Does anyone still play the TCG?

I really only collected the cards up to Gen 2, but after that I just forgot about them.

I'm thinking of purchasing the Skrelp and Dragalge cards in the Flashfire pack though, just for collection's sake.

I found a Pokemon card on the ground in a parking lot the other day...
Does that count?

I did for a while, but got really sick of it.

Don't try to seriously play it unless you have a ton of money to waste. Pretty much everyone runs the exact same two or three types of decks, and getting the cards necessary for those decks will require a lot of money or luck.

I bought the HGSS Umbreon deck for the heck of it. I used to play it online until hearthstone came along.

Really? How much do the cards even cost?

I took a look at some of the new cards and there seems to be such a power creep. The cards I own from Gens 1 and 2 have like 2 Water energy for 20 damage... but now 2 Waters is like 50 damage + some positive effect. O_O

I hear a lot of good things about that game, but I don't have time to try it out. >_>

Card games in general get expensive fast. Fun to play with friends, but to play competitively you need a lot of $$$
