@Daniel_Newton: I'll try, btw I still got the original TGC training CD-rom :)

Ha, I was reading about that on bulbapedia yesterday. I think I may have had it way back but I don't really remember. What I DO remember playing is the Game Boy game! That was fun.

Just to bad I quit collecting cards again. I don't think I have much good cards to scan. Maybe Zekrom and Reshriram

Oh cool I didn't know you'd started collecting again, even if you have quit now. Feel free to take photos of your collection to show them off here. This thread isn't only about the online game :)

I remember a long while back you told me you had a Charizard. I bought a Japanese base set Charizard off ebay since then. Mint condition and it was a bargain!

Nothing changed the game is pretty much the same as when we where young xD

The fundamentals of the game have always been the same, but they tweaked it a lot over the years. The cool thing about the Black and White series is that they've taken it back to basics and started building it up again, so it's kind of like a reboot of the game. The biggest changed I've noticed from the original TCG rules is the "Supporter", "Ace Spec, and "Tool" trainers cards, and EX Pokémon, which are powerful but when they're defeated the winner takes two prize cards instead of one. They're are probably a few other new things, but otherwise it's the same as the original card game from what I can tell.

@Daniel_Newton Here's an update on my foil collection, not much has changed and I didn't quit on my AV break, 2 years ago when B&W came out :)

@Kelleth: Oh man, your collection puts mine to shame! You have two Charizards and two Venasaurs? Lucky.

Looks like you have quite a few Level X cards. I have a Mewtwo Lv. X, it's one of my favourite cards.

I'll have to post some photos of my stuff soon. I've got the Mewtwo Collection Box coming in the post, can't wait to put that jumbo card on my shelf!

@Daniel_Newton: Cool! I forgot which Giant cards I got, think it was Archeus, and 2 Yu-Gi-Oh cards.

The only time I was ALMOST tempted to buy a new box from pokemon was the cute set a year back, DAT Meloetta card. SO DAMN CUTE!

@Acura_Max: @Daniel_Newton: btw if any of you want my extra shiny Gyarados be free to ask, Its just taking space really :)

@Kelleth: Thanks for the offer, but I already have Gyarados both in original base set and base set 2. I'd also be a little worried that it might get lost in the post from Holland to the UK! Maybe Acura_Max needs it.

Club Update: Annual Rotation

Hey guys, if you didn't already know, the 2013 Pokémon World Championships are happening right now. Shortly after they're over there will be a rotation. This means some of the older card expansions will become unplayable in the "Modified" format, and new expansions will soon be added starting with Black & White: Plasma Blast. I've updated the main post with the list of expansions and info.

Also, I've changed the player list into an overall leaderboard to make things even more competitive. I'm currently in first place. I have a fresh deck and I'm taking on all challengers!

Edit: Whoops, I meant Plasma Blast, not Plasma Storm. My bad!

Hey guys, just wanted to give you a quick warning about the online game; NEVER post links in the chat system.

I tried logging in today and was greeted with the message "Your account has been suspended." After checking my emails it turns out the offence was posting a link in the chat system (despite the fact that it was a Pokémon-related link, and posted in a private chat with Acura_Max). My account has been muted for two days (which explains why I wasn't able to talk to AM briefly yesterday) and the entire account has been suspended for one day.

I was actually trying to help Acura_Max built his deck and the link was to a pro player explaining his own deck, so I might contact support and see if I can wriggle myself out of the suspension. It seems like an automated system that just detected the link and suspended me. I'd rather get this "offence" wiped off of my account record if I can.

So yeah, I just thought I'd let you know so you don't make the same mistake I did!

No worries guys, I went through customer support and explained the situation and they wiped the suspension. I'm a free man!

This looks like it could become a popular card from the new Plasma Blast expansion:

Caitlin (Supporter Card)

Put as many cards from your hand as you like on the bottom of your deck in any order. Then, draw a card for each card you put on the bottom of your deck.

It sounds pretty similar to Colress, currently a popular card in top tier decks. Though Colress is great when you have a small hand (or just Colress itself) but there are lots of Pokémon out on the bench.

Colress (Supporter)

Shuffle your hand into your deck. Then, draw a number of cards equal to the number of Benched Pokémon (both yours and your opponent's).

I wonder if we'll start to see a mixture of the two in new decks, should be interesting.

The stream for the Pokémon Trading Card Game World Championships is live and the action will be starting soon!

Hey guys, I hadn't come here yet so I apologize, lol.

I'm looking forward to battling some of you, add me on the game? ( greenicecube ) - My user.

Me and Daniel had the closest battle yesterday, neck and neck the whole way through the battle and then Daniel pulled ahead for the win right at the end, good game, good fun. I will get him though.

I have a load of cards I would probably trade with you or give you as I only use a 3rd of my overall cards.

Don't be afraid to message I will try to be lovely ;).

If you ever want to battle me send me a message or just invite me I would probably accept :).

Good luck to you all, and have fun.

Kind regards,

Ciaran.

@CiaranShakespeare: Cool I'll do so when I figure out how xD

Where on the booster packs are the codes you need to redeem to get cards in the game? I got B&W ones still left in the tin.

They started doing the codes in one of the Black & White expansions, but not the first set. They come on cards inside the booster packs, you get one code card in each pack.
