Most of us starting collecting the Pokemon playing cards. Each Pokemon has its own special fighting abilities. Some grow, or evolve, into even more powerful creatures.

The Trading Card Game

In this trading card game, you are to try and collect each of all the cards. Although, not all Pokemon are easy to catch. The basic and most common cards are the Engery cards. The Pokemon, Evolution and Trainer cards come in four different varities. The common cards are marked with a circle, uncommon with a diamond and the rare cards are marked with a star. Some rare cards are printed using holographic foil. The holograhpic carda are the hardest to catch and collect. There has been a limited quality of first-edition cards printed and the have a symbol with the word "edition" printed over a circle with the number one in it.

There are 3 different ways to win in Pokemon. The first is to set aside 6 cards at the beginning of the game as prizes. Every time one of your opponent's Pokemon is Knocked out, you take 1 of your prizes and put it in our hand. When you have collected all your 6 prizes, you win the game. Second, when your opponent has no Pokemon to fight against yours, you win. And finally, if your opponent runs out of cards at the start of his turn then you win.

There are different kinds of cards as I mentioned above. They are:

  1. Basic Pokemon are your most important cards. They fight for you turn after turn against your opponents cards.
  2. Evolution Cards are played on top of your Basic Pokemon and sometimes on top of you evolution cards. They make your Pokemon bigger and more powerful.
  3. Energy Cards are attached to your Pokemon to give then the Energy they need to use in their battles.
