XY-Furious Fists, the 3rd set in the XY series, is finally on its way. If your favorite Pokemon are Fighting-types, then you are going to love this set! Furious Fists brings Lucario-EX (and its Mega Evolution) as well as Hawlucha-EX. Other Fighting-types in the set include Machamp, Tyrantrum, and Hariyama. Plus Fighting-types are easily paired with the Fighting Stadium, Strong Energy, and new trainers like Korrina to maximize their attack potential! For those who aren’t fans of fighting, the set contains a strong mix of of both EX and non-EX pokemon, including Seismatoad, Heracross, and Dragonite (all EX’s). There are over 100 cards in the set, with 5 new EX’s and 3 Mega evolutions.
The Fincastle Gym’s home prerelease will be this Sunday at the Fincastle Library. Registration is from 12:00 to 1 PM with play beginning shortly after. For anyone that has not attended a prerelease, here’s the short version of how these events go. You receive 6 booster packs, from which you will make a 40 cards deck (energy provided by the organizer). We will play a short (3 or 4 round) tournament with these decks just for fun. At the end of the event, you receive 2 additional booster packs. For anyone new to the game, these events are a great way to learn to play and a great way to start a collection and begin to build decks of your own. Be sure to stick around for league play at our regular time (3pm-530p).
For a full list of Furious Fists events, check out the “Upcoming Events Details” tab at the top of the page. Entry for all the events is $30. If you have any questions about these events or anything else pokemon/league-related, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us on Facebook (Fincastle Pokemon). Come join us and get the newest set weeks before its release in stores. See you at the Gym!
