    Hi,
    I've got some cards from the EX Ruby & Sapphire, EX Sandstorm and EX Dragon sets that have the 'E-Reader' codes at the bottom. However, I've also got some cards from all the same sets that are exactly the same, but don't have the E-Reader codes at the bottom. I was wondering if this meant they were fake? I've searched Google, but can't find anything.
    I believe the cards that have the E-Codes say they were printed in 2003 at the bottom of the card (R&S and Sandstorm anyway, haven't checked the other card set) whereas the cards without E-Codes all say they were printed in 2004, so could they just be reprints?

    Yes, there are cards that don't have the E-Codes and were printed in 2004. Most likely those are just reprints.

    Thanks for clearing that up, I was going to sell the cards in a bundle on Ebay and just wanted to make sure they were authentic before I listed them.

    i was looking through some of my older cards, and found a Mr. Mime from Aquapolis, and saw it said '95b/147'. i then looked on the serebii database and the picture says '95a/147'. is there any reason for this? also, my card is an e-reader card.

    From what I remember (I might be wrong) it has to do with the e-reader barcode on it. IIRC you needed to scan both Mr. Mime cards to play a certain minigame.

    That Raichu is from the HGSS Trainer Kit. It's currently legal in modified and is perfectly playable.

    Thank you! Does modified mean decks that you've customised with other sets?

    Yes, but it refers to customizations of decks that are HG/SS and newer, plus the sets and promos that Skitty on Wailord listed

    Anyone know any good books on collecting Pokemon cards? Also, the best place to buy cards by themselves, like the older ones, and a cheep but good binder with pocket sheets to hold all my cards? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    I can get UT,UT, I can Egg move bread, I can iv and ev train, can get almost any Pokemon. Don't like hamcked, cloned, or RNGed Pokemon. My Pokemon are all legit. Can almost get any item. Would trade for , Genesect and any shiny Pokemon that is legit.

    Can only trade in 5th and 6th gen.

    Can now give pokerus in 6th gen only

    *Good* books on card collecting are hard to find. Unless the all the cards are no longer in production, many people don't bother as the book will soon quickly become out of date due to new cards being released. I would try to find a good website to look on. Books on *how* to collect cards are probably numerous.
    It depends what you mean by older cards- cards like the HG/SS series would probably be considered "old", yet many shops due still sell them. If you mean base sets/neo gen etc, I would try individual collectors shop-you won't get them in up-to-date ones. Older cards are also more expensive, and if you want packs that haven't been open, expect probably $9-14.
    However, if you or one of your parents has an ebay account, then older cards are easy to find. You can also buy folder this way to- usually when you by a folder they come with a few pocket sheets, but you can also buy these separately.

    Would a regular cheap binder work and just buy the sheets separate? Also, is there a 18 pocket sheet binder?

    Yep that would work just as well- I would suggest a thick cardboard binder which you can pretty much get anywhere-plastic is sometimes to flimsy and a thick one protects the cards. The standard pocket sheet has 9 slots, but 2 cards can fit into those slots so you have 18 cards in each pocket sheet. I haven't found one with 18 on each side (I think it would be a bit to small XD)

    My friend and I want to split a booster box, and I've seen various web sites that carry them. As far as reliable web sites go to buy them, what would you guys suggest?

    Ohhh, when I buy any booster boxes, I do try ebay. Usually the boxes can be pretty cheap-and saw a box going for about Ł36. I would try Amazon as well-they do good boxes. I'm sure there are independent game stores that have websites could order them in as well n_n

    I hadn't even thought of Ebay. I looked up Amazon and saw they have an Emerging Powers box for about $80. Looks nice, may be worth a buy.

    ok, I think this is the right place to ask this. I collect the cards, dont really play competitively, so I have recently tried trading cards. Does this sound like a fair trade to you guys?

    (Mine) Promo Meganium HGSS08 and Promo HGSS02 Lugia for a Fossil Zapdos (15/62) and an Ancient Mew? Im also talking value-wise, not gameplay wise.

    Essh, that is a hard one. What are the condition of the cards? If there all mint/nr mint, I would say the promos are over paying. I know this is strange, seeming as the other cards are older, but the Meganium is a Prime, and a lot of people pay good money for Primes. You can get Ancient (Sealed) Mews on ebay for as little as Ł2.00- people got an awful lot of them from movies, and sell them off slowly. People are also very "hard" to trade older cards to- usually older players look for them, but by now, they would have already got them. That's my opinion n_n

    I've just gotten around to collecting cards again, and I've noticed there are so many different types of rares and what not. I've seen words like Prime, EX, Lv. X, and all that, so my question is what are they exactly? It may sound like a stupid question, but for someone who hasn't collected since the Base/Fossil/Jungle Sets, the different terminology and values is a bit confusing.

    Okay, since you haven't been from base set, I'll give a quick explanation:

    Shining: These came from the originally from the neo sets. Cards include "Shining Charizard", "Shining Steelix" "Shining Tyranitar". They were the first "shiny" version of pokemon, and came out during gold/silver. These cards get big money especially if their in mint/nr mint condition. Pic.

    Ex's: These came during the release of Fire Red/Leaf Green (I seem to recall) Ex's were "ultra-rare" and sometimes powerful cards. Old ex's sometimes get more than new ones. Pic.

    Gold star: These came out near Ruby/Sapphire releases. These were mega rare cards. They were shiny versions of pokemon. Mew goes for a lot, so does suicune. If you can get one for under $20, you have yourself a real bargain. Pic.

    Lv.X: These came out with Pearl/Diamond. These again were rare and sometimes powerful cards. They were the first to have the pokemon "popping out" off the picture box. Pic.

    Primes: Came out during HG/SS- there were "dark" images of pokemon, and were fairly rare and fairly valuable. Pic.

    EX: These came out just recently. The EX pokemon are like the original ex's, but the EX is all capitalized. These have a fairly good move sets, and some go for over $17 on ebay. Pic.

    FA:Fa's are Full Arts. This is where the pokemon takes up the whole card. They're worth quite a bit- I hear the "N" FA is very sort after. Pic
