    That new rad hangout.
    I'd like to know the best way to get into the tcg again, last time I did something POP related was when I was for the hg/ss prerelease. The cheapest way would be preferred, as I'm saving up for my gaming pc upgrade, I have hundreds of cards from gen 4 and back, but nothing recent, can I use those in tournaments?

    I dont think you can use your old cards in official tournaments as those have been cycled out.

    ^What he said. The oldest cards you can use now are from the BW base sets. Not sure about the cheapest way back in since you'll need to build your deck from scratch. That said, many of the powerhouse cards are available in tins which drastically reduce the price.
