Friendly and Knowledgeable
I started playing the Pokémon TCG this May. I went looking for some podcasts to learn more about the game and get a picture of the current meta. This podcast is my absolute favorite of the 5 I listen to. Azul and Chip are chill and knowledgeable, and amazingly polite and positive when discussing other players and the game. Some podcasts I have listened to give off the elitist vibe that can really turn off new players who want to one day compete, and these guys do not. I’m glad to have found this great and informative show.
Best Poke-Pod Around
Highly recommend for any TCG enthusiasts. Great content from two excellent players and people!
International Champions ONLY
I only listen to PTCG podcasts by IC winners...which is why I LOVE Uncommon Energy!!
