For anyone confused regarding this post and question, the answer is still "You can use Switch when a Pokemon is paralyzed," just like it was back on Page 1.

Can't say for certain since I was 9 when the Fossil Set released, but I'd presume the theme decks released the same day as the set, which was released on October 10, 1999.

So, I was almost 6 months old when that was releases. Wow. These are going to be the oldest cards I own.

What's this card from?
It's substantially smaller than normal cards (as seen by the card behind it) and the card doesn't feel as thick as it normally should. It has the old school Pocket Monsters back to it.

I'm inclined to think it's a fake. That Pocket Monsters back was only ever officially used on official TCG cards.

Now that I'm examining it, it does appear to be fake... Well it doesn't have that fancy black card in-between the layers but I don't know when they started doing that, do the oldest cards have that?
It's a very strange layout, and it's Chinese not Japanese as I originally assumed.
The best Google Translate can tell me is the text consists of:

MOVES
Headbutt
Curse
Special Poison
Power Awakening
Japan Flag
Snoring

OBTAIN PLACES
(something) / Gold City
round insect city
Dianthus?
Anger Lake / round insect city
Gold City / round insect city
Dark Caves / Grinding mill ranch

Actually, after translating this I'm thinking this might be to do with the anime, where James used cards to identify Pokemon rather than a Pokedex, as they look quite similiar...

1. Does anyone know the origin of "World Championships" cards? I have a few from grab bags. The back is drastically different from typical cards. If I'm correct, Pokémon World Championships is a real life event? I have never attended one. Mine came from some cheap third party repackaging. The borders are silver and each one is signed with a name I don't recognise. I have ones from PWC 2013 and PWC 2014. Are they valuable at all?

Pretty sure they don't have much value unless you have the whole set, but I'm curious too. I've got 2 that say 2005 on the back

Really depends on what cards you're interested in collecting.

The World Championships decks are promo decks released by The Pokemon Compnay every year and they are just composed of non-play legal cards and use deck lists used by the top 3 in each age group from the previous World Championships. The idea is to get people used to playing the TCG competitively and try and encourage more people to play competitively. They've been running them for a while. Can't remember exactly when they started.

They're basically worthless on their own, and only have any significant value when still sealed in the deck box, from a collector's standpoint.

Mine are worthless, then. But I'll hold on to them since I have no one to trade with. Like I said, I didn't get them from a deck. They were just scattered in a random package that I got cheaply.
