Card Info

Cost:

x1

Draw three territory cards and destroy units equal to half the total number of fanboys and Heroes on any enemy territory. Shuffle drawn territory cards back into the deck.

Notes

Hidden Power is a strange move. It was first introduced in Pokemon Gold/Silver, and currently, the Unown is the only Pokemon featured in War of the Fanboys that was not one of the original 151. Just like the move, Unown is an equally strange Pokemon, and I spent many battles using Hidden Power over and over again, hoping my Unown would change or learn something else. Alas, it never did, but I remember the Hidden Power attack very distinctly, which was represented by circle of energy balls that would blast out in all directions. In War of the Fanboys, it was envisioned that the energy balls would fly out and strike random territories.

This Unown represents the letter G. The image wasnít chosen because the letter itself has any significance, but because the board behind Unown has carvings of the Pokemonís other forms. This artwork comes from the Neo Destiny set, another of the Pokemon TCG expansions that came out when Wizards of the Coast still produced Pokemon cards. The illustration is by CR CG gangs.

Clarifications



What if there is an odd number of fanboys and/or Heroes on a territory?

War of the Fanboys always rounds up.

Previous Versions

Hidden Power has not changed, though the quantity was cut back from 2 to 1. It was by coincident only that the same card art was chosen.

I would like to use the chance of saying thanks to you for the prososfienal suggestions I have enjoyed visiting your site. I will be looking forward to the commencement of my university research and the general planning would never have been complete without coming over to this site.
