Well, I got an original pack the other day, and I got a holo Hitmonchan. I just wanted to know if that's rare or anything.

Thanks for helping out!

I take it your talking about base hitmonchan.

Anyways, it's not really rare. Since the old days the value and rarity of it sky dived to almost nothing really.

Though, if your talking about the fact that it's a holofoil, then yes, it's a bit rare considering it's harder to get foils than regular rare's.

There have been sets where people have complained about this sorta thing.

It's just a very horrible printing job for the most part.

I dont know if this belongs here but what the heck. Where can I find out where tournaments would be hosted, I would love to battle again;152;
Use this site here: Pokemon-tcg.com

It's the official site for pokemon. They have a tournament finder that you can use, though they only find tournies that are reported in.

I have a couple of questions so sorry if I sound stupid.
1) I got a promo Ludicolo in this thing at walmart and I was wondering if it is tournament legal?
2) The regular Ditto in Delta Species Energy Link attack can it get special energy cards or just regular energy cards?
3) Haunter from FireRed/LeafGreen it says you may confuse one of your active pokemon is that so you can give pokemon with attacks that have bonuses from special conditions?

1. Right now, all new black star promos numbered 027 and up are allowed. Can't remember off the top of my head what number Ludicolo was.

2. It says an "Energy card," so yes, special energies count.

3. That's one thing you can do with it. Also, when you're Confused you can retreat normally, so it's useful if you have a Pokemon that's Paralyzed/Asleep.

Ho-oh Master, the 'Beach has card lists for all the Modified sets, and the main Serebii site should have them for all other ones:

I saw this EX Collector's Window Tin Pokemon TCG and tried a web search to buy it but they only ship it in uk. Does anyone know a online shop other than ebay that sells the EX Collector's Window Tin Pokemon TCG that also sells all 3 tins in US? Each tin has one of the legendary birds, Articuno ex, Zapdos ex or Moltres ex. And the birds are different from the ex firered/leafgreen series' birds.

It's a UK-exclusive product, so ebay is probably your best bet. I haven't heard of a US store selling them.

I've got a question.
I'm what you call coming out of retirement (haven't bought a pack in almost 1 1/2 years!). What is the best pack to buy?

Depends on what deck you will build. I myself would say EX: Fire Red & Leaf Green as it has Pidgeot, but it depends on your deck.
