    Just to let you know that was already found out when they released the Japanese card. It is just a typo and wasn't fixed in translation I believe.

    On the card's entry, a typo has the word It spelled with two Is, making it say IIt instead of It.

    Ok I actually have a few questions.

    1. Is there a maximum hand limit?

    2. Do poke-bodies stack? i have 2 Amparophs Prime and I wanted to know if I had both of them out if the opponet would take 20 damage for each energy attached

    3. Can you only have 4 of special energy like Double Energy?

    4. What expansion sets are legal in tournament play? Ive only ever bought from Diamond and Pearl up but I wanted to know if older cards were legal.

    (Edit) 5. And lastly, with prize cards do you due the top 6 or whatever from your deck after you draw or do you pick your prize cards?

    Thank you for any help you can provide

    I don't think so.

    They stack unless the description specifically states that you can only apply one of them at a time. Ampharos Prime doesn't have that clause, so I'm assuming it can stack.

    3. Can you only have 4 of special energy like Double Energy?
    Yup. That's why they had to create a basic form of Darkness and Metal Energy.

    4. What expansion sets are legal in tournament play? Ive only ever bought from Diamond and Pearl up but I wanted to know if older cards were legal.
    I'm pretty sure nothing from before Diamond and Pearl (maybe even later than that at this point?) is still legal in official tournaments, unless of course the card has been reprinted since then.

    (Edit) 5. And lastly, with prize cards do you due the top 6 or whatever from your deck after you draw or do you pick your prize cards?
    Top six of your deck after shuffling but before you draw your first seven cards is how it was done in the Game Boy games. I hope those are faithful to how it's done in real life.


    Anyway, my question is this: what is the rarity of Prime and LEGEND cards in relation to previous gimmicky cards of this type, i.e. ex/LV. X? I was under the assumption that Primes were a little less rare than ex/LV. Xs while LEGENDs were more rare? Is that true at all?

    1. Just to confirm.. Does Dugtrio's Sinkhole (from Platinum) activate if you "force" your opponent to switch with moves like Push Down?

    2. Is shiny pokemon rarer than LvX?

    This reply targets anyone discussing the extra "i."

    Yes, people have noticed that. So far, we're not aware of any copy of the card that doesn't have the extra "i." Chances are that a correction of the misprint would be considerably rarer than the actual misprint, but at the moment no known correction exists. In essence, all the cards have that error.

    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.
    Yes, expansion packs and booster packs are the same thing. The Legendary Dog Legend cards have not yet been released in English.

    1. No, there is no maxiumum hand limit.

    2. Yes. Unless Bodies state specifically that it you cannot apply that body more than once during your turn, i.e. Nidoqueen RR, they do stack. Ampharos Prime's body will definitely stack.

    3. Yes, you can only have four of a special energy in your deck.

    4. Right now, Diamond & Pearl-onward is legal. In August, it's likely that only Platinum-on will be legal, but there's been no official confirmation of that.

    5. Your Prize Cards are the top six cards of your deck after you draw your opening hand.

    Primes are considerably less rare than Lv.Xs. Primes are about six per box, while Lv.Xs were two per box in most sets. Legends are about the same rarity as Lv.Xs. EXs are basically about as common as Primes as far as pull rates go, I believe. Perhaps slightly more common. Either way, with the exception of Meganium, I wouldn't go trading your Primes for random EXs.

    Meganium sucks.

    1. No, Sinkhole would not activate. Sinkhole only activates if your opponent announces a retreat; forcing them to switch does not qualify as a retreat. Good question.

    2. With the exception of the Red Gyarados from the new HeartGold & SoulSilver set, shinies are not rarer than Lv.Xs. And they are certaintly not worth more money.

    Depends on how good you want the deck to be. ^^;;; Your best bet right now would be to look at the Cost of a Good Deck thread and buy the staples listed there. And yes, you can only get packs of ten, unless you want to buy a theme deck.

    Lets say I want to buy any random 60 cards so I go out there and buy 6 of the 10 card packs right?
    So how much does 1 pack cost?
    and is there any place online where I can order 6 packs or any amount of un-opened cards (Places that can deliver in India)?
    What are theme decks?

    Theme decks are pre-made decks focusing on one or two different types of Pokémon. For example Zap! or Mind Flood. As for the rest of your questions.. I'm unsure of the answer :)

    You could buy 6 packs of random cards, but there's no way you could use just those 60 cards to build a deck.

    Around here, a booster pack costs around $4.

    As far as online retailers go, I'm not sure. I don't buy packs online. Sorry.

    When I got my first (and currently only) booster pack (a single pack of the "Platinum" expansion), one of the cards was Palkia G. Do things like that happen often?

    - You can usually expect to pay about $4 for an individual pack, sometimes less.
    - Sure, try a site like eBay, Amazon.com, or pokeorder.com for starters. Your local card shop will generally have better prices, though.
    - See below for the answer to your Theme Deck question.

    Palkia G isn't especially rare... I mean, your chances of pulling a Palkia G out of a random pack are probably somewhere around 1/15 or so, but it's not a really valuable card or anything.

    question about cards that share names, like Quagsire GL. Would his effect work on both if the both were the active and on the bench? Cause that would make him pretty much invincible as long as there is a active one and a benched one

    No, it doesn't. You're right, that would pretty much make him invincible. In that case, it applies only to the Quagsire GL that's on the Bench.
