While I really wish we would go back to drawn fullart cards, 5ban's models look really good and the posing is getting more dynamic and interesting on the regular arts. PLANETA's been getting better recently but some of their cards have been... questionable...

One is the regular art and the other is the rarer full art version. Lots of cards have regular and full arts and the newer ones have rainbow rare versions too.
For example, this is a full art Ho-oh-GX.

Why not? The first time I played this game was in 1998 but I quit for Yugioh when it came out then found Magic, only to come back a few months ago. I think the new cards are great but they should really have full arts be drawn by real artists instead of all being 3D. I guess it's cheaper that way.
>>
>>33726084
Everything prior to BW is super compatible with the old cards.

>>33726105
Yeah, /ptcgog/ as a whole can't wait for 5ban to get the boot.
Though just giving anyone else a chance at super rates would be fine by me.
>>
>>33726105
I also stopped and changed over to yuhioh as I got into my teen years got into the DBZ cards aswell but lost things as I moved around. I always end up back at pokemon. I agree artwork done by hand is always nicer touch but like you say its cheaper to do it 3D.

Celesteela-GX – Metal – HP200
Basic Pokemon (Ultra Beast)
[M][C][C] Rocket Fall: 30+ damage. This attack does 30 more damage for each [C] in your opponent’s Active Pokemon’s Retreat Cost.
[M][C][C][C] Moon Press: 130 damage.
[M][C][C][C] Blaster GX: 180 damage. Turn each of your face-down cards face up. (Those cards stay face-up for the rest of the game.) (You can’t use more than 1 GX attack in a game.)
When your Pokemon-GX is Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.
Weakness: Lightning (x2)
Resistance: Fighting (-20)
Retreat: 4

Wow that's a shitty ass GX attack unless something other than prizes will use a face-down mechanic. Literally worse than Ho-oh's regular attack

I'm honestly shocked we still don't have Beast Ball, "Search your deck for an Ultra Beast and put it into your hand" yet.

It wouldn't be that great though, Ultra Ball is fine 90% of the time.
>>
>>33733652
Yeah, it used to be used in a few decks (not sure if it's still used in Expanded) and is very pretty.
A quick search suggests about $10-14 as the going rate, assuming it's in decent condition. You should probably sleeve your cards though.

Tapu koko promo #30 is 5 GRI packs. Tapu Koko promo #31 is 4 GRI packs. If you buy codes thats no more than 2$. You can offer 6 BUS and that will work occasionally. Those cards have pretty high demand, #30 in particular comes from an overpriced bundle.
>>
>>33731015
To be fair if your field blower is prized, this GX will let you access them. Float Stone turns retreat cost into 0 so it is important if you build around rocket fall attack

>>33733037
Most likely only through product. If you want shining legends pay an arm or a leg ingame, or buy codes

>>33733652
If its near mint 7$ max.

Just pulled this. Am I lucky? I'm a collector, so I usually only keep cards with actual pokemon on them, but I'm guessing this is something special due to the full art texture?

A Secret Rare Trainer, very rare by the games logic, somewhat costly as well. I'd keep it sleeved, you could always trade it if you don't like it.

Damn, would love to trade it for a secret rare of a Pokémon I actually care about, like Drampa. Still pretty exciting, though. Thanks!

it's worth much more than Drampa SR.

they will, but SHL GX cards will always be like $3-5 more than other sets because there are no booster box pull rates.

Zoroark is apparently Shaymin-tier in Japan so it'll probably rise once people realize it's playable in every deck.
>>
>>33737025
Zoroark GX is fucking amazing in night march. another discard outlet and an out vs trevenant.
>>
>>33737045
It's amazing in every deck. It beats Octillery by a longshot because it always draws and it can attack, plus having two out is 4 cards a turn. It's going to make Sudowoodo standard in every deck that doesn't lock abilities. In expanded it'll be tier 1 in its own deck with Dimension Valley and Sky Field.
>>
>>33737025
What's the chance I'd be able to flip a lele for several zoroarks and back
>>
>>33737384
If the packs aren't in the shop tomorrow really fucking high.
>>
>>33737384
Hard to say. Zoroark is the mvp in shining legends right now. Lele is the best in demand card at the moment. It all depends how many people trade their zoroark gx. My guess would be Zoroark GX being 20 packs day 1. Of course on public who knows what crazy shit you can get with just 1 zoroark gx due to desperation.
>>
>>33736975
I have a full art drampa gx i'll give you for it.

I'm not the guy who posted the stretcher, though I do have one.

And I was saying it's worth more than RR Drampa, much less FA.

the lunala deck is so good but it's getting boring

god I have so many coins from killing time on theme vs I could prob play standard
>>
>>33739786
Bump this cause I really want to know...
>>
>>33739786
The tin has the tapu bulu and a handfull of boosters. It wont be enough to build a complete deck.
If you're going to build your deck - you're gonna need way more boosters.
If getting energies are a problem you can get them at comic stores for 5-10 cents each.
Buy a bunch of packs then after spending a few hundred go online or to a comic store to buy the singles you really need but haven't pulled

Usually they're terrible. You need to cut down on the chaff pokemon and increase trainers to ensure consistency.

Night march benefits from marshadow as do various toolbox decks so rainbow energy is good too.

But without knowing the existing decklist (you can export it in the PTCGO game) we can't really offer much specific advice.
>>
>>33740796
he could literally sell it and buy three of the card you're offering him for it. Stretcher is a ~$20 card and Drampa FA is like $5-6, SR is only $10. You're communicating over the internet, this isn't a schoolyard/local market, if he's going to ship it he might as well get market value for it.

>>33733246
Those tin decks are universally shit, I mean just fucking look at the cards in it and ask yourself if this looks like the kind of deck the pastebin/faq recommends.
>>
>>33741565
Look man. I know you just want my Drampa, and once this guy rejects my offer, you're gonna offer me the trade.
Well to that, i say no thank you sir
>>
so i just started playing this and bought the alola ninetales theme deck, i think it's pretty good and when i completed the gold trainer challengers first pack i open was a very shiny tapu lele card. is that good or is it something they do for the first pack you open

>>33741920

how do i speed up the battles they are slow as fuck and took me 2 hours at maximum efficiency just to complete gold i dont want to have to do the same for plat onward

Use it for all your decks and that means if you ever get a tradeable one you can trade it

>>33741941
Tapu-lele gx? If so congratulations! You won the lottery of beginners.
Theme decks are slow, you have to bear it.
Once you start to win tournaments you can get packs and trade those packs for cards you need for faster standard and expaded decks.

You just got obscenely lucky. Then again, I have opened two Leles online, one IRL, and 2 Shaymins online as well back when that was the big chase card.

Zoroark GX is in shining legends and some decks might use it instead of Octillery but with the box with Zoroark GX in it probably won't reach that high of a price much like Volcanion and the tin Volcanions keeping the price in check.

Especially since it's performance in Japan, though take it with a pinch of salt since Japan is pretty much currently expanded for standard and the deck it was mainly used in was a Raichu skyfield deck.

Tapu Lele
Full Art Tapu Lele
Hyper Rare Tapu Lele

>>33744266
Tapu Lele GX goes of pretty much every deck, same with Ultra Ball, Prof. Sycamor and N but those are cheap.
Other than that depends on what deck you want to build, if you want to start with a budget deck I'v been playing with a Golduck/Starmie deck recently and doing pretty good.
>>
>>33744266
you can pick up like 4-5: lapras gx OR ninetales gx OR espeon GX OR drampa gx etc of the lowest rarity with 1 shining legends. you can build most decks if you act now. without lele you can still win.

Ninetales is the best meta deck I can recommend you that doesn't cost all too much, you could also build Espeon/Garb but fuck Garb. You definitely want at least 2 Tapu Lele GX. Beyond that it's really up to whatever you want to build.

Kinda bummed by Shining Legends. Really, actually., I bought the Elite Booster set only to find out the whole set consists of just 78 cards. What a massive disappointment. I got so many doubles.

Don't think anyone can relate to this, but may as well ask. How do I get over fear of failure and just play? I started playing the TCGO about 2 months ago (nothing amazing, not like I have a super crazy gardevoir deck or anything) and I uploaded my IRL code cards, but I mostly just play versus test deck. I haven't played a single match versus a person because I feel really bad if I lose, which will happen. Idk, I say this is a fun card game but then I think about playing against someone real and instantly it becomes not fun in my head

>>33747258
Holy shit. I remember you. We told you to get over yourself. Look, I lose, a lot. Sometimes I open Tapu lele or Shaymin vs night march and just lose because those are free prizes. Some days I just dont know how to play around specific techs like recently sylveon gx plea deal which I still play into. Nobody wins 100%. Try playing versus theme mode. The worst thing that will happen is some scrublet is going to say "well played" or spam emotes while they open turn 5 lunala. The entirety of life is a competition. Resources are limited and strained, you compete for them every day. This game is also a competition, except the stakes are not life or death. just a mild dopamine rush from a childrens card game battle.Its not serious. So what if you lose? Chances are with new player elo you will get a 20 win streak. Or not. Nobody can change you or live your life. That is your prerogative. Some of these people are so bad, they are even worse than the AI bots. Others times I see a cool deck and build it myself. You live and learn, defeat and failure is apart of growth. you can remain in stasis all you want, but nothing we say can change your determination. you manifest that yourself, anon.

>>33747278
Zoroark will drop in a week or 2. It is the chase card but its not tapu lele. Not to mention the collection box it comes in guarantees more copies into the game in a month or 2. Im getting crazy value with shining legends. Zoroark is hard to trade for though. And when I get one I just sell it because of the hype. It doesnt hurt to put up offers, you might get lucky.

I actually know how you feel, I was nervous to use my standard decks at first because I thought they weren't up to par. More recently, I spent almost 40 packs putting together a Turbo Darkrai deck for expanded only for it to flub and lose my first match with it to a pile of nonsense. Losing happens. Most of my decks only have a 50%+ winrate with my best being 70%. I still lose 30% of the time even with my best deck. I went on a 4 day streak of terrible starts and turn 2 donks but I still managed to get some wins out of it. You just have to accept that it happens, figure out why you lost, and do better next time.
>>33747307
Chill the fuck out tough guy, people have the right to be anxious. I felt the same way at first, though not as bad.
>>
>>33747314
My bad. There have been others who had the same new player jitters. One guy would ask the same question everyday and we just told him to get over himself and just play. Im guessing he never did because he disappeared. I think he didnt play for like 3 months or so thats why I figured you were him and just came back. Either way that doesnt change my sentiment.
Start with theme decks, very basic format and no crazy combos that will make you shit bricks. Expanded is the crazy format where you will see turn 2 180+ damage and even a Lysandre Supporter to snipe your bench, so I would advise not playing it since it can be stressful for beginners. Either way it starts with you. Worst thing that happens is your cortisol mildly rises because of some misplay or misclick you make.

The fact that I'm personally still starting out makes the concept of losing much easier, since I don't have many EXes to throw around. That said, another good thing I've found with tcgo is that I rarely feel that I lost due to hax. Sure, some times I really needed that supporter card, but if that situation frequently happens, then maybe the fault lies with my deck instead of my luck and thus I set out to improve it. I sometimes also have angry reactions whenever my opponent fucks up my strategy, but if I had been in their position, I'd felt super content about having a counterplay or securing a win, so I need to acknowledge good decks and maybe even copy some in the future.

But yeah, plenty of people like us are starting out, so you're in good company. Also remember that daily/special challenges can be completed without actually winning, same goes for versus rewards since that bar will continue to rise as long as you get in some kills. Defeat is unavoidable, so just embrace it.

That's good to hear, Marshadow is my favorite legendary since Jirachi.

Is his deck meta? It seems like his effect would mostly be janky
>>
>>33747494
exeggcute propagate is popular in legacy due to junk arm. rebirth Ho Oh and darkrai gx are discard pile effects, but more deck specific. Venting Anger Gyarados does 50 for each magikarp in discard. Sparkling ripples milotic lets you get any 1 card in your discard. Puzzle of time as well. Junk Hunt sableye is notorious for discard toolboxing, life dew and puzzle of time with garbotoxin destroy most decks, just the games are very long to play out.
Marshadow relies on its ability. In expanded 1 hex maniac shuts it down. In standard only garbotoxin is around but you can field blower it. Marshadow having psychic weakness hurts it, garbodor trashalanche is everywhere. Then you have things like espeon gx.

I know what you mean, any time I start to actually get high-ranking on any online game I stop enjoying it because I'm more scared of losing than I am enjoying winning.

I guess just decide that you're playing for fun and play in a way that reflects that, to relieve pressure? In VG online I'll sometimes just play online with a gimmick team because even though it'll lower my Elo ranking, I feel less pressure because it feels like I wasn't really trying.

Any deck with devolution spray, and scoop ups not used for healing.

Salazzle, PorygonZ, Lucario, Raichu, Bewear, Oricorio, Hawlucha, Foongus, ShayminEX (returns itself), M-AlakazamEX, LycanrocGX, and KokoGX all come to mind. The best part is you can do it to your LeleGX's too for free supporter searching.
Of note, they're always play from hand effects, so evo soda, wally, nest ball, and brigette don't work.

As for sacrificing mon for power, Buzzap Electrode is a fun one. Seen it used with KokoGX and A-Golem/Fliptini.

A theme deck for Trainer Challenges and Theme VS/Events. If you already have a decent theme deck for that, then you use them to buy Pika Packs for flipping. Yes, those avatar box items. You can trade them for cheap rares that you can then sell for a pack (sometimes 2+ for a pack depending on the rare) and start building up some trading material, which you can then turn into a deck of your choice
>>33753670
>31 BUS
>10 SHL
You might be able to get one Lele for all of the BUS packs or maybe for the 10 SHL packs, but most of the rest you're better off trying to buy low-end EX/GX cards with that you can then sell for GRI packs.
>>33751063
You could also benefit from this advice. The GX cards can all fetch at least a pack, but Rainbow Marshadow is your best card in there and it's not even close to the value of Lele or Zoroark. Those rares/reverse holos might as well be worthless except for Ninetales, Guzma, and Kiawe. Wicke and Wally are worth maybe a couple packs each. If you really want those cards you're going to have to sell off as much of that as you can for packs and get the them the hard way: build up the rest of their value in packs through flipping or events.

I've been getting into the TCGO, it's pretty fun. My main gripe is the slightly cumbersome menus and disgusting player avatars, but the game itself is good.
I got a Ninetales BREAK early on so I've been using that with Blacksmiths and some other stuff in expanded (since I don't have a standard-legal ninetales yet), which has been working pretty good when I don't play like an idiot.

Everyone typically plays standard right? I've been spending my coins on standard-legal booster packs so I can switch over eventually.

Lele goes for 26 GRIish. You can get as low as 20 if you're lucky. BUS are about 1 GRI so you're good there.
The SHL can probably get you another one.
The remainder, grab small stuff, lump them together to get something bigger, repeat until you've got your third Lele and never have to deal with it again until rotation.
>>
TCGOfag here,
regarding Zoroark GX, do you guys think it will become an integral part of every deck, like Lele is in the current standard meta? Or will it have some meme decks and thats it?
I have one Zoroark GX right now, and I wanna know if I should try get another one or two.
I see the regular art currently being offered for a minimum of 10 SHL packs in public trades, which seems a bit overpriced in my opinion (these packs are fucking hard to get for a tcgo player..)
what do you guy think about this card?

oh right, this is the version where that guy removed what speed trainers were for no reason, as well as mangled my talk about previous decks that used no EXs.

What its calling Speed trainers are things that draw more cards, let you search for cards you need, or that let you return things from the graveyard so you don't have to search or draw for them.

Also, "KO's any basic in standard" won't be true once guzzlord comes out. Sad panda.

Wish Nihilego-GX would come out already. Can't decide if I should start grabbing Metagross-GX or Lunala-GX for more efficient energy usage. Toxicroak can crank out 190 damage for three energy + Choice Band + the added bonus of the really bulky Pokemon being left poisoned and confused. Zoroark-GX for the draw support and the DCE attack being really great value when it's needed.

I'm already running a Muk/Darkrai/Zoroark/Salazzle that that does pretty well, but I want to make this one different.

If I go Metagross then I can drop energy into the discard with Zoroark for free draws and then put them on my active Pokemon with Metagross, but Lunala would let me have more flexibility.

The only big downside with this deck is that nihilego will also leave my Toxicroak/active confused, but if I deck four malasadas then it shouldn't be an issue getting them when I need them with all the draw support and shit like Skyla.

Altar of the Moone also makes status effects on my active Pokemon a non issue since most of them will be able to get free retreats.

Also, Nihilego's GX attack seems hilariously upsetting.

imgur I explained the other kind of trainer card, fixed a broken sentence in the section about EXs, updated the "cards you probably need" section to include stretcher, choice band, and field blower, and centered and scooted things to make it more aesthetically pleasing.

they have pretty macaw dinosaurs now. still not as pretty as pokemon's artwork though, excluding 5ban's eyesores.

[.] Exeggutor Paradise: For each Exeggcute on your Bench, search your deck for an Alolan Exeggutor or Alolan Exeggutor-GX and put it onto that Exeggcute. (This counts as evolving that Pokemon.) Then, shuffle your deck.

Venusaur+max elixir?
>>
>>33758833
I guess, if you don't rely on fliptini because you want to run this on standard you'll want at least 3 actual energies (so 6 coin flips with Venusaur) to get at least 160 damage every time.

I like that it has a variant of the classic Eggsplosion move from Jungle

Havent bought pokemon cards in 15 years. Picked up a shining legends pin collectors box. Are these any good?

Entei is rare but not particularly good
Raikou is good but not particularly rare
Shaymin and Shaymin are shit

What's the happs on Venusaur?
Are people pawning them off for easy packs or is it really that impactful on the meta?

Is DDE getting reprinted?
>>
>>33760554
No news on any kind of reprint right now.
Even still, if DDE did get reprinted, it would up the cost of Noivern-GX over Kommo-O, I would imagine.
>>
>>33760574
Both of them were shit even with DDE.

>>33760582
Obviously, but it would make way more sense for all those memedreamers out there.

Are there any physical products worth buying for PTCGO? Besides packs obviously.
>>
>>33757460
by posting that you just proved yourself wrong
>>
>>33758861
Fliptini is standard.

That said, it's A-Golem's attack, but 1 stage lower, on a mon with a bench-setting attack. It's not bad. Kinda wish anything ever was weak to dragon, or that they were at least not weak to fairy, or that if they just HAD to be both of those not require two kinds of energy (Drampa and both exeggcutor look promising on that front) or generally have support that makes all those downsides worth it.
What is PTCi's punchingbag stepchild and why is it dragontype?

What's the best and safest way to trade physical cards?
>>
So is this just the default trainer avatar? I keep seeing this fucking thing over and over.
>>
>>33761302
it was the default for me before I changed
>>
>>33761184
What even was their plan? They made Dragon back in BW, so it's not like they only exist to be weak to fairy.
But other than Blend/DDE, and I guess HydreigonEX I see absolutely no support, while just as much additional hate.

What exactly do the expect us to be *doing* with dragon?
>>
>>33761024
What do you mean "physical products for TCGO"?
If you're just going to be using the cards online and don't care about collecting IRL, just buy code cards. They're ten times cheaper than the packs.
>>
>>33755210
I havent received this, wtf?
>>
>>33761803
I mean things like the collector's tins or legendary packs that you can find in the store.

Hey guys, what comes with the Code Card on the Shining Legends Elite Trainer Box? Is it the sleeves and a coin or something, or does it include packs?
>>
>>33762334
Pretty sure you get the Ho-oh sleeves and maybe a box? The pack codes come in the packs.
>>
Just spent £50 of my real life money on a Shining Legends ETB and only got a Raichu GX.
It better gain some popularity, I only bought the box because most of the shining cards are just easy money on eBay.
>>
>>33753178
Night Striker has 1 Zoroark Stand in, which will sweep lunala easy. 1 Noivern lets you shuffle your hand and draw an equal amount to the opponent's hand. However imagine these cards being prized? Hidden Moon has 2 Lunala and 2 bewear, not to mention rescue stretcher. There is no counter to hidden moon. It is the best deck. Its best hand best all other decks best hand in theme. Sure you can draw bad but thats the nature of theme decks.
>>33755594
It wont be lele gx because it will get a collection box promo that gives 1 zoroark gx guaranteed. Right now is just hype. it is a good card but not lele good.Sell immediately and then buy it back in 2 weeks once it drops.
>>33757082
Night March is the best budget expanded deck, if you skip computer search.

What are pull rates in Sun/Moon? I just placed an order for box and elite box.
>>
>>33763565
Almost all boxes will be 4 URs, 1 full art, 1 HR or SR.
>>
>>33763074
Then play decks that like to go second.
>>
>>33763655
Thanks. Will probably post results in about two days!
>>
>>33763829
>>33746628
Eliteboxes are true gambles. Some people can pull 2 secret rares, but many people pull absolutely no URs, no SRs nothing just rares that nobody wants and that is very common.

I've been using a deck centered around 3 of these bad boys that relies on moving energy around using Blacksmiths, Kiawes and Team Magma's Camerupt.

I was wondering, is there any similar method of energy circulation for an electric deck? I want to try something similar out using XY Breakthrough Raikou and Circle Circuit Raichu.

not to shit on Expanded but no one would be willingly playing it unless it got you points.

>>33761262

at a league/card shop. when in doubt about value just go to tcgplayer.
>>
>>33760536

Jungle Totem Venusaur is an uncommon brah.
>>
What set has the best expected value right now?
>>
>>33765999
Guardians will retain value the best over time. Burning Shadows is still overvalued and will be until they print more anti-garde cards. Those packs will retain some value though due to FA Guzma and some of the SRs.

SHL will always be inflated due to the no-shop factor but it's not that good of a set, Zoroark is the main chase card in that set but it's full of dogshit GX cards like Entei and Mewtwo.
>>
>>33766670
And I forgot to add Zoroark is getting a box which will depress its price.
