Just got a base deck for my birthday from a friend as kind of a gag gift. It re-ignited my interest in the pokeman card game.

Bought three booster packs today and lo and behold I found this little ****er in there:



needless to say, I'm pretty ****ing stoked.

Although I'm DEEPLY saddened that I can't find any of my old cards.

So TCG players young, old, current, and former discuss your experiences. Cards you had, battles won and lost, and the like.

I remember when I tried to get into the cards, all I had were 50 Machops and like 3 Fighting Energies That's all. That's all I could ever get my hands on.

It will put everyone to shame.

I will stand by all this drinking if it helps me through these days,
It takes a long time just to get this all straight.

When I was 12, I swear to God, I was the Tri-City Pokemon TCG League Grass gym leader. I still have a badge or two left over.

I still have my library, too. A healthy 3000 optimized cards.

Society's doing great. There's a rise of people like PlayMadness. I feel pretty good about the way things are going.

I'm sorry Pokemon TCG is the worst pile of feces ever. It was confusing as hell, I don't think me and friends ever played it the correct way. Magic or Pokemon on the gameboy was and still is the way to go.

I've got to say, that is a freaking sweet title to hold.

I always learned how to play all the TCGs... but nobody else ever did. All they did was trade. If ****ing sucked.


I know. I hated actually fighting with people when I was 10 because I thought the energies were useless and I couldn't figure out how to play.

I used to think I was bad-ass because I shelled out $32 for a Blastoise and I figured out a way to defeat Charizard if I ever faced one. I thought I was the ****, haha.

I still have a big binder of pokemon cards somewhere in my room. I took it out and looked at them a few weeks ago for the lulz. Oh the nostalgia.

EDIT: to the guy above me
Yeah I know, those new cards look really friggin goofy. I like the old, more plain ones better

Yeah... the first 150, and the original tv series were the ****. The games RBY and GS were awesome, but after that, things just kinda went south... I think they're somewhere around 450-500 pokemon now... it's ****ing stupid. When I was a kid, you could list off every single pokemon, and that was ****ing cool. Now, you do the same and you're the loser with WAY too much time to memorize ****.

I never liked the show much. I believe the last game I played was crystal. I had guide books to help memorize evolve levels, etc.

Pokemon as the first CCG I tried, and man, it's such a blast. I learned MTG since then. What happened to Pokemon? Is it still fun?
