    Default Simple Questions thread

    This is just what it sounds like. Post any simple questions you have about card effects, or the TCG in general, here and I'll answer them to the best of my ability. Here are a couple example questions:

    So, get the questions rolling in. Also, if you see a question you know the answer to and you get there before me, by all means! Answer it!

    Absolutely. Roseanne's Research lets you search your deck for two in any combination of Basic Pokémon and Basic Energy cards. This could be one of the following:
    - One Basic Pokémon and one Basic Energy
    - Two Basic Pokémon
    - Two Basic Energy

    Do you need clarification on the definition of Basic Pokémon/Energy?

    Thanks.. I know that at least.. XD

    How about this, quite common one.. If you attach a Double Rainbow Energy to Salamence (Stormfront) which has another 2 water energies.. Will it provide Fire and Water energy at once? Is Double Rainbow Energy discarded as Water & Fire energy during its attack?

    I don't remember Salamence's specific text off the top of my head, but yes, DRE would provide both a Fire and a Water Energy, if you wanted it to. As far as the discard question goes, if it says to discard two energy, then yes, discarding DRE would satisfy that. If it says to discard two energy cards, you would need to discard two energy cards. Period.

    Hope that helps.

    Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I brought my first ever pack of the HeartGold/SoulSilver cards today. Literally, first pack, and I got this:



    Now, two questions.

    Do I need the other half of the card to play this?
    And, not really important but, my friend said this was one of the "four rarest cards of the set", is that true? (Need to know for trading and stuff)

    Yes, this is a fine place to ask that.

    Alright... first off, it's pretty rare. It's not one of the four rarest cards in the set, but it's tied with three other cards for the #3 spot. Yes, if you wanted to actually play this in a game you would need the other half.

    Rarest card in the set would be Alph Lithograph. Then Red Gyarados. After that would come Ho-Oh Legend (two cards) and Lugia Legend (also two cards). You have in your possesion half of Lugia Legend. Nice pull!

    Thanks for answering!
    Now I just have to ether keep buying boosters 'til I get the other half, or buy the card of someone... which would probably cost more than a booster. xD

    Half of a Legend card will generally run around $20-$25 right now. Good, considering it means your card is worth more, but bad considering it won't be especially cheap for you to obtain the other half.

    I don't know if this is the correct place to ask this but I was wondering if the Legend cards have been released in English yet.



    If so how do I go about obtaining one? (Booster Pack, Tins, Poster Pack, something else)

    Yes, they have. Unless you want to go on eBay and simply buy one, the only way for you to obtain a Legend card would be to buy packs of the new HeartGold & SoulSilver expansion.

    BTW, Takoto, I overestimated that card's price a little bit. Half of a Legend wil run you about $10.

    I'm definently not buying one off of Ebay, that's just crazy.

    Are the HeartGold and SoulSilver expansion packs the same as the booster packs?

    Thanks.

    I also found some cool Legendary Dog Legend cards but I highly doubt that they have been released in English yet.
