Prerelease Raichu: The Truth, The Whole Truth, And Nothing But The Truth!

Wow.  I'm quoted/referenced on Youtube.

I barely remember any of this event happening. It certainly is nostalgic, though . . .


  1. Hi there Edo,

    This video is mine, I stumbled across from the video stats.
    Glad you enjoyed the nostalgia, and thanks for mentioning the video here.


  2. Been reminiscing this week about the old days of the Pokemon TCG and Yu-Gi-Oh and wondered what ever happened to Edo. Took a while to find your blog but this was worth it for the nostalgia. Amazed how many of these names I recognized after all these years.

    1. Yeah, I'm still above ground.

      Which not really involved in Pokemon and Yugioh anymore, I do go to a local game store, and sometimes find singles I think are interest in the bulk section. Found a couple of reprint foil Imakuni? cards that I picked up.

      Yep, those days are certainly nostalgic.

  3. Hello Edo,

    Read your article of the Tropical Mega Battle 2001 in Hawai. Great story. As a collector I wonder if you still have cards from this tournament. Greetings from Marcel , live in he Netherlands.

    1. Hi Marcel,

      I do have two cards that were in those special decks that were given out to the attendees. They're part of my personal collection.

  4. Hello Edo,

    Great to hear. Would you mind sharing those with me. As a collector it would be nice to know which ones have survived. If it's okay with you can share the pictures by sending to my e-mail :

    Greetings Marcel

  5. Hello Edo,

    Received your e-mail. Thx for this. Hope you have seen my reply.

    Greetings Marcel.
