To be perfectly honest, it's been quite a while since I played the Pokemon Trading Card Game. 8.General physical appearance of book (Is the physical presentation of the text attractive?
I was incredibly into it when it first came out (my shining achievement being getting a holographic Charizard from a booster pack), but eventually my other hobbies -- especially my affinity for Magic: The Gathering -- pulled me away.
Is the paper in the copy or copies you examined holding up physically over time?): Cannot say for original book – but 1988 renewed edition has held up over time. Description of Binding (material and text on cover and spine): Dust Jacket has “'50 Word Vocabulary' as a sticker. The cover of the 1988 edition was the most worn, with the adhesive sticker spine peeling off.
From the small taste I've had of the open beta, which you can try out right now at the official Pokemon website, a surprising new addiction threatens to take hold of my bank account. It's absolutely free of charge to register and play, and you're even provided with three complete decks to play with if you don't want to spend money on booster packs. There are also achievements that can be unlocked, such as one for knocking out 1,000 Pokemon, one for confusing five monsters, and so on.

An optional tutorial quickly and clearly walks you through the basics, which it then builds upon to teach new players more advanced techniques and strategies.
The fact that TCG Online eases you into the game should open the door for people who love the Pokemon franchise but found branching out into the trading card game too daunting. And, as mentioned, if you have no need to brush up on the basics, you're perfectly free to skip the tutorial and jump right in. When challenging other players the game actually uses a variety of factors to match you up with someone of a similar experience level -- so newcomers don't have to worry about getting humiliated by a TCG expert when they're just learning the ropes. I was told there will even be cosplay costumes eventually, as well as event items to collect.
In addition to your three starter decks, players can also use the cards they purchase in all future booster packs and theme decks (beginning with Black and White -- Emerging Powers).
If you bought a theme deck, all the cards available in that deck will go straight into your collection. If you bought a booster pack, you'll be given a booster pack credit that lets you choose and open a digital booster pack of your choosing. And for those too lazy to type in a bunch of codes, you can also scan the QR marker that comes with them using your computer's camera.

Throw in an excellent card sorting and searching tool, as well as the ability to create and modify decks quickly and easily, and even the pickiest of card collectors should be pleased. Down the line players will be able to challenge specific friends, and even participate in tournaments. An impressively deep leaderboard system will also be launching sometime next month, tracking not just how you stack up against other players, but also ranking participants on things like how many prize cards they've taken. The time I've spent with it has me really excited to see what the future holds, and it's taking all of my will power to not run to the store and go on a booster pack bender.
Whether you're a fan of the game already, or are looking to get into TCGs, this site is the place to be.
