    Someone seriously needs to make a Pokemon TCG Program similar to Dueling Network or YVD (YGO based dueling programs).

    I'M LOOKING AT YOU, TOUJOURS!

    That would be amazing tbh; especially since you wouldn't need to buy all those expensive cards :x I'd certainly take part in this if Toujours someone designs it!

      Well the best solution currently around is playtcg.com, which isn't too bad but the interface and functionality could be greatly improved upon in my opinion.

      Pokemon is easy to learn Toujours! I will teach you how to X-Ball for the KO.

      It's addicting... Quite fun, free for the basic decks, and has a nice tutorial online. You can play against a CPU, or others.
      Though the VS feature is being scrapped until August while they completely replace the core gameplay engine, presumably so it's easier to update.

        Yeah and my best friend lost all of his cards because of it.

        Son, get in line. I offered to teach her first.

        It took me two minutes to learn to play. It's taken me years to "master", but that's because of the ever-changing nature of the game and my lack of competitive play experience. I am a walking collecting factbook, though.

        The official tools do so much better of a job than a text-based guide because they're interactive, though! But the official Trainer Kits are even better for learning to play.

        Learning to play the Pokemon TCG is easy, mastering it is another thing. I myself took only about three to five minutes to learn how to play the game yet after years, it seems impossible that I would be mastering it.

        Also, the Pokemon TCG video game is the best way to learn how to play imo. I don't know if the mechanics changed since then (stopped playing any TCG around last year so :x) but I'm pretty sure the basics are still the same. :3

          The Pokemon TCG very much embodies the "easy to learn but difficult to master" principle. It's so difficult to play a flawless game.

              Recently, I've been thinking of evolutions of existing pokemon the producers at Game Freak will create for future versions. For example, I've been thinking of evolutions for Sableye, Carnivine, and Mawile because, in my opinion, they have alot of area for improvement.

                Give it a year or two then you'll probably find that you won't drive people away so much with Pokemon talk. In fact, you might find that people are genuinely interested.

                  You can, just at different places. Say if you were at Nintendo World NYC, you could easily talk to many people about Pokemon. Or at a TCG tournament near you, you could go and talk to many people there. Or at a competitive Pokemon tournament, I'm sure you could talk to people there. Or at Comic-Con, if you are going. Or at your nearest hobby store, they might sell Pokemon cards or something. There will probably be someone buying cards there. I know at my nearest hobby store, they host Pokemon TCG games. There's lots of places really, just look for people who love Pokemon!

                  Yeah, the Nintendo World conversation went something like this:

                  Him: Hey, ask me if you have any questions!
                  Me: Okay, thanks! -starts talking about B2W2 with Tom-
                  Him: Oh, are you excited for B2W2?
                  Me: You...have no idea.
                  Tom: Did you hear about the old Gym Leaders coming back?
                  Him: ...What?
                  Me: -explains world tournament-
                  Him: That's awesome! And there are new main characters right?
                  Me: -spouts off all the info about the main characters-

                  -conversation continues like this-

                  Him: ...Okay, so I'll ask you if I have any questions.

                  You just have to find the right people to talk to.

                  If they blatantly refuse to accept who you are they probably aren't your true friend. Otherwise just give 'em some time to get to know you better.

                  Anime conventions are also great places to meet fellow Poke-fans. Usually there are at least a few Pokemon-related cosplays and panels.

                    No one has posted in here for nearly two weeks, what is this bullcrap. Simply unacceptable, right Toujours?

                    Speaking of anime conventions, I went to one last weekend and I saw someone dressed up as that tree monkey from B/W. I saw a Misty cosplayer as well but I think that was all for Pokemon.

                    If you could be any Pokemon, what would you be and why? Answer the question with the restriction of having to choose a "human shaped" Pokemon too.

                    Speaking of anime conventions, I went to one last weekend and I saw someone dressed up as that tree monkey from B/W. I saw a Misty cosplayer as well but I think that was all for Pokemon.

                    If you could be any Pokemon, what would you be and why? Answer the question with the restriction of having to choose a "human shaped" Pokemon too.
                    Sceptile, because he's one of my favorite Pokémon and Oshawott and Grovyle aren't nearly big enough to be a humanoid.

                    Mewtwo cause I'd actually be pretty ticked off at having to live as Pokemon, because then I'd never be able to drive a car or get a job as a CEO. And Mewtwo doesn't seem too happy about its existence as a Pokemon, either.

                    Blehhhh

                    Today, I saw a whole BUNCH of Pokémon cards that I was going to get, and they were being given away (because church event). So I took some, and come to find out they're all fake.

                    China, why? Why would you do something like this??

                    Most of the cards they sell here are fake, you can only get authentic ones in well-known game stores. Sad, I know, that's why I didn't bother to collect them anymore.
