-------------------------   5 X 1 TRADE   -----------------------------------

Another feature of Black Box is to trade 5 copies of the same card
for another single card.
Usually for common pokemon cards, you just have an evolution card for the
same pokemon.
I've not made yet a list of all 5x1 combinations, Here are some examples.
If anyone wants to help me to make a complete list, i will appreciate and
update soon!
Thanks to James H. for the contribute!

I would like to special thank the guys who made the translation patch
for this awesome game and thank all the people out there working on
game translations.
You are giving us the pleasure to play a lot of "hidden gems", giving a
second life to our old consoles and giving magical moments of retrogaming
to "old" gamers like me.
I LOVE YOU ALL!!!
