Pokémon TCG Questions Thread [general questions]

I was wondering if anyone else has bought the Mimikyu Pin Set yet? And if you got some valuable cards in it? I just ordered my set and am pretty excited / waiting impatiently for it to arrive. :)

So, basically, someone (or several someones, not sure where the vids came from) thought it'd be funny and posted some troll videos on social media stating the values of several cards to be way higher than they actually are, and the listing prices on eBay are still absurdly high because at least one of those videos claimed the Bill card was over $3000, which, despite being an obvious troll to those in the know, still roped in a lot of naive people, and those listing prices are the aftershocks of all those people who brought that troll's bait.

It's quite frankly annoying as a long-time collector that all of these new collectors got taken for a ride by a couple troll videos. The only card that I've seen in said videos that was actually worth anywhere near what the videos claimed is the Pikachu Illustrator card.
Dang. I had no idea about these videos. Luckily I have been collecting Pokemon cards since they first came out and kind of have that knowledge on my side.

Quick question, is it worth going to pre-release events? The entry fee is £23, but 7 packs more or less make your money back (7 Packs retail for £3 so £21) so it seems worth it based off that, plus any cool cards you get you can sell, just wondering what peoples exp at events like this are?

Should note I am casual player/collector.

Recently started collecting the cards again. Really wanting a secret rare charizard from burning shadows. I can buy a full box for 90$ us or I can just buy a single charizard card. Looking for suggestions. My max budget for a full art charizard is probably around 100$ us but I'm just wondering if anyone has any price predictions on charizard secret rares. Will price go up or down with the new series releases? Looking for advice from veteran collectors. Thanks in advance!

Hey, guys. Did you know why you think they never make anymore Pokémon cards of Greninja for the Pokémon Sun & Moon Trading Card Game set? Some people thought that Greninja was still popular among its fans.

Hey, guys. Do you think that Dark Pokémon cards (opposite of Light Pokémon cards) were well-received or acclaimed by collectible card game journalism critics?

Well, I might not know, but I do have quite a bunch of them (I have more Dark cards than Light ones since Light cards appeared only once) but they are worth collecting. That's what I think. My prides in both Dark and Light cards are Holo Dark Crobat and Holo Light Azumarill.

take it out on me
When putting cards in a SM deck that are from previous generations (but aren't banned), does it affect the teck's type (expanded and etc.)?

I've been out of the loop from the card game and I just wanted to ask what is the ideal deck type in the current Pokemon TCG metagame?
