Pokemon Favorites, Then and Now

By Rika24

Does anyone remember their first favorite Pokemon, and is it still your favorite? I remember that when I first watched it, Pikachu was my favorite. I still like Pikachu, but he’s nowhere near my top 10 favorites anymore. Pikachu was first knocked out of the number one spot by Charmander, then Eevee, then Charizard. As it stands now, Charizard (tied with Charmander), Jolteon, and Ninetales are my top three favorites.

I remember feeling so bad for the Charmander that was abandoned by his trainer, yet he still waited in the rain. I guess it’s the loyalty and cuteness of Charmander that made him my favorite, beating Pikachu for the top spot. Charmander is still to this day my number one favorite starter. When Charmander evolved into Charmeleon I wasn’t too happy because of how he wouldn’t listen to Ash.

Pokemon EX And Lv. X Cards

By Anonymous

Pokemon Ex and Lv. X cards were the new versions of ultra rares back in the day. EX cards were a fancy way of showing a very strong and rare cards. You used to be able to use EX cards in decks but not anymore.

EX cards were only available in EX sets. Like EX Dragon Frontiers where you can get EX’s like Dragonite, or EX Sandstorm where you can get a Wailord EX. All EX cards have a holographic border and background. An EX card had EX after the name of the card. EX’s weren’t that hard to pull, they are like the ultra rare primes we have today. You can get them in any pack but the ratio of pulling one varied. They aren’t like normal rares you can get in packs they are ultra rares and sometimes can be very expensive depending what and how rare the card is.

Shining Pokemon Cards

By Anonymous

Shining Pokemon cards are only available in the Neo Destiny and Neo Revelation sets. There are ten shining cards in all. The shinings are Charizard, Tyranitar, Celebi, Gyarados, Magikarp, Noctowl, Steelix, Raichu, Kabutops, and Mewtwo. This set is also very difficult to complete like the gold star set. It is hard to pull them from packs and can get very expensive if you think of buying them. The shining cards are very unique compared to normal holographic pokemon cards. The shining pokemon in the card is not colorized, that specific pokemon is just pure silver holographic but that’s just in the Neo Destiny set. In the Neo Revelation set the shining Gyarados and Magikarp are just shiny looking. They are different colors like Pokemon gold star cards.

Pokemon Gold Star Cards

By Anonymous

Pokemon gold stars are the card versions of shiny Pokemon. On gold star cards at the end of each card name there will be a gold star; hence the name gold star cards. There are 27 star cards. The star cards are only made of specific Pokemon. The gold stars are of Kyogre, Alakazam, Mewtwo, Mew, Espeon, Entei, Suicune, Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Charizard, Umbreon, Raikou, Metagross, Rayquaza, Celebi, Groudon, Jolteon, Flareon, Latias, Latios, Gyarados, Vaporeon, Torchic, Mudkip, and Treeko.

Completing the gold star set is like completing any other TCG set but much more difficult. There is very few people who have completed this set. The gold star Pokemon are just shiny Pokemon converted into cards. Like shiny Pokemon the coloration of the Pokemon is different. There might be a big difference or sometimes you can barely notice the difference. Like Rayquaza gold star the coloration of the Rayquaza is black instead of green. Gold stars are extremely hard to get. They are only available in some sets. Like Pikachu star in Holon Phantoms, or Mew and Charizard star in EX Dragon Frontiers, or Celebi and Alakazam in Ex Crystal Guardians.

All About Charizard

By Anonymous

What does everybody love about this orange dragon? What’s so special about it? Charizard is one of the most famous starter Pokemon. It is a fire type Pokemon. Charizard’s first evolution is Charmander, Charmander evolves into Charmeleon at level sixteen then into Charizard at level thirty-six. This Pokemon can use flying type abilities as well as dragon ones. It became famous in the anime when Ash evolved his Charmeleon into Charizard in the episode “Attack of the Prehistoric Pokemon”, where Charizard saved Ash from the claws of an Aerodactyl.

Pokemon Deck Boxes For All

By Legendslugia251

Pokemon deck boxes are one of the items merchandise many TCG players in the states love to have and to store their decks in. While in America the past years during the EX series line we got deck boxes for pre-releases but the boxes themselves were not up to the standards of the Japanese ones in the players view. The first few which were Gengar, Zangoose and Blastoise looked alright but after just a few uses some of them started to loose their stickiness on the cover and were very easy to break in the long run.

The last deck box that America was suppose to get was the Latios and Latias one but due to the delay of shipment America never got them in time for the pre-release. Of course all deck boxes go through the wear and tear phrase depending how the player decides to keep them in.

Dragon type Pokemon

By Leonie Herson

Throughout the Pokemon generations, the variety of dragon and dual-type dragon Pokemon has increased. Starting with the Dratini line, which was pure dragon type; this has expanded to new electric-dragon and fire-dragon types of the fifth generation’s Zekrom and Reshiram.

In addition, the number of dragon type Pokemon found within each generation of games has rapidly increased. In generation one there was only Dratini, with its evolutions Dragonair and Dragonite. Gold, Silver and Crystal had Kingdra: the final evolution of the Horsea line, whereas Sapphire, Ruby and Emerald boasted six new dragon types (not including evolutions). This expanded to a further four new dragons in Diamond, Pearl and Platinum with finally six more in the latest generation of Pokemon Black and White.

Is It Better To Collect Older Or Newer Pokemon Cards?

By Anonymous

There are many Pokemon card collectors out there. Some mostly collect the older kinds of cards like ones from base set or jungle. Some mostly collect the newer stuff like ones from Heart Gold Soul Silver or HS Triumphant. But there is a constant debate on which cards are better. The older cards or the newer ones? Which one are you for?

I collect Pokemon cards myself and I like both kinds of cards. But some just don’t agree. Base set and the other older sets contain the original 150 Pokemon. Such as Charizard, Blastoise, and Venusaur. Heart Gold and Soul Silver and the newer sets contain newer kinds of cards like primes, legends, and shinies. But today the older sets are the ones that are more expensive than the newer ones. Packs of base set and such cannot be found at stores anymore, that’s why they are more expensive. But some old school collectors don’t care about the price.

General Knowledge Of The Fire Type Pokemon

By Boyd Nixon

The fire type is one of the many types of pokemon and is in my opinion, one of the best. They are an all around good type because they usually can learn very powerful moves such as fire blast and eruption but can also learn power-boosting moves such as sunny day. Fire moves are super effective against bug, grass, ice, and steel types, doing two times damage to a foe with one or more of those types combined. They only do half damage to rock, dragon, fire, and water. Although they are damaged twice as much by ground, rock, and water moves but most fire types can learn a move called solar beam, a grass type move, which is super effective against the types that are super effective to fire types.
