Pokemon Trading Card Game-- the game of "Pocket Monsters" has come back with a vengance!
In this game you need to create and evolve your own pet mosters to fight your opponent. Each pokemon thay you defeat wins you a prize. When you have won all your prizes, then you win!
The latest series of pokemon cards are based around the pokemon-e card system where the cards have a barcode on them so that you can use the pokemon-e card reader to bring that monster into the cartridge games for the gameboy advance!
There are multiple types of shiney pokemon cards available. Any card shown as a "foil" will be a shiney. Cards marked as (holo) in the description are usually pokemon cards that exist in both a holo and foil version!
To make it worse, most recent sets will have non-holo rare versions of the same holo pokemon, so the same card can be a holo, a foil holo, a rare or a foil rare! We've tried to make the naming as clear as possible.
More and more sets of Pokemon Trading Card Game are appearing. Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire has been one of the most popular recent one, but Pokemon Deoxys has been very well received by the fans.
