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.


It depends on the cards. Most decks are going to be running almost nothing but Pokemon EX cards, which can cost anywhere from like $20 to $50 (if they're full art).

Like, for an example, Yveltal and Xerneas decks are really popular now. Unless you get lucky in booster packs, expect to buy maybe four tins and pay $20 for each card. That's around $80 for just four cards.

And yes, the power creep is disgusting.

Oh wow. Did not know it cost so much.

I'm just gonna buy the Skrelp and Dragalge cards by themselves. Is there a place I can get them for relatively cheap? I know Skrelp is a common card and Dragalge is uncommon, so they can't be that much right?

And I can't believe they made separate types for Fairy and Dragon but left Poison in the dust.

Poison types with the Leaf or Eye symbol just do not make sense. I can see why Psychics and Ghosts are paired together or even how Fighting, Ground, and Rock types fit together but Poison definitely needs its own separate symbol.

The card game has enough problems as it is. I don't even know if they could successfully add more types.

As for where to buy cards, I've used Troll and Toad a few times and they've been really good. You can probably get both cards for under a dollar (shipping not included).

I play Pokemon TCG Online. You don't have to spend money to get new cards (but you can). It's not too bad- a little tedious, but the online matches fix the problem that I always had playing the physical game of not having anyone to play with.

I used to collect them when I was a little kid but I don't buy them anymore.

Used to buy the cards (all non-legit. Legit ones are nearly non-existent here) and used them to play go-fish. But not anymore. Still play ptcgo though, and it is getting really boring. I got trolled by packs too many times to count.

I'll check there, thanks!
