starting to write info here, this will all be organized and made pretty later

On March 29th, 2016, the PTCGO developers announced the sunset of the Unlimited ladder, which had become nothing but a toxic wasteland of FTK Shiftry combo decks following the release of XY Ancient Origins and the introduction of Forest of Giant Plants. To fill the shoes of this retired format, and to give the leftover HeartGold and SoulSilver era cards a purpose, the Legacy format was created. This format lasted for the remainder of PTCGO's lifespan and included all 17 combined HGSS and BW sets. With PTCGO's eventual sunset and PTCGL dropping support for pre-Black & White cards (and as of the time of writing, still hasn't actually implemented any of the promised BW cards lol), Legacy is unfortunately no longer supported in an official capacity. This site exists to document new & old decklists, ways to play, the history of the format, as well as provide detailed articles and breakdowns of individual cards, matchups, and decks.
