Booster Codes: How to Tell?


HeavensAgent

Recommended Posts

I have a question regarding the booster pack codes. Everything I've read says the inclusion of a code card is marked on the back of a booster pack. However, the only boosters I've found in my area are sealed in additional cardboard-backed packing, and the back of the booster is not visible.

 

 

 

 

 

I just purchased three such boosters after the clerk behind the counter assured me codes was included in each. None of them did, and I was refused a refund; obviously the store has lost any future business from me, but most importantly, is there any way to determine if boosters packaged in such a manner include code cards? Thanks for any advice on this matter; as you can imagine, I've a very sour taste in my mouth at the moment, and want to avoid such an encounter again in the future.

The code should be in the pack and the code will be like a card, but the same thing happened to me, no codes in them. I don't know how did Pokemon screw that up

No, no, no! The way that you KNOW that there's codes in a booster pack is that it won't have the little cardboard backing, so the clerk that told you was wrong. Remember, though, not all people that work in stores that sell Pokemon cards are Nintendo employees, so you can't really blame them for the clerk getting those mixed up. Just check the nearest trading card store near you (NOT a supermarket!) and they should have them.

I'm not blaming the clerk for not knowing. I'm blaming the clerk for not knowing, assuring me codes were in the packs, and then not providing a refund when it turned out there were none. I'm also a tad bit angry for the folks behind the codes themselves, for handling their distribution in such a poor and unprofessional manner. But that's for another thread, if I'm still angry about it after I calm down a bit.

 

 

 

As for not buying boosters with cardboard backing, as I said originally, that's all there is in my area. There are no true hobby game stores within some 200+ miles. Even though the store I bought my packs from was not a supermarket or similar outlet, the cardboard-backed boosters are all they carry.

In your statements I have understood that to get a code I need to buy something... But I hardly will find something in Moscow similar, or I simply don't know where to search.

 

And it is impossible to find this code in another way somehow?

That's why it's called closed beta, because not everyone can get in. I don't see how it is unprofessional to limit the amount of people into the beta test. If they let everybody in all at once this place would be so flooded they wouldn't get anything done. Every pack in Emerging Powers will have codes, it's coming by the end of August.

 

 

 

Yeah that clerk was stupid, I hate it when a person assumes they know something without any evidence.

 

 

 

For other countries I suggest buying them online from someone who will email you the code.

For the first time I regret that I live in Moscow where there are no these codes with cards. I feel, there will not have any codes. sad_smile.png
