Pokémon get stronger; compare Hitmonchan (Base Set) to Lucario EX (Furious Fists).

 

However, Trainer cards get weaker. Compare Mr. Briney's Compassion (EX Dragon) to AZ (Phantom Forces), or Gust of Wind with Lysandre.

Eternal formats are not very popular at all though afaik, so power creep isn't important. You *need* to buy the new cards to compete in Standard tournaments.

Pokemon, like Magic, bans sets in a yearly rotation, so power creep is mostly irrelevant outside of what occurs over the course of a year

They're probably looking at their base set cards and wondering why they suck

 

the real beef people seem to have is making something broken then 'patching' it next set so you're bouncing through a few decks potentially

Older formats of ygo were great

Troop dup scoop and cyber Stein were the beginning of the end

pokemon power creep is fucking horrid.

 

SP pokemon were ridiculous as basics, even worse with Lv X on top (120hp)

 

then EX (180hp)

 

then then GX (180hp with derpy attacks that is meant to provoke patience but people just don't think about it and go balls out)

 

now tags (270hp basic are you fucking kidding me)

I have just downloaded 30ish episodes of the ygo anime, only the best parts and make no apologies for this:

 

Yugi vs pegasus (3 eps... probably the only good 3 of duelist kingdom)

 

Obelisk intro (s2e5)

Double duel yogi Kaiba (s2 e21 to 24)

Bakura vs bones (s2 e30)

 

S3 e14 to 21 (big 5 merger and the Noah duel cos I loved the comeback)

 

Yugi vs kaiba battle city semi finals (the best fucking part of the whole anime imo these 6 eps were godly)

 

Yugi vs Rafael (both duels s4)

God cards kick the shit out of the great leviathan episode

 

The final duel yugi vs yugi 

 

 

 

Pretty sure that's a good highlights reel?

I guess hat tip to the first yugi vs kaiba duel but it's such a rudimentary intro (oh this is attack mode so Iose life points lol!) That even the lines "my grandfathers deck has no pathetic cards" and "EXODIA OBLITERATE" dont really save it
