Which versions are you looking for, and how much are you looking to pay for those? I have versions of all of those on eBay right now.

I buy booster boxes with the intent on selling whilst also keeping the cards I want for building decks. However it sucks having to pay eBay's fees. I'd sell them privately, but not sure of a good, consistent way of doing so where I could could get the same kind of prices I would on eBay.

Are there rules against listing them and their prices here?

For the record, I've bought some booster boxes and performed the trick to pull all the Ultra Rares. I have listed the remaining booster packs on eBay, but I've clearly indicated that they've been "weighed" and are unlikely to contain Ultra Rares as I don't want to fuck people over.

I got to say that as someone who came back to the TCG last year (after being inactive for 15 years) there's something that I find quite perplexing. What's with all the Premium gates?

While looking around and doing research I find it weird that more than often I'm reading an article and eventually I have to stop reading it because I run into a sign that basically says please pay a subscription fee to keep reading or kindly screw off.

Is gating information a common practice with other TCGs at the moment? The closest thing I can think of that was even close to this back in the day were the Pojo's Pokemon Magazines. Yeah there's the argument of supporting the websites/community but some of these prices are quite high in my opinion.

There's also a lack of community tools available for example there's an absence of a good card database (I heard someone is working hard on one right now though) and I keep having to trudge through Bulbapedia which suck on mobile phones and there doesn't seem to be any Deck Building Apps or Websites that I know so I have keep having to open Microsoft Word to make one.

Use the online game for building decks. You can choose to show cards you don't own in the online game, and build prospective decks that way. It's also good for looking up specific card details.

I'm pretty sure Joe is so tired of hearing this critism/complaint/request but I wouldn't mind browsing through Serebii some more and it's forums if it was Mobile Friendly.

Six Prizes and Pokebeach are good sites too but they suffer from a lack of Mobile Website support and they both gate a bulk of their articles via subscriptions.

60cards it's an alright website and I visit the Reddit page nearly every day.

As for YouTube I mostly just follow PTCGRadio but I occasionally watch content by other PTCG Youtubers but I don't subscribe to them.

The Pokellector App would be a perfect database if it wasn't for the constant adds (I wouldn't mind buying the app to get rid of them) and the fact that everything in that app is web based so it needs a constant cellular/wifi connection to work and it's not a snappy responder whenever you click or open anything.

Well first and foremost I will say that despite my single minor qualm with your website I do appreciate all the time, energy and effort that you have poured into the website as I have been going there at least once a week since Generation III.

I won't pretend to know the hurdles of website development so I can't give you an informed opinion on the lack of a mobile website or making your website mobile friendly but you have to understand that zooming and having to recenter a web page every time I open a new link in your website gets old real fast.

A perfect compromise for Pokellector to be a perfect card database is if I'm giving the option to buy a premium version off the app that gets rids of the ads and makes the app work offline and stop being so reliant on a internet connection but I'm not sure if the author is unable or unwilling to do that specially when he would be trading long term ad money for short term gain.

As for your Cardex Joe the mobile issues aside the only thing that's stopping me from using it over Bulbapedia is that I couldn't find a way to look through sets so if for example I wanted to look at every card released on the Sun & Moon set I couldn't find a way to achieve that.

Toolbar on the left hand side, in the TCG section, it lists sets.

You can select English sets for a list of all the English sets which then takes you to that set, or you can just select Sun & Moon as the most recent sets are also in that toolbar :)

I completely missed that for some reason because I had previously accessed your Cardex through a Google search instead of navigating to it through your website and it didn't occurred to me that you listed the sets the same way you listed the video games in the video game section of the tool bar.

Welp this changes things when I'm not doing research on my cellphone I will be using your website instead of Bulbapedia now.

On a slightly related news is there any particular reason you don't cover TCG news? Or did I somehow missed that section too? Because I see you cover the video games,anime and mobile app but I don't recall ever seeing TCG news on the front page...Or perhaps you feel like it's better off if you leave that to Pokebeach and the likes instead?

They release a Lycanroc box, but they don't include a Rockruff card. TPCI what are you doing. Gonna have to find those blisters to get some.

Does anyone know where to look up japanese decks? I heard there's a Garbordor/Lycanroc deck doing well in the japanese scene, but I have no idea where to look


Also this looks pretty good

Mallow – Trainer
Supporter
Choose 2 cards from your deck and shuffle the rest of your deck. Put the chosen cards on top of your deck in any order.
You may play only 1 Supporter card during your turn (before your attack).

That sucks but as I was saying before, the Elite Trainer Box is good if you don't have all the tokens and stuff. Did you get any of the cards stated earlier? Talonflame, Talonflame Break, Sycamore, Ultra Ball, Yanmega, Hawlucha, Ninja Boy, Joltik and so much more ! Steam Siege is one of the most solid sets out there. So many damn good cards that I would honestly consider it the best set out there to purchase and get going. Even Roaring Skies has less decent cards in that set. Outside of shinies and Breaks, I'd be surprised if you didn't get some amazing pulls you might not have noticed. What did you pull?

Check out the trading thread on Reddit or simply eBay and Amazon.

I'm definiltey on the Mallow is situational. I like the card and while I disagree with using a Supporter into Supporter for 2 turn combo, this can provide some great synergy With Professor Kukui as Kukui draws the next 2 cards. So for example for me using Greninja Break, if you set up Mallow for 2 energy, next turn I can use Professor Kukui to draw 2 energy which guarantees I can Break Ability Switch and get the damage if needed. I think it's a great card but only for certain cards. Using it in the Vespiquen deck I think is a must. For a deck that all about your discarded Pokemon, this is amazing.

For expanded, this a Night March must as well.

From those you said I got Hawlucha, Ninja Boy and Joltik, nothing else , my holos were Infernape and Hydreigon, the Break was Yanmega(didnt get the normal one....) and the reverse rares were Bastiodon and Toxicroak

Something like this. for shiny cards. The binders come in a variety of styles and sizes, so I bought smaller versions for my kids that they can bring in to school. For commons/uncommons and staples that might be useful I'll throw them in some cheap sleeves and store them in the box that comes with the elite trainer boxes.

Sell all the bulk/unwanted ex's to a card shop and use it to buy anything specific you might be chasing.

Im playing Decidueye/Lugia/Tauros in standard and Seismitoad/Decidueye in expanded and they are both a lot of fun. Totally netdecked.

I have three copies Decidueye, do I need a fourth? Seems unnecessary in the limited time I've used them.

Do it for fun. It's a stupid good deck. I think Lugia works because of the Stadium Bonus but I think using a Ninja Boy is an unused tech for this which works amazingly with Tauros.

Just did this online

When a single Wailord EX wins by doing nothing but laming you out like it's Street Fighter x Tekken. Love it. Salt.

Congrats, on turn 1 you (the turn you aren't even allowed to attack on), managed to deal 120 damage killing major evolution starters (and any backup 60HP benches), set up Pokemon and/or severely damaging all other set up Pokemon such as Talonflame and even killing a Shaymin EX.



Calling it now but Decidueye GX is a phenomenal deck. Even without Tauros it just stands so flipping on it's own that it's basically Gill from Third Strike. It's Greninja with a stronger set up, less evolutions and no energy required. It's ridiculous.

That's one hell of a lucky opening hand!

edit: spoke too soon, just got 2 out of 3 Decidueye setup on turn one and got the third one to stage 1 (my last one was prized). I also ended up with two hammers (which could have been devo. spray had I put them in the deck) and an ultra ball that could have grabbed the third owl. Pretty good. The key cards from expanded being Battle Compressor and Revitalizer with help from Shaymin and Forest of Giant Plants.

Are there rules against listing them and their prices here?

For the record, I've bought some booster boxes and performed the trick to pull all the Ultra Rares. I have listed the remaining booster packs on eBay, but I've clearly indicated that they've been "weighed" and are unlikely to contain Ultra Rares as I don't want to fuck people over.

Solgaleo I kinda want Hyper Rare but i know that's gonna cost me a pretty penny. Same for Umbreon. Lillie i'm looking for that full art. Incineroar i just want a GX. I'm just in it to collect the cards I like, don't really want to play so I want to get the best looking version of those cards.

Decidueye might be good after rotation but I doubt it'll be competitive until then.

It's going to hurt if Forest of Giant Plants rotates.
