    First point of order - remove as many Pokemon as possible from my deck that depend on coin flips for their attacks to do anything. I'd forgotten how many cards depended on that back in the day.

    Unless you're playing the Game Boy game, in which case those are pretty easy to manipulate.

    Female tails don't look like that either.

    I don't know what the significance is, but there are no Pikachus with black on the end of their tails.

    The notch that makes the tail look like a heart shape is common to all female pikachu, even if the color is different

    Oh I didn't notice the tail. That black heart-shaped spot could be a birthmark, which means it would be one specific Pikachu you dress up.

    I know, I just feel like if it didn't mean something they would have kept it yellow.

    please stop being so much worse than the other branches of the company just once and put the TCG game on our virtual console as well.

    I was browsing recent sets looking for cool card art (my favorites will always be the little clay Dittos that were disguised as Pikachu and the Kanto starters, w/ respective typing)

    Then I found this fucker

    21-qwilfish.jpg

    This would've WRECKED in the classic Haymaker. But nowadays like it's been said it's all EX this and that. I don't even know why people bother collecting the other cards, just make EX versions of everything. Also Dragon typing got the shit end of the stick; it's not necessarily an overly powerful type, there's plenty of pre-evo stages and such but to make each and every Dragon type need two energy? That's bull. But Fairy types don't have that limitation. Who at (whoever makes these decisions) hates dragons so much?

    E: Please please please Gamefreak give Quilfish a Mega-evolution that's basically a naval mine. Please.

    One more thing, never having used them myself but I think the Pokemon Lv. X cards were the best of both worlds; you still required evolution, they fit into an evolutionary state while also requiring you to sacrifice deck space for power, and they gave you a significant boost without being ridiculous. Plus using the Lv. X for Megas would've been perfect. Instead we migrated to Prime cards (which are ugly), and kept the lazy art style and brought back EX.

    This is how fundamentally flawed the game feels; I can't play a deck, if I wanted to, evolving a Squirtle into a Wartortle, or bypassing it into a Blastoise with Breeder (because that card was awesome), and then allow it to Mega evolve in game. I can't. There's absolutely no need for me to even have Squirtle anywhere near a Mega Blastoise deck. Evolution no longer plays into the TCG.

    Dragons seem like they were introduced to encourage dual-type decks, they tend to be pretty powerful too. Though that doesn't mean Fairy should arbitrarily have the same restrictions.

    It's really bugging me that that card has weakness to Grass type, considering Qwilfish is neutral to Grass and resistant to Bug, but weak against Electric, which a lot of Water cards have as a weakness anyway.

    I'm assuming the ability capsule wouldn't help with this.

    With some difficulty it looks like; it's not available in Friend Safaris so you'd have to find one that's been transferred up from B/W. Assuming the hidden ability was ever released on the Dreamworld of course, which I'm honestly not sure about.


    TCG cards tend to just have weakness based on their colour rather than the actual pokemons typing, so you'll get things like Joltik being weak to ground and Tropius weak to Lightning which aren't quite true to the games. But then I'm not a big fan of the elemental weakness in the TCG anyway seen as it just generally puts one deck at an advantage based solely on its colour, but whatever.

    Also speaking of card art I dug one of these up on the online client (spoilered for ludicrous image size):
    430px-ReshiramLegendaryTreasuresRC22.jpg

    So, I guess theres a Reshiram printed surrounded by cherry blossoms, for some reason.

    The inaccurate weaknesses was one of the main reasons I didn't get into the TCG in middle school and just never picked it up.

    Plus being able to stack status effects other than condusion + x.

    I could breed you one. By which I mean, I have an HA Torterra I could put out to stud.

    FYI all the Gen IV starters are legally available (they were released with purchase of... I want to say BW2... from Wal-mart for a while). After the Bank opened, intrepid Redditors over at Pokemon Giveaway did a good job of circulating them.

    @OmnipotentBagel‌, that would be awesome.

    I just need the ability, I can take care of the rest of the breeding from there.

    I have that Resharim! It is pretty amusing. And 99.9% of Pokemon cards are mono-typed so concessions are made for weaknesses.

    @Dys Looks like I've got some breeding spillover saved in the Bank so I withdrew one and it's good to go. I'll probably be on most of the evening so hit me up if you see me.

    Yeah probably won't still be up by then, but I should be around tomorrow evening. Man, GameFreak really needs to create some sort of offline "Pokemon gift" function so you can just send folks stuff whenever.
