    Hi all,

    Like most people around my age (im 27) I collected pokemon base set cards when they were as easy as chocolate to buy!

    fast forward several years and I find myself with the urge of getting back into collecting pokemon cards, but not in the way that I want to complete sets (thats boring - no offence) but rather a different idea..

    would collecting GX/EX cards only be a viable collection?

    I know that there are people that only collect certain pokemon eg pikachu but thats something that doesnt appeal to me either

    so with my idea, there are normal ones, full arts, rainbows etc.

    is it a viable option? or am i just living in a fantasy world?

    its either this or yugioh so be kind ;) hahaha

    It would be as far as personal collecting. If you're expecting to be able to show up to a league with them and be able to play, that's a different story, but just for collecting? Yeah. May wanna focus on lowercase ex cards first as they're older and rarer and starting to climb in price and then focus on uppercase EX cards second as they're more recent but also not standard legal, so they'll generally be cheaper, before moving onto GXs later when the first of them are likely to rotate out of the standard format sometime after August 2019.

    The way you'd have to go about it is by buying singles, though.

      I've been getting back into collecting and I set my goal to get every full art Trainer cause I think the cards are just beautiful. Also I want to see if I can get a Team Up Master Set and how long that will take me :D
      I think you should just find what you like the most and start with those cards :)

        I think you should focus on your favorite set. Mine is Evolutions which has the best looking Mega Charizard.

        There are literally no rules for collecting! :) You're free to start wherever you want in your collection. Collect all the cards, collect only rares/holos, collect promos, collect ex, collect delta species.. anything you want! The most important thing is that you have fun!

        For instance, I specifically only collect pre E-Reader cards, misprints, promos, and Fairies. n_n; But I do have a binder dedicated to "everything else".
