    RA > Regular art: The "normal" ones. The lower number in the set for a card. Lower price. PR > Promo. PR-set number. In most cases another RA. FA > Full art: A special draw taking up the whole card. Middle set number. Middle pirce. SV > Shiny vault: Usually the FA draw but the pokémon is the Shiny version. Special subset number starting SV. Same price as FA or a bit more. AA > Alternative art: An alternate draw, looking usually like a painting. Usually next number after FA in a set. In a lot of cases, the most expensive version. Promos are not exactly AA and they are usually as cheap as the RA. RR > Rainbow rare (it's a type of SR): Usually the FA draw not in colours but rainbow looking. The upper number in a set. Usually expensive than FA and a bit less or the same as AA. If no AA for a card, this is the expensive one. SR > Secret rare: The golden cards (may be the draw, the whole card or the borders). Examples: Golisopod GX RA Burning Shadows 17 PR-SM 62 FA BUS 129 SV BUS SV 48 RR 148 This is the SR, being a RR Examples with Ultra Necrozma GX RA Forbidden light 95 PR-SM 126 FA FLi 127 RR FLi 140 SR Dragon Majesty 48 Examples with RowleGuttor GX RA Unified minds 1 FA UNM 214 AA UNM 215 RR UNM 237 For more AA versiones check Arceus & Dialga & Palkia or Moltres & Zapdos and Articuno cards (in this last, the Promo is an AA, check differences with other "regular" promos. SR trainers: Ultra ball Plasma Freeze 122 and Sun and Moon 161. Switch Primal clash 161 and Sun and Moon 160. Etcetera. Look also for Silvally GX in Collection, tick also Show not owned, and you'll see all different versions. CEC 227 is an AA. Or Vileplume GX, there's no FA but CEC 211 is an AA. Etcetera. Here you have and old thread with some more acronyms: https://forums.pokemontcg.com/topic/56008-help-with-acronyms/#entry590818 (You can add it to Favourites in your browser to find it and check it often if desire but you shouldn't revive the tread with a reply because forum rules) 😉

    That feature already exists. What you do is right-click the evolved Pokémon, then click the arrows beside the card to see the lower stages, as well as any other cards attached to the Pokémon.

    Zamazenta V for V Max (but not for V). Not sure if I understood well but I have to say Keldeo lost its power long ago. Considering Standard format is ruled by Zacian/ADP, BDIF (14/24 TOP8 in last 3 big tournaments). Second is Mew3 (just 1 but won Australia's regional) and can wear a Hood (I think it bypass Keldeo this way, although I always doubt about what exactly the hood do) and can copy attacks that "Ignore all the effects"... And considering 1 prize decks like Baby Blace (7/24 TOP8 ) and Obstagoon (not the bigger tournament but Won Puerto Rico), etcetera. Keldeo died long long ago and bigger prove is went down to 2 packs if you get it at its "expensive" prize. Everyone is getting rid of all the GX/EX based cards (pokémon with abilities to protect against or hitting harder to, items, stadiums...). Low prices tho, no one is really interested in them anymore. Vs are the present and future.

    Unfortunately, there's no such tool or possibility in this moment. Only you could do is record or stream your games with an external program or platform where they can be available to review after. I always thought a "replay game by inserting the log" feature would be extremely cool. Would be very useful to review games when someone comes to forums saying there's a bug, We could replay the game to see all moves and cards instead of checking line by line and recreate the game in our heads, Also nice to replay/store own games in log form, (so they don't need to store any data in their servers), as you want to do. I think that's probably a tool that Support could have to review possible bugs.

    I can't help you that much with your price checks. You could check out @ChawkyV's Price Guide thread if you haven't yet. You might find some information there. However, I haven't checked it in awhile. With your packs, I would trade for some UNB, but still keep some SW&SH. That's what I am going to do anyway. I always like to have the newest set, and the most valuable set at the same time XD. UNB will hold its value for awhile. I feel like SW&SH will start to slip before UNB, but that's just my prediction. It happened to the S&M base set, but I don't feel that that base set, is as good as the SW&SH base. So in the end, I don't really know. Just my thoughts XD.

    INTRODUCTION Ah, the 90's. At the start of the decade, it was all board games, and technology. These two things were some of the most popular sources of entertainment. But, in August of 1993, behold Magic: The Gathering. The world was taken by storm. People loved the concept and many companies sought out to replicate Magic in their own way. Many other TCGS' were created at this time that didn't last long due to "MTG" being the "the one to get". This still stands to this day for the most part. However, a couple of TCGS ' that were released not long after MTG have survived to this day. One of those being Pokemon mainly due to the success of their video game franchise. Batches of people really enjoyed Pokemon as well, but MTG was still the king. Since then though, many have stopped playing MTG competitively to come play Pokemon for reasons of their own. Yes playing a TCG is not always an easy task. But here, you can learn about the best of the best card-wise for the "PTCG". As of the 2020 standard format, the cards listed on this post will be the "staple" cards with a few exceptions. If you are unaware of what a staple card is, it is in short a card to use in almost every single one of your decks regardless of the goals of your deck etc. So to summarize, this isn't a Deck building guide, it is essentially a Deck template if you will. WHAT IS A DECK TEMPLATE? In the "PTCG" a Deck template is a set of cards that you want to consider using some of in every deck. Start by putting the template/staple cards in your deck and adding/subtracting the amount of copies that you use of each card so that it fits you and your deck. But remember to always have some of the staples in every single one of your decks (more info on this as you read). WHY WOULD YOU USE A DECK TEMPLATE? A deck template provides a starting point for each and every one of your decks. If you are stuck and don't know where to start, then throw together this template, or whatever other one that suites you the best. If you are an experienced player, there isn't much need for one, unless you enjoy having the comfort of a starting point (I know I do myself). THE STAPLE CARDS OF THE CURRENT STANDARD FORMAT\TEMPLATE (2020) KEY: (#-#)= Amount of copies to play. Note Max=4 NOTE #1: I describe these cards in my own way. I don't copy word for word what the actual card says. NOTE #2: All of the cards below are most of the cards that you want to use in your deck template. I don't really mention "template" from this point on. NOTE #3: The average prices of the cards are updated every 3 weeks to a month. POKEMON 1. (1-3) Jirachi (Team Up): With this card we only focus on one thing, and that's it's ability. It allows you to once during your turn, look at the top 5 cards of your deck and put any trainer card you find there into your hand with the only downside having to take the asleep contidition. AVERAGE PRICE: $24 2. (0-3) Dedenne GX (Unbroken Bonds): As with Jirachi, we only focus on one thing here, and that is again the ability. It allows you to once during your turn, when you play a Dedenne GX from your hand onto your bench, discard your hand and draw 6 cards. AVERAGE PRICE: $34 TRAINERS 1. (1-4) Cynthia (Ultra Prism & Hidden Fates). The effect simply reads, shuffle your hand into your deck and draw 6 cards. AVERAGE PRICE: $1 2. (1-4) Professor's Research (Sword and Shield). Discard your hand and draw 7 cards. That's all. AVERAGE PRICE: $4 3. (1-3) Marnie (Sword and Shield). Each player shuffles their HAND, and puts it on the bottom of their deck. You (as in the person who played the card) draw 5 cards and your opponent draws 4. Shuffle your deck afterward (same for opponent). AVERAGE PRICE: $4 4. (1-4) Quick Ball (Sword and Shield). If you discard a card from your hand, you can search your deck for a basic Pokemon and put it into your hand. Shuffle your deck afterwards. AVERAGE PRICE: $1 5. (2-4) Custom Catcher (Lost Thunder). You may play up to 2 Custom Catcher at once. If you played 1, you get to draw cards until you have 3 in your hand. If you played 2 at once, you can switch one of your opponent's benched Pokemon with their active Pokemon. AVERAGE PRICE: $5 WHY WE USE THESE CARDS SHORT ANSWER: SYNERGY LONG ANSWER: READ ON Lets say that you're a beginner player, and you throw together something like this. EXAMPLE #1- Draw Support NOTE: THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE DECK. EXPANDED CARDS INCLUDED AS WELL 1-(Unified Minds) Mewtwo and Mew Tag Team GX 1-(Hidden Fates NOT SHINY) Charizard GX 1-(Burning Shadows) Kiawe 4 Fire energy You wanted Charizard GX because he is powerful and does a lot of damage! You said to yourself while you were making this, "why would I want to use this Professor's Research? I work hard so that every card in this "deck" has a point only to have to discard them?""Never." You get in the match and put Mewtwo and Mew Tag Team GX in the active slot. You draw a Kiawe and load up Mewtwo and Mew. It gets back to your turn and you draw your Charizard GX. You're thinking "Sweet, I'm gonna win now!" But you realize that you have no fire energy left to attach to it. You think, "Well that's okay, I'll just discard it and use Mewtwo and Mew's ability to attack with it. Wait, I didn't put any discarding material in my deck did I..." This can happen very often to newer players. Discarding even helps getting rid of cards that you don't NEED anymore etc. Quick Ball is also used to discard, but if course, it's main intent is to get you a basic Pokemon. Not quite as good as Ultra Ball, but is going to have to work. Professor's Research= Use. Dedenne GX= Use. Quick Ball= Use. EXAMPLE #2- Disruption & handling your tools You have a hand of cards and you don't want to discard them, but there is a card that you really need. Well you finally put a Professor's Research into your deck and it is currently in your hand. You use an Acro Bike and grab a Cynthia. You see that you can now possibly get the card you need without having to discard your other cards! Or maybe there is a card that you know your opponent has that will win them the game on their next turn it you don't do something. However, you again need a card. So, you play a Marnie, get rid of your opponents key card, and get your key card! Cynthia= Use. Marnie= Use. EXAMPLE #3- Gusting Your opponent is going to win the game if you don't find a way to get their Charizard GX out of the active slot and you must have an energy to knock-out their weakened Mewtwo and Mew GX. So let's just happen to say that you have 3 Custom Catchers in your hand. You play 1 to draw up to 3 cards and you get your energy. Then, a little later in your turn, you play the two Custom Catchers left in your hand and bring up your opponents Mewtwo and Mew GX! "Gusting" as it is called is very clutch. These kind of cards can be underestimated by new players because they really just want to hit hard on their opponents active Pokemon. But gusting is one of the most useful abilities as it can let you make quick work of one of your opponent 's key Pokemon. With Custom Catcher you could even draw up to 3 if you have to like I mentioned. Sun and Moon base Oranguru is still lurking... Custom Catcher= Use. If you have read all of this so far, then there is not reason to doubt the Jirachi. Don't like the fact that you are put to sleep when you use the ability? Use Escape Board etc. The synergy is there with this card. A great card when setting up which is obviously one of the key parts of a match. A great card to flow through your deck, and so much more. The only downside with this card that's not really related to its abilities as a card, is its price. Not very cheap realistically or on the "PTCGO" for a 70 hp basic. Thank you for reading. Brief notes about this post are listed below. Feel free to ask if you have any questions. ALWAYS KEEP IN MIND THAT THE SITUATIONS THAT I CAME UP WITH FOR THE EXAMPLES AREN'T USUALLY GOING TO HAPPEN IN THAT WAY, ESPECIALLY THE CUSTOM CATCHER ONE. Now I am aware that I didn't include Ultra Ball and some other pretty good cards. But I am really looking towards the future with this thread. Always remember that this is a WIP (Work In Progress). Updates will come as deemed necessary.

    S'okay; being a moderator someplace else doesn't make me an unquestionable authority, just explaining why I had experience vetting posts to see if they're 'bot spam or not. I mean, I already goofed; I am currently only a moderator at one other website. I've been a moderator a few other places, but those didn't end well. XD The current one is purely voluntary, on a nearly dead non-Pokémon forum. I basically get to clean up after 'bots and try - every now and then - to get a conversation going. XP Shifting gears slightly While I'm glad this one actually seems to be posting on topic, who knows how much of that was intentional. Maybe the "plagiarism" was actually supposed to direct folks to the site where the article originated, but it failed because of the various safeguards in place for the PTCGO forums, like no images or letting folks link off site. Or it could just be a test run for one that will be a lot less subtle. XP

    It appears to be a copy/paste from an article that appeared on another website back in 2015. Which explains why it talks about how the PTCG is nearly 20 years old when it is actually over 20 years old in most markets. Or how the wording acts like there are images to reference... because there were images to help explain things in the original article. Or how it links to a copy of the rule book from 2015. XD Since we can't link off-site, just plug the first paragraph into the search engine of your choice to find the original. As such, @sukarno is likely a bot.

    Hello guys, it's been a while since the last time I've shown my face around here xd I was feeling nostalgic and redownloaded the game today, but I'm feeling a bit lost since it's been a little over 1 year since I last played. Any general advise for the current meta is appreciated, but a few specific things I wanted to ask about are the following: 1)I'll probably start with Theme Decks for a while to warm up. What are the best Theme Decks I can play currently? I already bought one of each of the ones that were released while I was gone (was sitting on quite a few tokens), but so far I've only tried out the new Cinderace Deck. It feels pretty good and it's fun to play. Aside from the new decks, are some of the old juggernauts like Blazing Volcano still good? 2)Have there been any major changes in the past year? From what I can tell, not being able to use Supporters on turn 1 seems to be the biggest one. Other than that I'm completely in the dark. 3)Is Night March still viable in Expanded? I used to love that deck so I'd like to update it and play it once more. I'm just a bit afraid that with 300+ HP cards being commonplace now it might be too hard to reliably get 1-2 hit KOs. A lot of those give 3 prizes so I have hope, but I'd like to hear first other's opinion on whether the deck can still be played. On that note, are there any new additions should consider adding to the deck? 4)What other decks would be good to consider using? I'm mostly an Expanded player, but I could get into Standard too. I still have all of my collection from 1 year ago, but I'll probably have to stock on new cards. I have a 12 LOT and 12 TUP packs left. Dunno how much they're worth nowadays, but that's my budget for buying new cards. Hope you guys are all doing well, and many thanks in advance for any advise you can give me

    As some trainers told you in your previous thread, around 7 packs would be the fastest way to get it. If you don't have packs, I suggest you win them in Events. If you don't have a good enough Standard or Expanded deck as to win in Events, play them Theme with Towering heights or Rillaboom's or any other of the high tier Theme decks.Chances to be at least 3rd-4thand get some packs are very high. Also if you would list here some of the cards you are offering for trade, would be easier. As you see, coming and say "add me in game" and "cards for trade" doesn't make anyone interest. It's going to game, send friend request, wait to be accepted, check what you have, wait for you to talk (or not), if anyhitng interesting send an offer, wait for it to be accepted or countered... You will achieve the trade if you explain here what you offer or if you include the word "packs", what ones and how much of them. And don't forget public trades. Mew3 is not the most expensive of the cards. If you play a bit daily, it's easy to get enough to get a card in that price range.

    Muscle band, Fighting fury belt and Choice band are limited to the Expanded format. Also Dark claw and Silver bangle. Vitality band is only for Standard where you don't have any of the above. The other damage increaser tools for Standard are Beastite and Hustle belt only if I remember properly.

    I didn’t think my only response would be a downvote. Seriously, with no explanation as to why, how is that helpful? Who even does that? Anyway, if anyone does come here and read this, I’m still curious and looking for any helpful info. Thanks!!!

    I think it would be really great, and such a big improvement to be able to mark different versions of a card you're willing to trade for. If I have a Regirock in Reverse Holofoil, and both types of Regular Holofoil (the dots and the streaked) and I'm willing to trade any of them, I should be able to mark that. On the other hand, but similarly, its frustrating to see a trade for Reverse Holo, when I have the same card I'd be willing to trade in Regular Holofoil, but there is not way for users to communicate that to each other. This inability to mark multiple cards means wasted time, and wasted coins.

    1) Rillaboom - Towering heights - Inteleon are the best theme, no doubt. Although I haven't play Cinderace's, I keep hearing that all 3 last Theme are very good and I agree although I can't tell from own experience about the fire one. Soaring storm is being played a lot too and although a bit clunky at the start, if you success to set up, it's absolutely unstoppable there onwards. Relentless flame is just good as it's Blazing volcano but I consistently won with Rillaboom against Charizard (yes, having weakness). In addition I've been playing Charizard's lately (for a challenge) and I lost hard against almost everything including Rillaboom. Towering heights became the top 1 of SUM era before SSH and this didn't changed (for SUM era decks) Now it have the handicap of some pokémon being weak to Rillaboom's, tho a Top deck still. Unseen depths was also widely used and beat RF most of the times. All in all I wouldn't say Relentless flame is even tier 1 anymore as it lost its status a lot before SSH was released. If I would be returning, I would get one of the SSH's to get some staple trainers for custom (starting getting 3 P research from each). 2) You have been linked to official site above. For the rest, just need to start thinking different. I found myself thinking now and then while opponent is yet doing mulligans or benching basics at the start of the game: OK, this my starter, float there, ball to pokémon, then (insert Supporter in hand's name here) to find energy/item/whatever and after I switch... Turn starts: Float, ball...can't do anything else, d'oh! This also affects the way of build decks. Dedenne-GX, Jirachi TEU and in expanded Shaymin EX are all high desired cards and prices teamrocketed "to the sky". On the other side Lele GX went down hard. 3) Yes. Look for ADP/Night march lists. I think is the most reliable version right now iMmodestO. ADP is another card you can use, specially in Expanded with the DDE, in 87% (just invented but high % haha) of the decks. Vs and VMax are not yet widely instated in Expanded. You'll find some Snorlax VM, Meowth VM and Lapras VM decks now and then along with Zacian/ADP (this both in Expanded and Standard). Be warn when building that Great catcher is only for GX and EX (yet can catch Shaymin/Dedenne), Choice band is too, and you'll find now and then with it in hand without being able to catch a V that would win you the game. FFB is yet good and Muscle band is back (or should be!) 4) If you had PikaKrom, this is Meta again in both formats. Ultra Necrozma/Garbodor/(ADP) is very powerful at low cost. Probably my fav expanded deck. Vs are not very expensive yet. 2/3 packs as much all of them (but Zacian). For standard Baby Blacephalon is also very good. Blacephalon GX can be played again with little changes. Expanded TinaChomp with Roxie is not expensive and is funny. There are lots of decks around the UNB Weezings Mew-bility box (FAC baby Mew) is being seen lately. Gardeveon/Tisse is veery good. As long you don't face Zacian it's very hard to beat and you benefit from KOing ADPs. Against Zacian tho it's an autoloss no matter what, so it just (almost) disappeared from the format.I played it lately (for a challenge) for first time and got so many joy with it. Don't saying it's the best choice right now but I would wish I have been able to build it before when it rocked even harder! I'd say LOT is 0'5/0'66. TEU tho is 075 at least. Jirachi and PikaKroms are in there so it's being traded easy. SSH, UNB and TEU seems to be the most valuable right now (along with PLF and any Expanded pack containing an Ace spec, specially PLS and BCR, you know why) . Welcome back, have fun. Edited: Bold, to be clearer.

    Hello moderators and developers, English is not my first language so sorry for any mistake I will make. I'm a Pokèmon fan since the 1st generation.I've never been to a live event but here I am still playing your online game. Today I want ask you a very important question even if I already know the answer.The question is simple,just 3 letters. Why no ranked games in 2020? Why no elo system with rank divisions in 2020? Why trading section is taking forever even with a ssd in 2020? Why the client feels like a warcraft 3 menu in 2020? Let's be honest with each other for one moments,facts prove that you are if not the best,one of the best developers team in the history. This means that any improvement we could ever write in this section is pointless because you already know everything from decades but you are letting this game be in this currently state purposely. I don't understand whoever says that you are doing that to preserve people interest in live events but come on,live card game players and online gamers are 2 different worlds,for sure a lot of people do both but most of us are actually playing the online game only while,no matter what,your live events were,are and will be always crowded. As I said,I've never been to a live event but here I am still playing your online game and spending moeny for theat,so why don't you just give it a try? Why do you let 3rd people making money with your products? We all know what is going on with codes,I don't have accurate stats to give you a % but if we use the common sense how many players are actually buying a physical pack for the online code and how many are just buying the codes online for a cheap price? If that was in the shop,imagine how much money you could have back instead of letting 3rd party people abusing the system and making money with something owned by you. Last sentence,you need 1 update just 1 and there will be no Hearthstone,Magic,Gwent,Yu Gi Oh or whatever and we ALL KNOW THAT. I hope you will not take it as flame because it's not,it's just some sadness going around.

    Generally speaking, if you need to evolve your pokémon, better go first to bench some basics and evolve in your second turn. If your deck can attack 1st turn, go second, as being able to use a Supporter guarantees more success finding every piece you need to attack. But at the end it depends on every deck so there's not a rule you can always use.

    Hi, I would like to know if it would be possible to implement a "not for trade" button in the Pokemon Online TCG. This should be used to remove trade offers with cards that I use in my deck and other cards that I don't want to trade from public offers. I think it's really annoying if every second or third trader offer is with cards I don't want to trade.

    Posting a trade costs coins, as you said. Those coins are refunded if the trade is accepted, but not if the time on it expires. This is to help prevent trade spam. Accepting a trade is free. There is a forum here called "In-Game Item Exchange," and you can also try to arrange trades in the in-game chat.

    Hex Maniac could return as a prism star card. This would address the concern of it being used with VS seeker to indefinitely shut down abilities, but still give players a round to get out from under a disadvantaged position

    I am from Chile indeed xD But I dunno, even though we're both native Spanish speakers I guess it's just natural that most conversations in here are had in English regardless. I guess it's good practice too since I don't get much of a chance to use my Enlgish IRL anymore. I could try just 1 ADP and see how it goes. I'll be harder to guarantee a T1 ADP play, but you're right in that I could just play normally and I'd probably still do fine. That'd leave some more space for techs. Interestingly enough, even though I've run into other ADP decks, I've yet to see a single one that goes aggressively for the T1 Altered Creation. That I always chose to go 2nd if I win the coin flip is probably part of the reason, but still. I could still see Ranger being useful against Noivern though (and Mew3 box that has access to its attacks), since being locked out of Special Energies in this deck is gg.

    As of this moment, SwSh is the most stable and sought after pack (the standard 1:1) due to it being the first pack of a new era, the same thing happened with XY base and SM base when they were first released, however unlike XY base and sort of like SM base, SwSh has some cards of great value (Zacian V, Quick Ball SR, Marnie FA, Professor Research FA) so instead of saying "it will drop in value when 2-3 V sets come out" i honestly think it will keep its value as long as Zacian V and Quick Ball remain relevant (which is gonna be ALWAYS), however when Rebel Crash comes out (which is an inferior set to SwSh if we're being honest) you will see the demand for SwSh drop a little for about 2-3 weeks then it'll come back As for older packs which still hold value, Unbroken Bonds (UNB) is still almost as valuable as SwSh (due to Dedenne GX like you said) and unless they reprint it that will continue to be the case until UNB rotates out (at its best RoS was like 2:1 due to Shaymin-EX and SR Vs Seeker), Team Up (TEU) is also sought after quite a lot due to being the first Tag Team set (imo Cosmic Eclipse (CEC) should also be valuable as these 2 sets due to the amount of great cards it has but it has circulated way too much and dropped to abour 0.5:1 but i'm certain it will rise a little in a few months, same with Unified Minds (UNM) due to MewMew GX) For other valuable sets there is of course HGSS era packs (not that i need to mentiont this) and the everlasting Plasma Freeze (PLF) (due to its Secret Rares and being low on the market) but i'll also consider Boundaries Crossed (BCR) and Plasma Blast (PLB) to rise in the future and become more than 1:1 due to how much their Secret Rares and Ace Spec cards have risen I hope this post helps you out and please do check my Price Guide however slow it is being made Thank you, i appreciate it

    Too much work. People managing'em left the game or had no time enough to run the Company at all so they all just close.

    In a word... no. It isn't even that good of a combo. There are more and better counters than you list, many of which are common to multiple competitive decks. OHKO the Mewtwo & Mew-GX. Use Silent Lab. Use Power Plant. Run mild, reusable healing because it is only 30 damage from Sky Attack. Was it frustrating and overwhelming in your match? Sure... but if your deck doesn't have anything to counter it, and your list is "good", then it is just a bad match-up. You may not understand why some other cards were banned, or disagree with why they were banned, but if that is all it takes for a ban to be unnecessary, then all bans would be unnecessary because someone will always disagree with them. Your opponent doesn't have an invincible combo. They aren't taking away your hand before you can use it (either at all, or mostly). They aren't locking you out of a particular card Type before you could ever use it. They aren't eliminating an entire win condition with a simple two-card combo. Etc.

    Hello all. I’m fairly new to the Pokémon TCG and only play online. I know these are the online TCG forums, but I looked and couldn’t find anything on the main Play Pokémon site for forums for the physical version. If there is such a thing, could someone let me know? I have gotten some of the physical cards, mostly for the codes they contain, and was wondering if either this site has a place where people trade physical cards for codes or if anyone knows of a site like that. I figure **** is the place for selling them, but if anyone knows a better place that would help too. Right now I don’t have much, just the theme decks Laser Focus (unified minds), Rillaboom (SwSh), the Ultra Beasts GX premium collection, and a SwSh booster. I also have three Magic the Gathering Fat Pack boxes (about 7 1/2’’ long each) full of older Pokémon cards from years ago when I bought a bunch now and then just to collect. From the expansion symbols they look to range from Jungle to BW sets, but I need to go through them to see what I have. Any info would be great. Thank you!

    Welp, after playing the Cinderance deck some more I've actually done pretty poorly with it. I seem to lose with it to almost everything that isn't a Grass deck fairly consistently, specially against the popular decks (with Relentless Flame, Soaring Storm and Towering Heights being by far the 3 most used decks I've seen, although occasionally I've seen Laser Focus, Unseen Depths and the Rillaboom deck. I've very rarely seen any decks being used other than those 6. While I'm at it, I've yet to run into a single person using the Cinderance deck, so perhaps there's a good reason for that xd). Now that I think about it, it really doesn't have any good source of damage besides the 3 energy attack on Cinderance. I also seem to brick with this deck much more often than the other popular Theme Decks despite having 3 Professor's Research and 4 Hop. So far I've had the most success with Towering Heights, so I'll keep using that one for sure. I know I made this thread to ask advice for myself, but I might as well leave that comment there in case someone else can make use of it.

    I second that Troll and Toad is a great place to buy or simply look up the values of physical cards. As for trading, if you're on the book of faces, you could check out the Pokemon TCG Marketplace group.

    Aye! Sakura! I was wondering when you would show up again! I am currently doing well, but in a time of crisis like this, that is always subject to change. Hopefully it won't, but anyways it's nice to have you back 😀 I am an expanded only player, and like @Chasista mentioned, Ultra Necrozoma/Garbordor is a powerful option. Really annoying to play against as it sets up so fast and locks down abilities almost immediately. We are lucky that this deck is currently not viable in standard. Look up a Deck list and definently consider playing it. I have also seen a lot of Snorlax VMAX decks in expanded. Pretty good when you have Shaymin EX and Sky Field to work with. Might try that out to. Don't forget the Goons deck either. It's the new disruption deck. Look into it as well. If you want to build any of these newer decks, you should probably try and find a way to get some Sword & Shield packs. Otherwise, you might have some difficulties with your current resources. Those Team Up packs should help you though. I don't know 100% what the market currently looks like, but I am predicting that you will have to get a little bit more than what you have at the moment. Personally, I have not been seeing any PikaRom, but I have been seeing Jolteon GX decks which is rather odd. It's not like I play everyday though, so like I said, this information is from my experiences.

    Hey everyone, with the epidemic going on, along with the quarantine, I thought I might ask everybody a quick question? If you had to share it with a pokemon, not a plush, but one as real as the ones you see on the Detective Pikachu movie, which one would it be? Also, try to be a bit practical, when it comes to the size of your living space. For me, being in a small apartment, I would probably go for an eevee, Pikachu, mew, vulpix, growlithe, zorua, or something small enough that doesn't require really high maintenance.

    Hello @SlowPokéDad This thread looks very nice and it's very kind of you to share with the community. Another PokeMom here that knows how hard and expensive can be to get some good pokémon but also how happy makes to our child. For the current conundrum, is maybe Primarina from Sun and Moon?

    Hello, I have been playing this game on and off for a few years and very recently have had log in issues. About a week ago out of nowhere I would launch the game, attempt to log in, and get the server unavailable message, stating there was either maintenance or a problem with my network connection. My internet was fine doing other things. A day or two later after many attempts it randomly let me on again. I logged on the next couple times just fine, but now the problem started up again. This time I really want to solve it. As I said my network connection is fine, I tried reinstalling and deleting the folders, turned off my firewall, and closed applications that I thought may interfere. I still cannot find a solution. Thanks for any suggestions in advance.

    EyE no va a tener ni EX ni GX porque ya tienen las V y VMax. Relevos está por ver aunque en lo personal, no contaría con ellas. No han anunciado el cese del tipo dragón, pero no pinta bien igualmente, por ahora. En cuanto a 1 y 6, PokeBody y PokePower son lo mismo que Habilidad, pero con otro nombre al ser de otra era. En cuanto a 4, también tiene las Mega-EX En cuanto a 5, ahí también están los As táctico/Ace spec (en inglés) Pero básicamente, sin entrar en mucho detalle, creo que sí, todo lo que has dicho es más o menos como es.

    The higher ups - meaning the people the Dev Team work for - want those sets to exist only in certain product. Hence why you can't buy Shining Legends, Hidden Fates, etc. single boosters unless a shop purchased the bundles and intentionally broke them down. It helps to remember the PTCGO exists for two primary reasons: "Reward Program" for folks buying new PTCG product Extended Demo for new players From their perspective, those packs only being available to folks buying physical product is part of the "reward" for buying those products. At least a person can still trade for them, but I really wish they'd make it a limited time exclusivity, like they did with Double Crisis.

    It would be fantastic if the mods would stop using the same excuse about chromebooks not being supported because i had no problems playing the game on my chromebook from june-august but then you updated the game and BOOM no longer works sooo maybe just maybe there is some underlying problem or maybe you could just say the game Stopped supporting chromebooks instead of just repeating the same thing every other mod has said like man just give us an actual answer that youll never fix the problem cause this is getting to be a broken record!!!!!!!

    According to me, the best thing to buy with tokens is one of each theme deck from each standard expansion. You will get a lot of usefull trainers, and you will be able to complete your daily challenges (except for metal and fairy) Moreover, when you win 10 times (or is it 12 times ?) with one of them in trainer challenge, you get a free booster from the same expansion, making it a great deal ! Apart from that, the best standard booster pack for the moment is unified minds.

    Still if you only take look at last big tournament Columbus, you find that good fourth of the decks are either running no gxs or only 1 or 2, zapdos and weezing being the buggest ones, former being tier 1 deck since its release. In top 8 3 of the decks were non-gx based. And yes, while you may argue that gx'es are overpowered, here is the thing: Card doesn't have to be gx to be meta defining or to be overpowered nor does being gx make the card overpowered. Only a handful of gxs are viable, and I would argue that if you took top contenders (pikarom, reshizard, zoro) out of the game, there would be absolute zapdos dominance. Also only taking look at dpp/plat sets, you find cards such as gardevoir, uxie and so on, cards that have insane effects, effects that have been transfered into gx cards to give chance for opponent to punish playing them due to 2 price rule. The situation, where you can make any deck viable at highest level is not possible. It has never been, never will be, in any tcg. Cards have different effects and stats and this means no matter what, some will rise suprime. Actually I would argue if it wasn't for exs/gxs the normal cards had risen the powerlevel far higher than it's currently. If not with stats, with effects. As former oldschool (2006-2013) Ygo tcg player I would say the latter is the worse one. I also find pokemon card prices quite reasonable. While I'm not aware of where the ygo prices currently stand, many time did I find during my play time the top deck (let's say 2009 Lightsworn) being in 1000+ dollars, in Pokemon I would most likely be able to easily buy complete reshizard with 200 dollars or less.
