Honestly, a good place to start is to just flat out buy one of the theme decks. It helps a lot in giving you a solid idea of how to play and the very basics of deck building, and you can expand from there. For a more complete deck experience, buy one of the World Championship Decks to get a feel for how a competitive deck is built and plays, and find your balance. I'm personally more for the fun side of things, so I haven't been trying to build something to win tournaments, just to play with a friend.I am wanting to get into the TCG but have no clue where to start. Unlike a lot of TCG's, this is one I have no knowledge of outside of the old gameboy color game.
There's a list of what sets are legal here.Hello everyone, i just recently got into the Pokemon tcg, and apparently my deck was not legal for the hometown duel shop tourney, and they should me way, but my question is, is there a list of what cards are standard? and which cards are expanded? its hard to find an exact list and i have looked. thank you in advance
I believe these are only found in the new Generations set (the set whose packs come in the Monthly Mythicals collection boxes).What do the hearts and flowers on the left side of some cards mean?
Around $8-$10Hello All,
I'm new to the site and I couldn't find a location for TCG online game posting. I was opening some packs for fun from codes that I had and I received a "ultra rare card". I can't seem to find the price of this card and when I put it up for trade I immediately got spammed with trade request regarding the card.
The card is a "Latios-EX 113/116 from Plasma Freeze)" this set was discontinued in 2013.
Please help as I am unable to determine the right price for this card and it's usefulness.
That's completely dependent on how much effort you want to put into selling them, really.Hi everyone. I have some old pokemon cards I found, mostly mint condition, in my basement. They are really old, like between 1999-2001. I have easily over 200 cards, but maybe 15 of them are the rare holographic. I was wondering, do you guys recommend I sell the cards on ebay? Or should I look for a card collector in my local area? I'm not sure which is the best option. I'm hoping someone can tell me which one is the better option. Thanks in advance for the help.
Hihi, Long time since I actually posted anything again, but. . .
Got called out of bed today by a few friends,
according to them "Trainer Bill" Base/2nd were selling for 300$$(Ebay),
They themselves don't actually do anything in Pokémon nor the TCG.
So I did some browsing and can't really find a reason for the ridiculous price,
*Regular Card Shops are still selling at price ranges of somewhere under a Buck.
*Value doesn't really seem to be Directly related to the Condition
*No real Description of supposed rarity stated anywhere besides "rare hard to come by/ out of print"
*Most if not all Bill posts are fairly recent.
*Even "Marktplaats" (Dutch Used Resale Online) is showing some signs of the supposed ?value rise?
People Selling Stacks of Old cards, but singling out the Bill Card.
Is this some new trend/after effect of the Pokémon GO craze?
Or some Black Market Scam/Cover Up?
I know I may be going a bit overboard about this,
but I just want to be able to lay this to rest
