    ROFL, it's not that expensive. Not even close in comparison to Magic. The secondary market is a sign of a healthy game. The guys coming in and saying "OH, this will fetch a nice price" is a sign of a healthy game. Games that are dying don't have secondary markets or expensive cards. This is all GREAT news for Pokemon.

    I hope it continues.

    Yay, an expensive Malamar that'll set me back a few bucks to get, because I refuse to not play with the promo if I can help it. The set's gonna be pretty fun.

    They broke the system. I thought the PR Promos were drawn by the same illustrator of the original cards.

    Huh, so that means no A Cards in Blister Promos

    Solid promos, was hoping Malamar was going to be one of them and since Psychic will be viable next set I really want the card to play.

    It might but we wont know for sure until the time of the pre-release events. When someone sells one on ebay, or pre-sale orders come up. I can guess that the Malamar promo will be worth coin.

    Alolan Exeggutor could be an A promo.
     
  11. I usually don't go to prereleases as they give you no cp
    I usually don't care about a cards artwork
    On an average day, I would go with Malamar
    But that Lycanroc artwork...
    LYCANROC I CHOOSE YOU
    and Lycanroc has a half decent attack anyways :l
     
  12. a lot of the people who are talking about money and these cards are talking about buying them, not selling them. though I do agree with what you stated, I think you may be misunderstanding what people are saying. if you take the youtube channel Deriums Pokemon as an example(at least 2 members) are die-hard pokemon fans: Andrew Mahone and Mikey. Again, I still agree with what you posted, but I think some misunderstanding was made

    Was Xurkitree mistranslated? Isn't it supposed to read "Cable ram"? It currently reads Cablegram

    Yeah, unless you pull good cards to combo for Malamar, I've always thought simplicity was best at pre-release. Lycanroc all the way.
     
  15. It was the art that did it for me

    This Lycanroc seems to be good, hopefully I'll get one.
