    Default First Ever Pokemon Card

    Just a place discuss the first card/pack you ever got. Which cards you would have liked to tade for when you were a kid. Cards you've never owned and wish you did.

    Like mine was this little guy right here.
    not even out of the original booster deck either.
    my friend richard gave it to me. traded it for a Voltorb the same day.
    Catchin em all since 96.

    The first Pokemon card I ever got was Weedle, I'd of liked of to trade for a Dark Charizard. I wish I had owned Dark Charizard.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think my first Pokemon card was either a Diglett card or Charmeleon card from the first TCG expansion set that I found.

    I had the original starter set, so my first was, uh, whatever was in that. So, kinda hard to nail down an exact first.

    My first card was a ratatta. My friend gave it to me, and I kept it around for a while. Boy did I treasure it, and boy did it get wrinkled...a lot.
    I don't know where my old card collection is. Man it was HUGE!
    I don't really collect the cards anymore. I have a few of the newer ones in my room somewhere.
    I kind of want to get some more cards now so..lol. Maybe this weekend.
    As for cards I wish I owned...Charizard I guess. :P
    Well I finally bought Alpha Sapphire and I chose Treecko.

    I don't battle competitively. Please respect that. I play for the thrill of the adventure.

    I still have my first original card set in a card book in my closet. I remember there was a holographic Kabutops in there!

    My first two Pokémon cards ever were a a Base Set Starmie and a Jungle Jigglypuff, both of which were in German if I recall correctly. I got them from a relative long before I started collecting Pokémon cards. Then Nintendo Power gave out a few Promos to tie in with the E-Reader, and that's when I actually started collecting.

    Cards I want to own? Hmm. That's a tough one. I would probably like to own a few more of the Shining Pokémon from Neo Destiny (though I am glad to have both Shining Raichu and Shining Mewtwo!). I also would like to have a complete set of the Crystal Type Pokémon (since I have only some from Skyridge and none from Aquapolis). And I never got any of those Basic Energy cards from HeartGold SoulSilver with the really cool artwork (see here for one example). I'm sure there's a ton of other cards I'd like to have, like full art Trainer Cards (because I don't have any in real life), probably some EX cards from relatively recent days, and some Primes from HGSS, you get the idea. Oh, and Secret Rare cards. Those are always cool...

    They'll be no good past the end of this month, so if you're not going to use them, please PM them to me and I'll put them to good use!

    One of my first cards was Jungle Holographic Wigglytuff. It was my prized card.

    First card was a Horsea from one of the earlier sets. Found it in a ball pit at a McD's. I didn't care about Pokemon at the time but I still thought it was cool. =P I liked trading for Pikachu cards and had a mini-collection going. Would've liked to trade for any of the flying/surfing/b-day Pikachu cards but never came across them. =/ And a card I wish I owned is Latias* (from the Deoxys expansion?). Was able to get a Latios* from a friend and wish I had the other to complete the set, especially since she's one of my favorites.

    My first were the cards they gave away when the Pokemon movies were first in theaters back in 1997, the Pokemon the Movie 2000 and Mewtwo ones. I still have them now actually, somewhere.

    My first cards were the EX Power Keepers Combusken and Base Set Vulpix, which I kinda just found on the ground and then decided to start collecting. Though I guess it's nice that what's now my favorite Pokémon type happened to have got me into the series in the first place.

    i don't remember the first regular card i pulled, but i remember my first holo. my very first booster pack i pulled a Ninetales the same day i got the theme deck with holo Nine. I got two cards of my favorite pokemon the first day i've mainly slowed down in collecting all the cards and stick to only my favorite pokemon. i have almost every Growlithe/Arcanine cards (just missing 3 total) and every Vulpix card except the new one and the McDonalds Japanese promo.

    when i was a kid there were three cards i wanted above all else: Lilypad Mew, Vending Charmander, and CoroCoro Shiny Mew. i got CoroCoro Lily Mew (non-mint) a few years back and got Charmander mint as a surprise extra when i got Bubbles Mew. Just need that elusive CoroCoro Shiny.

    Today overall cards released, i'm looking for: Delta Species Shiny Charizard from EX Dragon Frontier more than any other.

    kinda on topic, does anyone know the rules for checking for fakes on the newer cards? i only know the rules for the old ones.

    Current Hatched/Caught Shinies: Vulpix, Ninetales, Chansey, Vivillon
