Most Prestigious Pokemon Cards

I need WSOs help in ranking the tiers of Pokemon cards. I figured that I would send them in my thank yous for interviews but I don't want to waste high prestige cards on low prestige firms.

I was thinking something along the following:
*** Japanese Mint 1st Ed Charizard (Auto-offer from ANYWHERE but have to play this card carefully)
1. Charizard
1.5 Blastoise/Venasaur/Alakazam
2. Hitmonchan/Scyther/Zapdos
3. Articuno/Moltres/Kangaskan
4. Machamp/Electabuzz/Pinsir
.
.
100 Ratatata/Pidgey/Diglet

I'll keep the OP edited with rankings as I see fit. In general I'd count 1st ed vs normal ed as bumping up half a grade. So 1st ed Blastoise =~= normal Charizard.

Please remember I'm talking about Pokemon CARDS and not the gameboy games.

Serious responses only, I have SBs to give.

Dude you are completely understating the prestige of a Zapdos. He's right up there as 1-a next to Charmander. You should definitely only send the ratatats and sparrows to the boutiques, save Zapdos / charmander for GS

Make them holographic Japanese Zapdos / Charmander cards in plastic sleeves and you can bump them up to KKR analysts. Ratata and Sparrow are the high school kids who makes fun of boutique banks on WSO

This is quite sad but one of my child hood memories is playing poker on r/b/y (can't remember which one) and using master ball to capture zapdos then feeling conflicted about not being able to use it on mewtwo later. Funny the things our memory retains.


omg exact same situation, only I used it to capture Articuno. Damn bird wasn't even useful!

Lima:

when it comes down to it training a dratini to a dragonite was way more painful plus a much bigger pay off in the long run


Nah man. At least Dratini had attacks that could attack. Only reason Dratini -> Dragonite was gruesome was because you had to fucking capture a Dratini (or save fifty thousand coins).

1) Mew

1a) Charizard

Holy fucking shit dude, what in god's earth is wrong with you. The only mews they printed in the target sets were given out at fucking stop & shop. Do you really think a GS MD wants a fucking handout from bitch-ass stop&shop. Maybe I could forgive this kind of scrub behavior if you were talking about the game but I clearly mentioned in the OP that I was discussing the cards.

@"Lucky Charms" Pickachu is a classic but his cards were just very subpar value wise and worse I believe they were commons.
@"BEAST MODE TRADER" I think you mean Charizard. Charmander was cute though.
@"TwoThrones" I think you're underestimating what a feeder Venasaur is for Charizard (look at their pokemon powers, the synergy is unreal)
@"propchop" I updated the original post to reflect this.

I went to a non-target, but I have a fossil version mint condition Zapdos. Do I have a shot at a BB?

Also, I'm jealous of those who have a Charizard. My life long dream of owning one will have to wait until I make 7 figures at my future PE firm.

Dec 16, 2014 - 7:14am

Totally get what you're saying but when it comes down to it training a dratini to a dragonite was way more painful plus a much bigger pay off in the long run, just didn't look as badass. Plus I had a shiny dragonite as a kid

Dec 16, 2014 - 12:16pm

@"JPMortgage" I'll have to respectfully disagree, owning a Gyarados does not show long term commitment or even work ethic. Any Ash Ketchum wannabe can, at the start of a Pokemon battle, switch out a level 2 Magikarp for a level 45 Venusaur. At the end, the XP points are split between both Pokemon without Magikarp having to take a single hit.

In short, "training" a Gyarados only proves that it had powerful friends at a young age. Toss that thing into a real gym battle and it'll crack quicker than a jumping Exeggcute.

You spelled their names wrong btw... aka high school kids trolling WSO again.

I'll be updating the OP at EOD so anyone who has cards that they think I've missed let me know.
I'm also wondering if certain cards would appeal to different cultures at different firms. I'm not positive on how to create a culture index but I think the pokemon type (fire/psychic/electric) would probably be a good starting point.

I also currently have the cards just in generic hard plastic cases. I'm wondering if cases with a stylized back are "in" or not. Trendy? Tacky?

I still have some SB's to give. The Gyrados find was pretty incredibly so if anyone else can produce something like that I'd be grateful.

I actually had a book as a kid that listed a value for each card, so I was able to value my pokemon "portfolio". I think they're in my mom's basement somewhere. But anyways, if I remember correctly the most valuable cards in order were: 1. Charizard 2. Blastoise 3. Venosaur 4. Alakazam 5. Zapdos

What's the consensus on Team Rocket or gym badge editions?

I rarely top post but I'd like to think that I've given decent advice to people so I'd like help. I'm ~40. I have a 7 year old son who's recently gotten into Pokemon. It did not exist when I was young and it means as much to me as sfljkasljfdl. I honestly can't say if it's a person place or thing so wtf is it? Is he playing cards? Why are ~8 cards $4 for shiny things? Can I guide him to corner the market while he's in first grade (my goal) and fuck over the kids on the bus (again, my goal) to get their good cards? Do they do things with the numbers on the top of the cards? Is EX really cool?

How's it work WSO?

It's also a video game, and you can play the Pokemon (which are animal like creatures btw) that you train in the game against your friends. Preferably with bets on the line. You can teach him to win money and such that way, but the cards are actually better for his overall development (more difficult to master, lots of math and statistics, etc). A ton of quant guys grew up playing this game (and other similar card games like Magic) in their formative years. I'm a good looking, charismatic A type, so I was video game competition all the way :P

Dec 17, 2014 - 5:01pm

Pokemon is a card and video game similar to yugioh and magic. What I used to do as a 7 year old back in the yugioh and pokemon heyday of the 2000s was I would get good cards that were Japanese (usually cheaper) and say that I could read them and what their "special effect" was. Now if your son is into the video games of pokemon they are pretty much everywhere and if you wanted to buy him used gameboy games you're in good luck because pokemon was the highest selling gameboy game ever and there are tons of used games of pokemon red, blue, gold, etc. They also make pokemon for the latest nintendo handhelds which I'm sure he'd probably want to get since that's what his friends have. A little fyi on the games is that in each generation there will be 2-4 different pokemon games that are literally identical to the other except for a small handful of pokemon being exclusive to that version. I know pokemon is a kiddy game but you'd be surprised at how old some people are that play it. I used to play in tournaments and there would always be a couple of 45 year olds playing who could beat anyone since they had more money to buy cards. I don't play any card games outside of blackjack and poker now but I think I will eventually add a pokemon game or 2 to my nintendo 64 or gameboy advance collection. I used to have 2 pokemon games for the gameboy but I traded them in years ago.

Couldn't tell you much about the cards or the cartoon, but it's a surprisingly deep and decent video game.

There's so much stuff about Pokémon that could be said, that it's kind of ridiculous.

If you want your kid to beat all the kids at school in the card game, I'd make sure he has an awesome deck. Google it. There's a lot out there. http://www.wikihow.com/Build-a-Winning-Pokemon-Deck
The cards cost so much because kids wanting unnecessary and ridiculous stuff means tons of money for companies because they know that parents do whatever they want to make them happy. Does it matter that it costs 3 cents to make everything? No. You should be able to ebay or pick up a bunch of cards on the cheap from flea markets and the like. Hell, I probably still have some Pokémon and Magic the Gathering cards at my parents house in Michigan.

As far as the types of cards go, the holographic ones are more rare, and are only on the better of the pokemon. As a kid, the more holographic cards you have, the better. Unless of course it comes to actually playing, because then it can mean squat, because it's not optimal to have a deck full of these cards because they're useless in the beginning.

Learning strategy's for gameplay that go with the type of deck that you have is the best approach. I used to play magic the gathering and this was extremely important, it's not as important in Pokémon as it is meant for kids, but definitely useful.

As far as the video games go, there's a million of them. For each generation there is always multiple different colors, which as has been said, are basically identical. The first ones in the US, were red and blue, which were about 99% identical. Then yellow came out, which was also basically the same exact thing as well, but you started off with Pikachu. I don't know what the latest generation of colors is, but you'll only need to buy your kid one of them, because they'll be the same.

I was a kid during the pokemon and yugioh dynasty of the late 90s and early 2000s and looking back it was fun game even though the cards were expensive as hell and the card shops were cesspools haha. Luckily my uncle was a principle so he used to give me and my cousins a ton of cards he took away from the bad kids whose parents never picked up the cards at the end of the school year.

Dec 17, 2014 - 5:08pm

Dingdong, there are two things to consider - is he playing the card game or is he playing the video game. The video game, which created the entire phenomenon, is easy to understand. The card game, is a bit more complex. The easiest comparison I can make is Magic: the Gathering. At 40something, you might know Magic: the Gathering, but if you don't, it's okay. Essentially, the game is an exercise in both strategy and resource management. There are two components to the game - collecting cards (getting rares, multiple copies of cards, being able to build a deck that uses multiple strategies, etc.) and building a deck to use those cards. I grew up playing Magic: the Gathering and will play Hearthstone (Magic Lite made by Blizzard to be played online) on occasion.

These games are all about resource management and strategies. I'm not as familiar with Pokémon as I am Magic, but I can only guess that the premise is similar. Your deck needs to consist of a combination of "Mana" which is basically everything used to summon creatures, cast spells, etc., "Creatures", which are what you use to attack your opponent with, "Enchantments" which are cards that either modify the rules for the playing field or add/remove abilities from creatures until the Enchantment is removed from play, and "Spells" which are basically cards that can do anything but only remain in effect for the duration of a single turn. Deck building is based around one or two strategies. Three main types exist, the rest are all subtypes. They are Agro, which is do as much damage as fast as possible, Control, which is trying to screw with your opponents ability to do anything, and Combo, which is when you use multiple cards together for a synergy and base your deck around it. Combos would be a Lord of the Pit/Breeding Pit, Channel/Fireball, any one of these great combos, or something like a Silver Deck. Based on your strategy, you start compiling a deck list and then reduce it down based on a number of factors, such as casting cost, the number of cards you have at a certain casting cost, does it fit with strategy and relative usefulness and the ratio of Mana to Non-Mana cards you have in your deck. At that point, any further cuts need to be weighed in accordance with the deck build. If he plays as opposed to collects, this is the way to screw his friends over - better decks and strategy.

From a collectors point of view, the only way you can fuck over his friends is by learning which cards are rare and hard to get, and then having him trade for it. Cards come in individual sets and, depending on the game, a group of sets makes up a block. Blocks are important, but not for the discussion at hand. There should be a master rarity list online for every set that is released. This way you can see what cards you have and how rare they are. Certain cards, for example, while they may be common, as soon as they are Holographic (or meet other requirements such as being EX, Full Art, a Secret Rare, etc. - and yes, I actually Googled the rarities for Pokemon to see if there was more than just a Shiny card and a regular card because most games just keep it at Holographic/Shiny and Non-Holographic) , they are automatically rarer than their original. This means there is a bit more value to those cards. Just be aware there is a set called Pokémon-ex as well. So don't confuse an EX card with an -ex set card.

In terms of what the cards mean, if you look at the card I've hot linked here, it's pretty easy. In the Top right corner, that is the amount of "Health" a creature (denoted as HP) has and what type of creature (denoted by the colored Circle) . On the bottom right corner of the card, you will see a Set Name and Number, meaning that this is Card XXX of Set YYY. This ties back to the actual master list of cards I referenced. In the center, is the list of abilities, their cost to use and how much damage they do. With respect to costs, the "white circle" is colorless - meaning "Energy", or Mana or whatever you want to call it, of any color can be used. If the circle has a color and a symbol that's not the star, then it requires that specific energy. Damage is used to destroy creatures which is a condition on winning. On the bottom of the card, you will see "Weakness", "Resistance" and "Retreat Cost". Weakness is whether or not your card takes extra damage against a specific creature type. Resistance is whether or not your card takes less damage against a specific creature type. Retreat Cost is how much it costs to remove the creature from active play. In terms of how to play the game, read the rules. I don't understand them at all.

As far as ~$4/Pack goes, I'm not sure you can buy them for much cheaper. The cards aren't made by Wizards of the Coast any more, so going to a store that hosts authorized and WotC sponsored tournaments for the various WotC produced games might not net you a discount like I was originally thinking. Still, it might be worth checking out anyway - most places that host WotC-sponsored tournaments may also have some sponsored Pokemon Tournaments. Usually, the places that hold these tournaments end up getting a better bulk purchase deal from the game company and can pass a slight discount (instead of $4/Pack, it's $3.50/Pack). In terms of 8 Cards in a pack, that's the standard for any non-Magic: The Gathering game. It has been that way for almost all games of this type since Decipher released the 3rd Expansion for the Star Wars Customizable Card Game, with Magic: the Gathering being the only one that still does the Standard 15 pack.

Wow... I realize I've totally shown how much of a nerd I am with this. I used to play Magic: the Gathering years ago and I guess it never quite leaves. If you have any more questions, PM me. I'll do my best to explain everything.

Haha I didn't want to show my true nerd like you did.

My favorite deck I had was my shadow deck. Everything I did had shadow on it. They all only dealt little in damage, but they couldn't be stopped so it was just me doing a tiny bit of damage every turn and then I had every circle of protection. I couldn't be hurt or stopped!

I never did do any tournaments, I wish I would have. It would have tested my decks/strategies better instead of just playing against the same 10-15 people.

Adapt or die, What? I used to play Magic: the Gathering when I was younger. You'd be surprised at how much of this came from just my own experiences with that. With the exception of actually looking at a Pokémon card (and almost all card games have some variant of this style card), and checking the type of rare cards that exist, all of this came from playing during middle school and the part of High School. After High School, I put most of that away for college. Hearthstone is the only thing comparable, but even then, it's more of a way to kill 20 minutes when I don't want to do anything and there is nothing on TV.

Skinnayyy, someone would eventually do it. I don't mind showing my true nerd every so often. I never played Pokémon, so I can't speak to that - but there was a place 20 minutes from where I grew up that did Magic tournaments every weekend, so I was able to play and really hone my skills. Plus, I had a number of friends who played, so it was easy to screw around, build a new deck, try it and then test it at a tournament. After Sophomore year of High School though, I just found I didn't have as much time for it so I stopped playing Magic.

I have some advice about how your son can fuck over the kids on the bus.

Back in the day when people couldn't just google w-e they wanted, I would just trick people and trade up by having an older kid (plant) who had all the holo's (holographic/shiny cards) tell people how good of a deal they were getting.

ie: I want X card. I offer A,B,C (bad deal) and my older friend would jump in and say dude you're so dumb! I'll give you x for just A,B (the trick is you can't give him 2$ cards for a 100$ card but if you offer him a 20$, 30$ and 25$ card have an older guy back you up you were golden).

I don't know how relevant that is today though when most 6 year olds just google "x card for sale" and can find out pretty quick what its worth. I guess he could say "you have to decide now or no deal". Haha good luck man this thread gave me a good laugh.

Nah man Yu-gi-oh in 2015 is money-pit. Their business model now is to come out with overpowered cards/themes every year, ban all the good cards the next year so you can't use those decks, and come out with new over-powered cards the following year. Only the most hardcore teens play Yu-gi-oh today (my cousin). Its not mainstream like it was in the early 2000's.

when I was your sons age, pokemon was blowing up. I played it on my gameboy and trained my charizard. for the cards, I don't think most kids care about playing the game, its more about collecting them and trying to trade them for rare, cool looking cards. I just wanted to collect them like sports cards, and get the better end of trades, I once traded a younger kid a dugtrio for a blastoise (they were both rare cards) knowing I got the better end of the deal, and his dad made me trade it back to him.... be aware, if your kid fleeces another kid, the parent might get involved.

Hilarious thread. Trading pokemon cards is where it all starts. Your kid will learn the art of making deals. I rose up the ranks in my elementary school through a few key trades. Be careful about ripping someone off too hard because the regulators (i.e. parents) will step in and unwind the trade--as mentioned above. To protect consumers pokemon cards were banned at my elementary school. I took a big hit when the government (i.e. vice principal) caught me trading cards in the bathroom and confiscated some of my best cards. I never really recovered from that, so I started playing Magic cards. Interestingly, I sold 20 Magic cards a couple years ago for $360 bucks as I was raising funds for my business, haha. Those 20 magic cards were the result of one of the best trades I made in 4th grade (okay, technically I stole them, but still...).

Teach your son Magic the Gathering. It is Degrees of Magnitude more complex, and better for his logic and imagination. Also there is a more sophisticated market surrounding MTG. For example the bit Coin Exchange Mt. Gox began as a Magic The Gathering exchanged (Magic The Gathering Online Xchange).

When he introduces this EVOLUTIONARY (poke'-pun) game he will de-value the local Pokemon-trading-card market at his elementary school, and be able to trade whole decks of Pokemon cards for a single rare (or even uncommon) MTG card. Then he can sell online for 10 x value.

The downside is he will likely grow out of Pokemon, apart from some lingering nostalgia, but he may become consumed by MTG if he forgets his original intention was to "fuck other kids on the schoolbus", and eventually progress into Dungeons and Dragons & Warhammer.

On second thought, just put him on a football team.

Sorry can't help much, I only play the games. Which is awesome. And nostalgic. And awesome.

I actually tried to learn how to play the cards but it just wasn't as exciting as, say, Yu-Gi-Oh's 'Duel Monsters' (prev known as 'Magic & Wizards'). Maybe because Pokemon was originally designed for an RPG game, while Duel Monsters was a card game from the start?

Back in middle school, I remember Magic getting big with the 6th graders. Us older kids would kick a soccer ball into their games which would send the cards flying. Someone would grab a few cards and sell it to some other 6th graders during the next recess. Not my finest hour but no nerd was going to be given an easy time on my watch.

Dec 17, 2014 - 5:42pm

Haha... Damn. That's serious business. I never saw that when I played. The older kids were into MtG just as much as we were in Middle School.

Dec 17, 2014 - 5:43pm

I recall from highschool, there would be a group of your serious nerds all seeking refuge from tormentors, playing magic in some off-the-beaten-track part of the building after school. It would be 2 rows of kid sitting indian style on the floor facing each other with tons of cards spread out and a few dice, etc. At least 2 kids in the group would have rolling airport carry-on style backpacks.

You wouldn't even know this was going on unless you had to drop by the yearbook staff room or random room off the wrestling gym after school for some reason.

Dec 17, 2014 - 5:44pm

Yup. I remember that. They would hang out in the library or the parts of the school that were empty. Except, I knew a ton of kids that had the Rolling Airport backpacks because it was the HS I went to and they were super serial about their studies thanks to their helicopter parents.

I find it funny you mention the wrestling gym. I wrestled in High School, and we would play Magic to kill time at tournaments (between rounds, or while waiting for the intermissions to clean stuff up, etc.), or while waiting around until weigh ins and then before we had to get ready.

hahahaha. Dude at my middle and elementary school there were kids that literally tried to look like the yugioh characters or other anime characters. Never played magic but "tormentor" is from Yugioh. That card is called Obelisk the tormentor and he is a BSD for yugioh. His pokemon equivalent would be like lugia or charizard.

Just wondering what your favorite pokemon/moveset is. It's good to relive our childhoods once in a while, and why not today on the anniversary of Pokemon B/W 2 (give or take a week).

From traditional red/blue/yellow, definitely Machamp or Hypno. You could plow through basically anyone with ease.

For the later versions, Mudkip w/ everstone - too op w/ water gun + growl combo.

Thoughts?

I was the kid who cloned 6 Lugia's and had shit like Hyper Beam and Aeroblast on all of them. People hated me, until my friend finally evolved Tyranitar. He trained it to 100 and proceeded to smack my clones and all the kids around my house. Tough times lol.

If You Could Choose Any Pokemon As a Lifelong Companion, Which One Would You Choose? (Originally Posted: 06/06/2014)

No legendaries or ditto.

Personally, I'd probably choose a Dragonite to fly and just wreck everyone. Either that or a Ninetails (no homo).
