I. Version: 0.8 - Updated When: 2/13/06- KB: 163K
-------------------------------------------------

Just found this pretty big list of facts and decks on my computer and it
brought me back to the good ol' days of this game. I was never
really a big fan of Pokemon in general, but the game always had a
decent strategy element that was interesting to me. I didn't
care for collecting the cards much, but this simple game allowed
for an easy and fun way to play the game without the hassle. So I
basically just had to reformat all of this information into a FAQ
that will hopefully help you assemble a competitive deck. To the
FAQmobile!

                                1. Why Make It?
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

I've always been a gaming fan, and GameFAQs has helped me out with a lot of
things: it is always a reliable source for codes, it has reviews by the
gamers, for other gamers, and best of all, has "homemade" FAQs submitted by
gamers for free. I'm sure like most of you, GameFAQs has saved me a bundle of
time and money, for if I get stuck on an area, no longer must I search the
Internet through the fake crap or go out and buy a $15 strategy guide. So what
I'm saying is, I "owe" GameFAQs, and this is my way of paying it back. Plus
this is just a kick ass GameBoy game.

Any questions you have for me that are NOT about this or one of my other
FAQs can be answering by emailing me with the topic of the email being

FAQ on it, check there first.

                           1. Basics of a Deck
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

When building a deck, the most important aspect is balance. A harmony is
achieved when the trainers supplement and aid your pokes, and the amount of
energy as well as how you poke powers/attacks work well together create the
harmony that allow you to win. Whether it be fast paced or a stall fest, make
every card in your deck count, and make sure that every card's purpose
furthers the effectiveness of your strategy.

============
Card Balance
============


Balancing a deck is both a combination of card amount and card usage.
With all decks being the limited 60 cards, you have to choose your cards
wisely. For your standard deck, try to limit yourself to one or two
types of energy (Usually two). More is ok, but usually three and up are only
used with colorless types or specialty decks.

Pokemon Balance
---------------

When using evolution cards in tangent with basic pokemon cards,
the number of cards you choose is determined by your deck's strategy.
For example:

4x Base Pokemon
4x Stage 1 Pokemon
4x Stage 2 Pokemon (if applicable)

This layout would presume that most of your deck is going to be based on
the powers of that line of pokemon. Putting in 16 cards for one evolutionary
line means that your deck better be focused on those cards. Stage 1 evolutions
are more forgiving, but the 8x pokemon you use to form a max'd out stage 1
evolution line MUST be apart of your strategy. An example of this setup at
its finest would either be the "Rain Dance" deck:

4x Squirtle
4x Wartortle/Pokemon Breeder
4x Blastoise

In this deck the corresponding evolutionary line is the main
focal point, and all of the other cards in that deck are based off of their
power.

Another common setup of evolutionary chains is the more conservative
4 x 3 x 3 method:

4x Ghastly
3x Haunter (Fossil)
3x Gengar

Taken from the damage moving deck, this setup means that a majority of
the strategy is going to come from this line of Pokemon, but since
additional Pokemon cards are needed to pull it off, room has to be
made.

Other chains that I usually don't recommend using are the 4 x 3 x 2, and the
3 x 3 x 2. My only problem with both is the presence of only 2 stage 2
evolutionary cards. When you are dedicating space for the evolutionary
chain, you better make sure you use it. Thus, having 3 of any given stage
2 is better in my eyes because it allows for more chances of using your
evolved monster.

For Stage 1 evolution, either 4 x 4 or 4 x 3 or 3 x 3 or 3 x 2 all work
out well. Use whichever amount fits your strategy.


Trainer Balance
---------------

Trainers are a little less difficult to balance out. As long as you have
a satisfactory number (3 and up) for your strategy, trainer cards
ALWAYS come in handy. That being said, trainer cards also make my
exception in that in certain cases, putting one in a deck is ok.
Throwing in a last ditch Computer Search or Item Finder can be ok if all
of the other aspects of your strategy are covered.


Energy Balance
--------------

Ah, now this can be tricky. It is hard to really gauge how much energy to
put in a deck. My best advice, take a look at your poke's attacks: do they
require a lot of discarding? Is your deck centered around your pokes? Are
most attacks around 3 energy? Then a decent amount of energy is required,
somewhere between 22-26. For the Haymaker and basic Pokemon type decks, energy
can be in the 17-22 range. Energy retrievals and pokemon powers can also
effect your energy, for example, in an 'Energy Trans' deck with Venasuar,
less energy is required because once Venasuar comes out, you can control
energy placement on your board at will. Choose wisely.


Begginer Mistakes
-----------------

Most beginners tend to make the 3 following mistakes when making decks:

1. Trainers have no regard and the deck, and very little are present.

2. They have no real strategy.

3. Basics that don't evolve, such as Hitmonchan and Electabuzz, are looked down
upon. The thought is: "Only 20 damage for a Rare?" Overrated cards, such as
Base Set Zapdos, however, are seen as powerful because of their potential to do
high amounts of damage. The fact that you have to discard or the energy amount
required for the attack isn't considered.

==============================
How To Avoid Beginner Mistakes
==============================

A list of all the aspects of deck making and a few tips on how to avoid making
beginner mistakes in each area.

Strategy
--------

A good deck needs a strategy, a purpose. This is the main mistake for a
beginner. Many just pick two colors and some of their favorite Pokemon and
build the deck around those. A strategy normally envolves a certain card or
combo that has an interesting and useful attack or Pokepower. An example would
be RainDance decks that revolve around Blastoise and his 'RainDance' power.
Make sure your deck as a strategy other than just 'eventually' dealing damage
to the opponent.

Color / Type
------------

Try to stay focused with the strategy, remembering that 1, or 2-3 colors are
generally ok when the Pokemon lines and trainer cards are in order

Pokemon
-------

These also fall in behind the strategy, but once again you will have some
options. Another big thing I overlooked as a beginner was Haymaker Pokémon. For
those who don't know, Haymakers are non-evolution Pokémon with high (about 70)
HP; cheap, 1, 2, or 3 energy attacks that deal fairly high (10-40) damage; and
low retreat. Good examples are Electabuzz, Scyther, Fossil Magmar, Promo
Mewtwo, etc. They look weak compared to the heavy evolutions with 100 HP and 60
damage, but they're fast and don't have to deal with evolution. Back up your
evolutions with some Haymaker Pokémon for dealing damage while you build your
bench. The #1 most important aspect is to have multiple copies of a card, in
general. If it's an important card, have 3 or 4. If it's good but not that
important, use 2. Almost never use just one, except for decks that specialize.

Evolution
---------

Don't go with one of each stage, you'll never get them when you need them. Most
often, you should pyramid the evolutions.

Trainers
--------

Extremely important. Don't overlook these.
Basics that should be in every deck:

3-4x Bill *Exception* Stall Decks

2-3x Professor Oak *Exception* Stall Decks

2-4x Gust of Wind

3-4x Energy Removal

and/or

2-3x Super Energy Removal

Search These are just some examples of trainers found in most decks. Other
trainers should, of course, support the strategy

Energy
------

This most often depends on the deck. Just try and make sure your energy is
enough, but doesn't overly clog your deck.


========================
Creating Focus in a Deck
========================

As an example, I will modify the game's preset "Squirtle & Friends" deck
without creating an archtype deck (the most obvious being turning this deck
into a Rain Dance deck.)


Pre-Set Squirtle & Friends
--------------------------

Pokemon (27)
  2x Squirtle
  1x Wartortle
  1x Blastoise
  2x Seel
  1x Dewgong
  1x Goldeen
  1x Seaking
  1x Staryu
  1x Starmie
  1x Lapras
  1x Machop
  1x Machoke
  2x Geodude
  1x Hitmonchan
  2x Abra
  1x Kadabra
  2x Ghastly
  1x Haunter
  2x Rattata
  1x Raticate
  1x Meowth

Trainers (8)
  1x Professor Oak
  1x Bill
  1x Switch
  1x Pokeball
  1x Scoop Up
  1x Item Finder
  1x Potion
  1x Full Heal

Energy (25)
  11x Water Energy
  6x Fighting Energy
  8x Psychic Energy


Ok, first off, this deck has basically no balance whatsoever.
Therefore, I am merely going to doctor it to show you how to focus
a deck, not create a whole new tournament ready deck, so just
follow my lead to see how to properly focus your card choices.

Pokemon Changes
---------------

We are going to need to slim this deck down to two energy choices,
there are just way too many pokemon chains. Like I said, this is
just an example, so I am just going to pick a type to deal away with.
Logically, since a majority of the water pokemon on this team is weak
to lightning, keeping the fighting/ground pokemon may help. Thus, I do
away with the psychics:

Pokemon
  2x Squirtle
  1x Wartortle
  1x Blastoise
  2x Seel
  1x Dewgong
  1x Goldeen
  1x Seaking
  1x Staryu
  1x Starmie
  1x Lapras
  1x Machop
  1x Machoke
  2x Geodude
  1x Hitmonchan
  2x Rattata
  1x Raticate
  1x Meowth

Now to weed out what evolutionary chains we don't like. For water, I
would personally just scratch out the Goldeen/Seaking right away,
as they just don't have any kind of power. Also, with no Graveler
or any kind of focus on the Geodude line in this deck, cut out
the awkwardly placed Geodudes.

Pokemon
  2x Squirtle
  1x Wartortle
  1x Blastoise
  2x Seel
  1x Dewgong
  1x Staryu
  1x Starmie
  1x Lapras
  1x Machop
  1x Machoke
  1x Hitmonchan
  2x Rattata
  1x Raticate
  1x Meowth

Now its time to beef up some of the remaining lines and cut out
the stragglers that are left and don't fit with the final product.
Since this isn't a Rain Dance focused deck, just cut out the Blastoise.
This allows you to beef up the versatile Seel/Dewgong line, a basic
with 60 HP and a Stage 1 that does 50 damage ain't too shabby for just
a regular casual deck. Lapras is a good opener and can help stall or
set you up for your later evolutions, so keep that. Starmie/Staryu
can also be beefed for additional attack. Not to sound like a broken
record, but remember this is just an EXAMPLE. Substituting and balancing
decks is a matter of analysis and personal taste. Substitute the lines
as you see fit. For example, I could possibly see Gyrados replacing
Dewgong, and etc. Let's see what we have so far:

Pokemon
  4x Seel
  3x Dewgong
  3x Staryu
  2x Starmie
  3x Lapras
  1x Machop
  1x Machoke
  1x Hitmonchan
  2x Rattata
  1x Raticate
  1x Meowth

Now to focus the fighting line. At this point, I am not seeing the colorless
being all that useful, so axe them. Up the Hitmochans for early striking,
and solidify the Machop/Machoke line for more staying power.

Pokemon
  4x Seel
  3x Dewgong
  3x Staryu
  2x Starmie
  3x Lapras
  3x Machop
  2x Machoke
  3x Hitmonchan

Now that I have my strains picked out, I need to analyze pokemon amount.
Looking back, 23 Pokemon may be too many for this deck, so last ditch
cuts and additions are made at your leisure. Here's what my finish product
ended up looking like:

Pokemon (19)
  4x Seel
  3x Dewgong
  3x Lapras
  3x Machop
  2x Machoke
  4x Hitmonchan

I ended up cutting out Starmie for additional early game power with
Hitmonchan.

Now for trainers.

Trainer Changes
---------------

Let's see what we have here:

Trainers
  1x Professor Oak
  1x Bill
  1x Switch
  1x Pokeball
  1x Scoop Up
  1x Item Finder
  1x Potion
  1x Full Heal

Now that we cut down on the pokemon amount, we can add much needed
trainers. If you don't know by now, you will, ADD BILL TO YOUR DECK.
That card is a godsend, and there is no drawback to it. Prof Oak
is also good in times of need, so those two cards should be bumped
up immediately:

Trainers
  2x Professor Oak
  4x Bill
  1x Switch
  1x Pokeball
  1x Scoop Up
  1x Item Finder
  1x Potion
  1x Full Heal

Since we have Evolution cards and its not a stall deck, get rid
of the lone Scoop Up. Also cut out the lonely Switch and Full Heal,
as they are not needed.

Trainers
  2x Professor Oak
  4x Bill
  1x Pokeball
  1x Item Finder
  1x Potion

Now we play to our cards. With the presence of Machop, Lapras, and
Hitmonchan for early game, some Pluspowers would definitely help their
low energy attacks out. Also, because of our ability to do 50 damage with
Machoke and Dewgong, some Gust of Winds should be added in order to kill
off important basic pokemon that may later evolve into powerful creatures.
We could also throw in 2 Computer Searches in order to find that evolution
creature or a professor Oak in times of need.

Trainers
  2x Professor Oak
  4x Bill
  3x Pluspower
  3x Gust of Wind
  2x Computer Search
  1x Pokeball
  1x Item Finder
  1x Potion

Cut out the lone non useful items we will see what we have.

Trainers
  2x Professor Oak
  4x Bill
  3x Pluspower
  3x Gust of Wind
  2x Computer Search

It is always good to keep your enemy energy starved, and Energy
Removals will help with this deck because it will give us time to set
up our 3 Energy 50 Damage attacks while our basics keep pounding away
with one energy card.

Trainers
  2x Professor Oak
  4x Bill
  3x Pluspower
  3x Gust of Wind
  2x Computer Search
  4x Energy Removal
  2x Super Energy Removal

Energy Changes
--------------

Reformat the energy as you wish, remembering to take out pokemon or
trainers in order to keep the 60 card amount. I ended up using this:

Energy (21)
 12x Water Energy
  9x Fighting Energy

More water because the fighting type in our deck can manage with only
one until evolution.


Overall
-------

Pokemon (19)
  4x Seel
  3x Dewgong
  3x Lapras
  3x Machop
  2x Machoke
  4x Hitmonchan

Trainers (20)
  2x Professor Oak
  4x Bill
  3x Pluspower
  3x Gust of Wind
  2x Computer Search
  4x Energy Removal
  2x Super Energy Removal

Energy (21)
 12x Water Energy
  9x Fighting Energy

I played a few practices matches within the game at all of the gyms,
and was able to get a 3rd/4th turn Dewgong/Machoke pretty easily. I also
won every match, but that's mostly because the trainers are horrible.
Overall, this deck will do well in casual play, but like many, will
probably fall short to more competitive archtypes, like Haymakers.

It serves as a decent guide to balancing a deck however, as this deck
will fair far better than the original.

                         2. Cards You Need to Have
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Basically a "Best of" list, but more than that. These cards have been picked
for their usefulness is most situations, and a few standouts for their
abilities to have whole decks be based around them.

ANALYSIS COMING SOON.

Top 5 Trainers
--------------

1. Bill

2. Professor Oak

3. Super Energy Removal

4. Gust of Wind

5. Pluspower


Top 5 Pokemon
-------------

1. Scyther

2. Electabuzz

3. Wigglytuff

4. Chansey

5. (tied) Hitmonchan/Blastoise

(And you wonder why most Haymakers are made of these cards...)


1. Scyther: This is the ultimate "all-arounder" Pokemon card. No color for it's
primary attack (making DC on this a must-have), it also sports high HP for a 
basic, NO RETREAT (huge for flexibility), resistance to fighting, and can work
in just about any deck. Works great with Venasaur, awesome in Haymakers and in
anti-Haymakers (imagine that, stops Hitmochan in its path), and with its high
HP and ability to use any color, you never know when you'll see a Scyther pop
up in someone's deck. 

tl;dr - Destroys Hitmochan (former powerhouse), super flexible card (no pun)

2. Electabuzz: Quite simply put the most powerful base Pokemon, no evos, but
can do 40 damage with two energy! And only one of those has to be electric, so
he is also fairly flexible and requires little electric energy to function.
When his 30/40 attack backfires, the 10 damage hurts but is nowhere close to
ruining this card. Weakness to fighting and no resistance put him below
Scyther without question

tl;dr - Big power with a little gamblin' luck

3. Wigglytuff: All I have to say is put this in a deck with strong basice (ie
'Do the Wave') and if you have enough search cards like Bill and Oak and the 
like, you'll have a turn two or three Wiggly dealing out 60 damage for 3
colorless before the opponent even knew what hit them.

tl;dr - Do the goddamn Wave

4. Chansey: 120 FREAKING HP IN A BASIC? Super stall card, colorless, deals
out HUGE damage when it has to. Another super flexible card.

tl;dr - 120 FREAKING HP IN A BASIC

5. Hitmochan/Blastoise: Hitmonchan use to be THE card before Scyther, but
with everyone and their mom playing Scyther, the resistance is just too
much for Chan to stand up with. Blastoise has an entire deck based around
his Pokemon Power, so that does the talking for him.

tl;dr - Scythe killed Chan's shine, RAIN DANCE

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
                          3. Competitive Decks
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

I will list here the tried a few decks that have found success in both casual
and tournament play. Although updated now, these decks have proven over and
over again through tournament wins to detailed analysis at Pojo.com to be
made to win. I will list the basic structure for each "arch-type", and then
list a few common hybrids that are also useful.

============
The Haymaker

We all love it and fear it. Built for speed, the original Haymaker is a go-to
competitive deck, made to win with fast and brutal basic Pokemon attacks with
the aid of numerous trainers.

Created by Pojo.com legend by Scott Gerhardt, this deck takes advantage of
promo Mewtwo's ability to attach 2 energy first turn in order for the
optimum 2nd turn 40 damage hit. Looks shaky at first, but this is a deck
built by an expert, and it is solid.

Potpourri
=========

Another deck idea mastered by Pojo.com legend Scott Gerhardt, the
Potpourri is designed to contain weaknesses to all of the decks
in the current metagame, and for its time, it was very effective.
Again, it goes against the basic standing by having seemingly
miscellaneous one trick cards, but in actuality it is all set up
to take out the current metagame of haymakers and the likes.
Solid deck. The variations are limitless to this, try and
create your own.

============
Energy Trans
============

The basic idea around this deck is to get a Venasuar is play as quickly as
possible, so that you may lay down your limited amount of energy cards but be
able to 'trans'fer them around as needed. Be sure to take advantage of Energy
Transing all the energy to a non injured pokemon, and then playing the Pokemon
Center so that you lose no energy for a clean sweep of your damage. Tricky

User Submitted Decks

I will post any decks submitted to me from email, etc. here.

GameFAQs account/alias they used in their email.

User's Strategy: Bring out Moltres lv 37 and equip it with enough energy to 
use dive bomb whilst backing it up with Charizard/Magmar lv 24, use 
imposter professor oak to drain the opponents deck whilst attacking the 
**** out of them with your powerful pokemon. Avoid using energy 
discarding attacks/cards.


Zapdos Only Deck - By: Boozman
------------------------------

Pokemon (4)
   2X Legendary Zapdos
   2X Kabuto

Trainer (34)
   1X Professor Oak
   4X Bill
   2X Mr. Fuji
   2X Mysterious fossil
   3X Energy Search
   2X Super energy Removal
   2X Switch
   4X Computer Search
   2X Item Finder
   4X Potion
   4X Super Potion
   4X Full Heal

Energy (22)
   22X Lightning Energy

User's Strategy: The point of the deck is to get Zapdos out and power it up 
quickly. Usually you will be able to attack on the third turn to do 70 damage. 
100 HP and All the trainers help keep Zapdos Alive. Since it is the only 
basic pokemon in the deck, you will always have it in your hand to play 
at the start of the game. 

One problem that i face with this deck is if a person plays alot of 
mysterious fossils or clefairy dolls becuase Zapdos' attack is random 
and so killing those trainers just wastes time. Another is that becuase 
Zapdos' attack is so high, it cannot kill a Mr. Mime. Thus Kabuto is put 
in.  Since it is a Stage 1 pokemon, it does not get in the way of you 
drawing Zapdos on the first turn.


Modified 'Do the Wave' - By: -=Nethervoid=-
-------------------------------------------

Pokemon (18)
   4x Scyther
   4x Jigglypuff
   3x Wigglytuff
   4x Hitmonchan
   3x Movie Promo Mewtwo

Trainers (24)
   4x Bill
   4x Prof. Oak
   4x Energy Removal
   4x Gust of Wind
   4x Plus Power
   4x Computer Search

Energy (18)
   4x DCE
   7x Psychic
   7x Fighting

User's Strategy: The reason for this list is that regardless of what your 
opening hand is, you can fix it to the point where you can either be swinging 
with a Mewtwo on turn 2 and have a DCE on a Jigglypuff waiting for the evo, 
or a fully powered Wigglytuff on turn 2 going the distance and just
wrecking house. There's never a situation with this deck where you
really need a SER and if you do, you can Comp. Search up a second ER.

You also don't need 4x Wigglytuff; if one dies it's done enough damage
for the second one to finish the job no matter what it is. If you can't
find a Wiggly for one reason or another, you have enough dig/search with
this build to get it for turn 2. You get really flooded with dead ends
if you use the build you have between pitching needed cards to the Item
Finder and losing energy without a way to get it back to the SER. You
want consistency and the best way is with 4 each of the most powerful
Trainer cards available and the same for your Pokemon, running 2 of
anything in a deck like this spells disaster.


Eirik's Nidoking Deck - By: Eirik 
---------------------------------

Pokemon (15)

  2x Gust of Wind
  2x Gambler

Energy (26)
  14x Grass Energy
  8x   Psychic Energy
  4x   Double Colorless Energy

User's Strategy: Strategy here is to get Nidoking up as fast as you can and use 
Toxic to beat'em up. If the opponent doesn't swap the Pokemon, Pokemon with 60 
HP or under is dead before your turn. Rince repeat all over again. And if you 
get your Nidokings beated up, Use Hypno and Scyther to take care of rest.

User's Strategy: Computer Search and Item Finder serve as a toolbox to 
access Gust of Wind, Full Heal, Pokemon Trader, and Switch.

You should be able to play professor oak 2-4 times each game and the only 
problems I tend to have is in long games possibly decking myself but even 
that shouldn't be a problem after playing the deck a few times.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

This game is really limited to two styles of play, the actual story mode, and
the 2-player link battle. After you (easily) conquer the story mode by either
your own means or by using this guide as help (you better...), it is finally
time to partake in the real game, head to head matches with other (presumably
good) people. These matches are what really bring the game to life and allow
the bigger aspect of strategy to shine through. To activate a link battle,
go to the left wing room in any gym and talk to one of the clerks behind
the counter.

What's a Pokémon?

Welcome to the world of Pokémon, a special place where people just like you
train to become the number-one Pokémon Master in the world!
But what is a Pokémon, you ask? "Pokémon are incredible creatures that share
the world with humans," says Professor Oak, the leading authority on these
monsters. "There are currently 150 documented species of Pokémon."
And your incredible task is to capture, train, and fight with all of them! It's
not easy, but once you get the hang of it, you'll know exactly which Pokémon to
choose for a battle. On your way to the top, you'll perfect your skills by
using your Pokémon to fight against other Pokémon trainers.
Each Pokémon has its own special fighting abilities. Though they come in many
shapes and sizes, even the smallest Pokémon can launch a fierce attack. Some
Pokémon grow, or evolve, into even more powerful creatures. But don't
worry-even your toughest Pokémon will be loyal to you!
Carry your Pokémon with you, and you're ready for anything! You've got the
power in your hands, so use it!
If you play the Pokémon Game Boy(r) game or watch the animated Pokémon show,
you already know the basic ideas and goals of the trading card game!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Gotta Catch 'Em All!

In the Pokémon trading card game, one of your goals is to collect each of the
cards, similar to your goal of collecting each of the Pokémon in the Game Boy
game. But not all Pokémon cards are as easy to catch as others. The Energy
cards are the most basic and most common kind of cards. Your Pokémon cards,
Evolution cards, and Trainer cards come in four different varieties: common
cards are marked in the bottom right-hand corner with a (Circle). Uncommon
cards are marked with a (Diamond), and rare cards are marked with a (Star). In
addition, some rare cards are printed using holographic foil. These "holo"
cards are the hardest to catch and collect. In addition, a limited quantity of
each set of Pokémon cards is printed with the symbol, which shows that those
cards are first-edition cards from that set. The same cards may be reprinted in
the future but never with the symbol, ensuring that your first-edition cards
will maintain their value!

If you're mostly interested in playing, there are always good cards appearing
in all levels of commonality. (Many of the most popular Pokémon-such as
Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur-are common cards.) This ensures
that players who buy different amounts of cards can still play and have a fun
and fair game.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What Do You Need to Play?

Well, you and your opponent will each need your own deck of 60 cards, a coin to
flip, and some counters to mark damage to your Pokémon. You can use pennies or
whatever else you want to if you run out of counters.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How to Win

In Pokémon, you can win three different ways. First, at the start of the game,
you set aside 6 of your cards as Prizes. Every time one of your opponent's
Pokémon is Knocked Out, you take 1 of your Prizes and put it into your hand.
When you've taken all 6 of your Prizes, you win the game! (You'll win most of
your games this way.) Second, you also win if your opponent doesn't have an
Active Pokémon (or a Benched Pokémon to replace it with) at the end of any
turn. And finally, you win if your opponent's deck is out of cards at the start
of his or her turn.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What's the Pokémon Game Like

You and your opponent take turns playing cards from your hands. Some of these
cards will be Basic Pokémon cards, Evolution cards that can grow them into
bigger and stronger Pokémon, or Energy cards that help Pokémon fight. You can
also play Trainer cards-these will do lots of different things to help you win.
You might have several Pokémon on the table at once, but only one of them
(called your "Active Pokémon") will be fighting for you at a time. The rest
will be sitting on your Bench in case you need them to fight. Every turn,
you'll have a chance to attack with your Active Pokémon, which will either do
damage to your opponent's Active Pokémon (called the "Defending Pokémon" during
your attack) or do something else to it, like making it Asleep, Confused,
Paralyzed, or Poisoned. If your attack does enough damage to Knock Out the
Defending Pokémon, you get to take 1 of your 6 Prizes. When you take your 6th
Prize (when 6 of your opponent's Pokémon have been Knocked Out), you win!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What Are the Different Kinds of Cards?

Basic Pokémon are your most important cards. They fight for you turn after turn
against your opponent's Pokémon.

Evolution cards are played on top of your Basic Pokémon (or sometimes on top of
other Evolution cards). They make your Pokémon bigger and more powerful.
Energy cards are attached to your Pokémon to give them the Energy they need to
use their attacks.

Trainer cards are one-shot cards that do something once and are then discarded.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Starting the Game

Shuffle your deck and draw a starting hand of 7 cards. Put the rest of your
deck face-down in front of you.

You and your opponent each choose a Basic Pokémon card (it'll say "Basic
Pokémon" in the upper left-hand corner) from your hands and put them face-down.
These will be your starting Active Pokémon.

Each player may, if he or she wishes, choose up to 5 Basic Pokémon from his or
her hand and put them face-down on his or her Bench (this is where Pokémon wait
when they're not the Active Pokémon).

Put the top 6 cards of your deck face-down in front of you. These are your
Prizes, which you take when your opponent's Pokémon are Knocked Out. You can't
look at a Prize card until you take it.

Flip a coin to decide who goes first. You can use your special Pokémon coin, if
you have one.

Flip over all the Active and Benched Pokémon that have been put on the table.
Be sure to leave room for your discard pile. All of your cards that get
discarded during the game, no matter how they get discarded, will go there.
During the game, you'll be putting more and more cards on the table. All the
cards on the table that are in the Active Pokémon area or on the Bench are
referred to as being "in play." Your deck, your Prizes, and the cards in your
discard pile are not considered to be "in play."

Pokémon cards, Evolution cards, and Energy cards will be on the table-"in
play"-after you play them from your hand. You can keep using those cards in
play turn after turn. Trainer cards, though, are used once and then discarded.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Let's Play!
As you play, you and your opponent take turns. During your opponent's turn, you
don't do anything except replace your Active Pokémon if it gets Knocked Out
(see below). During your turn, go through the steps below.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What Can You Do during Your Turn?

1) DRAW a card

You always begin your turn by drawing a card. (If your deck is empty at the
beginning of your turn, the game is over, and your opponent wins.)

2) DO ANY of the following in any order and as often as you like:

Put a Basic Pokémon on the Bench

Choose a Basic Pokémon from your hand and put it face-up on your Bench. You can
have no more than 5 Pokémon on your Bench at any time, so you can only put a
new Basic Pokémon there only if your Bench has 4 or fewer Pokémon on it.

Evolve a Pokémon in play

If you have a card in your hand that says "Evolves from so-and-so" and
so-and-so is the name of a Pokémon you already have in play, you may play that
card in your hand on top of the Pokémon so-and-so. This is called "evolving" a
Pokémon.
Example: Juliane has a card called Ninetales that says "Evolves from Vulpix,"
and she has a Vulpix card in play. She may play the Ninetales card on top of
the Vulpix card.

When a Pokémon evolves, it keeps all cards attached to it (Energy cards,
Evolution cards, etc.) and any damage it might already have, but the old
attacks and Pokémon Powers of the Pokémon it evolved from go away. All other
things about the Pokémon go away-Sleep, Confusion, Paralysis, Poison, or
anything else that might be the result of an attack some Pokémon made earlier.
Sorry, you can't evolve a Pokémon that you just played or evolved on that turn.
Also, neither player can evolve a Pokémon on the first turn. And finally, yes,
you can evolve a Pokémon on your Bench-that counts as "in play"!

Attach an Energy card to a Pokémon

Take an Energy card from your hand and attach it to one of your Pokémon in play
(put it under the Pokémon card).

Unlike most of the other things you can do during your turn, you may do this
only once during your turn. Also, remember that you can attach an Energy card
to a Pokémon on your Bench. After all, that's "in play," too!

Play a Trainer card

When you want to play a Trainer card, do what it says, then put it in the
discard pile.

Retreat your Active Pokémon

You may switch your Active Pokémon with one of the Pokémon on your Bench. To do
this, you must discard Energy attached to the Active Pokémon equal to the
Retreat Cost that's written in the lower right-hand corner. (You'll read more
about costs in the "Attack with Your Active Pokémon" section.) If you can't do
that, then you can't retreat. Pokémon with no Retreat Cost don't need to get
rid of any Energy when they retreat-they can retreat "for free."

A Pokémon that is Asleep or Paralyzed can't retreat. A Confused Pokémon can try
to retreat, but it might not succeed. (Why this might happen will be explained
later on in the rules.)

When your Active Pokémon goes to your Bench (whether it retreated or got there
some other way), it keeps any Energy cards, any Evolution cards, and any damage
counters it might already have. All other things about the Pokémon go
away-Sleep, Confusion, Paralysis, Poison, or anything else that might be the
result of an attack some Pokémon made earlier. All of these things go away.
If you retreat, you can still attack that turn with the new Active Pokémon.

Use a Pokémon Power

Some Pokémon have a special "Pokémon Power" that they can use when they're in
play. (Remember, Benched Pokémon are "in play," too.) Many of these Powers can
be used before you attack. Each Pokémon Power is different, though, so you
should read carefully to see how each Power works.

A Pokémon Power isn't the same as a Pokémon's attack, so if you use the Pokémon
Power, you can still attack!

3) ATTACK with your Active Pokémon

If you wish, you may have your Active Pokémon attack your opponent's Active
Pokémon (also called the "Defending Pokémon"). This is the last thing you can
do during your turn-you can't do anything else afterward. You can only attack
one time during your turn, and your Pokémon can only use one of its attacks
each turn. To attack, just tell your opponent which one of your Pokémon's
attacks you're using. You can only use an attack if you have at least the
required amount of Energy attached to your Active Pokémon.
The required amount is written to the left of the attack name.

Energy

Any kind of Energy can count toward Colorless Energy requirements. But only
Energy of the appropriate kind counts toward Energy requirements of that kind.
For example, you can use at attack with [FFC] next to it only if that Pokémon
has at least 3 Energy attached to it, at least 2 of which are Energy.
You have to have the required amount of Energy attached to a Pokémon to use its
attack, but you don't have to discard those cards to attack. The cards stay
attached to your Pokémon unless the card says otherwise!

Damage

When you attack, read the attack you're using and do what it says. For each 10
damage a Pokémon takes, put one damage counter on it. If a Pokémon ever has
total damage at least equal to its Hit Points (for example, 4 or more damage
counters on a Pokémon with 40 HP), it's immediately Knocked Out.

Weakness and Resistance

Some Pokémon have a Weakness or Resistance to Pokémon of certain other types.
(For example, Charmander has a Weakness to Pokémon.) A Defending Pokémon takes
double damage from a Pokémon that it has a Weakness to, and it takes 30 less
damage from a Pokémon that it has Resistance to.

Usually the attack won't depend on the order you do this in, but if it does,
then this is how you'll figure it out! First, you pay any costs (discarding
Energy cards, for example) before seeing what the attack does. Then damage
comes before any other effects. Also, Weakness is applied before other things
that might change the amount of damage.

What happens when your Pokémon is Knocked Out?

Whenever one of your Pokémon is Knocked Out, put its Basic Pokémon card and all
cards attached to it (Evolution cards, Energy cards, etc.) in your discard
pile. Your opponent then chooses one of his or her Prizes (even if you Knocked
Out your Pokémon yourself!) and puts it into his or her hand. After that, you
must replace your Active Pokémon with a Pokémon from your Bench. (If you can't
do this because your Bench is empty, you lose.) If your Active Pokémon and your
opponent's Active Pokémon are Knocked Out at the same time, the player whose
turn it is replaces his or her Pokémon last. The player whose turn it is
chooses his or her Prize last as well.

4) Your turn is OVER now

Sometimes there are things to do after your turn is over but before your
opponent's turn begins. After you've done those things, your opponent's turn
begins.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What Happens after Each Player's Turn?

After each player's turn, if either player's Active Pokémon is Poisoned, it'll
take damage, and if it's Asleep or Paralyzed it might recover. Then the next
player's turn begins.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How Do Sleep, Confusion, Paralysis, and Poison Work?

Some attacks cause the Defending Pokémon to be Asleep, Confused, Paralyzed, or
Poisoned. These things don't happen to a Benched Pokémon, only to an Active
Pokémon-in fact, if a Pokémon goes to the Bench, these things are removed from
it. And evolving a Pokémon also means it's no longer Asleep, Confused,
Paralyzed, or Poisoned.

Asleep

If a Pokémon is Asleep, it can't attack or retreat. As soon as a Pokémon is
Asleep, turn it sideways to show that it's Asleep. After each player's turn,
flip a coin. On a heads, the Pokémon wakes up (turn the card back right-side
up), but on a tails it's still Asleep, and you'll have to wait until after the
next turn to try to wake it up again.

Confused

If a Pokémon is Confused, you have to flip a coin whenever you try to attack
with it or whenever you try to make it retreat. Turn a Confused Pokémon with
its head pointed toward you to show it's Confused.
When you try to make a Confused Pokémon retreat, you first have to pay the
Retreat Cost by discarding Energy cards. Then flip a coin. On heads, you
retreat the Pokémon as normal. On tails, the retreat fails, and that Pokémon
can't try to retreat again that turn.
When you attack with a Confused Pokémon, you flip a coin. On heads, the attack
works normally, but on tails your Pokémon attacks itself with an attack that
does 20 damage. (If your Pokémon has a Weakness or Resistance to its own type,
or if there's some other effect that would alter the attack, apply these things
as usual.)

On tails, the Active Pokémon does 20 damage to itself even if its attack
normally doesn't do damage (like Squirtle's Withdraw attack).

Paralyzed

If a Pokémon is Paralyzed, it can't attack or retreat. Turn the Pokémon
sideways to show it's Paralyzed. If an Active Pokémon is Paralyzed, it recovers
after its player's next turn. Turn the card right-side up again.
What this means is that if your Pokémon gets Paralyzed, it will be out of
action on your next turn, and then it will be okay again.

Poisoned

If a Pokémon is Poisoned, place a "poison marker" on it to show that it's
Poisoned.

As long as it's still Poisoned, the Pokémon takes 10 damage after each player's
turn, ignoring Weakness and Resistance. If an attack would Poison a Pokémon
that's already Poisoned, it doesn't get doubly Poisoned; instead, the new
Poison condition replaces the old one.

Make sure whatever you use for a poison marker looks different from a damage
counter.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can Your Pokémon Be Asleep and Confused at the Same Time?

If a Pokémon is Asleep, Confused, or Paralyzed, and a new attack is made
against it that causes it to become Asleep, Confused, or Paralyzed, the old
condition is erased and only the new one counts. But these three conditions are
the only attack effects that erase each other. For example, a Pokémon can be
confused and Poisoned at the same time.

STOP READING NOW! You know enough to start playing, so play a few games before
you go on to the Expert Rules!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why Are There So Many Different Cards?

One of the things that makes Pokémon different from other card games is that
it's a trading card game. This means that there are lots of different cards
that you can collect and trade with your friends. Also, you aren't limited to
just playing the decks you buy-you can use all the different cards you have to
create totally new decks! A lot of the fun of a trading card game comes from
making different decks that use different strategies.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How Do You Make a New Deck?

Your deck has to have exactly 60 cards, and you can't have more than 4 of any
one card other than basic Energy cards in your deck. A card counts as the same
as another card if it has the same name-it doesn't matter whether the cards
have different art or come from different sets.

To make a new deck, first notice that all the cards other than the Trainers
have different Energy types on them. Your deck should probably include one or
two of the basic Energy types, and you can choose to add some Colorless Pokémon
if you like. If you just choose one Energy type, you will always have the right
kind of Energy for your Pokémon, but not as much variety. If you have several
Energy types, you'll have more Pokémon to choose from, but you'll run the risk
of sometimes not drawing the right type of Energy for your Pokémon. And be sure
your deck has enough Energy cards (most decks need 25 to 30).

Once you've chosen your Energy types, pick Pokémon and Trainer cards that work
well together. Do you want to build up big Pokémon to crush your opponent? Then
put in a lot of Evolution cards and some Trainers like Pokédex that help you
find those Evolution cards. Do you want to do a lot of damage to your
opponent's Pokémon very quickly? Then pick Pokémon that don't need to be
evolved and cards like PlusPower that do extra damage.

After you've made your deck, play it as often as you can against as many other
decks as you can. See what works and what doesn't, and then make changes. If
you keep working at it, you'll have a deck that will show everyone you're the
greatest Pokémon Master of all time!

                          Pokemon TCG Expert Rules
===============================================================================

In What Order Do You Do Your Attack?

The exact steps to go through when attacking are listed here. For most attacks,
it won't matter what order you do things in, but if you have to work your way
through a really complicated attack, follow these steps in order and you should
be fine.

Announce which attack your Active Pokémon is using. Make sure your Pokémon has
enough Energy cards attached to it to use the attack.
If necessary, make any choices the attack requires you to make. (For example,
Poliwhirl's Amnesia attack says "Choose 1 of the Defending Pokémon's attacks."
So you choose now.)

If necessary, do anything the attack requires you to do in order to use it.
(For example, discard Energy cards, as in Charmander's Ember attack, which
makes you discard one (R) Energy card in order to use it.)

If necessary, apply any effects that might alter or cancel the attack. (For
example, if your Pokémon was hit last turn by Sandshrew's Sand-attack, that
attack said that if you tried to attack with that Pokémon during your next
turn, you should flip a coin. If tails, your Pokémon's attack does nothing.)

If your Active Pokémon is Confused, check now to see if the attack fails.
Do whatever the attack says. Do any damage first, then do any other effects,
and finally, Knock Out any Pokémon that have damage greater than or equal to
their Hit Points.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How Do You Figure Out the Damage?

Usually the amount of damage an attack does won't depend on the order in which
you do things. But if you have to figure out an attack in which a lot of
different things might change the damage, follow these steps in order (skip any
steps that don't apply to that attack).

Start with the base damage. This is the number written to the right of the
attack, or, if that number has an x, -, +, or ? sign next to it, it's the
amount of damage the attack text tells you to do.

Apply any effects the Active Pokémon has that will affect the base damage dealt
(for example, Scyther's Swords Dance). Then if the base damage is 0 (or if the
attack doesn't do any damage at all), just stop figuring the damage. You're
done now. Otherwise, keep going.

Double the damage if the Defending Pokémon has a Weakness to the attacking
Pokémon's type.

Subtract 30 damage if the Defending Pokémon has Resistance to the attacking
Pokémon's type.

Figure out effects of Trainer cards attached to the attacking Pokémon.

Figure out effects of Trainer cards attached to the Defending Pokémon.

Apply any relevant effects resulting from the Defending Pokémon's last attack
(for example, Onix's Harden) or any relevant Pokémon Powers.

For each 10 damage the attack ends up doing, put one damage counter on the
Defending Pokémon. (If at this point the damage done turns out to be less than
0, don't do anything.)

Now that damage has been done, if the attack does anything other than damage,
do all of that.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How Do You Retreat Using Double Energy Cards?

Paying Retreat Costs can get confusing with Double Energy cards. Here's the way
it works: Discard Energy cards one at a time until you've paid the Retreat Cost
(or maybe more). Once you've paid the cost, you can't discard any more cards.

For example, suppose your Pokémon has a Retreat Cost of (2) and it has two (R)
Energy cards and a Double Colorless Energy card attached. You can pay the
Retreat Cost in several ways-by discarding DC, by discarding 2 (R), or by
discarding (R) first and then. You can't discard all 3 cards, though.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What Happens if a Card Tells You to Draw More Cards than You Have Left?

Sometimes a card will tell you to draw more cards than you have in your deck or
to search for cards that you don't have in your deck. If this happens, do as
much as you can (draw as many cards as you have left or get those cards that
are in your deck) and continue play as normal. Remember, you lose if you can't
draw a card at the beginning of your turn, not if you can't draw one because a
card told you to.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What Happens if Neither Player Gets a Basic Pokémon in His or Her First 7 Cards?

Sometimes neither you nor your opponent will get any Basic Pokémon in your
first hands of 7 cards. If this happens, both players shuffle and draw 7 new
cards. In this case, neither player gets to draw the extra 2 cards. Repeat this
process until at least one of the players has a Basic Pokémon card in his or
her hand of 7 cards. If the other player still doesn't have a Basic Pokémon
card in his or her hand, that player can shuffle and draw 7 new cards, but the
player who already has a Basic Pokémon can draw up to 2 extra cards as usual.
Continue this process until both players have a Basic Pokémon in their first
hand of 7 cards.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What Happens if Both Players Win at the Same Time?

You win if you take your last Prize or if your opponent can't replace his or
her Knocked Out Pokémon with one from his or her Bench. But it might happen
that both players "win" in one of these ways at the same time. If this happens,
play Sudden Death. But if you win in both ways and your opponent wins in only
one way, you win!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What's Sudden Death?

If Sudden Death occurs, play a new game of Pokémon, but have each player use
only 1 Prize instead of the usual 6. Except for the number of Prizes, treat the
Sudden Death game like a whole new game of Pokémon: Set everything up again,
including flipping a coin to see who goes first. The winner of this game is the
overall winner. It may happen that the Sudden Death game also ends in Sudden
Death; if that happens, just keep playing Sudden Death games until somebody
wins.

Glossary

Active Pokémon: Your Pokémon that's in front of all your other Pokémon. Only
the Active Pokémon can attack.

Attach: To take a card from your hand and put it on one of your Pokémon in play.

Attack: 1) When your Active Pokémon fights your opponent's Defending Pokémon.
2) The text written on each Pokémon that shows what it does when it attacks (a
Pokémon can have one or two attacks on it).

Basic Energy card: A Grass, Fire, Water, Lightning, Psychic, or Fighting Energy
card.

Basic Pokémon card: A card that you can play directly from your hand on your
turn to put a Pokémon into play. See Evolution card.

Bench: Your Pokémon that are in play but aren't actively fighting sit here.
They're ready to come out and fight if the Active Pokémon retreats or is
Knocked Out.

Damage: When one Pokémon attacks another, it will usually cause damage. If a
Pokémon has total damage greater than or equal to its Hit Points, it is Knocked
Out.

Defending Pokémon: Your opponent's Active Pokémon during your attack.

Discard pile: The pile of cards you've discarded. These cards are always
face-up. Anyone can look at these cards at any time.

Energy card: The cards that power your Pokémon and make them able to attack.
See Basic Energy card.

Evolution card: A card you can play on top of a Basic Pokémon card (or
sometimes on top of another Evolution card) to make it stronger.

Hit Points: A number every Pokémon has, telling you how much damage it can take
before it's Knocked Out.

In play: Your cards on the table are considered to be in play. Basic Pokémon,
Evolution cards, and Energy cards can't be used unless they are in play. (The
cards in your deck, your discard pile, and your Prizes are not considered to be
in play, but your Benched Pokémon are.)

Knocked Out: If a Pokémon has damage greater than or equal to its Hit Points,
it's Knocked Out. That Pokémon goes to the discard pile, along with any cards
attached to it. When one of your opponent's Pokémon is Knocked Out, you take
one of your Prizes.

Pokémon: The colorful creatures that fight for you in the Pokémon trading card
game. They are represented in the game by Basic Pokémon and Evolution cards.
Pokémon Power: The special abilities some Pokémon have. These are written in
the same place attacks are, but they always have the words "Pokémon Power" in
front of them so that you can tell they're not attacks.

Prizes: The 6 cards you put face-down at the start of the game. Every time one
of your opponent's Pokémon is Knocked Out, you take 1 of your Prizes into your
hand. When you take your last Prize, you win!

Resistance: If a Pokémon has Resistance, it takes 30 less damage whenever
attacked by Pokémon of a certain other type. Resistance is indicated in the
lower middle of the card.

Retreat: The act of taking your Active Pokémon and switching it with one of
your Benched Pokémon. To retreat, you must discard from the retreating Pokémon
Energy equal to the Retreat Cost of that Pokémon. This cost is written in the
lower right-hand corner of the card.

Sudden Death: Sometimes both players will win at the same time. In this case,
you play a shorter version of the Pokémon game called "Sudden Death" (using
only 1 Prize each instead of 6).

Trainer card: These are cards that you play during your turn by following the
instructions on the card and then discarding it.

Weakness: If a Pokémon has Weakness, it takes double damage when attacked by
Pokémon of a certain other type. Weakness is indicated in the lower left-hand
corner of the card.

===============================================================================

This (fairly gargantuan by my standards) section will simply list all
of the cards in the game. This cards, with the exception of a few promotional
and GB exclusive cards, all come from the Base, Jungle, or Fossil sets in the
real Pokemon TCG sets. All attacks, HP, Pokemon Powers, etc., were all copied
directly from the cards and should read exactly as the cards do.

I have also given my personal rating of the card as a whole, factoring in
its evolution and strategy within particular decks. It is under the
'My Rating' category, and it is out of 5 *'s, 5 being the best.

--------------

Ratings Guide

***** - A must have card. A solid card either for any deck, or because of
its ability to have an entire successful deck revolve around it.

**** - A really good card. Used often in decks, although possibly not
overused like some of the ***** cards.

*** - A decent card. A card that given the right situation and deck set
up, could possibly shine. Has the advantage of being a little unexpected
because of its lesser use than top tier cards.

** - A limited card. Very limited uses, best to stay away unless
apart of a evolutionary line or for a theme deck.

* - A bad card. Would not recommend using it unless for fun.

                     ***************************************
===============================================================================

Meta-game is essentially the game(s) outside of the actual game itself. This
can include the mental game when developing a deck: should you pick efficient,
more popular cards, or do with some surprise cards that aren't always as
consistent.

The basic definition: the strategic analysis of a single deck, or the most
commonly played decks in any given region of the country, in the hopes of
building a deck that will be more likely to beat decks of the original type
when played in a tournament environment.

Pretty much, this means in order to win, you need to take a close look at the
decks that people you're playing against are playing. Remember what types of
Pokémon, Trainers, Status Effect they are using, and build decks that take
advantages of their weaknesses. That's the long and the short of "the metagame."

Adjusting to the current metagame of popular decks can also lead to great
results. For example, if in your area, everyone is running a RainMaker, play a
lightning/grass heavy deck. Its all about adjusting to the larger span of what
competitive strategies are popular, and trying to find something to come up
with those strategies. The best deck example of this is probably the Potpourri,
so I will use it as an example here.

MORE ANALYSIS COMING SOON.

taking forever to amass the card collection required to do so.

                     ***************************************
===============================================================================

Standard Game Rules
-------------------

Q: When my opponent draws no basic Pokemon, why don't I get to draw 2 cards
like in the real card game?

A: This was one of the few rules from the actual card game that wasn't
included in the Gameboy TCG, use it to your advantage to run low basics in
your deck!

---

Q: Do you need to have 60 cards or is 60 just the maximum?

A: You are required to play with EXACTLY 60 cards

---

Q: Can you use any Pokemon powers from your hand?

A: The cards that have a Pokemon Power that is "played from your hand" means
that when you bring the card into play from your hand.  This does NOT mean
that you can use the Pokemon Power while the card is in your hand.

---

Q: When does Confusion end?

A: Flipping heads will allow that attack to successfully work, but will not
end that Pokemon's confusion.  Once confused, they stay so until they faint,
evolve, are benched, or are Full Healed.


In-Game Questions
-----------------

Q: Are there any cards missing from the GameBoy version.

A: Yes. The two missing cards seem to be Fossil Ditto, and Base Set
Electrode. They have seemingly been "semi-replaced" with GB exclusive
cards.

---

Q: How do I get multiple copies of the four Legendary cards?

A: After beating the game once and receiving your copy of one of each
legendary card, go back and challegene the masters again, and for every
win thereafter, you will receive one legendary card at random. However, 
after you have 2 copies of each of the cards, when you try to receive 
another one, the ledgendary cards 'speak to you' but this time they say,
'We have no more cards to give you'. (Thanks Simon Thunder)

==================
Cheap In-Game Tips
==================

-Whenever Dr. Mason e-mails you a booster pack, save your game before opening
the e-mail. Once opened, if you do not want the cards in the booster pack,
shut the game off immediately and start over. This time, the cards in the
booster will be different. Repeat until you find the cards you want.

-If you want to give all of your cards to the man in order to get your MP
Pikachu a faster way to do this instead of waiting for him to ask for one is
to do this: When he asks you for a card give it to him, write in the diary,
and shut off the gameboy. Turn it back on and talk to the same man. He will
ask for it immediatley. Repeat in order to get the MP Pikachu way faster!

-The game auto-saves in a battle... abuse it!

-First you must understand how the game saves. The game automatically saves
after each input command that you do. It does not save after your opponent
attacks, only after you input. Use this to your advantage. If you get a
result you don't like, just turn off the game, then turn it back on. Now you
can try something else.

-See all of your prizes
After you beat an opponent, select a prize. Once you see what it is do Tip 1.
When you turn it back on you will be back to just before the attack. Attack
again and select a different prize. Repeat this with all prizes and you can
select the one you want/need.

-Beat the coin flip
Coin flips in the game are NOT random. They are on some type of predetermined
routine that you can take advantage of. If you have a Pokemon that has a
damage attack and a coin flip attack (like Lapras) then always try the status
attack first. For example, if you have 2 Water energies on Lapras. You can do
a 20 pt Water Gun or a 10 Confuse Ray attack. Try the Confuse Ray attack. If
it's heads then you get the 10 pts damage and your opponent is confused. If
you get tails, simply turn off the game as soon as the coin shows tails and
start it again. Now do Water Gun. Don't bother with Confuse Ray because once
it's tails it will ALWAYS be tails. This can also be used with trainer cards.
Once you know what the coin flip will be you can decide if you want to use
cards like Gambler or Recycle.
