Where does everyone buy their pokemon cards? Do you buy online? If so what sites are reliable?

I generally buy in person from the reputable big box retailers like Target and Wal-Mart, as 95% of the time, the cards they sell, even the after-market repackaged ones, are legitimate. I also buy from game shops, bookstores, and hobby shops I know have the official boosters.

Online, I've generally bought from eBay sellers with good reputations. I've not given the major online sellers (trollandtoad.com and the like) a go, and I've yet to actually buy any from Amazon or the sellers that use it, either. I know there are a few people that come around here every once in a while that have some experience with the legitimate online retailers, so they can give you more details on which one is better, but the reputable ones I can think of off the top of my head are trollandtoad.com, pokeorder.com, and tcgplayer.com.

Any sellers in particular you were looking for references on?

For singles I usually go to Collector's Cache (collectorscache.com) or Troll and Toad. Cache is a little more expensive, but they ship out next day if not same day. Troll and Toad is cheaper, but (in my experiences) not shipped out as fast.

For booster boxes I go to dacardworld.com... They have a rewards program where the more you spend, the more and better free stuff they give you. Their selection of singles isn't that impressive, but it's a good place to get boxes for sure!

Otherwise miscellaneous packs and tins, I just go to Walmart because it's close to my house...

I buy Pokemon cards from everywhere.
You can find them mostly anywhere as well, If it's at a local convenient store or WAL-MART.
I live in Canada and I don't know where you live. If you live in the states ... I would suggest Target or something... Not completely sure though.

And you can either buy them in a starter deck, Tinned deck with a Foil card, Or even a championships winner deck. They have almost everything in cards.

You can even buy them from collectors that sell rare cards online.
Myself I have over 10,000 + Cards. But that's not what were here for lol.

Yeah, If you need anymore information just reply to me!

Those World Championship decks are only good for playtesting things, though. They don't have any real collection value (unless left sealed in the box) and are not legal to use at tournaments.
