10,733 Different Cards to Own

Recommended Posts

RobRatt

As of April 1st, 2019:
 
10,733 Different Cards to Own (the top possible).
 
If anyone is curious about their Collection Statistics, the stat that says "Different Cards Owned" would top out at 10,733 (at least until the next set or more promos come out).  This includes all sets through Team Up and the promo set Detective Pikachu, and all types of cards (regular, reverse foil, promos, secret rare, trainers, energy, etc.)

But for example, if you have 8,000 Different Cards Owned...

10,733 minus 8,000 equals 2,733 to go.


8,000 divided by 10,733 equals 75% complete.
 



NOTE:  If you've got a slightly different count (very close, but not exact), there's a glitch in the servers that we've discovered.  The game statistic "Different Cards Owned" will keep track of cards that you previously owned, but may have traded away (it doesn't subtract them).  To get an accurate number you need to replace those cards (it won't count them a second time).  See post #34 for details.
 
Set Completions:  We also tested this feature.  Very similar to the "DCO Stat," once you've completed a set (in Collection Stats), that set's symbol remains Complete even if you trade some of the cards away.  See post #77 for details.
 



Theme Decks:  In case anyone is curious (as of February 1st, 2019) there are 103 Theme Decks that are (or have been) in the game.  78 of them come from released sets, and are currently available from the in-game Shop.  There's a thread about this, floating further down the forums, if you're interested.

For a very long time, these 12 Promo cards appeared in the game, and were considered "unobtainable" (and not tradable).  They were never released virtually.  With the version 2.59 update, these 12 cards were removed from the Online game entirely (December 11, 2018).

 

Elgyem BW55
Espeon BW92
Flareon BW88
Glaceon BW90
Jigglypuff BW65
Jolteon BW91
Keldeo BW60
Leafeon BW87
Lillipup BW52
Meowth BW35
Scraggy BW25
Vaporeon BW99

Hello RobRatt

 

I think the total should be 8788 (If i m not mistaken)

 

There are few cards that appear in ur "not owned" collection, however they are unobtainable:

Druddigon 17/20, 2nd Art

BW25 Scraggy (Shard Art)
BW35 Meowth
BW52 Lillipup
BW55 Elgyem
BW60 Keldeo
BW65 Jigglypuff
BW87 Leafeon
BW88 Flareon
BW89 Vaporeon
BW90 Glaceon
BW91 Jolteon
BW92 Espeon

 

dont know if this is a gem promo or not

BW54 Pikachu (Holo Art), It is listed in TOP Cut as unobtainable but in ou7c4st as gem.

@magicalkobra, thank you for taking the time to write such a helpful reply.

 

And yes, you're absolutely right, the number is lower if you take into account the "unobtainable" cards.

 

In your list of unobtainable cards, you should know that Pikachu BW promo is available (aka Gem).  It'd odd that Top Cut would show it as unobtainable, and must be an oversight, because Matthew69 has one in his binder for trade.  I verified this with another friend who has one, just to be sure.

 

And that Druddigon 2nd art (with the Dragon Vault logo) is also available now.  There was a bug/glitch in the game for a while, after they added some alternate cards, but it is tradable.  I have one that I got in Public for just 2 or 3 packs.

I modified the original post, and the title, to 8,801 Different Cards Owned.

 

This amount includes all of the "unobtainable cards" that magicalkobra66 mentioned above.  I'm holding out hope that these BW promos will be added to the Shop or something.  Either way, they still show in the game, and I'm assuming that some people may/must have them, even if they're trade-locked versions.

 

The reason for lowering the overall amount?? ...With today's update, a special foil Pokémon Center was deleted from the game and/or merged with that set's Reverse Foil version.  I don't know if this is a bug, or was intended, but it's better to be accurate with today's count, and readjust if this card comes back into our collections.

Hello friends,

 

The thing to know, is that the number continues to change!

 

The game currently doesn't do a great job of presenting the number of cards in the game.  We know that customers would like to have more statistics for collection.  Improving this aspect of the game is not currently a big priority for the team.  We do have it on the list, but no guarantees as to when, or if, improvements on this front would be made. 

 

With the continuous nature of cards going into the system, the total number is constantly moving and not something we currently maintain on a rigorous, public ready way.  All that is to say, I don't have solid numbers for you, or to verify what you have worked out.   

 

I hope that helps!

-Alex

They've added another recent League Promo to the game (Registeel, CIN 68), so the overall count (of possible Different Cards Owned) is 8,802, as of this date.  This includes the dozen or more cards that most players consider "unobtainable."

 

P.S.  Happy New Years everyone.  :)

Hey @tarif, I'm not sure if I can give you more insight on Collection Stats.  I'm relying on the limited info the game shows.  I've only posted this Total so players don't have to count hundreds of their cards, trying to guess.

 

Looking at two collections over 99% (mine & my son's), we've come up with the same number for both.  It's simple really, and I don't know how else to come up with a total.  In both cases, I looked at our Collection Stats, for "Different Cards Owned."  And then manually counted how many we're missing (checkmark the Show Not Owned box).  Since we're missing only one Trainer, and no Energy, it was easy to count just the Pokemon.

 

Basically...

 

(Different Cards Owned, in Stats) + (Cards Not Owned) = (Total Available)

 

If you have the time, I'd be curious if you come up with the same number.  Fairly certain you don't have too many to count. :)

They've recently added another six cards to the game, so the total count (of possible Different Cards Owned) is 8,808, as of this date.  Again, this includes the dozen or more cards that most players consider "unobtainable."

 

Here are the new additions...

 

Alolan Dugtrio, SUM 87 (Foil, from a new 2-pack Blister)
Alolan Golem, GRI 42 (Foil, from a new 2-pack Blister)
Alolan Muk, SUM 58 (Foil, from a new 2-pack Blister)
Guzzlord-GX, CIN 63a (Alternate A, from Guzzlord-GX Promo Box)
Pikachu, SLG 28 (Foil, from Raichu-GX Promo Box)
Raichu-GX, Promo SM90 (Full-Art, from Raichu-GX Promo Box)

 

NOTE:  The new 2-pack Blister includes all 3 cards, Alolan Dugtrio, Golem, and Muk.

 

NOTE:  A new Gold Pixel Raichu Coin also comes in the Raichu-GX Promo Box

^^ This is a great idea.

 

Alternately, would you consider placing these "unobtainable" cards in the Shop from time to time?  Please.  Pretty please, with sugar on top.

What is the release date for the new 2-pack Blister? Are they avaible now in real life?

The 2 promo boxes were released yesterday, but I'm not sure about general distribution for that blister pack.

 

I haven't Googled it, but I know it's currently available at Pokémon Center for $10.

Wow, 8,808 is a huge number of cards!

 

RobRatt, it looks like you have been keeping this up to date. Do you intend to update the count with every new release?

Yes, I had planned to.  Of course, there'll be a lag time of a week or two, in order to fill the next set after it's released.

 

I'm holding out hope that the game client will do this simple math one of these days. :cool:

A new Marshadow Promo (SM93) was added to the game.  It comes from a Shining Legends Pin Collection Box, which includes 3 SLG packs, the Promo card, and a Marshadow Pin.  I'm not 100% sure about general release date, but I think it is today.  It's already available at Pokémon Center.
