Pokemon Cards

Posted by ambercrystal , 11 January 2011 · 514 views

Hey everyone! Recently I have been really addicted to my Pokemon cards. I am trying my hardest to complete all the subsets from HeartGold and SoulSilver. I am doing pretty well so far. I only need a few more cards from each set. However, this is the point where I begin to get frustrated.

You see, I am pretty lucky with my cards. I completed over half the HGSS Undaunted set (92 cards)with five packets of boosters. But now that I only have a few more to get I just cannot find them. They seem to cower from me while all the over confident pokemon like Zubat won't leave me alone! I am past the point of booster packs. It is less fun, but now I must resort to ebay to find the cards that I need. Perhaps I can even sell some of my doubles on there too, so that I can make some money back to buy the cards on ebay.

Oh, and the only reason that my dad lets me buy the amount of cards that I do (at least three packs a week- I can't help having such a serious addiction) is because I told him how much of an investment they would be in the future (not that I really ever intend on selling my actual collections- only the doubles that I don't need for decks). Ah the joys of being over eighteen and still living at home.

Anyway, wish me luck in my increasingly difficult hunt to collect 'em all!

An investment? Really? He swallowed that?


I have an assload of pokecards too, went through the same phase at about the same age (pokecard resurgance that is) and one day I might get them sorted out so I can battle NinjaCatfish again. To the background music of the duel theme from the GBC game.

I bought some bootleg cards about 6 months ago that I blogged about here, but have thought about getting a 'proper' starter set for my player 2 and myself... are there two different Series running at the moment?

I like the artwork of Pokemon cards, but nowadays they look cheap and confusing compared to when I played with them in the 90's.

They have definitely changed. I quite enjoy the artwork, and am working on collecting a full set of Eevee evolutions because I love them and they are pretty. The paper quality has also improved a great deal.
But I agree. With all the new Poke Powers and such it can get confusing to play.
