PTCGO: Reference Guide and Updated List of Unobtainables

Recommended Posts




Introduction:




 

 

Hello Pokemon fans and traders! This thread is a little different to many of the other threads here as it isn't a Trading thread per se, I'm not looking to organize trades here or discuss all the card prices (this isn't a simple price guide). Instead I'm hoping to make this page a useful reference guide for traders and collectors who are looking to obtain certain cards :)

 

As you probably already know there are several cards (and other items) programmed into the game that aren't currently obtainable as far as we know. With the recent introduction of the new Trading Wheel upon completing a PVP Ranked game, some of these have become obtainable, but many are still temporarily unavailable.

 

This thread is hopefully going to be able to inform the community about the introduction of any new items to avoid confusion, and also prevent anyone from getting ripped off via public or private trades for newly released cards (and simply save many traders who spend a long time each day offering trades for stuff that is simply impossible to get ahold of).

 

I monitor public trades often as part of my role in the Top Cut Trading Inc. to try and keep our prices as fair and up to date as possible, and this enables me to keep things up-to-date and inform you about any changes in availability of certain items ASAP. Having said that I will need your help in keeping things up to date, and as this thread is to serve the whole community I would be grateful of any feedback about what other useful sections you would like to see in this thread!

 

Whilst I promote discussion and involvement within the community, please try to avoid derailing the thread and having any arguments, after all it is just a game and the last thing I want is people falling out over such trivial things as a difference in opinion.

Energy:

 

(This was difficult to arrange in an appropriate order due to them all being Basic Energies with little or no artistic differences to others of the same energy type , however for the sake of this I have classified them in the "Set" order as they will appear when filtered within your collection of both owned and unowned energy, with first art being the first time that the particular type of energy appears in "Set" order, and second art being the second time etc.)

 

Dark (1st Art)

Fighting(1st Art)

Fire (1st Art)

Grass (1st Art)

Lightning (1st Art)

The Feraligatr 20/123 came out in an online theme deck (which I believe was called Basic Blue) as it was a free deck given for completing it in the Trainer Challenge the cards were locked, which is most likely why you have a locked copy of the card. The reason why it has the ambiguous title of "2nd art" is that when viewed in your collection (of both owned and unowned cards) there are three Feraligatr HS 20/123 cards, one plain with no holographic effect (it is the first one to the left so would be considered first art), one with a holographic feature on the picture only (this is the unobtainable 2nd art which is believed to come from the theme deck I named next to it on the above list) and the third one is the reverse holo print (which would be considered the third "art").

 

The same goes for the Tangrowth 34/95 which has three different listed "arts" but only two of which are actually obtainable in the game at the current point of time.

You are indeed correct that those cards aren't currently unobtainable, and I will add them to the list in their own section I think. The only reason I didn't add them before is because they weren't expected to be already released anyway, as the League cards will be will be available in the next release of the League Promos (during the next league season irl) which I believe is fairly soon, though I can't remember the exact date, or if the codes are currently redeemable now (if league leaders have already received them). The Machamp I am sure will be released at some point very soon after the release of the next set (maybe as a tournament prize, or obtainable via the Wheel etc.).

 

As for the those energies, I'm not entirely sure as to their origin at the moment (though I was informed it was from the BLW-theme decks, though as I have previously redeemed those decks this seems unlikely) as I only have one copy of each at the moment which I have obtained through public trades, I will see if I can find out any more information on these though.
