    Have some variety to stay Fire, go Fire-Dark (Umbreon, Weavil, Yveltal), go Fire-Psy (Crobat, ghosts, Gengar).

    main question is...

    What sort of things can work with 'Zard EX? Butterfree?
    Spoiler:
    Haven't won too often, though most games end up very close when my cards behave.


    Not really wanting to weenie out by going Bronzong Metal Links, though I have three sources of Seafaring.
    Which format? TCGO? Extended? Modified?

    Because that version is an error card. It's supposed to have a Fire-type symbol there rather than a Fighting-type symbol.

        Is there one SR charizard out there that is not an error card?

        Shining Charizard from Neo Destiny does not have an error. Neither does Charizard Lv. X from Supreme Victors. There are a couple others, too, but PokeGym's Research Tower is hiccuping right now.

        Modified, then.

        Pyroar's one of the better pairs, and so is Mega Charizard Y. These two could actually both be in there and be fairly useful.

        Raichu XY can work if you're experiencing trouble with Yveltal in your area. Mewtwo can also be a serviceable addition. Quite a bit to work with.


        By the way, which Butterfree are you talking about when asking if it's a good pair for your 'Zard?

          Flashfire's Butterfree, as was "considering" it for that Stage 2 perk Miltank on consideration of other character card options until I get more variety.

            Guys I have a question for any of you who own the Primal Groudon EX full art from Primal Clash. Does anyone else have white dots on the back side of the card because I own two copies of the card and they both have them in the exact same places.

              The gif on your sign, best gif ever.


              Btw, the Blaine's Charizard have the same problem with FIghtning Energy I think, but the context of the attack make you believe it's intentional, so I'm not sure.

                Does this mean I get to choose who he switches in or I can make him switch and he gets to choose which benched pokemon comes in?

                  I've seen a few listed that all have the fighting symbol so I'm unsure if any were actually printed with the fire type symbol, I've certainly never seen one. Has anyone?

                  I guess that could work with Miltank, but I'm not really sure either pair terribly well with 'zard.

                  Sorry, can't answer. Haven't pulled any yet.

                  It means that you can choose to make him or her switch, but you cannot choose what he or she chooses to switch in.

                  I've actually not seen any with the Fire type symbol. I don't think they actually issued a corrected print of the card, but I'm not certain on that.

                    Question - I'm just trying to organize my cards (finally) and I'm beginning with my base set. However, I have a Jolteon 4/64 with no symbol on it. The base set has 102 cards... so what is this Jolteon if it doesn't have a jungle symbol or anything. Is this an error card?

                      It's an early print from the jungle set. They were printed in error without the jungle symbol.

                        Another question but regarding the Ruby & Sapphire sets. I have some cards from 2003 and some from 2004. Some within the 2003 print don't have the e-reader dots at the bottom. Is this normal? Are some possibly fake?

                        I don't see any information regarding a 2004 reprint. A bit confused.

                        The 2004 ones are probably from theme decks released in 2004.

                        The 2003 ones may be from theme decks released in 2003.

                        Pictures would help identify them, though.

                          Did any of you guys manage to get the new Pokémon Centre Japan Exclusive Pikachu Full Arts? I managed to get a sealed box on Poke Vault. Any of you guys pick one up?

                            any possible way to detect a fake WOTC booster box without opening?

                            I think all the ones I bought are legit. Just wondering if there are any obvious signs.

                              I haven't purchased a pack of pokemon cards in many years and was wonder, do the full art cards have an actual texture or is it just the way the foil looks? And if it is a texture, how do they do it?

                              Most do, iirc. I'm not sure how they do it, though, other than as a part of their printing process.

                              I think all the ones I bought are legit. Just wondering if there are any obvious signs.
                              Only way I can think of off the top of my head is based on the wrapping. PokeBall print wrapping, iirc.

                              Nah. Not got the spare cash to get anything like that.

                              Although this is more of a topic for the DCC or its own thread rather than Quick Questions (which is here more as a help thread), haha.

                                Sorry bro, I couldn't decide which thread would be best to post it in and, well, quick questions and it was a question so I thought that'd be best. Apologies.

                                Nah. Quite alright. Just for reference for next time.

                                If it's something that you can get more than a little discussion out of, it can probably survive in its own thread.

                                This is pretty much just here for those who don't have the courage to open their own thread for questions they have.

                                  I want to play the TCGO, but am I out of luck? It says I need to download it but I don't have a Windows or iPad.

                                    May I ask how you are posting on this forum?
                                    The TCGO can be download on all iOS devices, windows and mac, what else is there that you could be using for this forum?
                                    If you're posting on this forum you should have a compatible device! Unless you're using the internet through an xbox or playstation, which would be quite strange.

                                    Edit: just checked and it isn't available for iPhone, if that's what you're using then sorry but it's not compatible yet, probably because the screen is too small.

                                    The platforms it is available for are a Windows PC (Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10 can all play it), Mac OS X (10.7 and newer can play it), and the iPad (iOS 7 and newer can play it). You need one of those or else you are not going to be able to play on the official TCGO client.

                                      I'm posting from my iPod. I guess that's not a pretty common device to post from, huh? Most people probably have a phone, but not me. Oh, I do have a windows computer but it's Windows XP.
                                      And I have a tablet but it's a droid.

                                      So I guess I can never get this game because no way would my parents do it on their computer
