I NEED to know where they got these packs. I have a scratched and unscratched Gyarados, though in “Excellent condition” at best.

Don’t know too much about them. I asked the individual who I purchased them from about them, but he only knew what they were called and that they came in packs. Which, as we can tell, is apparently true.

Never seen any of the packs until this video though. I want the Gyarados he got!

The seller only sells to the UK, either @azulryu or @shizzlemetimbers if you want this lot just pm me and I can buy it for either of you, all I ask is the cost and the postage to your country of residence, nothing extra.

Wicked appreciated, but I already have a scratched and unscratched version. Haha. However, I’d be interested in finding out if there’s a Holographic version for Gyarados.

On the other hand, @woolsluk , could I contact you in the future for any potential items shipped only to the UK as a middle-man?

Of course @azulryu If I can help I will do it free of charge whenever you like.

@killerred09 Hopefully the price stays low! I keep seeing listings for close to 80-100 dollars for an entire pack!

the guy is selling packs as well for 5 which I could of won if I didnt forget

Are all cards flipside scratch off?
What is under the scratch off?

Yup. All the sides are flipside scratch off. I took a photo of my two Gyarados cards for comparison:

I’m pretty sure that it’s different for each type of card.

Edit: Relooking at this reminded me of something I read a little while back. I’m pretty sure I’m right on this but I could be wrong.

You basically played this like a card game. The scratch portions in the back were your attacks and the damage done by them. The scratch parts with the arrows on the left are your Hit Points. Not sure what the green is, though.

As far as I know, there exist 2 series of those cards (see below).

On the left we have the series 1 and on the right we have the series 2 (which is very hard to find).
You can notice some minor changes between the two series.

There are 36 cards per series, and I do not know if there exist other series to complete the 151 Pokémon …

I love how they write “Pockemon” :rofl:
