Just making a thread wondering what Pokémon people never get cards of. I'm sure I'm not the only one who suffers from this strange phenomena XD
I have been collecting Pokémon cards ever since they first came out and I have noticed a really strange trend that has never EVER faltered.
With the exception of Call of Legends, I never came across any other Pidgeotto cards since the Gym sets or a Pidgeot since Jungle.
I have never had a Fearow card since the original Jungle set.
Also, since the Gym Challenge set I have never had another Arbok card.
I have never had a Clefable or Wigglytuff since the Jungle Set either.
I've never had a Vileplume since Gym Heroes or a Poliwrath since the original Base Set.
I have never had a Cloyster or a Kingler card since the original Fossil set.
The only Mew I've ever had were Promos that came with a DVD and a movie.
What I find even more interesting is that I at one point had over 30 Base Magnemite, 20-30 Base Staryu and Starmie, 20+ Pikachu, Caterpie, Weedle, Vulpix and Koffing all from Base Set and yet only ever 1 Base Metapod in my entire time collecting.
Now, in order to put this further into perspective - my boyfriend and I are quite card daft so we spend quite a lot on cards (twice this year we have spent £60 in GameStation on cards, but that was due to BW preview tins and then the actual release). Since D//P we buy every deck and every tin that ever comes out and several booster packs in-between. So, in the last five years out of everything he and I have bought, we have never had a single Fearow, Arbok, Clefable, Wigglytuff, Vileplume, Poliwrath, Cloyster or Kingler. Even at that, there are several more that would have followed the same trend, but thanks to some very good pre-made decks, it did not.
Does anyone else suffer from similar trends?
