:confused: i just found out a few days ago japan has pokemon pogs. =-= i remember pogs was popular back when i was little.

pogs are little circle shapped cardboard peices with designs on them and a heavier circle is used to slam down on them and flip them over. you keep the pieces that are face down i beleive.

I have loads of pokemon 'pogs'. The crsip company Walkers gave them free a couple of times (though they were called tazos). I have a really rare one too ^_^ and a complete 1st set (lots of crisps and everyone would give them to me).

Wow. I remember pogs. XD They were VERY popular when I was in 5th grade (that being.. 9, 10 years ago or so). The 'heavier circle' used to slam onto the other pogs was called, I believe, a 'slammer'. Or it's what we called it, at least. Most of the ones we had were made of plastic.. but some came made out of metal or some other such hard material that got them banned from schools after they got used as weapons by angry pog fans. ^_^;

Didn't know those things were still around.. much less with pokemon on them. :cool:
