Everything promo is out except the POP sets, which still don't count toward the definition of complete. Also out are things like Trainer Kits, Pokemon Rumble, etc. Reprint sets Base 2 and Legendary Collection are out. Which leaves:

Any 1 of each card from all English non-reprint/non-"special" sets (except POP), excluding Trainer, Energy, Support, Stadiums, Fossils.

It all started innocently enough with me picking up a promo pack with the Plusle & Minun trainer deck and some boosters, and Pokemon Rumble. Pokemon, cool!

Yes, all of you (probably)

This is a counter to all of my ****** moody angsty blogs. I looked back, and my god I was just being whiny and over dramatic. I'd like to apologize to all that read them.

Background

Posted June 3rd, 2010 at 07:23 PM by piecemeal (Adventures In Collecting)
