake, it's the better deck! Not only can all the Pokemon clobber the FireMist Pokemon 90% of the time, they're stronger too. Especially Omanyte, who's a card-drawing maniac! Latios is a bit weak, but the rest of the deck is a rock-solid start for a new Pokemon trainer.

    FloodRush Thumbs Up:

  • Omanyte lets you draw cards like crazy!
  • Oddish, Gloom and Bellossom are a great Pokemon evolution.
  • This deck can easily defeat FireMist.
  • FloodRush Thumbs Down:

  • Latios is a bit weak.
  • Zangoose is weak against Fighting Pokemon.
  • FloodRush Theme Deck Rating:

    In order to make an impressive game do the following. Use anime or COD 3D style graphics. Don't use graphics bellow a Wii U capability  (Especially in a generations with flat screens) Use lots of data such as voice and Music and sound effects. I mean use allot, because you don't want repetitive sound effect playing every 3 seconds. The more VOICE DATA the more cool your game will seem as long as it's GOOD voice acting. Make the multiplayer as innovative as the story. Most developers fail to do this. I mean just look at Halo 4. If your game has good physics and gameplay and challenge and ONLINE PLAY then those are feature you won't be lacking. Also add in your own EXCLUSIVE features that will make a big attraction to your game if it's actually good. Don't forget to advertise the game.
