Hi, eViLfRoStY here again. I had been a very active
Pokemon TCG player, and noticed many of the problems with it. When HP came out,
I thought it would be the same. Boy was I wrong. Here is my comparision of
the HP CCG and the Pokemon TCG.
1: Coin Flips
HP: OMG!!! NO COIN FLIPS!!! The only flip in the
game is to decide who goes first. That's it!! A lot more strategy and less luck
Pokemon: Everything revoles around flips. Flips
decide who wins. Can I get their hand down to nothing turn 1? Will my Sneasel
rip through everyone if I get lots of Heads? Not good.
2: Game Time
HP: WOW!! A longer game. No freakin first turn
wins. Everyone has a chance. A definate improvement.
Pokemon. If you have one basic and dont get
anything goin, your history.
HP: Only 2 actions a turn. Great! Everyone has a
chance to play there cards and cant get killed by someone playing a ton of
lessons one turn, then playing an enormous amount of spells to win.
Pokemon: Unlimited except for Energies. As many
Trainers as you want. Not good for the other guy.
As you can see, HP has many better sides, mostly in
making the game funner for both people.
