Pokemon TCG Thread quote:

So my son is in grade 2 and I was luckily able to avoid the entire Pokemon Go insanity last summer, but he recently started getting Pokemon cards from friends as gifts or in gift bags from birthday parties.

He asked me if I knew how to play the game and I didn't but was willing to learn. Turns out it is a pretty good game and has helped him with his reading and math skills along with other things like learning strategies and the effects of actions and consequences.

We attended the Sun and Moon pre-release this weekend at our local card shop and had a great time building decks and playing against others. We even pulled a hyper-rare Umbreon GX card.

It was also nice to see a bunch of smaller kids with their parents (who were also playing) there. It wasn't just a big smelly nerd fest (although they were represented to a degree).

Anyone else on Beyond playing/collecting?

Are the rare cards still worth $100+ like back in the day? I collected and played pokemon when they first came out while I was in elementary. I recently moved and found my collection...I have the first 4 sets complete with various 1st editions mixed in as well as a bunch of rare cards from sets 4 and 5. Also mixed in were yugioh and digimon cards...nastolgia was great flipping through them.

I collected a few of the recent sets - Breakthrough, Generations, Evolutions but have no desire to get any of the Sun & Moon sets.

I don't play though.

Is pokemon still just a basic version of Magic? I played magic as a kid and never got into pokemon as it came out while i already played magic (in like grade 5-6).

I nerded our and attended a magic draft tournament a few months back and it was fun (and dirt cheap... comparing to concerts or nights at the bar etc.) There were a few father son duos there.

Either way playing a CCG with your kid sounds like a good time!

Just download the iPad/PC app. It will walk you through the basic mechanics of the game.

I have gotten into it, and so have my 2 girls.

I love how it is helping them with her reading skills, math skills, planning, critical thinking and all that, and it brings us all together, even Baygirl is into it.

I have a TON of extra cards if anyone wants some to flesh out their decks for their kids and such.

I refuse to buy friends' kids video games, but I'll get them Pokemon guides, comics, and cards any day of the week since it encourages them to read and interact with others more. Never got into it myself though.

if you have stuff from one set (evo/generations etc) does that mean you can only play with folks who have that same set?

My nephews are into it. They taught me how to play, though I'm not totally certain we're playing by the full set of rules.

Also, the oldest is cheating sonofabitch.

To the best of my knowledge, you can mix and match sets that are in the current rotation. There are some "banned" cards that were considered to be way over powered, or could not be countered in some fashion.

Older cards that are not in the current rotation, can not be played in all instances.

The current rotation (Standard Format) for 2017 is:
XY—Primal Clash
Double Crisis
XY—Roaring Skies
XY—Ancient Origins
XY—BREAKthrough
XY—BREAKpoint
Generations
XY—Fates Collide
XY—Steam Siege
McDonald's Collection 2015
XY Trainer Kit—Latias and Latios
XY Trainer Kit—Pikachu Libre and Suicune
Black Star Promo Cards: XY36 and higher

The expanded format includes the following as well:
Black & White
Black & White—Emerging Powers
Black & White—Noble Victories
Black & White—Next Destinies
Black & White—Dark Explorers
Dragon Vault
Black & White—Dragons Exalted
Black & White—Boundaries Crossed
Black & White—Plasma Storm
Black & White—Plasma Freeze
Black & White—Plasma Blast
Black & White—Legendary Treasures
Black & White Trainer Kit
XY—Kalos Starter Set
XY
XY—Flashfire
XY—Furious Fists
XY—Phantom Forces
XY—Primal Clash
Double Crisis
XY—Roaring Skies
XY—Ancient Origins
XY—BREAKthrough
XY—BREAKpoint
Generations
XY—Fates Collide
XY—Steam Siege
McDonald's Collection 2011
McDonald's Collection 2012
McDonald's Collection 2013
McDonald's Collection 2014
McDonald's Collection 2015
XY Trainer Kit
XY Trainer Kit—Bisharp and Wigglytuff
XY Trainer Kit—Latias and Latios
XY Trainer Kit—Pikachu Libre and Suicune
Black Star Promo Cards: BW01 and higher, XY01 and higher.

So depends on what you are doing. But, if you are just playing for fun, use any cards you like.



I also registered myself the kids for a sun and moon pre-release party on Saturday.

And Extraslow, if you want some more cards, Let me know, I have so many extras...
