    Default Old School Pokemon TCG

    Does anyone else out there still play the TCG?

    I recently stumbled upon a couple of my old decks. Can't find all my other cards, which is really disappointing. I hope I didn't give them away, that sounds like something I would do.

    Anyway, thinking of buying some of the new D/P cards.

    These are the two old decks I found:

    Plant/Fire Deck

    14 Trainers
    21 Energy
    25 Pokemon

    9 plant
    11 fire
    6 Normal

    14 Trainers
    1 Pokemon Trader
    1 Gust of Wind
    2 Bills
    1 Full Heal
    1 Switch
    1 Impostor Oak's Revenge
    1 Poke Ball
    3 potions
    3 energy removals

    10 Fire Pokemon
    2 Charmander
    1 Charmeleon
    1 Ponyta
    1 Brock's Vulpix
    1 Blainde's Vulpix
    2 Magmar
    1 Blaine's Moltres
    1 Entei (promo)

    10 Plant Pokemon
    3 Ekans
    1 Dark Arbok
    1 Koga's Grimer
    1 Exeggcute
    2 Tangela
    1 Rocket's Scyther


    6 Normal Pokemon
    Jigglypuff (jungle)
    2 Brock's Lickitung
    2 Kangaskhan (jungle)
    1 Spearow


    Plant/Psychic deck

    24 Energy
    11 Trainers
    25 Pokemon


    12 psychic energy 12 plant energy

    11 Trainers
    1 Full Heal Energy
    4 potions
    1 Super potion
    1 The Boss's Way
    1 Misty's Duel
    2 Gust of Winds
    1 Switch

    10 Plant Pokemon
    2 Paras
    1 Parasect
    2 Exeggcute
    1 Rocket's Scyther
    3 Ekans
    1 Dark Arbok

    10 Psychic Pokemon
    1 Sabrina's Abra
    4 Rocket Abra
    1 Dark Kadabra
    2 Kadabra
    1 Sabrina's Gastly
    1 Sabrina's Mr. Mime


    5 Normal
    1 Kangaskhan (jungle)
    2 Spearow
    1 Fearow
    1 Farfetch'd


    Anyway, I'm open for criticism. What do you think of the low energy? I remember doing pretty well with the fire deck. Obviously it depends on the luck of the draw.

    Basically I can only switch between these two decks, I have about 20 more cards but I can't find the others... I'm a sad panda about that too

    I can't find my Charizard card! If I did anything stupid like give it away I'm going to be pissed.

    Think I may head to Uber Geek Gear (a shop) later and pick up a sapphire deck just to get a treecko card. (even if it sucks, that is just an uber cute pokemon and I really need to get at least one gardevoir) I'll probably pick up a couple booster packs too.

    I don't really want to get too many more because I am really becoming a minimalist. All the wanton materialism in America just doesn't do it for me any more. Go fig. *shrug*

    Fuck, I didn't know there were people in the world who had any idea how to play by the real rules.

    Me and my brother when we played always just made shit up and played that way

    I tried reading that damn book so many times. God, it's a children's card game, and the reading level of the rulebook is like college level

    Hopefully they dumbed down the new school version so there's some playable version

    I was thinking the exact same thing! Never played it by the actual rules. I just messed around with them with my older borther. Besides, I was only about six, seven or so. Didn't really get it. I think those little blue and green gem rock things are lying around here somewhere [what're they supposed to do again?].

    Well, we always played by the rules because I would totally abuse the make it up as I go system. And I cheat. I cheated anyway, actually. As soon as I see a way to cheat I can't help myself. I stack the deck, I do whatever I can to cheat at a child's card game. I think basically this indicates that I am a bad person.

    Anyway, got a new deck.


    Fire/Psychic Deck

    10 trainer
    8 psychic energy
    15 fire energy

    19 Fire Type Pokemon
    6 Psychic Type Pokemon
    2 Normal Type Pokemon

    Normal Type Pokemon
    1 Brock's Lickitung
    1 Kankaskhan


    Fire Type Pokemon
    1 Entei (promo)
    1 Blaine's Moltres
    1 Magby
    2 Magmar
    2 Numel
    1 Camerupt
    3 Torchic
    2 Combusken
    1 Blasiken
    1 Ponyta
    1 Rapidash
    1 Blaine's Vulpix (can regular ninetails evolve from this card?)
    1 Brock's Vulpix (can regular ninetails evolve from this card?)

    Psychic Type Pokemon
    2 Abra
    2 Kadabra

    Yeah, I was like 10 and I didn't even get it, Ha ha ha ha

    If I remember correctly, those are like damage counters so you wouldn't lose track of how much HP one of your Pokemon had or something

    Yeah right, as if I used those at all

    man, I can see the fun in cheating, but I can't see anything at all in just winging it. I used to play hardcore monopoly and make up new arbitrary rules.

    Playing it on the Gameboy is much easier in my opinion. 'Cept without the cheating part.

    Yeah sometimes the rules get into the way too much. It's like c'mon, it's only a childrens card game. Why use rules when you can just cheat?
