    Hi guys, I just purchased a Fenneken starter deck but the cards in the deck don't have rarity symbols on them. Can anybody tell me why?
    thanks

    Because each of the starter decks were given their own collector's numbers this time around, and rarity doesn't apply when you get the exact same cards in every single starter deck.

      okay so if the your Pokemon your active Pokemon has two Energys atatched to it and your opponent has two Energys atatched to it it does 100 damage so it states that it does and extra 20 damage for each atatched to your opponents Pokemon (active that is) do you get it now?

        Okay, I got an answer for this from PokePop over at PokeGym: Since Mew Prime does not have a resistance in the first place, there is no resistance for the attack to change, which means Mew Prime cannot gain a resistance from the attack. Any Pokemon with a similar ability that did have a resistance, however, would be able to change its resistance since the effect is still technically there, it's just not applicable to Mew Prime.

          Ok. So there is this pokemon card that has the move soulscream: put damage counters on all pokemon until every pokemonbhas 10 hp remaining. Does that include every single pokemon in the stage??? Also does it get damaged if the defending pokemon is a druddigon with the rough skin ability?

          That attack only affects both Active Pokemon, not every Pokemon in play. And as far as I understand it, it would not be damaged by Rough Skin because Rough Skin's effect is triggered by damage done by an attack, while placing damage counters counts as an effect of an attack instead of damage from an attack.

            Hello,

            I'm completely new to the PCG (and physical card games altogether). I purchased a X and Y Kalos Starter Set last night.

            Here are my questions-


            1. Am I right in assuming that there are currently NO booster packs for X and Y?

            2. I noticed that my Starter Set comes with a booster from Black and White- Can I build my deck from from ANY boosters available or can I only use X and Y and Black and White to build my deck?


            I'm in the process of reading the rules and learning to play so thanks for the help.

            1. Yes, that is correct. There won't be any until February 5th, 2014.

            2. You most certainly can if you're just playing among friends. If you plan on going to official tournaments, however, there's a list of sets that you're restricted to that I've compiled here: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=309435

                  That doesn't exactly look legit. Maybe it is since it's not on the most commonly used sheet for self-performed cuts of Base Set sheets, but my reasons to be suspicious of that lot are covered quite well here by the majority opinion in this archive thread over at PokeGym: http://pokegym.net/forums/archive/index.php/t-172356.html

                  That Blastoise shouldn't be running for anything north of $200 unless it has been proven to be legitimate.

                  As it stands, this is the most valuable card worldwide that is confirmed to be legitimate: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon_Illustrator_%28CoroCoro_promo%29

                  In English, the most valuable card that is confirmed to be legitimate is the Prerelease Raichu: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Raichu_%28Base_Set_14%29#Prerelease_Raichu

                    I bet you're right donavannj. I don't claim to know very much about collecting....as a matter a fact I just bought my first couple of theme packs and boosters over the weekend. So I'm a noob as they come. :D

                    That's quite alright. I just don't want anyone sinking $21,000 into a single Pokemon card without knowing whether what they're actually getting is even worth that much.

                    The biggest reason to be wary of those is that they could be "aftermarket" square cuts cut from a cardsheet done by the seller themselves, though there are some legit square cuts out there that managed to slip past the QA at Wizards when they were in control of the American English prints. It's just very hard to distinguish between them.

                    Personally I'm still trying to collect most of the standard cards. I'm missing vast swaths of over half of the sets in existence.

                      Hi, I checked the rules but I'm not sure. If I put a Fennekin on my bench, then draw another one. Can I put it on my bench? So can I have two copies of the same card in play at the same time?

                      You most certainly can have two or more in at the same time. The only time you can't is if the card explicitly states that you cannot or for card types where it is explicitly outlined in the rules, such as with Trainer - Stadium cards and with Ace Spec cards.

                        Thank you. I wasn't sure as I have played Vs in the past and if you had a Wolverine in play and brought out another Wolverine the first one had to be put into discard as you can only have one character of that name in play at a time. I thought that this may be the same with Pokemon. :)

I wasn't sure as I have played Vs in the past and if you had a Wolverine in play and brought out another Wolverine the first one had to be put into discard as you can only have one character of that name in play at a time. I thought that this may be the same with Pokemon. :)
                        Pokemon is nowhere near that restrictive. Pokemon is more like MtG-Lite, being designed to be very similar to MtG back when Wizards of the Coast had a hand in Pokemon's R&D.

                          This is a (potentially technical) question about the TCG online, hopefully that's okay to ask here.

                          I bought the Plasma Blast Solar Strike deck a while ago, and while it works fine in player vs player, not all the cards seem to be available in the Trainer Challenge (specifically, Blastoise, one Volcarona, and Pokemon Catcher seem to be missing. Others might be missing as well, it's just that those are pretty important cards in the strategy of the deck, so those are the ones I notice). I know that with the basic red/blue/green decks that are provided for the trainer challenge, you have to "unlock" the cards by winning matches before you can use the deck in it's entirety. But I thought you didn't have to do that with purchased decks? Either way, those cards are not unlocking. Is this purposeful to make things more challenging, or is it a bug that I should be reporting? Or am I just totally missing something?

                          I have no idea, as I've never tried using one of the theme decks from the deck codes in the Trainer Challenge. I'll try it tomorrow night and see what results I get.

                            Do cards from different series (i.e. base, Rocket, gym hero's, neo, neo revelations, etc) feel physically different?

                            I feel like the earlier cards felt a bit thicker compared to later editions. maybe its just me

                            Short answer, kinda, but not really.

                            Long answer escapes me at the moment but it's 1:30 AM my time and I've been up since 7 AM.
