How do I know if a pack has a code on it?

If I'm ordering my packs online how can I tell if I'll be able to redeem them or not, or do all the latest packs have codes?

Heres a comparison between a booster pack with a code, and a booster pack that does not have a code. The one on the top has a marking on the top-right hand corner that says "contains one code card. this card gives you preview access to the beta version of the pokemon tcg online. The only way to tell if a booster pack has a code on it is if it has that marking, you have to actually look at the codes on the pack to see if it contains one. I hope this clears up any confusion! thumbs_up.png

Well, unless you can ask and make sure they do, unfortunately it could be. Though you could check out your local hobby shops and see if they sell them, as bigger retailers will not have the ones with codes.

I just bought a tin from Tesco (UK) with no way to tell by looking at packaging (packs inside the tin) I took a gamble, and they aren't the correct coded packs :(

 

 

 

Advice - I wouldn't buy the cards, unless they are separate and you can see the actual message on the back..

Thanks for the image Lance, going to have to have a look in town tomorrow, and see if I can find a pack like that.

 

 

 

Just out of interest, has anyone in the UK purchased a pack with the codes in?

I haven't yet.. Dont go to Tesco, as there is no way of telling. Doh!

 

But I know of English peeps that have acquired the codes, wether or not they were from the shops I'm unsure sorry, but at least we know that codes are working for UK.

 

Your just gonna have to go find them :)

The packs in any packages that don't allow you to see the back will not have the codes. So it isn't really gambling since you have no chance at all of getting any from tins or blister packs. They only put them in the loose booster boxes that were going to the smaller shops. If you find a box but the first one you grab doesn't have the symbol then the other 34 probably won't have them either. All of the packs in the boxes with codes have them.

 

 

 

But never fear, every single booster pack printed for Emerging Powers coming out at the end of August will have a code.
