    Exclamation Cofused...

    I don't know where thin=s should go so I'm just putting it here...

    I found a card of mine, it's a Nidorina, but the picture is a Nidoran male, is this a fake card, typo or did they just accidentily put the wrong picture?

    You're probably reading the card's name wrong. If not, then it's definitely fake. WOtC/Nintendo/TCPi would never make an error as big as this one.

    post a picture of the card so we can see it, im inclined to think its fake, but cant be sure... a quick way to check is to hold it and a card you know is real up to a light, if the card is noticably more transparent then its a fake

    Fake cards usually have messed up names. My friend had a fake Latios that was called Lation. So I'm calling it fake.

    There's no way that's real. Did you buy it at a dollar store? They are VERY likely to sell fakes. There are some simple ways to tell if it's fake, though.
    1. Check the back of the card. If the backgroung is darker, lighter, or the poke-ball is messed up in any way, assume its fake.
    2. Check the text on the card. Nintendo does not make very many printing errors, especially nowadays; so any text error is likely to prove the card fake.
    3.Check the texture of the card. Compare it with that of a card you KNOW is real. If the questionable card seems to feel rough or thick like cardboard or sandpaper; it is definitely a fake.
    4. Check the front and back of the card for alignment and simmetry. Nintendo generally does a good job in centering the picture, text, etc. If the picture or text seems to be more torwards one side; or if the text or picture lack in structure, the card is probably fake.

    There's no way they put in the wrong picture. You're either mistaken or it's fake.
