I collect the cards and play with them against whoever's bored.
I have all the Dark (Team Rocket) Cards from the original Base Set.
I also play the TCG rom on my computer. I loved it!
Now, I've heard that there are pokemon with 250 HP!
Well, that beats my 120 HP Charizard and my 100 HP Typhlosion.
I don't even have any of the newer cards from Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald/FireRed/LeafGreen yet...
But yes, I would go to any tournament...
I don't have the best of the best in my deck, but I could sure stand out for
a while in a battle, whether it's single or double. (Do they have double
battles in the TCG now?)
